It's a Halloween party...



Hello! Thanks so much for coming to visit. I am having a party here today as part of Vanessa's Fanciful Twist Halloween Bash!
I am thrilled to have my party at my favorite local haunt, a nursery called Nature's Harvest in Wayzata, Minnesota.

So come on in!!

Can I give you a hand?
The table is set with some devilish delights.
Be sure and say hello to an old friend of mine.
Grab a mug to fill with hot cider and have a seat, there's lots of entertainment and conversation. The dancing black cats are quite the show!

Such a grand party table....and we're just getting started!
Be sure and have your fortune read before you go.
Thanks so much for visiting.
Be sure and stop back here starting tomorrow, I will be posting the 13 Days of Halloween. Each days post will include inspiration and festivities leading up to All Hallow's Eve. Look forward to seeing you back soon!

Oh what a dashing skeleton donning the door! I'll definitely be back for the 13 days of Halloween. How fun. Fabulous photos!

Be sure to swing by my place for I have some brain tonic and three witches brew for you! Vincent Price is waiting patiently for you to arrive to begin his story. I do hope to see you soon!

I've also given you a plug, several times. If I have the link wrong or if you wish for it to read differently let me know.

Happy early Halloween.

Hello Kari,

I'm still visiting halloweenparties... I started at my own blog pinkepinke at the P and so went down the list. Now i'm heading up the list starting at my blog again and there are still loooots to visit.

As I visited the sweet and sinister blog this evening, I thought I first take a look at your blog also... So, I'm here now and probably I have to catch up already a few days from the 13 days before halloween... A lot to read again, so I'm off again to read and see some more !

greetings from Belgium
Inge
