Our 2008 "A-ca-dead-a-me Awards" Halloween Party

WE DID IT! We survived our annual Halloween Party! Whew! It was a doosie. All in all we had a fantastic time. It was LOTS of work, but totally worth it in the long run. We had a very nice turnout...including the people we had working the gaming tables, bartender, security at the door and kitchen, we had about 85 people here. Every guest came in a costume, and they were incredible! Such fantastic imaginations!


Rather than try to cram all of the pictures into one incredibly long blog, I'm going to spread it out over a couple of posts, and a couple of stages.

Tonight I'll share some of the decorations...since we couldn't find too many to fit our theme, we had to make a lot of the props ourselves. You just don't find things at "Party City" that fit into a Hollyweird / A-ca-dead-a-me Awards theme. Thank goodness we have an incredible group of friends that helps us come up with ideas, sets, construction, party prep, and cleanup. There is absolutely no way we could pull off these parties without their help. There aren't many people that you can count on like this group. Shirley, Ed, Lisa, Berenice, Dion, we'd be lost without you!!

OK, so here goes...the first of the pictures...

Wow Sue, that is amazing and what an imagination you have! I love the Die-rector! I am not surprised the doggies don't like the costumes, that clown freaked me out too!

I found your blog when I did a Blogger search for people who listed renaissance festivals as an interest. (I like to look at Ren photos and to get inspiration for my garb.) When I saw your Halloween party photos, I just had to comment. What a fantastic job! So much work, but I can imagine what a hit it had to have been. So creative!!
