more party planning details


Thank you for your sweet comments on my post yesterday.  I agree with those of you who are frustrated with the fashion industry not focusing on those of us who are not twenty something and a size 2.  You have made me brave enough to make the fashion at 50 posts a regular thing. 

Now on to a sneak peak of some party details from my get together this Friday.

                                                                          (via pinterest)

First off of course is one of the inspiration photos from my Halloween fun pinterest board.  I love so much about this room and table setting and will be incorporating a couple of things into my party d├ęcor this Friday.

I will be using orange and black but I want to soften it a bit with creamy whites and burlap.  I made up some tissue paper flowers to hang out of plain orange and a fun black and cream polka dot I found at Target.

I love the paper straw craze and have been using them for my quilting group gatherings so I went on Etsy and ordered a few more.  I am crossing my fingers that they make it here before Friday...

The miniature paper cupcake liners will be used in a way you aren't expecting but that's all I can say about that now. 

I finished the goody bags for my guests and will be working on little recipe holder books for them today.  This is too much fun to be called work.  I am one lucky lady.

I will be back soon to let you in on how this qualifies as a job...wink, wink.

Happy Tuesday!

xo, Patty
