Sorry it's been so long but I have had some STUFF going on in my life and I just couldn't bring myself to write a post.
Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do to preserve your sanity and that's exactly what I did.....am doing.
We had our Halloween Dinner Party.
I sent out invites I did myself. Chiller font in blood red.
Then I hand drew cobwebs in all the corners and a couple of spiders on it too....tied it with a black ribbon in scroll form and hand delivered them.
There was lots of rearranging of decor too before I was happy with it.
It started out like this....
But ended up like this......
I just don't like over-sized table centerpieces that get in the way of guests being able to see and conversate with each other. (That's a Southern Word in case y'all're wondering.)
It was originally just a get together dinner of the Dinner and Board games group we belong to with some workmates. It was our turn(kind of) to host the get together and I threw out the idea of costumes as a throwaway comment- fully expecting everyone to say nah....too much trouble. But they all surprised me and threw themselves into the spirit of things....
|Velma, Shaggy and Tiny little Scooby on Shaggys shoulder.|
|Can you guess? Exactly!! Wednesday Addams and Lurch!!!!|
|A Sith Lord from Star Wars|
|Vicky Pollard from Little Britain.|
This was the menu.....
Everyone loved it.... and everyone had their favorites.
We did provide rolls in case anyone wanted sammiches instead of fork eating it- and they did.
Lurch's favs were the BBQ sauces and Pulled Pork. He ate I think 6 of the sammiches. Velma's fav was the Ranch Potatoes. Wednesday's favorite was the baked beans.
Im not sure what The Sith Lord and Shaggy's favorites were. They didn't really say.
Anyway, A good time was had by all.
And in other news, I'm going to be a Great-Grandmother around my birthday end of February.To paraphrase the Great Danny Glover- I'm too Young for this $&!%!!!!
