I am finally getting around to posting the simple but fun birthday party invite that I made for my almost 8 year old's party. His birthday is later in November, but once in awhile, we celebrate early and make it a Halloween themed party. I figure if we are going to go "all out" for Halloween, we might as well have a party too!
I saw this "mummy card" idea many moons ago in a magazine, probably Papercrafts, and finally got around to executing it. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink to give it a worn "mummyish" look, lol!Here we have some of the party decor:
Witch Fingers - find recipe here
Pickled Brain - idea found on pinterest - it is simply cauliflower floating in water with some food colouring added (note to self - do not let this hang around too long - the smell was bad and there were copious amounts of slime, ick!)
Moth Dust - I simply labelled my jar of flour to make it fit with the decor
I added Chester's collection of "potions" and potion ingredients that "live" in his room (Harry Potter theme - click here to see) and voila - centrepiece!
I kept the goodie bags simple and just stamped my skeleton and Thanks. Unfortunately, I did not get a good photo of my "bones in a bag" - another idea I found on Pinterest thanks to Tammy! Simply put small marshamallows on either end of small straight pretzels and dip in white chocolate (I used the wafer type that melt easily). I let them set on waxed paper and bags them up for party treats to take home.
Off to do my morning workout, then hopefully sneak in a bit of time in my craftroom before heading off to the Christmas Tea at our local community centre.
p.s. I promise to be back real soon - I seem to have located my long lost MOJO!!! Hooray!
