A fanciful twist on a Halloween party

The party’s tonight,
what’s there to do?
Halloween planning
and costumes and food.
IMG_7511.JPG

Time to go shopping
for last minute treats,
spooky decorations
and lots of good eats!
IMG_7483.JPG

Decorations and
favors chosen with care
will make this party
one festive affair.

What’s a party without
some entertainment?
Movies and music
add to this event.
IMG_7424.JPG

Shuffling through choc’late,
pouncing on candy,
so many good things; the
shopping cart’s handy.

The chains have been hung
by the gravestone with care
in hopes that party guests
soon will be scared.
(boo!)

Bats fly through the leaves.
Ghosts float by the trees.
Punkins stand guard to
greet guest attendees.

Just past the gravestone,
the house on the hill.
Black cat welcomes you
“Follow me, if you will.”
IMG_7928.JPG

Catch them while you can
quick, shifty spiders.
Don’t pass up a sip
vampire blood cider

Booberry muffins,
bloody good cupcakes,
goofy punkin smiles,
and the vault of grapes.

Bite size appetizers
scrumptious finger food,
sweets, treats and meats,
finger-lickin’ good.

There’s food all spread out
to tantalize all
and once guests arrive,
we’ll all have a ball.

And here they come now….

IMG_7432.JPG

Pandas with cocoa.
Pooh, honey and tea.
As for the goldfish,
they’re just so tasty.

IMG_8208.JPG

What happens, Catnap,
no more candy corn?
He’s prowling around,
and looking sixlorn.
IMG_8121.JPG

IMG_8125.JPG

Owls huddle and chat,
times screeching good.
Puff and his minions
march off to find food.
IMG_8233.JPG

IMG_8269.JPG

Be it dark or light,
spooky or bright, beware
those who might pounce on
candy, unaware.
IMG_8235.JPG

IMG_8266.JPG

IMG_8255.JPG

Farewell for now, dear
partygoers. Come
back through the year for
more visual fun!

    Fun from start to finish!
    I am glad safe travel was considered throughout.
    Lion in the pumpkin made me laugh out loud!
    You do dark photos so very very well!
    I think I will avoid the spider cakes, please.

      Always, always be safe in your travels. Wearing seatbelts is the law, and The Guys do not break the law. They will break into a bag of chocolate…but that’s another matter. So glad you had a delight-full party with us.

    How come no one ever goes shopping with me! :( I bet I would get at least 13 wonderful things if I had such companions in my cart.

    Those lady fingers look deliciously creepy, by the way. :D

      The Guys like to be a part of it all…and they wanted to be sure enough food was purchased. They do know how to throw a party. And healthy…the ladyfingers were low-fat meats.

      *sighhhh…* They Guys know they are cute, and the more people tell them that, the more smug they get about it. :) But they like a good time, always share, and stay safe and healthy. So glad you had a FABulous time partying with us.

    So, is this real American Halloween? Thanks for this post.

      “Real American Halloween?” Hmmmm….that varies with the individual host. Certainly punkins, orange-n-green colors, black cats, skeletons and ghosts, and lots of candy and food make up an American Halloween. Add in some cute Guys who eat until they become stuffed…and yes, you’ve got a fun Halloween party here in the States. Boo!
