A little about my home and party prep

Fall is BIG TIME in my house.

BIG TIME.

I love the changing leaves, the cooler weather and the holiday parties.

😀 I do love a good party!! 😀

We’re having a Halloween Party on Saturday. Which means this week I’m cleaning and doing party prep.

I don’t like to stress about the party cleaning or prep, so I spread it out over a week. Otherwise, my eye twitches and I get super grumpy. Trust me when I say no one wants that!

I’m working down my check list….

I list the rooms that need attention in a list, an old school hand written list. Why a old school note? So I get the satisfaction of marking the completed items off the list. 😀

I make a similar list of food items I want to make for the party. I check my pantry and stock pile, then I make a shopping list based on the items I need to buy. Making my list early gives me time to pick up the items I need, even if the first store I check does not have what I want.

This week I’ll be posting recipes that are party related.

I’m almost done decorating the dining room, I still need to get spider webs up.

The buffet.

Tomorrow I’m going to re-post my jalapeno cheese squares recipe. It’s seriously that good.
