Haunted Halloween Party
I went to the most amazing Halloween Party last weekend. Do you guys remember my friend Cupcake Julie’s Holiday parties? This one and this one? Well she haunts as good as she spreads holiday cheer. From statues to spiders, flickering lights to floating fog, the night was full of all kinds of frightfully fun sights and spooky sweets, too.
I made some of my eyeball cake pops to bring to the party. But this time, I dipped them using silver plastic forks instead of lollipop sticks. So much more fun and kinda gruesome. Click here for directions on how to make the original version.
To stand them up for serving, dip them in melted red candy coating and place on wax paper to dry. You can also use a toothpick to apply more red candy coating around the prongs of the fork. Bleeding eyeballs you know.
We also had scary red velvet cake skulls, skeleton brownies, chocolate mice, cookie bones, s’mores trifles, butterscotch puddings, mini pies and more. So much sweet fun.
But not as much fun as her Halloween decorations. Check out this larger than life-size Count Dracula.
And this little vampire statuette.
On piano… we have skeleton fingers.
A serving tray of body parts anyone?
A big book of spells.
Chains, ghouls, spiders and skulls. Spooky decorations were everywhere.
There were animatronic fortune tellers and floor crawling zombies, too.
Ummm… drinks anyone? The crazy chemist had some fun concoctions for us.
And this guy. He was hanging around outside to greet arriving guests.
Me? I went as a spider. But I was completely outdone by their front entrance.
And, I hate spiders, but somehow I wanted to hug this one.
Julie’s husband had the most amazing giant Grim Reaper costume.
And when I say giant, I mean towering. He was walking around on drywall stilts in creepy slow motion. Needless to say, we all wanted a photo with him.
Oh my gosh. This is awesome and probably my favorite part. When you went in the bathroom and leaned in to wash your hands, a ghost in the vanity mirror screams and scares the daylights out of you. So creepy. So fun.
There was a cemetery, too! Julie handmade all of these tombstones. And the lettering. Yeah… crazy!!! She used a drimmel to carve out all the words so the letters would look like they were etched out of stone. True dedication!
Oh … I can’t forget the creeping fog. It definitely set the mood for the night.
P.S. … That’s a wig I bought, but now I kinda want silver hair. What do you think?
Hope this Halloween is haunted and happy for you … and of course filled with the cutest spooky treats.
