Banner Party!

Good Monday morning!  I somehow think the term "Good Monday morning" is definitely as oxymoron.  What's good about Monday! 

Last weekend was my craft groups banner making party at my house and I had a ball!  It was so much fun to see what everyone made.  As always we had tons of delicious food for snacking on and I decorated a little for Halloween since we were making Fall/Halloween banners.
 
Here are some of my friends diligently working on the cut outs.
This lady decide to just make one large rosette with a scarecrow.  I love her tassel at the bottom.
This friend made this banner for her newly engaged son's home! 
This is my sister!  I love her banner with cats and owls and spooky things.

D decided to make hers vertical with an Autumn theme

J used a preprinted banner like the one I made and added her own touches.

Yours Truly went with rosettes and a Peanuts theme.
 
Did you spot my prized tree in the background?  That tacky, gaudy, wonderful electric blue tree?
Oh yeah!  With a few Halloween decorations on it.  I don't think I am going to keep it up until Halloween, 3 months is too long for a tree in the kitchen!
These are a few decorations I made for the tree.

I love this green witch

Hope you're not afraid of spiders!
I also made all the participants ribbon corsages in a Halloween/Fall theme and of course forgot to take a photo of them before I gave them out!  But on all the photos everyone is wearing them!
So here we are, such a refined group of ladies.
Or not!
 
I also made a couple of other Halloween decorations on Sunday.
Inspired by my friends large rosette, I made a Halloween one.  This is so much cuter in person, I stink at taking photos.
I am still deciding if I like the "Eeeeek" or not.  It's not glued on yet.
Isn't this the sweetest little witch spoolie?  I love making spoolies!
 
Did you have a fun weekend?  I sure hope so!
 
Blessings
 
Linda

I love your wonderfully tacky blue tree and it's perfect for your Halloween decorations. What a fun day with friends. Crafting and food! Who could ask for more? I wish I lived closer. I would have loved to have joined the party!
