Last Saturday night was our 4th annual Halloween party and my photographic evidence of the event is sorely lacking. Honestly, my enthusiasm for the indoor decorating – the tablescape and the food stuff – was also sorely lacking this year. I think planning my installation as Kiwanis President back in September sapped all of my creative energy for the rest of the fall season. Nevertheless, I managed to create a menu that was varied and delicious, Dale successfully executed the physical manifestations of the ideas in my head, and our friends came and ate and drank and danced and watched the Red Sox and had an all around good time. And I do have a few photos to show you.
The buffet table was set with our usual props – skeletons and black ribbons, candles and lots of gauze-y material. I’m definitely feeling the need to try something new for this next year and I’m already trolling Pinterest for inspiration.
Dale and I went as the main characters from my most favorite ever scary movie, Halloween. He was Michael Myers and I was Laurie Strode and I’m so glad my friend Anne captured us in character.
I have to say that the costume prop of the evening was the beard. We had a priest and we had moonshiners and we had Duck Dynasty. All complete with fake bears.
Dale created this scary thing and hung it on the wall. I think it’s a cross between the girls in The Grudge and The Ring. Whatever she was, I wouldn’t let him leave it in the house overnight. Scary bitch.
I served the usual Halloweenies (mini hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls) and macaroni & cheese muffins and deviled eggs and buffalo chicken dip. This year I also added some delicious pizza puffs and this mummy shaped cheese creation. It was good but I think next year I’m returning to pimiento cheese because it’s way better.
There were lots of other decorations and lots of other friends in costume, lots of laughs and lots of fun. I’m already looking forward to planning next year’s party!
