Something Wicked This Way Comes...

It's no secret that I love Halloween. If you've been coming around these parts for any length of time you already know that. For almost a decade now we have been throwing parties to celebrate the creepiest day of the year. For a long time we hosted a full blown costume party but more recently we've begun to make it a more intimate dinner gathering. That doesn't keep me from pulling out the stops and setting a memorable table that will enchant the kiddies and delight the adults. 
The new Oh Joy! line at Target inspired me with the black, gold and cream party fans. Perfect for over the table. An antique chamber pot doubles as a cauldron ~ imagine dry ice oozing from the gaps in the lid. I placed a beautiful vintage owl wall hanging at the drink station because it's a showstopper!  We'll fill small bottles with some delicious "potion" and let the kids use these fun chalkboard labels to write their names or a cryptic message . Adult beverages will of course occupy these vintage black tumblers while the food is served on matching black vintage plates. 
My guess is that it will be completely Spooktacular!
Pun definitely intended. ;)
