Halloween Fun 2014!!!

Halloween decor for my entry way!

My sister and brother-in-law hosted a family + friends Halloween Party this year.  I helped with some fun and easy spooky decor, ghoulish appetizers, and hilarious Minute to (Hallo) Ween It games!!! 

This was so fun and easy to create.  A great backdrop to capturing everyone's Halloween costumes!!  First, we just hung two strips of butcher paper.  Attached to the wall with painter's tape.  We hung some fake cob-webs, plastic over-sized spiders, and a couple of black spider web decorations to create a great backdrop for photos.

Out of our small group that attended the Halloween Party, Wayne & Garth from Wayne's World was the hot costume of the year!  With myself and my husband as Wayne & Garth and another couple!!!

Halloween Food!!

Dirt Pudding
with green food coloring for a more festive, ghoulish look and gummy worms

I put the pudding mixture in a ziploc bag for easy transportation into the individual cups.  For easy transportation to the party -- I loaded the individual cups into muffin tins so no cups went spilling in the car on the way there.  

I didn't make these cute spider cookies!  But they look awesome!! 

Pumpkin Cheeseball
2 packages of cream cheese
1 package of Buddig Beef lunch meat
1/2 Cup chopped green onion
1 Ranch Dip packet
3/4 Cup shredded cheese
3-4 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
(orange food coloring for the pumpkin color)

*there is no pumpkin flavoring, I just shaped the cheeseball to look like a pumpkin.  i used a stem from a red bell paper as the pumpkin stem.  used some chopped green onions as a little garnish on the top.  and made lines through the sides to give it a more realistic pumpkin shape!! *

Minute to (Hallo) Ween It!!

This is a great way to add some fun to any party!  They are easy games anyone can do with a party of any size.  And to make things interesting, we mixed the couples up so that we weren't teamed with spouses!!!

Wrecking Ball
{baseball or softball in this case, inside of pantyhose.  knocking down full bottles of water with the baseball, without using your hands.  it's a lot harder than it looks!!}

What a fun evening being out of character for a couple of hours and playing some greats games!!!  There were lots of laughs and lots of fun to be had!!  I hope this becomes an annual party!  It was too much fun not to!!
