Real Party: Mad Tea Party Halloween Pt. 2

Part of the fun of a Halloween party is in the costumes…. and man did everyone go all out! You saw one of the costumes in a previous post. But, there are so much more!

A Mad Tea Party Pt. 2: Costumes
Halloween 2010 

March Hare and Alice

 I made a simple blue dress for the party and wrapped a black ribbon around it. I then bought a blond wig and my costume was complete! The March Hare costume was also DIY– check out the instructions on a previous post.  
 Lewis Carroll and The White Rabbit

  The White Rabbit costume was a lot of fun. She sewed fake flowers all over a beautiful jacket and skirt and then created bunny ears out of felt and attached to a small top hat. The final touches included face make up and an adorable little cotton tail!

Bunny Tails!

Cheshire Cat and Lewis Carroll

  
Playing Cards

 
I loved these costumes. It is hard to see how awesome they are right now… but, the couple wore tights with boxers and white shirts on top of them. The tights were in the colors of their suit and then they had playing cards strung around their necks and attached to gloves. Lastly, they attached the foam board playing cards with Velcro so that they were easily detached and reattached.


Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum


 This is actually just one guy who posed all night in two different ways so that we could Photoshop his twin in… loved it! He went shopping for EXTRA Large clothing that would work for his tweedle dee costume and wrapped his middle with foam before dressing for the day. 
He wore knickers and knee socks. 

 White Queen

Mad Hatter

Can you say FABULOUS!?! He went all out for this costume. A red velvet top hat, bright blue hair and he even took part of the hair to make those amazing eyebrows. 
He made his makeup look very Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonerland-esque. 
He even took an old pair of glasses and colored them with an orange marker!

The Knave and The Dodo

These costumes were both made by Natalie (the dodo). 
She told me how she made them so that I could pass the information on to you!

The Knave— All of the main Knave costume parts were made with paper. She used posterboard for the front of the card. Notice that she drew the “bottom” part of the Jack of Hearts and made the top of the costume look like the other side of the card! (Brilliant, right!) She cut the middle of the card and wrapped them around his arms and attached them back to the front of the card with tape. They made sleeves for him to put the card on easily. The hat she made of paper, drawing it to match the hat on the Jack. She cut the pieces of hair and curled them around a pencil to make curly hair. She added a feather and a paper axe to it to make it match the bottom of the card.

The Dodo— A hoody, petticoat, yellow tights, several feather boas and a papier-mache mask created this amazing costume. She bought a grey hoody at goodwill and found a short petticoat that she purchased for the base of the costume. She then stitched the boas onto the pieces while leaving some of the back of the petticoat showing to serve as the little white tail end of a dodo bird.
She found long nose mask that she built up with papier-mache and painted yellow. Lastly, she paired the outfit with yellow tights for the dodo’s legs and feet.

We’re All Mad Here!

Happy Halloween! Mad Tea Party: Costumes!

Happy Halloween!
I hope your holiday weekend is going well… ours certainly was a hit! We enjoyed a fabulous Mad Tea Party last night and a fun filled brunch with friends this morning. :) 
Tomorrow I’ll post the rest of the details from our Halloween party fun…
but, for today I thought I’d give you a small taste of the incredible costumes from the party.
 
My husband… The March Hare
 
 I made my husband’s costume this year to go along with the Alice in Wonderland theme.
As with most things I do… this was DIY. 
 
First we went to Goodwill and bought a ridiculous jacket, tie and vest. 
We added a very old pair of dress slacks and socks to the outfit. We also just chose a hat from his collection that he doesn’t wear very often (just in case I ruined it).
He wore one of his regular work shirts under it all (he must have been so hot in all of those layers!) 
After obtaining the items all we had to do is buy 1/4 of a yard of fake fur from the local fabric store.
 
 
Using the fur I cut bunny ears out and sewed right sides together. I added in a bit of stuffing in both ears and a little bit of wire in the other ear to get it to stand straight up. I attached the ears to the hat with safety pins and a few stitches. I took small pieces of the fake fur and attached them on both the jacket and pants (as if they were worn so often that holes were made). I also made cuffs for the jacket.. I’m thinking we’ll have to have him use it again and go as the Teen Wolf!
 
I then sewed the fake fur onto socks to make them look like little bunny feet. We weren’t leaving the house so he was happy to not need to wear shoes. Lastly, I used the rest of the fake fur to create a tail for the Hare. I hot glued the fur onto an old name tag and we pinned it on his tail end. 
It really made the outfit!
 
The finishing touches included a latex nose, face paint and whiskers.
We attached the latex nose and broom bristles (the whiskers) to his face with spirit gum.
Me, as Alice, and my March Hare

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
View of the table with a moss table runner.
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)

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.

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

Friday Finds: Halloween Recipes

Halloween is the perfect time of year to have some fun in the kitchen. Today’s “Friday Find” are silly, creative, and spooky dishes that can wow your guests or family this Halloween season.

Party Food
Appetizers and other finger food are an easy way to bring some Halloween fun to a party. Make guests wonder exactly what it is they are eating with these fun, and delicious party-perfect treats.

Sources from top left clockwise:
  • Spicy Bat Wings“— Martha Stewart’s Halloween spin on chicken wings (made these last Halloween and LOVED them)
  • Cured Epiduris“— A creepy head-turner for the antipasto platter
  • Moldy Cheese Balls“— These delicious cheese balls will make any guest wonder about trying that cheese in the back of their fridge.
  • Adam’s Ribs“— More “heart”y party fare with a macabre twist
  • Eyeball Assortment“— An array of Italian Eyeballs to make guests wonder if someone saw them take 2
  • Rest in Peas“— Guests won’t be able to keep quiet after visiting this graveyard of toast tombstones and delightful pea dip
A Haunted Dinner
 Send the kiddos out for trick-or-treating with a tasty Halloween meal in their bellies or treat your friends to a haunted Halloween Dinner.

 Sources from top left clockwise:
  • Cauldron Curry” — I can’t say it better than Martha’s website, “You can almost hear the witch chant, ‘Breast of chicken and chile’s fury — with fresh green veg make good Thai curry!'” 
  • Mashed Boo-tatoes“—Give a nod to Halloween with these adorable ghost potatoes. (TIP: I made these two years ago and found that you should let the potatoes cool before piping into ghost form and then zap in the microwave for a few seconds before serving. Do not heat for too long as it will melt the form.)
  • Eye-Popping Soup“— Warm their bellies with this creepy tomato soup
  • Ghastly Ghoulash“— Halloween dinner doesn’t have to be blatantly spooky. This ghoulash would be the perfect addition to a Victorian Ghoul Dinner Party
  • Yummy Mummies“— Halloween Dinner on a Stick from BHG!

Sweet Treats
Now, it just wouldn’t be Halloween without something sweet to eat. Move beyond the traditional candies for your party guests with these treats.

  Sources from top left clockwise:
  • Brian Cupcakes“— You are what you eat!?! See if you grow smarter after a taste of “Albert Brainstien’s” brain!
  • Terrifying Tarantulas“— These eight-legged creatures mean you no harm, but will give guests a jump in alarm! (sorry for the rhyme… I just couldn’t resist!)
  • Boo-tiful Cake“— A whole family of friendly ghosts convene for slice of this tasty cake.
  • Boston Scream Pie“— Who can resist a Boston Creme Pie with this presentation?
  • Ladie’s Fingers“— A cookie treat that look’s like it’s name!
  • Poison Apples“— Keep Snow White away and save me one of these tasty dipped apples!
  • White Chocolate Ghosts“— A seriously easy Halloween treat from Martha Stewart that is great to bring to co-workers around the holiday. (I make these every year and everyone loves them!)
 Bizarre Breakfast

Halloween falls on a Sunday this year which most likely means that most festivities will be held on either the Friday or Saturday before the day. But, it doesn’t mean you can’t continue the celebrations! Below are some items that will make for a very interesting breakfast (or, in my case, brunch).

 Sources from top left clockwise:

  • “Hash Brains”— Rachael Ray’s website brings us this very fun and creepy potato side
  • “Egg Eyes”— Feeling a little haggard the day after the big party? These “blood shot” eyes can mirror your own and bring you back from the living dead.
  • “Buried Alive Muffins”— No time for a sit down breakfast? Prep these creepy muffins the night before and leave on the morning table for a little shock on Halloween day.
  • Spooky Side Up“— A full serving of crazy Halloween fun

Weekend Reader’s Question: What food do you serve every Halloween? Or, what foods are you looking forward to trying this year?

Halloween Invitations

Okay all– there are only 35 days left until Halloween! 

Less if you are like me and are having the Halloween events on the Saturday night before the holiday. With the holiday in mind I am going to now start focusing most of my blog posts on all things Halloween. I have two Real Parties I plan on sharing with you and a ton of do-it-yourself posts coming in preparation for my 2010 party. I also want to focus on spooktacular drinks and eats throughout these 35 days.

For me, all of my parties really begin with the invitation. As soon as an idea evolves I am busy working on what type of invitation will really SET THE TONE for the entire event. Today’s post I am featuring some great invitations that can be found on-line or at local stores, you can do yourself and a couple of invites I’ve done in the past for this holiday. Let me know your favorite invite, invites you’ve seen that I might have missed, or what you plan on doing for your Halloween party invite!

Friday Finds: Halloween Adult Costume Inspiration

It is that time of year again when all I can think about is Halloween! I plan my Halloween party themes nearly a year in advance, but I really dig down and start the party planning in September. So, I thought that today’s “Friday Finds” would be all about Halloween Costume Inspiration. Check the blog out every Friday from now til Halloween for more Halloween Finds!

Adult Costumes to Make
 One of the best parts of Halloween, for me, is dressing up in costume. It is the perfect opportunity to bring in some creativity and fun. I prefer to make my own costumes (as much as possible). Below are some examples of costumes that could easily be made and worn to a fun Halloween cocktail party.



Martha has FABULOUS inspiration over at her site! 
These four images are all from her Favorite Costume Ideas Photo Gallery

These would be great for a Halloween cocktail party or ball….couldn’t you just swoon over entering a a ball in a fabulous orange ball gown and the Madam Butterfly costume? 

Martha inspired my costume a couple of years ago when I found the Medusa How-To on her site. Below is an inspiration to reality board showing my interpretation of the Medusa Hair-Do. (I have to say that it would have been nice to have a stylist to do this one instead of doing it by myself!)


 Adult Costumes to Buy
Don’t have the time to create a hand-made costume but, you don’t want a cheap Halloween Store creation? The solution to all our costume needs lies in an Etsy shop somewhere! 
Thankfully Etsy has made it extremely easy to find what you are looking for with their search engines and treasuries. One of my favorite Halloween themed treasuries has to be the Fairy Treasury featuring some amazing finds for a great Fairy costume.
Below is an Esty costume inspiration board and links to these awesome finds.
 From Top Left Clockwise: Queen of Hearts Leather Mask from Tom Banwell, “Funshine Bear” from Bang Bang Crash, “Mrs. Peacock” Dress from Veronica Reis, Hedgehog from Bang Bang Crash, and Natural Woods Crown from Which Goose
 
 Well, I hope you enjoyed this weeks Friday Finds and that you have a fantastic weekend! Keep checking back for more Halloween Inspiration and Real Parties. 
WEEKEND READER QUESTION: What are you planning on dressing up as for this year’s Halloween and how are you going to create that costume?

Snapshots: Howloween at the Oregon Zoo

Oregon Zoo at Halloween // A Well Crafted Party

Oregon Zoo at Halloween // A Well Crafted Party

 

Halloween at the Oregon Zoo is “Howloween”

You thought I spelled it wrong in the title, didn’t you? “How”loween was the Oregon Zoo’s costumed, Halloween themed educational scavenger hunt. We visited different areas of the zoo to learn about many of the animals and get stickers and treats! Kiddo dressed as a crab and had a lot of fun roaming the zoo as one of the animals!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to bring my little guy, my visiting mom, and husband to participate in Howloween at the Zoo. The educational scavenger hunt was fun for the kid and kept us moving along throughout the zoo. It is no secret that I’m a fan of the Oregon Zoo. So, I won’t wax poetic.

I will say that it gets my vote as a fabulous way to spend the day with the family. I’d highly suggest renting one of their strollers if you have a little one. It saved us from having to schlep our stroller in and out, the kid thought it was fun, and it made the whole experience much better than the times we’ve gone and tried to walk around with a toddler.

Did you miss out on Howloween? Well, here is some more zoo fun:

Trick or Meat: See an Amur tiger get fed pumpkins at 10:31 AM on 10/31!

Zooliner: The Zooliner is BACK! Well, almost… the Zoo just announced that the Zooliner Locomotive is “on track” to be ready to be back in November. I’m excited that it will be back just in time for Zoo Lights!

Free Printable Vampire Portraits

Free Vampire Portraits from A Well Crafted Party

It is almost Halloween… can you believe it? I’ve been prepping for our annual Halloween party and have been so swamped with preparations that I haven’t really had the opportunity to sit down in front of my computer for any extended period of time. If you are feeling just as swamped as I am then you might need a few last minute Halloween decoration ideas! Hey, you may even appreciate getting some for free.

Using vintage images, I created a few Vampire Portraits that you can print off and put in frames around your home. How do I know what a vampire looks like in a portrait? Well that is easy! Vampires don’t show up in mirrors or film of course. These vampires sit in front of the camera to produce eery images of people without descernable bodies.
