Inspiration Friday- Halloween Entertaining

I want to have a Halloween party very badly, but there just isn't time or budget for it this year. We have so much going on this month so I am gathering and saving up all of my ideas and next year I am hosting a Pumpkin Party. And you are all invited. Enjoy some of what's inspiring me while I get busy cleaning up this house for my company that's coming tomorrow. Have a great autumn weekend!






























All pictures from www.countryliving.com except the last one which is from www.bhg.com.

  11. I'd hoped to start an annual tradition of a Pumpkin Party/Bonfire this fall, as well, because we just moved to a new house. But it's not going to happen here either. *Because* we just moved. Way too much going on.

    These pictures are all so inspiring. I'm missing out in not being able to decorate for fall. But I'm enjoying all of the inspiration on your blog.

  12. Beautiful photos...the perfect low-cal Halloween (eye) candy! I love all the pumpkins and that table setting is lovely. We are actually attending a costume party tonight...which means all the fun without the hassle of hosting! :-)

  28. I want to hold a pumpkin party too! I think it was last year's Country Living October issue where they hosted a jack-o-lantern carving party. Doesn't that sound fun?
    God bless.

  31. I've enjoyed viewing your blog for a while. Just had to speak up and let you know how much I love the inspiration photos.

    I have time yet to do a Fall themed party...maybe early November. I'll be stealing ideas from these photos. Thanks!

  32. Hi Jen! Thank you for visiting my blog today and leaving a sweet comment. Glad that you like the song..it is one of my favorites, too.

    My favorite thing here are the jars in the bottle holder with the candy corn under the candles. So cute...now if I would just leave the candy corn alone, I may just do this.

    Take care!
