Annual Coombs Family Halloween Bash...Part 1

Monday night we held our Annual Coombs family Halloween Party!  Joe and I have held this at our house for the past few years and we always have A LOT of fun!  Allow me to share some party details:


The 'Spooky' Kids table.
 {If you look closely at the left hand corner, you can see London watching her new favorite obsession.  Aladdin. She cannot get enough.}


Mummy juice boxes.  {Covered in gauze}.


Kids favors.


Spider Plates.

As for the Adults Table:




Paper plates were purchased at Michaels. The plastic containers were picked up at a local teachers store via my sis for FREE! 


I made these paper lollies for the place settings.  The two decorative circles are just cupcake liners.  The outer one I made with scrapbook paper and then I printed Halloween images off of the internet for the centers. 


Silverware/Napkin holders.

I found these DARLING, LIVE pumpkin branches at Trader Joes.  Aren't they unique?  You put them in a vase with water and you have an instant centerpiece!


As for our food....we noshed on:


SCABS - beef jerky


MONSTER MUNCH - this stuff is addicting.  I will post the recipe tomorrow.  {I always like filling cellophane bags with this and giving it out to friends and neighbors}.


MONSTER EYEBALLS - oreo truffles dipped in green chocolate with life savers and candy eyeballs on top!


VOMIT - spinach dip.  This clever little  idea was found on my friend's sisters blog JAMIEE ROSE.  {A FABULOUS blog to read!!}


PUMPKIN BONES - cheese puffs


WITCH WANDS - chocolate covered pretzel rods


GHOST POOP - mini marshmallows


GHOST POPS - vanilla flavored cakepops



Straws purchased at Fry's.



SAND-'WITCHES' - melt in your mouth ham and swiss sandwiches


CAT BITES - I have my local Basha's bakery dye a couple loafs of bread black every year for me.  The kids LOVE it!

And for dessert.....


VAMPIRE CUPCAKES.  These pumpkin flavored cupcakes were DIVINE.  My sister-in-law/food guru Jenny made them and you can find the recipe HERE.

Later tonight I bring you PART 2 of our Halloween party: favors, costumes and the oh so dreaded FEAR FACTOR game.  I'm not naming any names but.....one person barfed this year from it.  I feel like my job grossing the contestants out was well done...mwah ha ha ha!

  5. I am almost embarrassed to admit how much I've been obsessing over this post. Like, staring at the pictures late at night, pretending that I'm you.
