Party Rocking in the House Tonight!

Happy Halloween everyone! I'm anxiously awaiting trick or treaters, we've had three four so far, but this candy has...got...to...go!  Did you celebrate this weekend?  Despite the snow (ugh!) we rocked out Saturday night at MTV-themed Birthoween.  If the birthday boy's 3:30am bedtime is any indication of the night's success, I'd say we threw one heck of a party.

Jamie and I made a ton of themed food and drinks like bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed jalapenos known as Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jessica Simpson's "Is it Buffalo?" chicken dip and a cheese platter labeled Brievis and Butt Bread.  We created a fizzy, spiked punch dubbed Ron-Ron juice from the Jersey Shore concoction loved by his roommates.  We also found an inflatable cauldron cooler online that we entitled Carson Daly's cauldron of mystery that we filled with both trick and treat beverages.  Here were a few other treats, including my personal favorite, Jersey S'mores.

 


Jamie and I sported our best MTV-inspired attire, he as Butthead and I as Katy Perry from the California Girls video.  I wanted something very colorful and something I could DIY. My original Boy George costume was proving more difficult than it should have so Katy Perry it was.  This costume allowed me to go buck wild with my glue gun, a bag of rhinestones, felt, and dollar bin candy/ice cream/cupcake stickers. Plus, I really wanted to make a felt ice cream cone. What can I say? I'm a sucker for ice cream in all of its forms.

We wanted our MTV and our friends did not disappoint. Almost every single guest came in a hilarious and inspired look!  If I had to choose favorites, Divo, Ke$ha, L.M.F.AO, pregnant Beyonce, Hall and Oates and the other Katy Perry were mine. Great job everyone!

The chicken and braces/headgear combination was out of control funny! 
So did you celebrate over the weekend, did you hand out candy this evening or are you heading out to a party later?  Whatever you do, be safe and be spooky!

Haha! You and your friends look amazing! I love how you matched the food to the MTV theme. I think the Jersey S'mores are my favorite. The Last Friday Night Katy Perry is how I really looked in middle school.

Happy Birthoween!

HAHA Cara! That was an awesome party! Your Katy Perry Costume was FABULOUS! Love the candies and ice cream cone on it. You did a great job girl! Super fun!!! I love how you guys named the snacks. I couldn't stop laughing. You're so creative!!! I'm loving your friend Nate's Divo costume. It was awesome. Hope you gave out all the candy. I'm not finding as many trick-or-treaters anymore. They mainly go to private parties and events. Thanks for sharing your night and thank for your kind words. I'm feeling much better. ((HUG))
