This past Friday, the 25th of October, my roomie J and I threw a spooktacular party – including a cardboard spider, fondue, 2 birthdays and witches.

A lot and I mean a lot of preparation went into this party! We’ve been planning since August – all the prep was worth it and I think that overwhelmingly our party was a success!
