Happy All Hallows...

Halloween 2008 is now behind us. Our little get together to hand out the goodies went well and we're now cleaning up.

Here are a few photos from the nights festivities.

Thanks to another great idea from Martha, I made this no bake cheesecake the night before the party. The spider web design was super easy to make and it got oohs and ahhs from the guests.

I focused most of the effort on decorating the outside of the house but I did a few things to outfit the indoors as well. Like these mouse silohuettes which were a steal at $5/package at Michaels crafts. (Also from Martha Stewart.)

I made a coffee table centerpiece using a small skeleton I had in my old Halloween decorations box.

I created a little witches brew bar with some extra plastic spiders, black thread and green food coloring. I didn't get a great photo of this but this was a very last minute project and it turned out really cool with the spiders looking very eerie in the green liquid.

And of course the Wisteria candelabra looked pretty fab with its dripping candles on the buffet.

And yes, I decided to keep it but I bought some dripless candles for non Halloween use.

And in case anyone is counting, we gave more than two thousand pieces of candy out last night to all the tirick or treaters big and small. We saw some great costumes including an invisible man, the Mona Lisa and a bridge to nowhere. 364 days and counting til Halloween 2009...

    Jay and I went to a Halloween party last night hosted by a couple that loves Halloween just as much as you. It was a Dexter theme (Showtime TV show.) The entire party room was wrapped in visqueen (sp?) with all kinds of scary elements protruding from the plastic. It was amazing.

  15. I just found your blog via mabelshouse...amazing! I absolutely LOVE your beautiful home. She is a grand old lady don't you wish her walls could talk? I've been lurking and catching up on all your posts and just wanted to de-lurk and say hello. :) I have serious house envy! BTW, I have an etsy shop and I would love to send you one of my prints (if I may be so bold as to assume you would even want one.) I didn't notice an email address on your blog so I thought I'd post a comment here and if you are interested you can email or convo me. If not, no worries and no hard feelings! :)

    Thank you for the inspiration!

  18. Wow...that is ONE awesome Halloween bash. My favorite is the mice. How creative are you?!?!? Gosh, I looked at halloween a whole different way.

    QUESTION: Post idea...can you share what your must-have entertaining basics are? I noticed your white ruffle cake stand and tall glass cylinder in several. Any others you always go-to?

  19. Not a huge fan of Halloween (more of a Thanksgiving person, I think). That being said, I LOVE all the stuff you did for your fabulous house and all your party ideas. Love your house, your decorating, love it ALL. Thanks for sharing.
