Well, our annual shindig has been and gone and it’s time to share the photos.

We went a little different with our invites this year, making them and mailing them out rather than leaving them on doorsteps. We made them as ransom notes, meticulously cutting out all the letters from the local papers.. but only the once. We copied the original and printed the rest out!

I made a couple of things for the party this year. First up this wreath for the front door – feathery and full of eye balls. Made from feather boas it’s just cute enough *grins*

Next came these candles that I dotted about the place. Made from pvc and hot glue, then painted and aged. They have battery powered tealights inside them that give a nice glow and flicker without the fire hazard!

We ended up pumpkin carving at midnight in order to get everything done.

We made the usual array of food, I went a little crazy with the cake and the gingerdead men, yes, you read that right, gingeDEAD men! I was cackling inside my head while piping the blood on them.

We took our usual portraits as people arrived, I think we may have only missed one or two this year!

Happy Halloween!
