It’s a Halloween Party!

Join the fun. Feast on apples and walnuts.

Oh wait, just when you thought it was safe, a trick has been planted. Spiders! Rush to the bathroom and remove the little critters, then come on back for cupcakes and green apple cider, no spiders this time.

I’m dressed like an elf, not just any elf. The costume is inspired by my high fantasy. Since there isn’t a picture, I’ll do my best to describe it to you. Chiffon type material only made by elfin care. Gathered in a Grecian style over the bodice and crisscrossed with ribbon. It flows floor length but won’t hinder your steps. When I dance the material twirls out. No wings for elves, just pleasure. The colors are available in a rainbow of choices, I am wearing purple.

Here are the other party goers. Leave a comment about their costume, their trick or their treat. Or all three. Remember, the party fun is by following and becoming their friend.

Have fun.

Did you like my treat, my trick or my costume?


Simon Kewin said...

Wow, impressive costume! You really put some effort into that.

My party posting is here. Treats on offer!

N. R. Williams said...

Thank you Simon. I'll visit your blog.

Golden Eagle said...

I love the sound of your costume! Elves are amazing. :)

My post is up!

Joanne said...

Ooh, fun! I'll definitely take one of those chocolate pumpkin cupcakes, perfect with my morning java ... Enjoy!

Your costume sounds creative. We're going bowling on Halloween. The only thing different on me will be those smelly bowling shoes. That's the trick. I really need to get a pair of my own. That would be a real treat.

Love the costume. I'm having a spot of bother with my makeup at the moment.

Carolyn V. said...

Ohhh, Love it! I wanted to join the fun, but I have a deadline today. =( Have a great time at all the parties. =) p.s. love the elf costume!

Patti Struble said...

Hey Nancy,

The post is up. The costume is secured. I talked hubby into preparing the treat. And, the trick is more an act of God, so we'll see how it goes. Happy party to all & to all a Fright Night.

N. R. Williams said...

Thanks Golden, I'll head on over.

Cupcakes and Java, sounds great Joanne.

Bowling and Halloween, do you need to do any witchcraft to make the ball strike Stephen?

Make up is always a problem for me KK.

Good luck on your deadline Caroyln.

I'll take a peak Patti.

And to all, make sure you head over to all the other party goers and take a look at their post too.

Ooh! How did I miss this fab party?! I must say your costume is quite wonderful! Glamourous Elf? ;) Have a lovely scary weekend then!

N. R. Williams said...

Thank you Talei. You can still visit all the other participants and I hope you enjoy their post as well.

Francine Howarth said...


Wow! Great party. I'm dead jealous of your costume, and shall snack on apples, thanks. After all, it is the fruit of temptation. ;)

I'm more a traditional Halloween girl, all black and bats and ghouls, andthe occasional delectable hunk! :o


N. R. Williams said...

Thank you Francine. Watch out for the spiders.

Southpaw said...

I'm sorry I won't be able to post today since I'm having may own little soiree. So, I post a mini post here. Okay? If I had my druthers, I’d dress up as a centaur. When I was a teenager I planned it out the whole costume, even how to construct it. The hind legs whole be on wheels so they could follow me around.

N. R. Williams said...

That is really cool Holly.

Marian Allen said...

I'm wearing brown pants, a turtleneck with a pattern of autumn leaves and, around my neck, a bundle of twigs tied together with strips of flannel. What am I?

My trick is, inside the bundle of sticks are cello-wrapped caramels.

My treat is this short-short story.

Love the elf costume, Nancy! Thanks for the party!

Marian Allen

N. R. Williams said...

Hi Marian, thanks for stopping by. I'm going to guess a wood nymph. I like your trick and treat as well.

Jules said...

I love elves and anything that comes in rainbow colors I like. This is going to be fun to read. :D

My post is going up at 6:30 pm and I must apologize. I had to get something off my chest this morning and while posting it I copied the wrong name in for the party. I went back and corrected it. Again, my mistake, sorry.

N. R. Williams said...

I'm glad you like elves Jules. No problem, I'm sure it will work out. I'll check out both post.

Summer Ross said...

LOL, this was great! I didn't participate, but I'm having loads of fun reading everyones stuff!

N. R. Williams said...

Thank you Summer, I am going to do this every year so maybe next year you can join the fun.

Erin Kane Spock said...

My blog is updated. Sorry about the delay and thanks for the reminder! I plan to spend my morning perusing your other entries.

N. R. Williams said...

Thanks for letting me know Erin.

Lynda R Young as Elle Cardy said...

I lOVE your costume And your treat :)

I've not been well lately so I totally forgot the party and I'm totally unorganised. I'll make sure I visit everyone though.

I'll be giving out chocolate cupcakes and I'll be going as a hobbit with a mithril vest (because I'm short) lol. :)

N. R. Williams said...

I love Hobbits Lynda. And I like cupcakes too. So sorry you've been sick.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Great costume, Nancy! And I'm sorry I dropped the ball on the party day. For some reason I had it in my head for Saturday (maybe because I'm *going* to a Halloween party today!)

I'll check out all your party-goers. And, if I HAD been wearing a costume yesterday, I'd have been a witch. :)

Jeff Beesler said...

Wow, if you hadn't nudged me with a gentle, but firm, reminder, I might've missed the party altogether. I knew you were hosting a blogfest party. I just didn't realize it was this weekend.

My costume choice really ought to be the zombie one from what I posted back on my blog on Friday.

Thanks again for the reminder!

N. R. Williams said...

I'm glad you liked my costume Elizabeth. I am noting everyone's comment and next year I will be much more specific about the days.

I like your costume Jeffrey. A zombie to add to a mixture of so many other great costumes.

Thank you both and everyone else above for leaving a comment.

Marian Allen said...

Nancy, wood elf is not correct. I've decided to make a contest of it. Correct guess wins your choice of Team Micah or Team Coalition button.

Marian Allen

N. R. Williams said...

Oh...wood elf is the same as wood nymph...than I will head over for the contest. Sounds like fun.
