Link Love: Spooktacular Edition

I don't know about you but Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday.  Its funny how much I love it given how much I dislike all things scary, spooky, startling and dark.  What I do love about Halloween is the option to dress up like someone or something else for one day. Oh, and the candy, I really like the candy.

In honor of my favorite holiday and my husband's 30th birthday, we are throwing a Birthoween party on Saturday night.  Since he, I and MTV turned thirty this year we decided to theme our party around all things MTV.  All costumes, food, music and drinks are to be inspired by MTV.  We've got our food, drinks and costumes planned already. We can't wait to see what everyone else comes up with!

If you are looking for last minute holiday inspiration yourself, here are a few great links from around the web!

These inexpensive, yet beautiful DIY webs beat that tired, old bag of cottony cobwebs.

Fashion Pumpkins, the Missoni and Balmain are my favorite!

Spooky salt and pepper shakers (that can be reused for a Flintstones themed BBQ.)

Cute drink labels for a kids-only or adults-only party!

Dress up as the Hamburgler and other costume ideas from your own closet.

How beautiful is this wall of bats?

So do you love or hate Halloween?  Are you celebrating early with weekend tricking or treating?  Whatever you get into, have a spooktacular weekend!

Okay I've never been the hugest fan of Halloween, but suddenly I am majorly in love with the phrase "spooktacular." I blame you for that one, Cara. Happy Birthday to your husband!!
