October is a big party month in our house. Collin and I both have birthday's this month, and it's been tradition for the last decade to have a Halloween bash. With our families so far away it makes me a little sad, but no reason we shouldn't still party!
This is the first year we have had a mantel to decorate, and I'm really liking it. We don't do the scary or super creepy Halloween in our house. My approach is a little more colorful and sugary.
We are very on trend this year with tassel garland. I tried my hand at both tissue paper tassels, and plastic tablecloth tassels. Honestly I found the tissue paper tassels easier, but I love the look of both.
Top Five Reasons October Is My Favorite...
1. My Birthday
2. Collin's Birthday
3. The color orange is celebrated and accepted by all. Orange has been my favorite color for a reaaally long time. Like even before it was cool. Just saying.
4. Eating candy like a pig is socially acceptable.
5. Parties, parties, parties
