You're invited

Join us this year for our first carnival in the haunted woods. We love carnivals and Halloween is the perfect time to go traipsing into the forest to hold an autumn blog party. Candy floss and ferris wheels go perfectly well with witches and jack-o-lanterns in our book. We couldn't resist adding a little bit of dark mystery to the traditional candy colored carnival world. So join us if you dare. A silver ticket is all we require. We would be delighted to have you and we promise you an enchantingly wicked good time.

Please read the page on HOW TO PARTICIPATE. We know many of you are pros at doing these blog parties and for some this might be your first one. We added a fun little twist this time so please make sure to go over the  party rules. If you decide to participate leave a comment on this post with your BLOG NAME and BLOG ADDRESS. You will be added to the participant list on the sidebar.

Fall is always a busy time in blogland and there are many amazing parties to attend. Halloween seems to be a favorite for lots of us so we hope you will join the fun and help us kick off our favorite month. It always goes by much too fast!

If you have any questions feel free to email. If you have suggestions we would love to hear them too. Check back here for updates over the following weeks. You can also follow this blog to make it easier.

Visit our blogs  Frosted Petunias and Incipient Wings for more party related posts and ideas. Have a fabulous summer and we'll see you soon at Le Mysterieux Carnival. Au revoir.

Susan said...

Please sign me up, I've been waiting to see something about "Practical magic", are you going to do one for that this year?

This is going to be cool, and will take some thought.

just a suggestion for your rules...you might want to ask people to turn off word verification just for the hop, to make it more visitor friendly.

Thanks, Susan
