All Ghouls Halloween Party 2011 (Warning: Pic Heavy!)

As I said in my last post, my big Halloween bash was last weekend (see invitation here), at which I had 28 middle school ghouls in attendance - PHEW!! We had tons of fun, though! Wanna see?

Here was the schedule:

7-7:30          Ghouls arrived; voted on costumes, guessed candy
                     corn and witch's brew ingredients
7:30-8          Scavenger Hunt
8-8:20          Apple Bobbing
8:20-8:30     Announcement of Winners
8:30-10        Dance Party

The dessert table to "DIE" for!!

 Witch Finger butter cookies and Cake Pop Eye Balls
(red velvet cake inside for bloody effect-YUM!)
"Potions" and snacks table
The voting table for witch's brew,
candy corn count & to grab a glow stick!

Bathroom decor: Bath & Body Works soap, lotion
& candle, Kohl's towels, Target rug, Joann black letters

My dollar store glasses with vinyl using 
Cricut Happy Hauntings fonts welded on my Gypsy!

The vamp drinking "blood" (so meant to get a photo of us
together with our glasses - oops!) . Then the vamp was
about to take a bite out of our oldest ghoul prom queen
who ended up getting voted best costume by her ghoulfriends!

The voting of costumes and guessing of
candy corn and witch's brew ingredients
(yes, our brew was "brewing" thanks to dry ice!)

Younger daughter ghoul and her classmates about
to go on the scavenger hunt with the vamp

Older daughter ghoul and her classmates about to go 
on the scavenger hunt with "The Witch" (that's ME!)

The older ghouls on the "hunt" - I think this may be
the last year for the scavenger hunt. The older ones
just weren't as into it as the previous year.

The apple bobbing!

The Dance Party!
It was a big hit with the strobe light & other fun lighting!

Prizes for the costumes with buttons to wear -
Bath & Body Works Halloween lotion, lip gloss, shaped
anti-bac, pencil,Target $1 sticky notepad and candy

prizes for guessing the candy corn & witches brew
(contents same as costume prizes)

The treat bag filled with a Bath & Body Works hand sanitizer
($0.37 each 4 days before the party!), candy & a pencil 

Overall, this was a successful bash for this witch. I am entering the fun details of my party into Decorate to Celebrate's Halloween Party Challenge and Patches of Pink's Link Up Party!

(Insert my witch cackle here)

Happy spooky crafting everyone! Have a fabulous weekend!

Decorate to Celebrate sent me over and I am thrilled to have found your blog! I told my girls this year that starting next year I thought we should just have a party at our house instead of them going trick-or-treating. They will be 18 and 15 next year and I think it is about time. They groaned at me, but if we had a party like this, I think they would be okay with it :) I love everything you did! I am a new follower of your fabulous blog. I know I will get tons of inspiration here!
