Grim Grinning Ghosts

So why aren't my Halloween decorations Disney's Haunted Mansion?
I finally remedied this and did a test run with my belated birthday party.

Ran into a few hiccups with the signature cocktail and dessert.
I found this Madame Leota recipe, but unfortunately there's no Viniq to be found anymore.
Luckily this recipe came to the rescue and I ended up making Madame Leotas with blue curacao, raspberry vodka, sweet & sour, grenadine, and cranberry juice.
These cookies also proved difficult. I found someone on Ebay who makes the cookie cutters, but I could only get 6 to release from the cutter.

A nice spread of finger foods.

All of the decor done with the help of my Silhouette and inspired by this artist

Found a great Madame Leota fabric on Spoonflower and made a dress which I hope to wear to Dapper Day.

 The highlight of the party was the green screen with backgrounds I swiped from here.

The other party activity was Escape From the Haunted Mansion which took many hours to build and cemented my decision to never become a paper model builder.

Post Party Post- Clue

I recently discovered that my brother still had our
1985 Clue VCR Mystery Game
So of course, I had to have a party!

I made a life sized Clue Suspect Card photo spot with changeable suspect name.
Some went with the traditional; some got creative.
The menu included as many colorful dishes as I could think up like Beet Salad, Hericots Vert, and Ratatouille.

We projected the video on the wall and everyone had personal notebooks to keep track of clues.
