I’m super happy to be featuring an AMAZING (and creepy) real party that was done by the amazing Party Scribbles. And, Angela has offered to do a giveaway to her Etsy store as well. More on that tomorrow!
I typically am not a bloody Halloween type fan. But, this party is SO full of amazing details! Angela created an awesome Zombie-themed 40th birthday party. The party (and party package) would be a fabulous party for many different aged birthdays or an awesome Halloween shin-dig.
Here is what Angela said of the party: “They say life ends at 40, so for my 40th birthday I held a zombie end of the world party. (It’s a warm fuzzy feeling to know I have friends who will dress up as zombies in the middle of the summer for me.) Our theme was a safe house that had been over run with zombies. It was for adults and kids, so we tried to keep it from being too gory.”
Decor Details: “We used rolls of plastic sheeting (available at home improvement stores) to decorate the walls. I unrolled them outside and had the kids splatter paint and paint “bloody” handprints all over them with red paint. I also used unpainted plastic sheeting to cover furniture, as if the safehouse was over run by zombies and any survivors left in a hurry. It was the best party not to worry if things would be spilled on my couches! We also pushed furniture up against the windows and my husband built wood frames to put over them as if the windows had been boarded up, but really they just sat in the windowsill.”
The Food:Brain Matter (Guacamole), Grave Mud (Bean Dip), Bone Marrow (Turkey & Ham Wraps), Severed Toes (Prosciutto & Mozzarella), Flayed Skin (Salami Wontons), Teriyucky Eyeballs (Teriyaki Meatballs), Finger Bones (Pretzel sticks with dip), Brain Dip (Pesto Cheeseball), Veggies From Hershel’s Farm (Veggie Tray) and cupcakes
The Drinks: Spinal Fluid (Sprite) and Safe House Water
The Favors: “
I made labels for hand sanitizers, toxic sludge, mini candy bars and from Oriental Trading we found great squishy brains and growing brains.”
Thank you SO much to Angela for sharing this creative party with us! Check back tomorrow to see the giveaway that Angela and Party Scribbles are hosting for A Well Crafted Party fans!
