Last year was our 2nd annual Halloween get together. We do snacks, dinner and desserts, while catching up and watching scary movies. Paranormal Activity, Mirrors, etc.... plus lots of candy, trick or treating and kids running in and out throughout the night!
So here are the pics....I can't believe I didn't get a wide shot of the food table!!
I know my Grandmother would not like knowing her candleabra holding my "bloody dripping candles"! I simply bought a red candlestick, lit it, then let the red wax drip onto these white candlesticks (over a paper plate to catch drips). The candleabra is one of my favorite things from Grandmother. My sister has the other one - they sat on her buffet and when we were little girls visiting Papa & Grandmother in Orlando, we'd always swing the crystals and listen to them clink together!!
|My coffee table served as the apps table. We had a shrimp cocktail platter, plus fruit and veggie platters. I made a 7 layer Mexican dip and the green goddess dressing was squirted on in circles, then added the web design over them! |
|My puking pumpking. He's puking my turkey bacon cheeseburger mixture as the dip. Served this with small rolls to make mini sandwiches.|
|This pumpkin is filled with "pumpkin poop" - they are just sprinkled donut holes from Dunkin Donuts!|
|Jack o'lantern pizza using sharp cheddar shapes. I'll use larger pieces of cheese next time!|
|My zombie girl|
|So sad - this was the only pic I got of my soldier boy - and he literally bounced out of the frame - too much sugar!|
|The Aftermath of our appetizer table!|
|One of my hurricanes filled with candy corns and creepy spiders from Pier One!|
|Fall Mantle, 2010|
|Apple nachos - sliced apples topped with melted marshmallow fluff, drizzled with caramel sauce, then topped with chocolate chips and sprinkles!|
