My Little Halloween Party

Well it is Halloween and all my children have now gone out with their daddy trick or treating.  I have decided to stay in the warm as feel I have done my duty with filling our house with lots of Halloween props and treats and throwing a mini party for them.

A party that really was only conceived about 24 hours ago with our new stylist Izabel.  Yes lucky mummy has stylists on tap - how cool is that! I also have an office full of props so doubly lucky.

With such a short amount of time and a limited budget I was really excited to see what Izabel could create. By utilising some of our existing stock jars, raiding the supermarkets and contacting the lovely Pop Bakery, Izabel created this cute Halloween sweet table and tea table for my party.

I just had to provide her with a cup of coffee and place some props around the house - lots of Brownie points for me and so nice to plan something for my children when I am working on other peoples parties so much.

Happy Halloween and enjoy the photos. Love Katie x

Halloween Styling

Good afternoon everyone! Yesterday I spent my day decorating this lovely mantle-piece in preparation for Halloween  next week, so I thought I would share it with you all to give you some ideas or inspiration for your own home. 

With a few props, some creepy cloth and a couple of candles it is very simple to create a spooky scene to get you in the mood for this holiday!

Free Fun Halloween Props

We have been having some Halloween fun in the office and thought it would be a great idea to have a special Halloween photo booth.  Our designer Karen has come up with some fun ideas, which you can make at home for your photo session.  I just need to work out how I can load them as high res files for you to use !  Any suggestions ??? Lots of Love Katie x
