As I mentioned is previous posts before, I am a HUGE fan of Halloween.  Even as a type one diabetic there are many other aspects I love about the Holiday even though I can’t enjoy any of the candy.  Every year I always love to throw a Halloween get-together.  I love big dress up parties but I am more of a small intimate get-together with junk food, booze and fun.  This year I also used Halloween as a chance for my family and friends to see my new apartment.  My apartment is on the first floor so I kept the slider door open and utilized the back yard as a place to play corn hole and more seating (and also to keep the large cooler full of beer).  It was an open house, very causal and a ton of fun to see everyone I love.

PARTY DETAILS

For decorating, because I am a single girl living alone, budget was a key factor.  All my decorations came from something I already had and also shopping in my Grandparents basement.  All the old vintage candles and plates came from my “Gaga” and she was appalled that I didn’t dust off the dust.  I think it really gave that old, spooky vintage look I was trying to achieve.  I really wanted the table to look like a witch set up shop in my living room – I think I may have gone a little over board in that there wasn’t even that much room for food. (whoops)

FOOD AND DRINKS

I like to cook and bake but I certainly do not have time to do so being a full time workin’ gal.  HUGE shout out to my mom and my grandma for helping provide some of the food.  I did however make a few treats and drinks and of course used Pinterest to find all the recipes:

Stay Fancy!
