Halloween Blog Party

3 09 2008

Do you love Halloween? It’s only September, but it’s never too early to think scary thoughts!

I’m excited to announce I’m hosting a Halloween Blog Party!

October 19 – October 31, 2008

I go all out for Halloween! I couldn’t wait to show you some of my decorations and ideas. Then I thought… why don’t I host a blog party and see all of your ideas too! Starting October 19th, for 13 spooky days, I’ll feature blogs and anyone with photos who want to join the party and show off their Halloween spirit! Then on October 31st, I’ll give away prizes!!! It’s not a party without prizes right? You have plenty of time to think of something original or find old photos from Halloween past. I hope to see lots of spooktacular ideas!

Contest Categories

  • Best Original Costume FYI: I’m a sucker for family themes and funny pet costumes!
  • Creepiest Yard Decor Does not have to be yours, take a photo of your neighbor’s yard if it’s good!
  • Most Creative Party Idea This includes recipes, decor, games and crafts.
  • Most BOOtiful Halloween Design This includes party invitations, cards and scrapbook pages.
  • Most Bewitching Halloween Photo As long as it’s Halloween themed… anything goes!

Contest Rules: All entries must be something you produced, not a photo from a magazine or book. Family friendly entries only.

**Check back next week to see the prizes you could win! If you have a fun product you would like to donate, please contact me.

What a great idea to have a Halloween Blog Party! Sounds like fun! None of my Halloween decorations are very creative, but maybe I’ll come up with something new this year. If I do, I’ll link up! -Julia 🙂

P.S. Your button is SO cute!

Oh Amy…I am the most uncreative party person in the entire world! Maybe I’ll be able to do a card or scrapbook page. I’ll start trying to think of an idea but this is pretty scary! 🙂

Yeah! I’ve got a few partiers lined up. You don’t have to be the most creative person to join in on the fun. Everyone has some funny Halloween costume pictures right? I’ve got a great one from year’s past that I can’t wait to show you all. Typical Amy silliness.

I saw some fun ideas in my Family Fun magazine. The kids have their costumes, but I have to come up with something cute this year to try and “match” the kids……
