Every year the last week of October is my favorite of the year, why? Because it is Halloween of course, our anniversary plus Matt’s Birthday! This year since the basement is finished I decided to invite Matt’s friends over for a Boo’s and Birthday party! Honestly I didn’t take but a couple of pictures because I was off being hostess but I wanted to share the few with you today!
I found most of the decor on Etsy and I loved how fun these vintage looking fans turned out in the kitchen!
I had 3 crockpots of chili going…. beef, chicken and vegan plus a “Chili Fixins Bar” with anything you could want to top your chili with!
I decorated the formal living room and set up the dessert bar in that room, chili in kitchen and drinks in basement to try and give the party a flow!
You guys, how good does our entryway ballon arch look? I got a make your own kit on Etsy and while I was cooking it was Matt’s job to get this set up… it turned out so good!!!!!!
I also thought that my garden would make a great cemetery and it did! I got a cheap little strobe light for it too… turned out so fun! Also throughout the house I made a Halloween playlist… with everything from Thriller to Murder Ink by Dr Dre!
I made a red wine and apple cider sangria that was a huge hit along with my first attempt at Jello shots and everyone seemed to love them! I didn’t try the shots but they were a hit and I was able to get the syringes on amazon!
Also on Etsy (god, I love Etsy… don’t you?) I had custom cups and koozies made for the party! The fun part is those cup are color changing so when a cold liquid goes inside they turn orange!
So I went as one of my favorite people… Freddie Mercury! This is the exact thing he wore to the Live Aid concert down to the shoes! I LOVED IT! And of course the playlist had Queen on it! (yup, I can’t wait for the movie this weekend)
Matt went as the Most Interesting Man in the world! He looks so handsome with grey hair!!!! Matt had a great time and everyone said it was a great party which makes me so happy!
Today is this mans actual Birthday, Happy 38 Matty!!!!!! LOVE YOU
