Ky's Halloween Party

I planned Ky's birth (to the best of my ability) so he would be a Halloween season baby. I love Halloween.

This party was a first for us! We had never had a party AT OUR HOUSE where we invited the birthday child's whole class plus our typical crew of 25+. We always invite the whole classes but we have done them at play centers. This was by far our biggest party yet!! I stopped counting kids once we went over 50 and that wasn't counting the adults!

Balloons, Balloons,
and MORE Balloons!
(over 200)

Our candy machine usually hangs out by the front door with skittles but we emptied him out and filled him with Reese's Pieces and gave him a costume

The lamp got a makeover with RUFFLES! 
(Ruffles are in my top ten list, right under my kids)

I cut vinyl circles out and stuck them on the pots, bought $4 mums and dropped them into pots, recovered the rocking chair pillows in orange and black polka dot fabric, & spray painted some left over curly sticks from the Christmas tree and stuck them in the mums.

We turned the garage into a haunted house......nope no pictures to be found so this is what you get (this was taken from the laundry room side of the garage and what it looked like from the outside of the tunnels. No one could see this as we had about 30 black sheets hung up to block everything. The haunted house was full of snakes, bugs, mice, skeletons, and strobe lights. HUGE HIT!! Everyone entered through the side door in the garage and crawled into 3 different tunnels that all connected inside.

Mr & Mrs Vampire after everyone went home.....
put a fork in it- IT'S DONE!!
