last week was like a career shift for me.. from Mommy blogger to an events organizer! hahahaha
Wednesday was Scout investiture… Thursday was UN Parade and school Halloween Party… and first born’s school party for his 9th birthday (yes, he do celebrate his birthdays not just once.. this year, we had 4 celebrations! one was when we went to Tagaytay and a Marites Crab treat at Claw Daddy.. second was his real birthday.. where he blew a small cake.. third was the school celebration and the fourth one was the Halloween party here at home)
The party turned out so good.. the kids had so much fun and enjoyed their loot bags (ay shucks I forgot to take a photo of the loot bags.. but it was a simple bag made out of black cartolina for the boys and orange for the girls).. I declared a candy war prior to his party.. so no candies on the loot bag.. just toys, stickers and some biscuits. We had Beyblade (not original no) and books and stickers as prizes for the games (trip to Jerusalem, Pinoy Henyo, Stop dance, disjointed hands eating contest and longest greetings)…
For our food, I prepared a few scary and “it’s so gross, I can’t eat it” kind of goodies:
The bloody glass, the used cotton buds and the mouth piece came from The Peach Kitchen… ah no.. she did not delivered those goodies or creepies here.. I got it from her blog.. from her collection of Halloween Recipe 🙂
The fingers and the worms and the mouse.. got it from the web (but gosh I can’t remember where!) Basically the chopped fingers were done using a wheat bread and some almonds.
The rats were done using cherries, kissed, almonds, melted chocolate and Nerds (for the eyes). Just dip the cherries to a melted chocolate (I use an ordinary milk chocolate, Goya, to be exact and the fact that it hardens easily adds character to the rat’s body). The kissed were used as the head, the almonds as ears and the red Nerds as eyes.. nobody ate it but me.. they were so grossed out by the idea of eating rat.. wahahahaha
The kids liked the used cotton buds the most.. they enjoyed it so much! The fingers, since no one wants it (yes even I couldn’t take it) were used in one of the games.. finger eating contest! The first one to finish a finger wins! hahahaha Tita Sam brought sinful cupcakes!
The decors? Monique’s back turned into a funky jack o lantern vampire! I also made a few rosettes (inspired by Ava’s party styling).. it’s so haaaard to do pala! amateur na amateur ang drama ng mga rositas ko! parang kinulang sa dilig na rosas wahaha.. a few DIY decors.. a black curtain with orange papers hanging on it.. and a few cobwebs.. and there goes our Halloween Party!
