7 Sleeps Until Nightmare Before Christmas Party
Well, I am psyched beyond belief that I will be finally throwing a Halloween Party. Even more psyched because it will be Nightmare Before Christmas themed.
I made the invitations a few weeks ago. They make me very happy. Here's a picture of the front:
Decorating might possibly the most fun for this party but a lot of work.
I'm made a huge cut out of moonlight hill and put it up on my basement wall. It's made out of Bristol Board and I believe the lady at Dollarama thought I'd gone psycho when I walked up with a kazllion pieces. So, here's a picture of it:
I'm also planning on digging out my artificial christmas tree, covering it with those fake cobweb things and other Halloween decorations and stealing some of my brothers fake gross things and wrapping them up for my guests to open. My baby brother and I are carving our pumpkins NBC themed this year. Mine will have the cruly mountain (
) and my brother's will be Jack Skellington's head.
(The pictures of these will be up within a week.)
Food should be fairly easy. The party doesn't begin until after supper so I only need to worry about snacks. I'll have the classic chips and pop there for my guests but I'm also going to make sugar cookies and decorate them with Jack Skellington's head and Moonlight Hill.
I'm not planning any games really for the night because knowing my friends they would rather just chillax and hang out. Therefore, the main activity for the night will be a Tim Burton Movie Marathon. I should have time to show Nightmare Before Christmas and the Corpse Bride before 11 when the majority of my guests will leave but for the few who will be spending the night we'll watch Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands aswell. Rocky Horror Picture show might be thrown in there for fun:) I'm also having a costume contest with a Jack Skellington stencilled tshirt as the prize. Here's a picture of the shirt:
And a close up of the stencil:
I had fun today making the party favours. I bought a bunch of shot glasses, Chocolate Pumpkin Balls and pretty Halloween mesh-ish fabric from the Dollarama and made it look pretty. Here's the picture:
Well, Craftster, if you have any ideas/suggestions or comments on my plan let me know.
Love Always, Annamarie
P.S. My costume will be Magenta from Rocky Horror Picture Show. Which I would have finished tonight if my sewing machine hadn't thrown a hissy fit.
