Have you seen the stores lately? It’s Halloween. It’s actually here!

Remember that Halloween Party you told everyone you would have at your place? There’s not much time left to get everything together.

You need…
– Food
– Drinks
– Party Supplies
– Music
– Costume (Don’t forget)
– Decorations

With any other kind of holiday party, you can pretty much throw some decorations together just in time and have everything look OK. The thing with Halloween is that the decorations are half the fun!

Now, if you’re looking for some scary nonsense that’s gonna pop out at you, look elsewhere. We don’t like scary around here. What we do like, is spooky, sophisticated, and fun.

That’s where lifestyle and celebrity party planner Michael Russo comes in.
