Halloween wedding ideas

Boo! Ah, I love Halloween.

It's really a great time to become a child all over again even if you are an adult.

How do you go about getting all scary and in the mood for a Halloween filled with boo-like matrimonial tactics?

Let's see some spooky ideas:

1) Wear a monster bride costume

2) Play a DVD of the movie "Corpse Bride" at the wedding shower

3) Have a candy buffet table and go sugar crazy with Halloween candy from See's candies. I love these Marshmallow Jack O'Lanterns - yummy!

Yes, it does seem a bit juvenile, but heck, if you were a bride planning a Halloween wedding, you'd definitely be offbeat anyways.

Trick or Treat!

Purse Party Ideas for a Bridal Shower

A bridal shower party with a fashion theme can be a fun-filled event teeming with great ideas. To begin the planning, it's a good idea to think about the style of the party whether it will be a modern or vintage-inspired one. I personally love anything vintage because it is so romantic, but you can also spice it up with cool details and bold colors. Check out your craft stores for ribbons, beads, and other fun embellishments to jazz up the decor. You can also be inspired by your favorite handbag designer or purse style to plan the decorations of the party. Here are some party ideas that you can start with:

For invitations:
Madison Park Purse Invitation - cute motif on the header

For the cake:
A French-inspired purse cake - oh, wow!

For the party supplies:
Cute pink stripe plates - pretty, pretty, ...

For the goodies:
Purse shaped cookies - yum!

For the guests:
Give'em some pretty purse favor bags
