Our Halloween Party 2010

I absolutely LOVE halloween and hosting an annual party is one of the highlights I actually look forward to every year!  This year was a bit more challenging though...I've never had to plan it, while working before:(  I made it work though, the guys at work got to see my "Martha Stewart" crafts come to life!  Ha Ha, I kind of multi-task...a LOT;)
Right before the guests arrived, I tried to take a few shots to set the stage...

Thanks to my girls and their friends, these garbage bags turned out awesome!

Chocolate fountain...

"Choose Your Poison" Italian Soda Bar...

These coffin favors are one of my favorite things to make!  They actually hold the perfect amount of candy and they are super festive looking:)  I found them a couple of years ago while watching a Martha Stewart episode.  If you'd like the pattern, you can click here.

This year's theme was Witches & Vampires...I had fun with the invitations...inviting guests to a party where the guys all "sucked" and the girls were total "witches", how often can you say that with out getting in trouble?!  Ha Ha...LOVED IT!  Of course I had to add a little vinyl to the background, they were supposed to be thought bubbles.  Hopefully you get the idea!

The Palmers

The Clarks

The O'Neill's

The Norths

The White's

Good Times...

My gorgeous sis!

Greg rockin his gothic style

Two witchy sisters;)

The whole group...almost the Clarks were taking the pics in this one:(

Melanie made her costume...completely awesome and yes, she won for the best witch:)
We didn't get a photo of the winner of the best vampire...but it was Rob aka "The Count!"

 One of our favorite games to play is the "Oddlywed" game, we come up with different questions each year to see who knows who the best!  It always sparks the BEST conversations!  Ha Ha, this year it was Greg and Shavonne who won the Clarks by 1 point!  So they were awarded 2 movie tickets where they could take a night off from chatting...apparently they already knew eachother pretty well;)
 Whenever there's a winner there has to be a loser:(  Ha Ha, so close, but unfortunately the Palmer's came in last, so we sentenced them to a date where they would be working closely together and could work on some of their conversation skills:)  Ha Ha!
