Halloween Party 2011 Recap

I’m excited to finally have had the time to put together the pictures from our Halloween party! The decorations were fairly similar to previous years.  We had our DIY creepy lighted portraits over the mantel

Some ravens on the chandelier…

A spookified half bath…

Specimen jars…

And our DIY milk jug pumpkins outside…

As usual, we had enough food to feed a small army.

“Wizard Gizzards” {a.k.a. meatballs}…

“Cheesy Bones” {a.k.a. Parmesan bread sticks}…

“Bacon Wrapped Eyeballs” {a.k.a. bacon wrapped water chestnuts}…

Brain Jell-O…

“Graveyard Plots” {a.k.a. dirt cake cups}…

And “Brain Smear Cupcakes” {a.k.a chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with butter cream frosting}…

The party theme was “Dearly Departed,” so we embellished the cupcakes, water bottles, and more with some death themed images.  I tried to keep them cute rather than morbid; I think the grim reaper is adorable!

We had “Witch’s Brew”…

And “Blood Punch”…

There were lots of cool costumes this year, some of which followed the “Dearly Departed” theme and some of which did not.  We had a witch from “Hocus Pocus”…

An operation game man, as you saw in the tutorial from earlier this week…

A freaky looking zombie…

And a series of Chris Farley characters!  This was super clever; there were costume changes throughout the night from some of Chris Farley’s most famous SNL skit characters!

We had a soccer player from Barcelona…

A Mad Hatter…

And the cutest couple costume winners, Juno and Pauly Bleeker.  {And yes, she is preggo!}

Eddie had a great time at the party, but let’s just say he’s not much of a late night party animal…

I hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween; it is seriously one of the best holidays! 🙂
