Halloween Part Two: Our Party

Saturday night we had our first annual Halloween party. We had a lot of fun. Theo and I worked hard all day Saturday to get everything ready and it was definitely worth it!

I printed our menu on some cute Halloween paper and hung it under our ghost wreath.

We served: crab dip, pumpkin cheese ball, fruit and cheese, chili and rice (Theo makes awesome spicy chili!), chicken wings, wraps, chocolate cupcakes, sugar cookies, vanilla covered marshmallows, pumpkin pie, orange punch, pink lemonade, and apple cider punch! Whew....no wonder we were so tired :)

The drink table:

The party decorations:

My mom sent us these chalkboard paint rocks she made a couple of weeks ago. They were a perfect addition to the table!

I ordered the paper decorations off of etsy. It included a banner, water bottle labels, silverware labels, little signs, and a whole lot of other stuff. It came as a PDF file, I just had to print them off. I did all of the kids' birthday party stuff by hand. This was much easier! I thought they gave the party a nice touch! What can I say...I've been perusing party planning websites waaaaay too much :)
