Halloween Party 2012

This weekend, we had our 2nd annual Halloween Party with the EECO's. I had a harder time getting into it this, because I had hoped we'd be in a new house by now. But since its my favorite holiday, I decided to still host my party. (Which means clean my house, which I rarely do anymore because I just want to move.)
This year, I decided that we would be pirates. I looked into buying costumes, but decided to make them instead. I LOVE how they turned out (and can't wait to dress up again on Halloween).
The table

The glasses, dripping in blood. I ordered these wine glasses just for this, but decided to get a design I could use year round. 

The feast.

Monster Mash Bites. They were my favorite thing that night. They were a little bit of work, but I will be making them again. 

I had everyone else bring the makings for a veggie tray, veggie dip, fruit tray and I made the fruit dip. I used THIS recipe, but then mixed in some poppy seeds and called it Fruit Dip with Ants.
We also had Pickeled Eyeball Punch (minus the eyballs because I couldn't find what I needed) for the guests and Happy Hallow-Tini for Josh and I. I forgot to get a picture of either, but they were both good. We did agree that the orange drinks showed the dripping blood on the glasses better then the red punch. Something to remember for the future.

Everyone's costumes turned out super cute.
Andrew was Bob Ross and Jessica was Julie Child.
Brandon & Kim were minnions.

Randi was a farie. (Todd had to go out of town, but we are so glad she joined us anyways.)

When I saw this recipe for Trash Mix w/ Worms, I decided to make it as a party favor. It was so YUMMY! I had to buy 2 extra bags of popcorn because I ate them before mixing everything together.

Then I made these cute Witch Broomstick bags to put the trail mix in. 

We had a great time and can't wait for next year. Espceially since, after the party, I remembered I had bought a Jenga skeleton game just for this party, but then forgot to pull it out. Oh well, there is always next year. ;)

I am VERY behind on my blog reading as you can tell, but we had such a great time at the party. The trash mix with worms was delicious!
