We are thrilled that you came by to link up today! Here are a few rules that hosts and co-hosts of the Home Matters Party follow, and we ask that you follow them, as well.

  1. Please link up no more than THREE posts each week–try to make sure that they are new links that you have not shared here previously. (Exception: Holiday/Seasonal specific posts may be shared once per year.)
  1. Please take some time to poke around and visit some of the other links.
  1. Please take some time to check out your hosts and co-hosts on social media.
  1. We appreciate the variety of blogs on the www; however, the Home Matters Party is for links on matters of the HOME. Please link accordingly.
  1. We ask that you do not add other Linky Parties, Blog Hops, or Giveaways–unless you begin the party with a new project, recipe or post.
  1. On the same note, please do not add links of an extremist, political or strong controversial nature. (The hosts and co-hosts read each and every blog post linked and will contact you directly if you have linked something that does not fit into the realm of the party.)

With your help, we can continue to grow the Home Matters Party! Thank you!

Rory has plans to party with friends, so she chose this Brilliantly Bewitched Costume. It is super cute and super comfy. It is made with a soft stretchy material and sheer sleeves. And just look at the beautiful jewel-tone purple sparkling down the front. This costume is fun and flirty with the v-neckline and an asymmetrical jagged-edged hemline. It comes with a matching hat.

Pick a group theme like superheroes, pirates, and food or be creatively unique. Get a costume that fits — sizes from babies to plus sizes. The hardest part about shopping for a costume at Oriental Trading is deciding which one to choose.

Before she heads out to the party, Rory’s taking some little ones around the neighborhood trick-or-treating. Check out this Trick-or-Treat Lantern!

What You Need:

Putting it Together:

  1. Open the Black Metal Lantern.
  2. Turn the Lights On.
  3. Place the battery pack base of the LED String Lights inside the lantern.
  4. Weight it down with Candy Corn.
  5. Replace the Lantern Lid.

Isn’t this lantern adorable? What a great way to light your path while trick-or-treating.
