If you’re as big of a Halloween fan as I am, you’ll probably want to add a ghoulish twist to your monthly girls night out (or in) in honor of Halloween. What? Some of you don’t do girls night!? Ladies if you’re not having them yet, its time to start! GNO is a monthly retreat away from my husband, mommy duties, household chores and other obligations, to simply hang with my friends and just have a good time (without someone slobbering or spilling food on me.)
Since this was a collaboration with my favorite bloggers, we split up the responsibilities (which made it so nice for me!) Normally I’m doing everything, (and running around like a crazy person) I barely have time to get ready for for my own party, its quite the dilemma, so this was a nice change.
And boy was I in good hands, Sara made the invitation and I LOVE it. Don’t you just love when someone rocks at what they do?Sandy (who was my partner in crime, planning this event) made up the cutest hot cocoa bar with all the fixings: Candy corn, ghost shaped mallows, chocolate chips, flavored syrup and fresh whipped cream. It was to die for, pun intended.Can we just stop for a second to admire Gentri’s bat costume, she made her wings from an old umbrella, it was GENIUS!
These delicious cream puffs and creamy pumpkin soup with parmesan cheese “cobwebs” were made by the lovely Caroline aka Mary Poppins, but I’m pretty sure she’s the REAL Mary Poppins. Just look at those “practically perfect” pumpkin cream puffs!? Oh gloriousness!
I’m sure someone will ask, so the cups, platters, plates and decorations came from TaiPan. Can I tell you why I LOVE Tai Pan Trading? Its because they have the most amazing selection! Its so nice to have those one-stop-shops for party needs.
