Halloween Food

Well the wet weather in Brisbane has made me get into doing a few more bits and pieces for the party. I thought I would have a trial run with a snack that the kids will have on their desert table - Popcorn Pumpkin!

I was surprised, I thought that there would be a whole lot more fiddling about but it only took a matter of a minute and I have my little Popcorn Pumpkin.

I had cut out the orange crepe paper first by just tracing around a plate. I made a batch of popcorn (which my youngest processed to scoff!) I wrapped a large handful into cling wrap then wrapped the crepe paper around the popcorn bringing everything to the top. Finishing with Green Florist Tape to form the stork of the Pumpkin.

Chloe couldn't wait to rip it open to dig into the popcorn!

Easy Peasy! Will be a little job the morning of the party to ensure the popcorn is nice and fresh :)

I think these displayed beautifully will work a treat, might even make one or two into jack-o-lanterns...

The Invitations....

Most of you would know that I have been working on a little project over the last few months. So here I go with my first posting to my new Blog.

For the last 2 years Chloe has been asking if she could have a Halloween Themed Birthday Party and since she is born on the 28 th Oct, it seemed like a fun theme to run with, now that she is turning 6.

Well, the time has come to hand out these invitations so beautifully designed by Ness at Raspberry Creative ....

I am so wrapped with the end result, right down to the little diamonty on the Owl's little Witches hat. There are little hints of what the Party has in store and Ness took on board everything, Thanks so much!

The Party was NOT to be a gruesome affair but to be Fun and a great excuse for a Dress Up, I wanted to keep in mind that it is still a 6 yr old Girls Birthday Party so in contradiction to Halloween, it was to be Girly as well.

I was very fortunate to win an amazing competition winning prizes from Sharnel Dollar Designs , Ah -Tissue, Giggleberry and Details Details.

This definitatley got the ball rolling for what has become a little bit of an obsession!

I can't wait to share the photos of the party with you....the countdown is on :)
