Lilly's Halloween Party

Last night Lilly celebrated Halloween with all of her friends at her costume party.  It was such a good time and we had a great turn out - um 25 kids in our house.  So it was a little crazy but well worth it to see all the kids get together in their costumes.  Here's some of the pictures I snapped beforehand.  I really had no time- parties always sneak up on me and I run like crazy right before they start.  Thank God for Josh and my in laws, Bruce and Marian, for helping!!

Kid's Food Table

{Do you spy the Pretty Smitten party package I wrote about here?}



 Exterior Set-Up

{More mice and bats!}


Craft Station (Lilly's g-ma manned this & helped the kids paint trick or treat bags)


{Lilly must be thinking really hard about getting her paint on}

We made a huge pot of chili for the adults and basically let the kids do their thing to the tune of Monster Mash and other festive songs.  Tonight Lilly will be wearing her Pebbles costume again for trick or treating. So fun!  I think all I will want to do tomorrow is sleep. 

Hope you all have a wonderful halloween.

PS, my amazingly talented friend Calder Clark is sharing a Halloween themed wedding she designed and executed last year (it was just featured in the LA Times yesterday) on her blog today.  SO cute, go see!!
