Halloween/Birthday Party

My little guy turned 4 over the weekend and he's not so little anymore. Boo hoo! I've been busy throwing a birthday/ halloween party for him.  He wanted a Captain America Party.  And then he wanted a shark party.  And then he wanted a spiderman party.  The kid can't make up his mind- so I did for him.  Captain America/ Halloween.  Goes perfectly together right?  First I had to get the house spookified:


Paper bats: easiest decoration ever.  We've had these for the last 2 years and have to add to them periodically.


Here's the party invite I ordered here:  She changed it with my info of course.
I bought some potion looking bottles at Hobby Lobby and filled them with halloween chocolate sixlets.  I opened about 100 tiny little bags to fill the jars.  And only ate about half.  go me!  I attached a tag that said "Witches Poo.  Eat if you dare"  Mmm.  Mmm.  Good!

The jar behind it is a slightly moldy cauliflower I was throwing out.  My husband carved it to make it look more brain like and added apple cider vinegar.  We lovingly named it A.B. Normal.  From the Young Frankenstein movie.

Here's a picture of our spread.  I decided yummy food was better than creepy looking nasty food.  I just named each thing a creepy name.  Like Road Kill Stew for Chili.  And Guacamoldy for the dip.  You get the idea.

Here's the happy birthday boy.  With his awesome red velvet cake made by my friend Megan.  He was thrilled and so were we!  She also made awesome halloween cupcakes as well that I sadly realized I didn't get a chance to take pictures of before they were devoured.  And they were devoured!  Chocolate chunk cupcakes do no sit around for long!  You get a glimpse of them in the picture above.  

My feet were so sore and I threw my back out, but it was all worth it.  The kids, the adults and I all had fun!
