I made these invitations: Zac told me I could only use materials that I alread had to make them so this is what I came up with. I am acutally quite happy with how they turned out.
We played a game with Halloween words or phrases on our back that we had to try and figure out, a finish the spooky phrase game, we gave each couple two rolls of toilet paper and they had to make the fastest mummy, and we ended with Err Vroom. I was surprised with how well some of them did on Err Vroom, they had to just end the game because they were doing so well. Zac said that is what happens when you play with Masters students.
And a list of the goodies we had: Oreo Truffles, Carmel Brownie Bites, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, Frappe, Wassail, Apples, Veggies & Dip, and a bowl of halloween candy. I think all I ate during the party was a few carrots and apples, but there was WAY too much food left over so I have had my share of sweets.
Now I am looking forward to what we can plan for Christmas. :)
Here are just a few pictures of the decorations. We also had streamers up and I forgot to take a picture of the food table but oh well.
Our front door:
These were hanging above the food table:
And this was the one wall that I decorated:
This is how our mantel has looked since the beginning of September because I was just ready for Fall, sad to say that it hadn't shown its face until last week, but we sure enjoyed the warm weather while it lasted.
And I apparantly left a bag of cookies hanging over the edge of the counter top and Gavin decided he would help himself to them. I walked over to the kitchen to find him like this. He didn't seem to mind that he was sitting in a mound of crushed pumpking chocolate chip cookies.
