Dear blog, I'm sorry you've been neglected. I'm sorry that I haven't been paying you much attention. Halloween kicked my boo-tay and I'm STILL trying to put things away, lots of PTSA meetings, errands, flu shots, etc. You think you are lonely, my house (and the dog) has a layer of dirt that is just not ok. So I'm giving you a little love now with a wrap-up of very pretty Halloween parties and then officially move into Thanksgiving.
I love looking at gorgeous shoots with amazing camera tricks, insane props, beautiful people sitting in a picture-perfect field, a crew of 20 to help set up, etc. But that ain't what happens in the real world, so I'm dedicating my last Halloween post to parties that kicked ass, have lots of DIY ideas and personal touches, and didn't have an army of 20 to make it happen (although I know we so wish we had one!) Now, that's a party!
Aren't the bat pops from And Everything Sweet just awesome? And I love her background.
She was having some serious straw issues but I'm glad Lizard & Ladybug worked it out for her carnival party. Check out those owl cupcakes! Owls are hot this season!
More owl cuteness and this season's hot purple from Moo Moo's & Tutus.
From the awesome cupcake tower to cute accents, A To Zebra Celebrations focused on witch hats for her party and it knocked it out the park!
Alrighty then, moving on, here are a few (and some of them free!!!) Thanksgiving and Fall printables that are out there in the blogosphere. There is no need to forget Thanksgiving, it's often the red-headed step-child of the holiday season and I think it's the best! It's the only holiday that you can eat out of control and not feel bad! Aren't you looking at all that Halloween candy right now and feeling your teeth fall out? Doesn't Christmas make you dread New Year's resolutions of burning off all those Christmas cookies? I know right?
Paper & Cake's fall collection includes jar labels and recipe cards.
Love The Day's Happy Harvest printables.
I'm in love with Frog Prince Paperie's kids' table collection.
The Thanksgiving Feast collection from Anders Ruff and can't forget their baked goody labels.
Fall favor tags from It Is What It Is.
