Let me start by saying that Halloween is my favorite holiday. Since the last week of August, I have been making weekly trips to Michael's, Jo-Anns and Target, looking for the most original Halloween decorations to add to my 7+ crate collection.

For Halloween, I co-hosted a party with a friend at her house. Thought I'd share a few of our fun decorating tips:
|Replace your family portraits with portraits of movie stars and superheros.|
|See no evil, Hear no evil, Speak no evil skeletons.|
|We loved the construction paper bat Pinterest trend!|
|Convert a cluttered office desk into a spooky setting with a white sheet and construction paper chains|
Martha Stewart's Spooky Fence Post Deep Edge Punch helped us decorate mini water bottles for our refreshments--because it can be a challenge to keep a bowl of punch filled for a party of over 40 people.
|Kid's Halloween Activity Table|
|The Magician's Assistant|
|Oh the fun things you can find at Good Will.|
With our large group, we decided potluck was the way to go. Along with the invitation, we included a ticket stub with the following message:
To our Wonderful Guests,
Please Bring a dish to share and provide the food category when you RSVP. There will be a prizes for the best dressed and spookiest dishes!
|Best Costume received the skeleton trophy (purchased at Spirit Halloween.)|
Best Dish received a pair of hand towels (purchased at Target.)
