As Rachel and I were hiking up a mountain a few months ago, we came up with the idea of having a Halloween party in the mountains with our friends. October is such a beautiful month to be in the mountains and I was so excited to take photos of the fall scenery. I was also looking forward to seeing everyone after being away in Washington D.C. for so long.
We packed up the car around one and headed up so we could decorate before everyone got there.It was supposed to be a two-hour drive, but it turned into a three and a half hour drive because we got distracted and stopped about five times for “decorating purposes.”The house took our breath away. It was so quiet and peaceful, but we were about to change that for the weekend.
This called for a toast!
We had two sets of corn hole out and other games planned.
After decorating and putting away all the groceries, we finished our bottle of champagne and waiting for our friends to arrive.
This place had fishing, canoeing, paddle boats, hiking, and a swimming dock.
I am not a streamer expert, so this was stressful. I dropped the streamers off the top of the deck a couple of times and it was a pain pulling them all the way back up. It was a long way down…but I think they turned out pretty well.
We grilled hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, baked french fries, and had other finger foods out. No one was going home hungry.
It had carrots, hummus, spring mix blend, crackers, tomato, avocado, pepper jack cheese, and balsamic.
