Before we begin, I'd just like to point out that this is my 100th post :))
Vanessa's fifth annual Halloween party is approaching....
It's this Saturday :)
And I am so excited!
Amazingly, it's perfect timing too, because this upcoming weekend is a three day weekend for us. So that means we get Monday off! Horray!
I have been surfing Pintrest in search of inspiration for a Halloween party that I plan to pull together last minute. I find that when I plan for something, it never turns out quite how I anticipated, and never lives up to my expectations. So I have a new game plan: if I don't have any expectations, I won't have to worry about disappointment.
I'm still deciding if I should do just a generic Halloween party--you know, the typical witches, dress-up, etc...or if I should pick a theme. Harry Potter would be a great theme, and I am a diehard fan.
Anyway, I'm going to share some of my inspirations with you :)
All of the pictures were found on my Pintrest.
I am really gathering inspiration from huge chunky sweaters and warm drinks. Yesterday I had a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks, and we bought some pumpkin spice flavored instant coffee for home. It's been great, getting to enjoy warm drinks for once. TODAY WAS OUR FIRST RAIN OF THE SEASON!!! I am just so thrilled. We hardly ever get rain. It felt like summer lasted forever....
This is just beautiful :)
Books + autumn = bliss.
Right now I am obsessing over the Twilight series. Of course, I have already read the series and seen all the movies, I am just in the mood right now :) I read the first book in two days and I'm almost done with New Moon. I started that one two days ago as well :)
This is also beautiful. I love the pop of the orange against the rainwashed streets :)
And what about this fall inspired kitchen!!!
I see it in my future....
There are also some great Harry Potter autumn inspirations. I love the thought of traversing Hogesmede with an autumn chill nipping at my ears, bundled in a Hogwarts sweatshirt....
Particularly Honeydukes :)
(This has got to be my favorite picture ever.)
Anyway, this should be a really fun party :)
It's getting cold, tomorrow is Disney day at school, I'm reading New Moon obsessively....life is good. :)
Speaking of New Moon....
I have been really like Kristen Stewart lately.
I love her style.
Well, that's all for now, I suppose :)
I will see you again on Saturday with a lovely Halloween party! (Hopefully....as long as inspiration strikes, I'll be fine. Fingers crossed!)
