Favors for Monster Bash

Favor Collage, originally uploaded by moggiegreen.

I ordered items today for the favors for the Monster Bash party from Oriental Trading. First up, Monster Treat Cups which the guest will be able to assemble themselves. I'm going to put all the parts in different jars and containers and label them (ex. Monster Eyes etc). The "treats" will be packaged in clear bags and can them be slipped into the completed monster cups at the party. For the favors, I stuck with the monster themed items and order lollipops, lizard lips and hilarious monsters glasses with noses and furry eyebrows! I'll probably add a few pencils, glow sticks and some more candy to the bags and them add a paper topper with each guest's names.

A Tale of Two Parties

I love Halloween Parties - not the scary, fake blood sort, but a well themed dinner party with lots of fun details. This year, I'm planning two Halloween parties with two very different themes! The first will be our traditional adult dinner party with the theme this year being "A Vampire's Ball" with decorations in silver, black and crimson, candles, glittery skulls and skeletons. We're going to do a buffet this year to accomadate a few extra guest. The second party is for children and will be co-hosted by my "little sister". It is going to have a fun monster theme with bright Halloween colors of orange, black, and purple. I'll post details as they come together for each party.
