Something Wicked this way comes

Oh my goodness what a night. We have the most wonderful friends in our neighborhood. One of them is Bridgett Server who had a scrap book company that was so successful that she sold it for a lot of money and now channels that creativity and money into fabulous parties that she invites all her closest friends too. Like 200 of us! She built my dream house in Alpine, if my French cottage is still on the market we can aford it  we will buy it and live happily ever after! Here is the rundown of how the party went down. 11:00 Went to Kmart (haven't been in years) to get witches tights, my hairdresser said they had them (they did not) but I did find a darling slivery cape not to mention some Christmas presents that I know have stashed away. 1:00 Off to Haylee's to carve pumpkins a cute little black spray painted number with a silver glittery skull so cute! Did not win the iPod touch so sad. 3:00 clean house get pizza for dinner and start makeup, finish the pumpkin trifle that I will be adding to the catered event. 5:30 bry home and the crazy begins, get his head painted finish his costume and off we go. (Forgot my darling broom). Get to the event at 7:00 and are greeted by a professional photographer where we are swept away into a lair of Halloween bliss. I have only dreamed of such parties as mine are always on a very tight budget. But if I had the time and money this is what my parties would look like!!!!!!

then to our surprise the line for the food was so long about a half an hour wait, but what a wait it was so delicious we ate our fill of spicy chicken and pork so tender it melted in your mouth, baked pears and these chocolate mounds of Oreo toped with moose dipped in chocolate yum I had two. around 9:00 we started dancing and the party really began, ok so we have about 100 people in the basement dancing our hearts outs and not a drop of alcohol in sight it was so fun, and yes that's me doing the splits I still know how to command an audience or make a fool of myself whatever works. 10:30 stager out of the monster mash tired and happy after spending the night with friends old and new, food and fun oh what a night.

I want this chandler in my kitchen minus the skulls it is huge I would have to find it a little smaller. OH the candy bar this was just part of it. She had bags for us to take the little goodies home to our little goblins. So cute and easy!

Love it, Love it!!! I'm SO sad we missed the party. It looks like you guys all had a riot.
Austin was feeling yucky, then better, then yucky ... so I didn't feel that great about leaving him with a sitter.
Shoot; maybe next year she'll throw a big party again. Glad you posted some pictures!

So I had a peek of the pictures on facebook and thought it was YOUR halloween party (the decor. seemed totally your style...amazing!) I didn't comment (I think because I was a bit bummed not to be I silly or what). That looks like the party of the season. Oh to have high roller friends, very fun.
