I have to admit Halloween isn't my favorite holiday.

I try to convince myself it will be more fun when I have a kid to dress up in some embarassing costume but for now I treat it like most every other day of the year and then buy candy at half price on November 1st. If you feel the same way, maybe we both need to resolve to celebrate with a grown-up black and white party. Here are a few ideas to get started: 

– Send out invitations from Rifle Paper Co.

– Decorate with black glittered pumpkins

– Take a cue from this appetizer menu from Sunset Magazine (a houndstooth tablecloth is a good idea too). 

– Sweeten things up with pumpkin whoopie pies

Have I left you looking at Halloween differently?
