Halloween Party Recap

Our BYOP Party has come and gone, and we had a blast!  I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking…
First, you remember the invitations:

And the banner

And the decorations

I planned a menu to include the following:
  • Chili
  • Cheese and sausage dip
  • Mummy dogs (hot dogs wrapped in breadsticks)
  • Dirt cake
  • Caramel apples
  • Cupcakes
  • M&M’s and candy corn
Just a tip – don’t buy this caramel for your apples:
It tastes fine, but nothing sticks to it.  I had to wet the caramel apples to get sprinkles to stick.  Boo.  We still made it work:
I picked 10 pretty red delicious apples:
Wrapped them in caramel:
Popped them in the oven for a few minutes, then wet them and decorated them:
After they were dry, I wrapped them in plastic wrap and tied them up with a cute little Halloween ribbon:
Marley helped me make dirt cake, too – love this stuff!
And cupcakes…
Marley made name cards for all the food, giving it “creepy” names 🙂
We hung our Halloween banner over the table, set everything up, and we were ready to party!
The kids made a spider craft out of egg cartons and pipe cleaners…
And what’s a Bring Your Own Pumpkin Party without pumpkin carving!
The kids had fun and so did the parents.  Good food, good friends, and a good time – now I can kick my feet up and relax til Halloween!
See you tomorrow!
