It has felt like winter was never going to end. I mean the days are ending early. The cold. The bitter wind. And the snow. Where are the 70 degree days? The flip flops? And going out without a jacket?
Well good news, this weekend we spring forward! The days will be longer. And the weather warmer. So that mean’s it is obviously time to start planning our annual Halloween Party. I mean obviously.
I recently found this amazing event planner book at my favorite craft store and it has everything I need to plan our epic Halloween party.
I know…it’s too early right? WRONG! I don’t want to have to tell you again. It is never too early to plan. I have so many things to do to get ready and start up our annual Fright Fest. Pick a theme. There has to be a theme. This year Masquerade. Time for a little fun.
I first like to look through the previous years goodies to see what was popular and see if I want to bring them back. Then it’s time to plan the cupcake flavor for the jar. I have to do a flavor that is both fall themed and tasty. This year we may have to do churro. That seems to be a favorite.
Costumes are the last thing I focus on. It’s all about the food. Without great food it would truly be a frightening event.
To do list:
- pick a theme
- pick a date
- plan the menus
- make Facebook event invite
- plan paper invites
- mail paper invites (these I try to send out by the middle of August or early September)
- plan goody bags
- make schedule for party planning day
Why am I sitting here writing? I have a million things to do. Enjoy your spring. It’s time to get ready for Halloween.
