Our Halloween Costume Party

Pin It!
I've always wanted to throw a 
Halloween Costume Party.
{I just love dressing up & being someone else for a day!}

Hunny & I just hosted a party & we 
invited a few of our favorite couples. We had so much fun.
-These were the decorations over the buffet table-

The evening included good food, games & {of course}
AWESOME COSTUMES!
Here are a few that knocked my socks off. . .



And Hunny & I were . . . 

A lot of our guests brought their
favorite hors d'oeuvres & the food was SO delicious!
{Since we weren't having a "sit down dinner", 
I planned for things you could eat without a fork.}


For the drinks, we enjoyed telling our guests to
 "pick your poison"! 
We purchased some colorful syrups from
World Market & the grocery store for the vials.
{My girl Martha Stewart hooked me up with the plastic vials which came with the labels.}
We put some club soda & ice in a pitcher & 
everyone mixed their own {non-alcoholic} drink.


What are you going to be for Halloween?

  1. Wow! You folks went ALL OUT with your costumes. Very inspirational. I love the gender flip of little red and the wolf; and Mary and Burt is just so precious. I still don't know what we're doing in terms of costumes.... Eek!

      P.S. You look too young to be a grandmother! I thought you were in your twenties when I saw your photo. I think you've got some great genes or a special secret I'd love to learn.... ;-)

    1. Thanks so much, darling Jules. It was SO much fun to be Mary Poppins. I carried around a measuring tape - measuring people to see if they were "practically perfect in every way" {you sure are!}.

      Warmly, Michelle
