6 Days until Halloween! Party Planning Update

There are only 6 days until Halloween!!!
(5 days until my party–YIKES!)
The state of my dining room at the moment.
So, I’ll need to ask your forgiveness as I use the blog as a party planning space for my upcoming party. Any advice, ideas, comments or suggestions are welcome! 
Last week I put in a little update of how the planning was going but, I never put my inspiration up! 
So, below are some of the inspiration boards and drawings for this year’s Halloween!
Inspiration Board #1: Wonderland
I really wanted to have at least two separate spaces in the party. There are so many images that the books “Alice in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” bring to mind that I wanted to bring in as much as I could to the party space.I’ve decided to have the “Tea Party” in the middle of Wonderland’s enchanted forest area. I wanted pastels, flowers, butterflies and MAGIC.

Concept Drawings: Wonderland

First concept drawing of the table with moss runner and butterflies hanging from ceiling.
Up close drawing of the table where I hope to incorporate passages from the two books.
 Inspiration Board #2:The Queen of Hearts’ Kingdom

While I love all the colors and “otherworldliness” of Wonderland it is Halloween… so I wanted something a little more dark. The Queen of Hearts’ Kingdom will help serve that need for a little creepiness… I mean really “Off with their Head!”– totally creepy. So, the bar area of the party will serve as the Queen of Hearts’ Kingdom.

10 Days til Halloween! Party Planning Update

Yikes! There are only 10 days til Halloween!
(Nine if you are like me and having the party on Saturday, Oct. 30.)
So, as I am completely involved with my Halloween 2010 prep I thought I would just 
share some of the things I’ve gotten done up til now!
(My to do list might just make you cringe and I wouldn’t want that.)
Save the Dates
The save-the-dates were made to be EXTRA small.  We plan our party well in advance so I wanted to get these out as soon as I could. (Unfortunately, not everyone invited received one due to procrastination so most people got a social network invite.)
DIY Prep Party
Cutting out butterflies
Drawing Wonderland’s Characters
Creating a card castle
We threw a “prep party” a few weeks ago to get some of the more tedious projects finished. Some people made tissue flowers, other cut out and glued together butterflies, some drew characters from the book and others created a card castle. (My friends are AMAZING!)
Finished Card Castle


 The card castle will go in the bar area (in other words– the Red Queen’s area of the party). The finished projects was above and beyond my expectations and completely the results of me being friends with fabulously talented people. (Thanks Joan and Brandon)
Halloween Prep Area
(at the moment)
 
I have so much to do still!

DIY: Two fun uses for picture frames

I love re-purposing items to use in my parties. One of the items that I really like to use in my parties are PICTURE FRAMES! They come in all kinds of fabulous shapes and sizes and can be used in so many different ways. You can use tiny ones on tables to mark place settings or extremely large ones as props in your home photobooth.

So, I thought I’d bring a DIY project using these wonderful multi-use props. Read on to find TWO fun uses for picture frames.

Prepping Your Frame

First things first…you’ve got to prep your frame to work in your party vision. If you’ve already purchased a frame that works in your vision then fantastic… just skip this step. But, if you’re like me and don’t like to spend a TON of money on party projects then read on. I typically purchase frames at Goodwill or a dollar store. Other fun affordable frames can be found at places like Ikea or Target.

Painting your frame in a color that matches your party’s color scheme is the EASIEST way to make it work in your party. I typically grab a handy can of spray paint for this but, you can use acrylic paint or even Modge Podge it and dump glitter all over it.

Project #1: Framed Sign

This project is the easiest way to really bring attention to certain elements of your party. I like to make signs for all of the major areas of my parties: Bar, Dessert Buffet, Photo Booth… etc.

Tools: Prepped frame of any size… I really like using either 5X7 or 8X10 frames and a sign for the area of choice
Directions: Create signs (or, find some awesome FREE PRINTABLES on-line) and print! You could also hand stencil signs or use your calligraphy talents if you have them! Cut to a size that fits your chosen frame. Then, frame the sign and place in the selected area of your party. 
 
Project #2: Drink or Appetizer Tray
A fun way to put in a whimsical, special detail into a party is using everyday objects in surprising ways. Using a picture frame as a tray gives you the opportunity to personalize drink areas or make passed hors d’oeuvres extra special.

Tools: Prepped frame of at least 8X10 size or larger, fabric or decorative paper, any extra embellishments you might add (I’m using plastic spiders and rhinestones!), a glue if you are adding embellishments
Directions: Take your prepped frame and slide a decorative paper in the frame. Replace the back of the frame with cardboard OR tape down the prop tool on the back of the frame so that the back is completely flat. Add embellishments to frame in an eye catching way. Place frame on side tables, buffets or in your hands for drinks or hors d’oeuvres!

Weekend Update: My "Boo"ing Project

If you remember my last Friday Find post then you know that I planned on devoting part of my weekend to THIS project from TomKat Studio. I had so much fun creating them that I thought I’d update the blog with how the project went.

First off… we live in an apartment complex so we wanted to create inexpensive, yet still fun, “Boo” bags that could easily hang on the doorknob of our neighbors doors. We didn’t plan on knocking on the doors and running off (mainly because I could see myself getting to the stairs, tripping and then spending the evening in the hospital).

The Loot
We filled the bags with fun finds from the dollar store. 
I’m pretty happy with the goodies we found and hope the neighbors enjoy them!
 The Finished “Boo” Bags

I ran out of colored ink and REALLY wanted to finish this project today so I created my own “Boo” tags and printed them off in black and white. I really wanted to encourage my neighbors to create their own versions of the “Boo” signs so they don’t feel like they had to copy or download and print anything particular. I figured that the easier or more adaptable this 

project was the more likely other people would continue the fun by “Boo”ing others.
(The inspiration for this whole ordeal are the adorable FREE printables from TomKat.)

The “Boo” Sign

 I printed my sign on cardstock and dolled it up a bit with glitter, colored pencil, rhinestones and ribbon. For these simple black and white free printables just e-mail me at jenni[at]awellcraftedparty[dot]com. 


The Drop Off

My husband helped me drop off all the bags (yes, I was afraid they’d open the door. Wimp, I am.) Now we are waiting to see if they put the “Boo” signs up on their doors and continue the fun! I’m so excited!
**UPDATE**
Well, I couldn’t wait for my neighbors to get their treats…I knocked on their doors! (When I say “I” I really mean “my husband”.) I shouldn’t have attached the bag to the door handles because when one neighbor opened their door the thing crashed to the ground making everyone jump. Pretty sure no one saw who left the treats… but, I didn’t mean to scare my neighbor!

Friday Finds: Pre-Halloween FUN!

I’m devoting this entire Friday Find post 
(and part of my weekend) 
to this incredibly fun project
Have you been “Boo’d” yet this year?

I won’t tell you EVERYTHING about what it means to be Boo’d… (you’ll have to check out TomKat’s original post or Finding My Aloha’s instructional post). But, I will tell you that it looks like a TON of fun. Basically, it is a great way to show the holiday spirit around the neighborhood with little treats and tags that read, “You’ve Been Booed!” After being “Boo’d” a sign is posted on the door that reads, “I’ve Been Booed!” I can just a whole neighborhood really getting into this and having a blast. Find the ADORABLE “Booed” printables (with instructions) to download for FREE at TomKat’s website or by clicking HERE.

So, if you live in my neighborhood BEWARE…. 
you might just be Boo’d this weekend!
I must apologize for the use of “boo’d” and “booed” intermittently throughout the post. I can’t decide which is right and while my husband votes for “Booed” I prefer “Boo’d”. I guess they both work fine. :)

Real Party: Haunted Halloween Dinner Party

Some more Halloween Real Party love coming your way… :)
Haunted Halloween Dinner
A 5-course dinner party for 20 gruesome guests
 Guests received hand-delivered invitations to this Halloween Dinner.
The invitations were attached to black roses and covered in fake spider web.
The Menu was an array of delicious, and creepy, Fall foods.
Most of the recipes were inspired by some of Martha Stewart’s Halloween food creations. (See my recent post on Halloween Recipes for some of the links!)
Menu:
First course: Tomato and Red Pepper Soup with Mozzarella Eyeballs
Second Course: Green Salad served with Roasted Red Peppers and a Spider’s Egg
Third Course: Lamb Shanks with Mashed Potato Ghosts
Fourth Course: Decaying Cheese Plate
Fifth Course: Death By Chocolate (Recipe for this deliciously sinful dessert coming soon!)
Tablescape
Each place setting held a menu (with rhinestone studded spiders crawling on them),
a charger plate covered in spider web and a wine goblet with another rhinestone
studded spider. The table itself was covered in a tattered cheese cloth,
tons of spider web, glittery spiders and pumpkins.
Decorations
When planning this party I really wanted guests to walk into a
whole different world that what my small apartment typically looks like.
In order to help create the other worldly look we purchased flat decorative
paper and black gossamer (like they use at proms).
We also purchased SEVERAL hundred fake spiders from OrientalTrading.com and used them throughout the party. Some of the spiders we spray painted silver, some we doused in black glitter, some we attached rhinestones to their backs.
We spray painted and glittered several pumpkins and scattered them throughout the party. Fake spider web finished off our spooky setting.

Printables!

I love trolling the blogosphere for inspiration. 
But, what I really love!?! Free printables. 

Free printables get me excited for the next event that I can use them in. I’ve even created entire parties just so I can use the free printables that I’ve discovered. So, today is dedicated to free printable goodies. I’ve added a page on my blog solely devoted to these free goodies (check the button on the right or tab at the top of the page). More on that page later… for now I’d like to share some exciting printables from some of my FAVORITE blogs!

The TomKat Studio always has great inspiration… 
which, is probably why they just hit 10,000 FANS on Facebook.
In celebration of getting to 10,000 fans the TomKat Studio has added three free printables for cake bunting. The blog also has a fun tutorial from Sharnel Dollar Designs for how to put together the great bunting. So, congrats to TomKat Studio and thanks for the great new printable!

The Hostess with the Mostess was the first blog to REALLY grab my attention. It has such beautiful parties to inspire almost any event. Check out their many posts with free printables.
One of my FAVORITE free printables is their “Flowers and Candy” Centerpiece. It is adorable, whimsical and the perfect addition to a baby shower. 
How About Orange is a blog from a graphic and textile designer…
so, you can expect some pretty amazing free downloads.

This adorable free printable card featured on How About Orange is from Meg of Olliegraphic. Don’t you already have someone in mind that needs a good “Congrats!” card or a sweet message in the mail!
 For some seriously great inspiration check out Pizzazzerie.Com. The site has great real parties and tons of fun DIY projects. And, while there are currently some fun printables what I am REALLY looking forward to is the article “Halloween tables & Printables” that is listed under the “Coming Soon” area of the website.

Want to go ahead and get started with free printable awesomeness? Currently Pizzazzerie has a link to Gwynn Wasson Designs free printable collection giveaway. Two awesome Halloween printable sets are ready to be e-mailed to you!

Weekend Reader’s Question: 
What kind of cocktail/drink/punch are you going to serve this year at your Halloween party?

Tutorial: More Tissue Paper Flowers

Yesterday’s tutorial was over a basic floral pom. Today I’m going to show you how to make the flowers that look similar to colored carnations. I’m sure I found a tutorial at some point to make these flowers but it has been years since I’ve seen it and I’m sure that it isn’t exactly the same as the directions below. I just want you all to know that while I love making these flowers and do them often I am not so brilliant as to have invented them!

Finished flower in use at a birthday cocktail party.
Supplies
Supplies: Tissue Paper, Pipe Cleaners (I like green because they look like stems), markers, a hold punch, a circular object to trace and scissors (not pictured).
Instructions

Step One: Trace the circular object with a marker or pen onto the top sheet of tissue paper. I had about 15 sheets stacked, but you can use as few as 8 sheets and still get the desired effect.
 Step Two: Cut traced circle out with scissors. Make sure you cut through each sheet of tissue paper.
Step Three: Fold circles in half and punch with hole punch as close to the edge as possible. This should leave the tissue paper looking similar to a button with two holes in the middle of the circle.
Step Four: Thread pipe cleaner through the two holes. Twist the small end of the pipe cleaner to the “stem” to secure the tissue paper.
Step Five: Color the edges of the tissue paper with colored marker by holding the tissue paper tightly and moving the edge of the marker against the edges of tissue paper.
Step Six: Crumple individual sheets of tissue paper towards the center of the flower. Try rotating the flower after each crumple so that the sheets of tissue paper do not get stuck together.


The final flower can be fluffed a bit to look more realistic. Make several of these adorable flowers in different colors and enjoy!

Tutorial: Tissue Paper Flowers

Tissue paper flowers are EVERYWHERE right now. Martha made them easy to make and now everyone is doing it. And, why not!? They are a fantastic and inexpensive way to help decorate a party. Make them small and put them in vases or make them large and hang them from the ceiling—any way you use them they always look fantastic.
I’m currently in the middle of creating a TON of tissue paper flowers in several different ways to use for this year’s Halloween event. So, I thought while in the process I’d share with you some tutorials on how to create easy tissue paper flowers for whatever event you are working on.

This tutorial is for a basic flower and is based on the Martha Stewart instructions (be sure to check out the tutorial on the Martha Stewart website… now that is a pro!).

Supplies
Tissue paper, floral wire and scissors are all you need to make these flowers. For the three inch buds that I am creating I have cut my tissue paper into 4X6 rectangles. I’ve found that 8 sheets of tissue paper make a nice, full flower for this size without the tissue paper being too thick to cut through. For larger flowers I’ve found that I need to use more paper to create a full flower.
Instructions
Step One— Fold the tissue paper (like you would a paper fan) by alternating the folds. Crease the folds as well as you can so that the paper will crimp like an accordion.

Step Two— Wrap a piece of floral wire around the center of the folded tissue paper. I’ve only used a small piece of wire for this project because I’m wiring all of my flowers together. But, I’d suggest at least 5 inches of wire for most projects.
Step Three— Round or point the edges of the tissue paper with scissors to create the petals of the flower. (I have rounded the edges for these flowers.)
Step Three—Fan out the two sides of the flower around the wire. 
Step Four—Start pulling up each layer of tissue paper towards the center of the flower. This can be tedious and you might tear the tissue paper a little at times… don’t worry, you probably won’t even notice when the flower is finished. After finishing one side of the flower continue to the opposite side until all layers of tissue paper have been pulled free of their folds.
The finished flower! Once the flower is finished you can add ribbon to it and use it as a napkin holder or add a stem and stick into a vase. 
Have fun making tissue paper flowers! Beware… making these once starts an addictive trend! All props to Martha for the easy instructions that I’ve been using for the past few years and several parties.  
Keep checking in on the blog (or, hey, just hit follow just up to the left there) for tutorials on different variations on tissue flowers that I’ll be posting over this week.
