Witches Brew

I am very excited for Halloween! I normally decorate my apartment, carve pumpkins and throw on spooky music every now and then. But I realized that the BF and I are the only ones who get to enjoy any of this effort. So this year I'm throwing a Halloween bash for my high school girl friends and their other halves.

I've already started shopping for this event and have started to collect some pretty creepy accessories, but before I have the party planned and no guests I needed to figure out the invites.

My invites are NO Mrs. Limestone quality (hers are out of this world amazing BTW), but after lots of ideas I settled on something near and dear to my heart...witches! I thought about sending out boxes with fake severed fingers etc., but I decided to make them using materials I had at home already- we are in a recession. (this also leaves me with more money to spend on booze and at Goodwill for fun decorations)

Alright enough chatter here they are
Its a witches cauldron with some witches brew! (in case you couldn't tell)
pull out the brew and you have your invite
the envelopes are lined with spiderweb paper


Now that those are done and sent out my focus turns to decorations and making my apartment as spooky & creepy as possible.


Any suggestions from you Halloween pros out there?


Only 38 more days till Halloween....
