The recent Halloween party staged by the younger members of the family was a great hit. They enjoyed the party so much a plan of having another one next year was agreed between them before they broke up for the night. The older ones were the ones who prepared all the foods and had set up their scene. The motif for the night was all black or a dash of orange like the pumpkin jack-o-lanterns that abound the lanes leading to their claimed spot.
Lucky for those assigned to set up their tables, for there are already readymade and ready to use black shirred table skirting for sale now and our hostess have plenty in her linen closet ready for the Halloween. Bless the old maiden’s heart; for she is without fail the very best hostess in the family and for all times. She could produce superb and intricate table skirting designs in her younger days from scratch. Wish I have her dexterity, I could have knitted one splendid jacket for an absurd friend.
