Who doesn't love a good party? Well obviously you guys cuz you're taking part in Fall-O-Ween! So before we get going ... what do you think Terri is up to today?
When my boys were small, all of my mom friends would get together and we'd create these elaborate Halloween parties. And even though we told ourselves it was to enrich the memories our children would have, it was mostly to keep ourselves occupied while we all stayed home raising kids. You can only do so much laundry, you know?
So when I went to the Bachman's Idea House, I was sick that I hadn't thought of some of the stuff they did!
They had turned the garage into party central ... it was spooky looking and cool. No one would be able to resist the sweets buffet.
They thought of everything you'd want to snack on and then packed it in stinkin' cute containers.
I thought it was interesting how they took items from the science lab and added them to their display.
Great idea on how to use those framed fotos you found in Grandma's attic!
These bats were great. They were cut from black paper but then pushpinned into the wall with the wings pinned to look like they were all flying.
I could see doing this on the porch for Halloween ... it was fun looking and easy to do. The bats weren't all the same size so they really had some dimension.
On the front porch, everything was set up for pumpkin carving.
On the lawn, it was fun and games, too!
Pumpkin bowling and the pumpkin derby looked like so much fun!
If you wanted to get away from the Halloween party, there was a dining area on the other side of the lawn. I'd love to have this by our firepit.
I want a do over. I want my kids to be little again so I can have a Halloween party just like this! Or maybe ... maybe I'll hold out for some darling little grandkids that I can dress up and party with at Halloween!
