Happy almost Halloween! My daughter is dressing up as the Queen of Hearts because she just finished reading Alice in Wonderland and fell in love with it.
She didn't want an off-the-shelf costume so I bought her a tutu on Etsy (that is supposed to arrive by Wednesday, fingers crossed), and her plan is to transform a red tee shirt and a white tee shirt into something unique. I have a feeling there will lots of cutting, glueing, and fabric markering between now and Saturday. This is the first year she's wanted to make part of her costume. Do your kids make their costumes or do you buy them?
I'm super excited to be speaking at the BASH Conference in January in Phoenix.
I attended the conference last year and had a great time seeing old friends, meeting friends in person I've known online for years, and getting to talk to lots of new people in the party space.
Here's an awesome idea for your Halloween party: serve candy in candy bowls (see what we did there).
Your guests will love this twist. Plus, these white chocolate ghost bowls are simple to make and your kids can even help... unless they start using the water balloons for actual water balloons. Then send them outside.
Happy mid-October. I read an article today that says the rains are coming to California! We sure need it, but the magnitude of rain could be scary. I think it might even rain on Halloween this year. What would a rainy Halloween look like? Has anyone experienced one?
Thank you to everyone who added your parties to our site this week. Once again I'm blown away by what you do, and how much love you have for your families!
