Chloe and Gracie are such little ladies in their pretty collars, but I would need some advice as to how to keep my hound of the baskervilles from ripping off her costume! I’ll be exploring your halloween posts for more inspiration. Linda

    Planning for Halloween is one of my favorite things and something I spend many months in doing. For the last 5 years I’ve hosted a Halloween Tea at a local tea house. My friend and are decorate the outside of the tea house in our theme. This year the theme is “Oz Meets Steampunk” which gives my guests many directions to choose for their costumes. Over the years I have pulled many ideas from your blog. You are so very creative. Thank you for being an inspiration and sharing.

  25. Diedre Coleman
    September 13, 2013 at 8:20 am

    Yes, throw me into the cauldron, as I love Halloween and to eat, drink and be scary. The “Tricks and Treats” book looks delightfully fun. Have to say, I adore your inspirational ideas, especially when it comes to boating.

  26. September 13, 2013 at 8:25 am

    Yes I do follow you on Pinterest and just repinned the tootsie roll poinsettia onto my Yum board. Chocolate, fairies AND Spode Christmas Rose all in one place–I love it. Linda

Fall is coming (yay!), and I am ready to eat, drink, and be scary, although I pretty much have the scary part down pat. Great post, particularly the darling photos of your precious pups. The one licking her lips is particularly good.

    I’d love to Eat, Drink & Be Scary! I love all your Halloween ideas and just used some for a Halloween birthday party yesterday for my niece who is turning 13- I know it is early but her birthday is 9/29 and it was either now or mid October and I didn’t want to risk her social schedule filling up by then. I also follow you by e-mail and on Facebook.

    I repined on pinterest but am not sure if I was to comment there or here, so I’m doing both.

    I love Chloe and Gracie all decked out!! I get such a kick out of the way they pose for pictures. I’d love to Eat, Drink & Be Scary! Just pinned a few more of your pics – not hard to do – and started following your board. You are always such a huge source of inspiration!!

    I love your photos and all the fun food. I’m hosting a tea for my Junior League group and I was thinking last night that a Halloween theme would be fun. You’ve given me some great ideas! Please throw my name into the bubbling caldron so that I can Eat, Drink and be Scary, too :)

    I would love to Eat, Drink, and be Merry–I mean scary! It’s just all so much fun. You are the absolute greatest tablescape artist of all time! We too have a house on the river for weekends. There is just something about water that soothes the soul. When we hit the gravel road leading down to the house it is as if ever strain in my body is released! Even the dogs get excited! Lisa
