7  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Halloween party: decorations and food on: November 02, 2015 06:43:48 AM
Hi everyone!
It's been a while since I posted a project but I really wanted to post this one!
Because my boyfriend's birthday is on the 30th of October and mine on the 9th of November,
we decided it would be cool to organize a Halloweeny Birthday party! And So we did!

I went all over the internet and gathered ideas that I liked (and asked my bf if he liked them too)
This is what we went for.
The bats are all hand cut and painted (because I ran out of black spray paint...) I tried to stick them on the wall as if they are flying towards you from the witches house. Did that work? They are all cereal box, cake box cardboard Cheesy Much easier to cut with scissors than the thicker ones.

Because we just moved in, we had a lot of left over cardboard boxes. The letters BOO are drawn and cut out of cardboard, then spray painted with black paint. I added spiderwebb to the painting and made 4 spooky candle holders.

These are made from mason jar type jars haha Cheesy I spray painted the inside with white paint and draw a halloween scene on the outside. I bought a few more of these from the thrift store (only 0.50) for Christmas decorations!

These are two tall drinking glasses which I put some transparent paper onto, drew faces and then put hot glue on the outside. Painted it black and done!

I'm a harry potter fan so when I saw our mirror, I went "wait a minute..."

Random spider webs

Onto the Food
First up are our Balls of dirt! (or as my bf read 'Balls of Diet' "those can be scary too") These are oreo plus cream cheese smashed together and shaped into little balls. They look horrible but taste quite good. Very heavy though.

Used Q-tips. I added an instruction to these snacks.
1. Take Q-tip
2. Apply wax
3. Enjoy
haha Cheesy These are marshmallows cut up into little pieces (we don't have mini ones around here) the sticks are white chocolate which makes knispers sounds when you eat it. And the wax is peanut butter.

Creepy rocky road. Ever since the mom of an English friend told me about Rocky Road I had to make it and this was the best occasion to do so!
It has peanut butter, dark and milk chocolate, marshmallows, crushed m&m's and sour worms.

Brains made from rice krispies and pink marshmallows. The red is icing. I bought food colouring but ended up not using it because the marshmallows were pink enough.
It looks gross when making plus my pot was full of marshmallow fluff. (Tip when your cooking pot looks like a disaster. Pour water into it, a little cleaning soap, add a lid and warm it 'till the water starts boiling, your pot will be squeaky clean without you doing anything!)

Chocolate coated apples.
The brown is milk chocolate, the green is white chocolate with food colouring.
These weren't that popular though... haha Cheesy

Then I also made chocolate cake and added some of the green and brown chocolate on top and made a swirley drawing, just because. No picture though...

Then costumes!
I made everyone dress up to fit the Halloween theme and had been asking what my bf wanted to be. He didn't have an idea so zombie it was! This is done on last minute. We took an old white tshirt. I cut it up, tear some holes in it and added green, brown, yellow and red paint. His face is done with a combination of regular make-up and face paint. The scars are made with tacky glue, leaving to dry and then applying on his face with eyelash glue. I added make-up to blend it in, and added lipgloss to give it that shiny look.

Ain't he pretty Cheesy

This glue of his neck wound didn't hold up very well because it was a place that moved very much but this made it even creepier, like he was actually loosing this flesh and rotting.

If you made it to the end of this gigantic post, thank you very very much for reading! I would love to know what you think! I had so much fun doing this as this was the first time I could decorate a place for this holiday! I can't wait for Christmas. Already want to start decorating! Cheesy
