Good morning loves! Is anyone else as bleary-eyed as me this ridiculously early Monday morning?! Why, oh why, is Halloween on a school/work night?!? I think it should be like Thanksgiving and always fall on the same day of the week….like the last Saturday in October. Someone get on that, okay?
Despite the late bedtime, we had a fabulous night. We had a small party for the kids and their friends, so Mr. Sugarplum pimped out a Pumpkin King to greet them:
The kids were a great audience for all my ‘themey’ food:
My son was so excited about everything he actually helped! The drink labels were his favorite part:
Thanks to Kate for posting those fun drink labels!
Of course I had to throw a craft in too! I love when a party table has different levels of height, so I made a new cake platter and bowl (hence the second part of my post title):
Ikea has those fabulous candleholders for 49 cents…and they make great bases. I simply applied a thin ring of super glue around the edge of the candleholder, then gently placed the bowl or plate (also under $1 at Ikea!) on top. I think I’ll be making more of these for the holidays….especially since they were each under $2! Score!
So how was your night? Are you still sugar-buzzing, or have you crashed and burned like me? Have you already left Halloween in your dust and you’ve moved on to
freaking out about Thanksgiving?
