I really wanted to have a special Halloween dinner for my kids, but I knew that this week was already going to be really hectic with school parties and Cub activities, plus the Church Halloween party on Saturday, and we have Stake Conference on Sunday, so basically the best day to do it was yesterday. And to add more excitement/work to my day I decided to invite the Missionary’s as well.
The bad part about that… well they white washed our area (which means they brought in 2 brand new Missionary’s) So I didn’t know either of them, and they didn’t know us, at all. I really didn’t want them to think I was some crazy person having them over for dinner to some elaborate spooky dinner party on a random Wednesday night, so I decided to scale back my ideas a bit, but still do some fun food and table decor.
For drinks I wanted a unique beverage, so we had Mountain Dew, and to make it extra fun I added a yellow glow stick to make it eerie and glow like toxic waste.
(A fun idea would be to put a toxic waste sticker to go on the front of the your glass beaker)
The other beverage was this awesome Goblin Juice I found at the grocery store… but it tasted awful. So we didn’t drink it. But it sure looked cute!
Black and white dishes with silver charger plates, black dinner napkins and vampire teeth for each guest.
Blood red Jell-O with gummy spiders and worms.
My favorite part of the whole table…
My skeleton salad servers. I just about DIED when I saw these in the store. So, so adorable!!
For dessert we had vampire cupcakes, complete with bloody teeth marks.
I hung some skeleton grim reapers in the back window.
And that’s about it. Nothing too fancy, but still fun for the kids and Mommy.
While all of this was going on, we had locked Grey into the living room to avoid any messes or destruction to the table… when I walked in and saw this…
He got to three of them before anyone noticed.
Then it was back to baby prison…
He was very excited about that as you can see.
