Halloweening - My Very Own Halloween Party

Finally, after all that hard work, planning, creating, and decorating, the time had come to throw my Halloween dinner party :) And it was much needed as work was really bad last week so this came just in time :D

Everything was ready:

The buffet table for the aperitifs

The candy plate with lots of Halloween candy that I had bought over the last few weeks

Guacamoldy with Halloween Chips (recipe click here, courtesy of Martha Stewart)

Eyeballs (also idea by Martha Stewart, except that she froze them as ice cubes while I served them to eat and eaten they were!)

Gherkins and mini onions with prickers that I attempted. Sadly they didnt all survive the evening

Marshmallow Ghosts, I just didnt have time to paint faces on them anymore... Miraculously enough they werent all gone in the end!

More niblies on the coffee table with more pumpkins.

These trees were something I wanted to make for years. An idea from Family Fun and with the tiny pumpkins they really worked well. Check here how to make these, …

Halloweening - Pumpkins (the final 2!)

I made it just in time :) I spent all Saturday morning carving and I wanted to share the final two pumpkins with you quickly. I've done it, I have carved 10 pumpkins!

I loved this design with the hands, but I thought something was missing so I added the face also

For the last one I had a choice, either do the Darth Vader design I had printed out, or do a free-hand and save time. Obviously I did the free-hand hahaha... not too bad really, except that my bats never work out...

All is now done, the party pics will follow soon. Happy Halloween everyone!!

Halloweening - Pumpkins (3 more!)

Instead of finishing all 10 pumpkins before the party tomorrow, I have managed only 3. I was going to finish the other two tonight but here I am, happily blogging away... But I did want to share the three pumpkins I've done this week :)

Simple but classic, this will be the centre piece for the dinner table tomorrow so that everyone has a nice view and no one has to look at a plain side of the pumpkin. Plus the reflections it casts are cool :)

One of the last cool patterns I have left, I really like this one, very cheerful and Halloweeny :)

My beautiful spider pumpkin. The actual pattern was really tricky as it was tiny so I free-handed it larger. Worked out quite well actually although I did carve through one 'seam' that I shouldnt have but it's not too bad :)

See the webbing on the side?

Here you can see my tiny mistake. Really, next year I will get the Martha Stewart Carving Kit!

Now I must go to bed and have my beauty sleep for I have a dinner to prepare! And with that c…

Halloweening - Costumes - Corpse Bride

Three days without posts during Halloween??? OMG, you must have thought something had happened to me! LOL Nah, I was just super busy with work (in a really unfunny way) and in the evening I had to carve pumpkins because someone insisted to have 10 pumpkins for the party... Woops! But pics will follow of that later.

First of all, I have been featured!!! My first ever feature :) I am so proud! And feel so much better also of course hihi :) Check me out here where I am feature with my Sally Dress. Thanx Sunny for letting me know! *doing happy dance*

Now that thats done, do you remember the Leaf Dress? It was my master piece which was then turned into the Mombi Dress. However, all those dresses must have started somewhere right? Well, they did... the started with the Corpse Bride Dress. In 2005, during my dressy gothic days, I had a blue hair piece that I looooved to wear. Really, if I would have any choice in hair colour, it would be blue. I dont wear it anymore because it was really in b…
