S’More Halloween Fun!

S'More Halloween Fun - 2
Halloween is a big holiday celebration for my family. Each year, since my oldest daughter was barely a year old, we have hosted a family-friendly Boo Bash. But, increasingly, the challenge has been selecting a date that doesn’t conflict with school functions, sporting activities and community events – not to mention other Halloween parties. Last year, I solved this problem by choosing the Saturday after Halloween, which was also a long weekend for school-aged children. To have fun with the post-Halloween date, the theme was “S’more Halloween Fun” and included spooky campfire stories, chili dinner and of course, s’mores. The result was tremendous fun!

Ready to host a post-Halloween Boo Bash? Read S’More Halloween Fun for all the fun invitation, decorations, food and drinks and entertainment ideas!  To see more inspiring photos, check out this gallery.

Hosting a Party at Home! 

inhouse entertainmentThere are hundreds of venues in Northern Virginia for hosting parties and celebrations. Would you like to know which one ranks the best? Your home! Why? It’s a warm, inviting space and tastefully decorated, too – after all, it’s yours!

Before you object to hosting a party at home, citing too much effort, limited space – or even fear – let’s explore the advantages: no rental fees, minimal decorations, ample setup time and, again, it’s a really comfortable place. Isn’t it ironic that many people search high and low for alternate venues that feel “just like home”?

My article In-home Entertainment shares five simple strategies (plus a few extra helpful tips) for entertaining in your home with confidence and ease.  Now, there’s no excuse for not hosting a party at home!
