Hey guys! I'm excited to share this year's Witch Party photos with you. This year's party went really well. We were fortunate enough to have some nice, almost summery weather the night of the party. Things came together in a more organized way than ever, but then I guess we should have it together after having a Witch Party for 16 years! Can you believe it? Neither could our guests.
Here's one of this year's invitations. Going through the shops this year, I haven't been so much inspired by the Halloween merchandise as the Day of the Dead stuff. So I was in the mood for bright colors as well as gold for some reason.
See the eyeball? I was inspired by those Bizarro comics. You know how there's an eyeball hidden in those?
This picture goes to show how nice the weather has stayed. There are still zinnias out there.
So I added a little glitter to the printout and there ya go:
I was happy to find the last pack of those glitter balls at Dollar Tree. Can you believe they were only $1.00?
You'll have to bear with the angles on these photos, because it's hard to take a picture of your own foot. OK, so I wanted to show you a special feature of these socks. Here's one folded over:
And when you lift the cuff, you can see the skeleton's polka-dot boxers!
The earrings I wore:
Cinnamon Hearts (Go to page 20 in the pdf)
So I decided to decorate each pumpkin a little differently:
Some were different warm colors and others had faces like traditional jack-o-lanterns.
We had a new kind of ice cream, at least to us. It's called Chicago Brick, I assume because it looks like bricks on old Chicago buildings? Chicago Brick is three flavors: Orange Sherbet, Vanilla, and Caramel. It is so good! You might not think these flavors would go together, but they do.
We had fun playing around with some of those photo props on sticks:
I went outside to take a few photos as it got darker.
This skull you might remember from years past. You've usually seen it hanging out in the trick-or-treat bowl.
A lavender scented dryer ball, which was new to me. It smells really good!
And a cute little witch ornament. Her hands were naturally out like that so I gave her one of the candies to hold.
Although, I think she could hang from that loop on her hat, she's propped up here on a candle holder.
