Well, it has come and gone yet again… our annual Halloween party was a blast! Here are some of the details to this year’s party:
Invitation was drawn by a local Savannah artist known as Grimcinder on Deviant Art:
Beer & Wine Labels were designed by Florida artist, Mike Maihack with Cowshell Graphics. He did an awesome job of incorporating the circus theme with a retro appeal that I was looking for:
Guests were greeted at the front door by old school circus music, a rat eating a clown nose, and a ‘You Must Be This Tall To Enter’ sign:
Once inside, the kitchen was converted into a Concession stand with the use of basic white sheets:
All the curtains andpillows in the house were changed out to circus themed stripes, clowns, stars, et cetera.
Once guests ventured outside, they were greeted with a directional sign instructing them of events:
Unfortunately the weather was a bit chilly for our fortune teller and very few fortunes were told, however the tent served as a warm place to hang out nonetheless:
Every year we show movies based on the theme in a makeshift outdoor theater. This year the theater was a striped big top tent showing Stephen King’s IT and a sad, old movie entitled ‘Dead Clowns’:
As always, throw blankets are supplied for warmth late at night.
Next step, the gypsy camp by the fire pit. We set up 5 tents complete with airbeds, bedding, pillows, lanterns, and more. Outside, there were laundry lines of circus attire, old chairs, musical instruments, and lights. This was by far my favorite place to hang out all night:
Finally, on the way out the door, guests were welcome to grab a bottle of wine to remember the event:
Oh, and I almost forgot. Here’s a pic of me and my husband dressed as a bloody marionette and evil ringmaster:
And now it is over, the house is back to normal, and here’s looking forward to next year’s Pirate conversion!
