Halloween Party Invitation Idea

So last year, we used a Martha template and made our own spin on the "finger in the box" invite.  Here's our version!!!  And a couple other pics from last year's party.

In other news, my friend Vanessa (for whom I hosted the shower I blogged about) gave birth to a healthy 7.5lb, 20'' baby boy named Elijah Emlen yesterday at 3:30 PM.  He is a doll!  I am so proud of her and her new little family.  Keep them in your prayers ladies! 

We used Tanner's hand as a mold. And yes, we burnt the edges on like 16 different invitations :)

"Just A Reminder"

I don't know how well you can see them, but I wore those "Wild Eyes" contacts that are totally white.  It was really scary!  But very very cool.

I got to rent a costume from the local theater.  I don't really know what I was but I dubbed it the "dead queen."

Here's a few random pictures from our party:

We're going to host one again this year, although it will be more of a joint effort.  We are toying with the idea of doing dessert/bonfire over at a friends house.  That should be fun.  Any of you who are near northwestern Montana -- feel free to come on by! :) 

I still haven't decided on invitations for this year, but I'm thinking about getting some smaller white pumpkins, carving a simple Jack-O-Lantern face, and then sticking a note to it and leaving them lit on people's doorsteps who live in town.  Cool idea?  It would be a lot of work but wouldn't that be fun to get???  Hey, at least its not a flaming bag of poo :D 


It was a TOTAL success.  I even took pictures of it.  haha.  I'm such a dork.

Here's what was on it:

-  Artichoke hearts
-   Lots n' LOTS of garlic
-  Plum Tomatoes
-  Red onion
-  Olive Oil
-  Chicken
-  Rosemary and basil
-  Parmesan, Mozzarella, and Feta cheese
-  Alfredo sauce (just a little bit)
-  We used 2 different crusts to see which was better; a precooked boboli (total crap) and then the roll out kind in a can (HEAVEN IN A CIRCLE)

I think I might make another one tonight!!!
