Preparing for Halloween – Best of the Weekend

As October is flying by, many of us are preparing for Halloween.  In my neighborhood, we get tons of trick or treaters so we really have to stock up on the candy.  Only, I can’t buy it too far in advance or my family will end up eating it all!

Welcome to this week’s edition of Best of the Weekend link party!  We are so happy you could join us!  As always, we invite you to link up your inspiring posts which may include home decor, DIY, crafts, recipes, tips and more!  Let’s get started…

Before we begin this week’s party, let’s take a look back at the past week…

Every week, we share the most popular post from the previous week’s party on both of our blogs.  In addition, each hostess picks a few favorites to share.  Be sure to check out each of our blogs to see all the features!

Also, remember to stop by our original Best of the Weekend Pinterest Board  and our newest Best of the Weekend Link Party Features where we pin the features each week!   For now, we will continue to pin the features to both of those boards.

Each week, I also share the features on my Instagram stories so be sure to follow along!

We always appreciate when we see people promoting our link party so Pin, Tweet and share away on social media!  Be sure to tag us so we can send you a thank you and give you a shout out at the next link party.
