We’re just days away…

We’re just days away from my absolutely favorite month of the whole year…October! When I lived in the mainland, it was my favorite month because that’s when the leaves started to change, college tailgating was underway (I went to Indiana University and the tailgating was way better than the actual football games!) and you could slip into a brand new pair of jeans and your favorite old sweater and enjoy that cold crisp air! Living in the islands, the jeans, sweaters, tailgating and changing leaves are no longer something I get to enjoy…but October is still my favorite month. The weather does start to change here a little – the days are shorter (it’s completely dark by 6:30pm now) and the evenings are cooler with a soft tradewind. And Halloween…my absolute favorite holiday! I have a new love for Halloween now that I have children…I start to plan their Halloween outfits months in advance (and am having a horrible time deciding on what to put my three year old in – any ideas?) and have been shopping for special items to decorate the house. It’s hard to decorate an island home with “fall” elements, but I do try.

While shopping on Etsy today (where else??), I found these adorable Halloween figures to put around the home:

Wouldn’t the little witch and the little devil make adorable cake toppers for a Halloween cake??? And since Halloween in my faaavorite holiday and weddings are of course another of my great loves, please, please, please email me if you’re interested in a Halloween wedding!!!

And just for those of you that may think I’m off my rocker with a Halloween themed wedding….while looking at this sellers site, I fell in love with this adorable cake topper:

So check out her store, even if little witch brides and devil grooms aren’t your style. =)I just love cake toppers, I think I would need to get married at least 15 times to use all the ones I’ve fallen in love with.

PS In case you’re curious, I do have some submissions for my blog entry contest! I will get those up on the blog by later this week. The entry that receives the most comments will get an Island Bliss tote bag and every entry will get an Island Bliss Wedding pen!

Need some incentive?

As mentioned below, any guests blogger will receive a gift of thanks from me…a box of Caribbean Rum Balls and an Island Bliss Weddings pen… But to make it a little more fun…if we have more than one guests blogger, whichever blogger receives the most comments on their post will also receive an Island BlissContinue Reading

Leaving on a jet plane…

Island Bliss Weddings is “somewhat” on vacation. My family and I are heading to the mainland to enjoy our traditional Lobsterfest with my in-laws. It’s a great day for us, but a bad day for lobsters. I will have email access while I’m away but limited time to respond. For any emergencies, please give usContinue Reading
