This years party was a Dead Man’s Party (think Oingo Boingo!) and I have declared it a success!
My kitchen while in the process of making all of the goodies.
My table being “staged” the night before. Yes, that’s my notebook sitting there with three pages that contain my “to-do list”!
The entree station set up (hot dogs and nachos) and the beverage station ready to go with some Zombie Tonic and Bat’s Brew.
A few hours of sleep later and it’s time to unwrap and start loading the table up! That eyeball in the back is the pinata that hasn’t been hung up yet… but it looks cool, right?
The fireplace is nailed shut so the zombies can’t get in, the entry way is properly lit up and the fair is bubbling and George is ready to greet guests!
Me and Mr. T; Amy and Scott and even Shorty gets dressed up for the party!
Next year I’m totally doing a photo booth! Time to scour Pinterest for easy ideas!
Mr. T and his friends – I love his theatre group, they are awesome kids!
The pinata is always a “hit”! hehehe – get it? A Hit! Yes, that is astro turf under the pinata. I have a tiny dog and I want it easy to pick up the candy and goodies that are shoved in the pinata so that nothing is left behind for Shorty to eat/choke on.
All in all I think everyone had fun, we talked and ate and played and celebrated end of the harvest! Okay, so maybe the harvest never came up, but for us, this time together is a celebration of our friendships, new and old. So, while Monster Mash played in the background we celebrated!
Oh, and I must learn the Thriller dance. 🙂
