October

It's almost October and here at Great Pumpkin Day we will focus on one thing and one thing only and that's BOO BASH 3....

BOO BASH 3 Invitations are printed and ready for delivery even though most everyone knows the date...THIS year it's on Halloween...something my college daughter hates because she has other parties to attend...but I assured her...it's only that way ONCE every seven years...so the next time it rolls around she won't even care...LOL She may come early in the evening and then head back to college later...you know those parties don't even start till ten!!!

Next is the BIGGEST job...sorting and setting aside the party decor....I have tons of Halloween....some is already out but some items are for Boo Bash only so I want to get those gathered and ready.

Then we have menu plans to finalize and a yard to prepare and a house to clean.....luckily I have 31 days to do it!!!

BOO BASH THREE

October of 2009 will be our third annual BOO BASH....I can hardly believe it. How fast time flies. It just seems like yesterday when Cathy of Haunted Hamlet....inspired me to throw that Halloween Party I had been thinking about hosting for quite some time...AND now this Fall will be round three....both years the weather has been cold but not unbearable....so this year I'll hope for the same. We will be hosting it on Halloween this year, which will work for some people but not others....but such is the problems of parties...and last year everyone wondered why we had it the weekend before since Halloween was on a Friday....so I thought okay...this year we WILL have it on Halloween!!

I hope to be a TAD bit better prepared than I was last year...so some Fall yard work and planning will help.....so....here at Great Pumpkin Day...I will be posting frequently to keep myself on task...but FIRST...a theme...The first year it was just a Boo Bash....not a specific theme....last year I tried for a Witch's Kitchen look...and this year....hmmmmmm....this still needs some thought.
