Let's throw an Adult Halloween Party

Are you ready for Halloween? It hands down is my favorite holiday to decorate and celebrate. I have always loved playing different characters and dressing up. Who does not enjoy a good costume party? We throw an annual party and it is such a hit I look forward to it almost as much as I enjoy Halloween itself because it is so much fun! This year like so many before we started planning and figuring out exactly we wanted from glass ware to activities.

"Halloween parties tend to conjure up thoughts of screaming kids, tacky shop bought decorations and sticky food packed full of sugar. Festive Lights have been hard at work creating Halloween party packs to make you rethink those old fashioned notions".

Enjoy Kelleys Island , Ohio

 Traveling the world has been in my blood from a young age. I hear people refer to it as a travel bug you just never out grow or cure. Passing that onto my son has been so much fun because I experience new adventures but also experiences through his eyes. Together we can enjoy just about anything thrown our way on vacation! What if you are traveling to a new place you have never been? How do you find great things to see and do? I hope this is where I can be of assistance! We have compiled some great ways to experience Kelly's Island in Ohio.

Celebrate the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

 As a child I remember reading the Harry Potter series and then went to the theaters to see the films. I grew up with this series and when my five year old (now seven) first showed interest into the magical world of Harry I was ecstatic!  I desperately wanted to help encourage his reading and recreate the moments from the pages of J K. Rowling's books. With the new movie, Fantastic Beast and Where to Find Them, we have been on a hunt for all things Harry Potter! "Luckily,You don’t have to travel all the way to Diagon Alley or push your way through the barrier of Platform 9 3/4 to enter the world of Harry Potter. All you have to do is visit the officially licensed Harry Potter partner store on Zazzle to bring the Boy Who Lived closer to you (Zazzle website)".
 The first wizarding essential owl posted to our castle was this journal pictured above. I wanted something my son could travel with and jot his inner spells! They have so many to choose from if you are a avid fan like us it will be super hard to decide on just one, just in case here is the link to the entire Notebook/journal selection. If you are not a Harry Potter fan, because I know their might be some of you out there..... They do have some great stationary and motivational stationary as well to choose from!
