Last Minute Fall & Halloween Invites

Last minute Fall and Halloween invitations are on sale at 10% off! You've got just enough time to send out your invites for your killer Halloween party or to plan ahead for Thanksgiving. Ready to get into party mode? Me too! I'm still cracking away at my Halloween costume for this year. What are you going to be? Tweet me and let me know!

Having a Halloween party without costumes is impossible. If you are hosting a Halloween party then you are expecting at least some of your guests to show up in costume, and as the host they are expecting you to take the lead. Help your guests out by giving them a theme to work with, or some costume ideas. You can go retro, futuristic, movie themed, or anything else that strikes your fancy.

Ghost CoupleThe most important part of a costume party is immersion in the theme, especially for adult parties. If your guests feel like they are stepping into a little world of Halloween, the costumes they come in will feel fun instead of forced. The more elaborate the costume the better, so be sure that you have yourself dressed up without taking short cuts. That does not mean that you need to spend a fortune on your costume. Chances are you or someone in your household has enough make-up to avoid spending excess on overpriced Halloween face paint kits. You can also create brilliant colored creams by crushing up eye shadow and mixing it with a little lotion or petroleum jelly (like Vaseline). Or, mix a little with eye shadow into some lip gloss or balm if you plan on using it on your lips.

Don't be afraid to make alterations to old clothes to get a desired effect. Cutting up an old t-shirt to create a bandana, armband, or waist wrap. The more layers and details you can add, the better your costume will appear. Halloween costumes are all about fun and creativity, not the amount of money you spend!

Halloween Candy Buffet InvitationAnother thing that I am an absolute sucker for is gingerbread houses. Don't laugh—I would make one for every holiday if I could! One of the major reasons that kids love Halloween so much is the candy loot they get from trick-or-treating. As they are jumping in sugar-overloaded joy, you are probably cringing on the after effects of eating so much sugar—everything from the mood swings to the tooth aches. The real question is, how can you put that candy to good, fun use without being eaten and have the kids agree willingly? You already know where I'm going with this!

Encourage your kids to keep a few pieces of their favorites, and use the rest to make haunted candy houses, ghoul statuettes, or their very own nightmare creations! Who says that gingerbread houses are restricted to Christmas? If Jack Skellington can take over Christmas Town, then your kids can too. You can even host a Halloween party where you provide some well-selected candies for just the occasions. Be sure to have a variety of colors, a bit of frosting or marshmallow cream for glue, and some interesting sizes. The more candy involved, the more elaborate the result!

Celebrate & Give Thanks

Fall is a season that always inspires me. It breathes life into my decorations, into my artwork, and into my actions.  That may sound a bit ironic, considering that fall is a time during which most life fades, dies, or becomes dormant. To me, I see the colors and the chill wind as a sign of change and can’t help but reflect that change into my daily life.
 
After the fun of Halloween has passed and before the craze of the Christmas holiday begins, there is an in between moment of autumn that I think we all can enjoy. The air that you breathe in is crisp. The world around you has changed into a magnificent spectacle. Perhaps most importantly, people prepare for their Thanksgiving feasts.
 
The magic of the season, very different from the sparkles of Santa Claus or the haunts of Jack Nightmare, is the generosity that fall automatically inspires. Turkeys are donated, canned good drives begin, and people begin to share what they have simply because they can. It is the spirit of Thanksgiving that moves me to action, as well as it does for many others. As we prepare for another year of turkey, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, and stuffing I hope that you also have the opportunity to appreciate the things in life that inspire you.
