Are you excited for Halloween? I am! Weather here in Phoenix is absolutely glorious in October (our reward for suffering through the summer), and my girls are the perfect age to really love Halloween.

I needed three different backdrops for the Let the Ghoul Times Roll black light party for Festivities magazine: one for the drinks station, one for the dessert table, and one for the favors table. The fastest and easiest of the three (though they were all pretty darn simple) was the one for the favors table.

This was such a last minute project. It was the morning of the Star Wars party. I'd completed all my planned projects, and had a little time and a lot of sparkling paper scraps. An ideaoccurredto me--and not just any idea, but a super easy, super fast idea for a glittery garland that would compliment my space theme perfectly.

When I started thinking about the cake idsplay for the Star Wars/Space party, I immediately thought of planet cake pops. I typically only like to make cake pops when there's a reason for the thing to be on a stick in the air. Flying snitches? Awesome. Planets orbiting my cake stand? Yes!

Playdough is a hit with all ages. Sure, we might buy it for the kids, but you can't tell me once you have that malleable material in your hands you're not sitting down at the table and squishing it with delight.
You know what makes playdough even better? Glitter.

At any party, I like to give the guests some costume element to help them get in the spirit of the party. Wings, tiaras, and tutus for a fairy party, for example.

I was recently invited to style a birthday scene for pottery barn kids at the Chandler mall. They, like pbk stores all over the country, were having a Star Wars event to help launch their new Star Wars themed products for the holidays. They asked me to design a party setup using some of their products, to help give people inspiration for using objects from around the house in a party plan.
