So I posted my cupcakes from my last premiere party over on the dessert section. But this year I want to go all out and theme the crap out of this party!
For those of you who don't know, Dexter is a TV series on Showtime about a serial killer that only kills other serial killers. It's an awesome show. http://www.sho.com/site/dexter/home.do
It premieres September 27th! Yay!
I would love to hear about anyone else's Dexter parties or their ideas for future ones. Here are some ideas I had along with questions.
For decoration goes I thought I could drape plastic drop cloths or plastic wrap over the walls. I would love to do it all over the house and furniture but we will see how expensive and difficult that gets.
I also am going to try and find some of that crime scene tape they have during Halloween and put that around in places. And maybe some framed blood spatter. That would obviously be very easy and inexpensive to make.
For tableware I'm thinking I want to get clear plastic plates and blood spatter them on the underside so you get the cool look without having paint in your food. haha But does anyone know what type of paint I should use for that? I want it to stick on there well and not rub off on peoples hands. Maybe just a paint that's maybe for plastic or something? Or should I go ahead and like spray a clear sealant over it too?
For the food I'm going Cuban! I'm going to make Cuban Midnight sandwiches. Maybe have some plantain and other chips. Not sure what else though, would love some ideas!
Still thinking about the dessert too. Here are the cupcakes I made for last year.
I made these for Halloween too so I don't want to make them again. But definitely some kind of cake. Maybe various severed body parts?
Ok I think that's it! I hope other people share my love for Dexter and share their awesome crafty ideas.
