saturday night i went to my friend summer’s annual non-dress-up halloween party. summer is really into decorating and themes for holidays. i mean, all of her framed photos in the house showcase photos of halloweens past. and when november comes, thanksgiving photos will fill those frames. this girl is on top of it.
if i had to name one of my friends that most reminds me of rachael ray, summer would be the one. that’s why i was so excited to see what was on the menu for saturday’s party. i got there a little late, but i was still able to snap photos of all the halloween themed eats and treats.
the first thing she made me do when i walked in the door was take a candy corn shot. it was not optional, i soon found out.
not sure what it was.. some sort of vodka, mixer and a candy corn. i hate candy corn.. i hate shots.. so yeah, didn’t love this. but it was cute!
onto the cute food..
“spider web bean dip”: pretty self explanatory.. a 7 layer dip made to look like a web. loved this! glad i caught a shot of it before it was devoured.
“bat wings”: okay, so they were really chicken wings.. but we can pretend ;)
i enjoyed them.
“witches fingers”: rolls shaped into fingers and topped with an almond fingernail.. served with marinara sauce for dipping.
“pink eye”: these were devilled eggs colored pink.. and i am fairly certain bacon was involved.. with an olive for the eyeball!
and some veggies & green colored dip, which i consumed mass amounts of all night..
i also consumed mass amounts of these nuggets of heaven:
i cannot be trusted around pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. seriously.
there were also some other cute, spooky sugar cookies. i don’t love sugar cookies, but they sure were adorable. i mean—scary.
not sure what is so scary about mister moon.. we decided that he was not a moon at all, but a possessed banana.
so stinkin’ cute! she was jumping up trying to get everybody’s spooky food.
it was a really fun party and a great way to get in the mood for halloween.
i can’t believe halloween is already this weekend! that’s crazy. it really snuck up on me.. pretty sure it was just august, no? i did get my costume over the weekend, i love dressing up!
so, i pre-wrote this on sunday to publish on monday, knowing that monday would be pretty crazy! i am likely working 9 hours, then running some errands with my mom, then hitting the gym, then stopping by my sister’s for her birthday as well as my nephew’s birthday, then making dinner. we will see if i have time to post tonight.. if not, i will check you guys on tuesday!
1. are you dressing up for halloween this year? what are you going to be? if you have kids, what are they going to be?
2. what was the highlight of your weekend?
