I have had the incredible fortune to be accepted into the graduate school of my choice... the only drawback of course being that I now have graduate level work.. on top of a job... and a boyfriend... and well, yeah you get the picture.
Anyway, today (whilst in the midst of a paper from anthropological HELL) I finally realized that my favorite holiday season of the year was passing me by!
Clearly something had to be done.
This something was the installation of my halloween circus tent! I've had the tent ready to go up for almost two weeks now -all I needed was the giant ladder and I was good to go!
Firstly, I am really pleased with my color choices. Mixing the patterned paper with the two solids really added visual interest. The overall look is very "Halloween fun" -something I'm really digging this year!
Secondly, this be turned into an AWESOME spider ceiling decoration if it were done in black!
Lastly, the whole project cost about eight dollars and it really makes an impact. Sure, it was on the labor intensive side but I think the time and money were well spent!
I'll post a little bit more about the actual construction of the tent later -I just wanted to let y'all know that I'm still alive and still working on the party!
