T-minus 6 days...?

Getting down to the wire - ack! The big Halloween party day is this coming Saturday!

  • Most flagstone walls are up (foyer is all that's left to tape up)
  • All spooky portraits are hung
  • Wall sconces rearranged and replaced w/ black candles
  • Spell books set up on the piano
  • Tomato and pepper plants have been ripped out to make room for gravestones - they were done producing anyway
  • Graveyard fencing is installed

  • Patio has been cleaned up (lots of foam scraps!) and rearranged for the party
  • Entryway facade has been anchored to the stucco walls around the sliding door
  • Entryway facade has been accent painted (thanks Melanie!)
