Jumping in to say Happy Halloween! I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween - and for those who are having parties tonight - good luck! I know it's always exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time when you're hosting a party.  In fact, I'm hosting a 60's themed party Saturday night which I'm a little nervous about because I feel a bit behind. But I'm hoping it all comes together. Fingers crossed!

And don't you love these BOO glasses?! Download the template from Leo Le Pirate here. I printed the template onto orange cardstock and drew in the polka dots.

Happy Halloween!

Florida photographer Robin Reiss not only was in control of the camera, but she was also the one behind the magic of this Halloween party! As a thank you to many of her clients, she invited them to an afternoon of Halloween treats and fun. There was cupcake decorating, lollipop spider craft, games and a fire pit for roasting hot dogs and s'mores. But, what I love best of all is the photo booth and the smiles on everyone's faces–young and old! What fun! Are any of you hosting a Halloween party?!

Canada's Emma Marie Photography did such a great job in capturing little Elliot's sweet encounter with her birthday cake. The photos unveil the event like a story. You can totally sense Elliot's excitement! Elliot's mommy made the cake and sign, and her backyard provided the setting. Enjoy the photos and be inspired for your own memorable smash cake session!

We are one week away from Halloween! Eek! I am so excited to share this delightfully wicked Halloween party that is perfect for the little ones as well as we big ones. The ladies of Michigan's Inner Circle Photography designed this amazing party with items they had at home, along with items they purchased at Michaels. I am in love with the purple table covering and don't you love the green balloons bubbling in the cauldron?? What an awesome idea! The girls look like they had so much fun participating in the games and activities. Big thanks to Inner Circle Photography for sharing their spooktacular soiree!

If you live in the Nashville area you might be familiar with the Thistle Stop Cafe. Part of Thistle Farms, the cafe staff is comprised of remarkable women who carry inspirational stories of survival from prostitution, addiction and sex trafficking. The Thistle Stop Cafe holds its own story of power and hope, and is a great example of how–when a community unites–it can make a positive social change. More than 100 volunteers supplied the walls, deck, furnishings and cabinetry. Their large collection of tea cups were gathered from around the world and each came with its own story. Their cafe is also used as a space for special occasions. This particular high tea party was given to showcase their special space. If you are in the area, please stop in to enjoy a cup of tea, in honor of justice and new beginnings. Thank you to Nashville photographers, The Collection, for sharing these photos and the significance of The Thistle Cafe. (Please find a list of additional participating event vendors down below.)
