Vampire Halloween Party

Every year we have a Halloween bash.  It's our excuse to act like kids and dress up in costumes and have fun!  I love it!  And my kids love it, too.

This year we all went as vampires (I don't have a good picture of us, sorry).  So I figured we might as well stick with the theme and do a vampire themed party.
So here's some shots of the dessert table and decor.

It started off with the invitation I designed.  For custom printables and invitations visit my etsy shop.


I stuck with the traditional black, white and hints of red (like every vampire party, am I right.).


We had some of our favorite goodies for everyone.  Including chocolate covered rice krispy treats.



Cream cheese parfaits.  My fave.




The cake was a red velvet with vanilla buttercream.  So good!


My husbands favorite.  Black liquorice.


Yogurt covered pretzels.


Another favorite of mine.  Caramel apples.  


Gummy candy.  Because the kids had to have it!


Some fang sugar cookies and white chocolate cupcakes with raspberry buttercream.



'Bloody' popcorn.  Which was simply buttered popcorn with red dyed butter.  


I made a little drink area as well.  As you can see the drinks aren't set up yet.
But we had a cranberry punch and some adult beverages, like 'Bloody Mary' cocktails, as well.





For all the vampires, we had 'blood bags' to enjoy.  These were filled with a liquid syrup candy.  It was basically for show.


I used a chalkboard sticker sheet and my tag paper punch to create these drink jars with 'tombstones'.




Everyone had a blast!

Keona's Pet Boutique Party

My daughter celebrated her birthday last weekend.  Since she's crazy about pets and always wanting her own 'pet shop.  We made her dream come true with a 'pet boutique' just for her.


We started out with the guests searching where their puppies put their 'bones'.  I sewed these felt bones as a 'toy' for their new adopted stuffed pups.


They then received their puppy and an adoption certificate.


The guests were then able to create their own pet collars for their animals.  We used ribbons, stick on gems, and a bell and card stock name tag.



As for the dessert table, I created a canopy for the 'store front'.


We served vanilla cupcakes instead of a cake (as per the birthday girls request). 

And sugar cookies shaped like different pets.



Pet food in jars; which were gumdrops, bubblegum and bonbons.


Her pet boutique also had pet leashes (candy necklaces).



And bird seed (sesame snap treats).


And even bunny food.


Since the birthday girl loves cotton candy, we had purple cotton candy for 'bunny tails'.


We served candy fish in small aquariums with the punch.


And had some gummy mice in their shelters, too.




The guests got to guess the amount of puppy treats in the jar.


And they carried their pups home in custom carriers.





The birthday girl had a fantastic time on her special day.
