The Saturday before Sandy, my roommate and I threw a Halloween-themed housewarming party at our new apartment. Everyone came dressed up in their best costumes and helped us christen our new place. One of the things I wanted most for our new apartment was to have the space to have friends over and I was thrilled to be able to entertain our friends last weekend. I turned to Pinterest for food and decor ideas and spent the whole day leading up to the party baking lots of tasty treats for our guests. I think I can say that our party was a success and I’m looking forward to the next bash we decide to throw!

Tell me: What did you do for Halloween this year?

  • Hope Shores

    Everything looks so cute, Nnenna! Wish we could have made it. :(

    • Nnenna

      Thank you Hope! No worries, there will be future parties! :)

  • Kimberlee VDW

    Aw you look so cute! What a fun housewarming party. I didn’t dress up this year because Sandy kinda threw everything off :/

    • Nnenna

      Thanks Kim! Yeah, I think Sandy definitely messed up everyone’s Halloween’s plans. I’m glad we did this the weekend before though, because we put a lot of time/effort into it!

  • Alex Elizabeth

    Pumpkin shots! That was so cute and clever. I’m so bad with little details like that.

    That was the only candy corn I had this season! Next year I’m totally buying bags just for myself.

    • Nnenna

      I bought 4 bags of candy corn total this season and ate 3 pretty much by myself… #candycornaddiction

  • heather

    O you are so adorable!!! Love all the costumes. I didn’t do anything for Halloween this year besides bake pumpkin cookies and carve a pumpkin. I don’t know what it was, wasn’t feeling it this year. But now seeing your pictures makes me wish I had a Halloween party lol

    • Nnenna

      Aww, thank you Heather! Yumm, pumpkin cookies sound delicious and I wish I had carved a pumpkin this year! That and apple picking (two things I didn’t get to on my fall list!).

  • christine

    I love a great Halloween shindig! Did I see jello shots?! Holla!
    We went to a Halloween party the Saturday after Halloween..which was great because we bought our costumes 1/2 price YAY! (would have rather made my costume but we were oops invited LOL)

    • Nnenna

      Haha, yes you did! And that’s awesome that you got your costumes 1/2 off! What did you go as?

  • Emily Spada

    One of these years I’ll do something fun for Halloween. I didn’t do anything… :(

    • Nnenna

      I don’t always go all out like this for Halloween, but since it was the first party I’ve thrown since I moved here more than a year ago, I had to! :)

  • Lyddiegal

    looks like a fun party! glad you had it before sandy struck!

    • Nnenna

      Thanks Lydia, me too! I would have been pretty sad if all my hours of party planning had gone to waste!
