A Halloween Affair

We celebrated our son's first birthday with a Halloween themed costume party.
Brayden Cash as Ace Ventura

Corey and I as Wayne & Garth from Wayne's World
Our Family!

Here is a {free printable} for the Bats,
I cut them out on cardstock and slightly folded each one in half- to create the illusion that they were flying. 
Candy Bar
Poison Apples- Carmel Apple
Eye of Newt- Green Grapes
Crows Bones- White Chocolate Pretzel
Witches Warts- Chocolate Chips
Spider Legs- Black Licorice
Pumpkin Teeth- Candy Corn
Monster Scabs- Wheat Thins
Witches Fingernails- Bugles
Zombie Teeth- Yogurt Covered Granola
Night Crawlers- Gummy Worms with Crumbled Oreos
Hallowed Frog Eyes- Sour Gummy Lifesavers
Ghost Poop- Marshmallows

(I bought different size drinking glasses from the dollar store and filled them with the goodies.
 You could also use different size vases, but I wanted something that I could resuse.)

Dragon Blood Punch
(adult punch)
Apple Juice - 46 ounce
Cranberry Juice- 48 ounce
Ginger Ale - 2 Liters
Berry Vodka - 1 bottle
Red Hawaiian Punch - 46 ounce

(I added a frozen ice hand in also, by filling up a rubber glove then removed the glove once frozen.)
Swap Juice
(Children's Punch)
Limeade- Frozen- 12 ounce
Lime Sherbet- 1 quart
Sprite- 2 Liters
(With ice hand)
Special Brews and Poisons
We filled mason jars with fake ears, fingers, a heart and a brain.
There was also a hand- chilled on ice.
The rest of the bottles I spray painted and labeled with different spooky, creepy ingredients.

I covered the canvas we have hanging in our dining room with black fabric and painted
"Happy Birthday Brayden"- with white fabric paint.
Floating Witches Hats & a Broom- hung with fishing line.
Bloody Towels 

We turned out bathroom into a creepy crime scene. 
((This part was for adults only- a little too scary for the kiddos.))
We got a mans head from the spirit Halloween store. This head inspired the whole creepy bathroom idea. My husband built a body out of a men's dress shirt and a pair a jeans. 
He stuff the clothes with newspaper and added some wire to the legs and arms so that he could bend the man in place, and to help make it look a little more realistic. 
  We got the fake blood from the spirit store also! 
((It washed off our bathtub with just soap and water.)) 

Spooky Candles

I bought white pillar candles and a black and red candle stick. 
Light the candlestick and drip the wax down the pillar candles.  
We made a Time Capsule for Brayden

We also had a jar filled with Candy Corns- for kids to guess how many were inside, for a prize.

Most of the décor was made and installed by me, my husband and my mom.
We may or may not have went a little over board.. haha. But it turned out great, defiantly will go down in the books as one to remember.
However, I am not so sure how we are going to top this party in the years to come?!
Happy Birthday to our handsome baby boy!
Happy Halloween to you all!
