So, Saturday night was the big event. The spooky Halloween party. We tried to make the house look old and abandoned and the look was somewhat like a 'witches lair'.
Sadly, I was rushed (like almost EVERY party) and didn't take any pictures of the decor around the house. The livingroom had white sheets covering the furniture, and the TV console had black Halloween fabric covering it with candles and Halloween-esque decor, with webs galore!
We played old Halloween movies on the TV (like Dracula, Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein), and put orange string lights around our banisters.
We also sanded down our old black Ikea chairs to make them look old and aged. We also added blue and red light bulbs in some of the fixtures and lamps.
The kitchen was dark and gloomy, lit by candles and black lights. And my husband got dry ice to add to our punch bowl and a cauldron we had as a centerpiece.
My hutch had different potions and bottles displayed with more creepy fabrics, candles and webs.
And here are the pictures of the dessert table. The colors were black, white and green.
What we served:
popcorn, veggies (all green) and dip, green apples with caramel, chocolate truffles, meringue bones, macarons, green velvet cupcakes, caramel apple rice krispy treats and had different candies (black and white candy sticks, skull pops, green apple jellybeans, black licorice, green gummy frogs, and yogurt covered raisins).
And here's us in our costumes.
I was a pink butterfly, the hubby was Vector from Despicable Me (here's a picture if you don't remember the character), and the kiddos were a one-eyed monster, a mouse, and a black cat.
We had a blast! Gotta love Halloween! Enjoy your own festivities. And come back tomorrow to hear about some more of the details! Thanks for stopping by!
