A BOOO-TIFUL HALLOWEEN PARTY

 
 
 


Martha wants to invite you to her 2013 Halloween party.  It is going to be a Boo~tiful time. 
 
 


The bats are flying overhead to show you the way. 

 
She has a few of her silver pet spiders.  They won't bother you though...as long as you don't bother them.


The table is set with midnight black table cloth.  On top of that is a silver/glittered spider place mat.  A jet black plate is next and one of Martha's dear friends lent a hand and is holding the place cards so everyone knows where to sit.


Martha made little candy boxes to sit at each place sitting.  These were made with boxes purchased at The Dollar Tree.  A post about how they were made will be coming up in the next day or two.

These boxes were filled with Hershey Kisses.  The silver wrapped chocolate went perfectly with her theme colors.

As another little treat to take home, each guest gets a black/glitter bag filled with homemade Candy Corn/White Chocolate bark. 

 
In person you can't really see through the bags as much as the photograph make it seem. 

Martha is forever looking for a great deal.  While she was Michael's Craft store, months ago, she came across these bags in the clearance bin.  She got them for only 50 cents!  Not bad. 

The cute silver spider not only makes the bags look cute, but they can also be turned into a necklace by putting a chain or ribbon though it.  They were purchased on line from eBay. 

The candy corn bark was super easy to make.  Just get white chocolate, melt it and stir in candy corn.  Poor onto a parchment line cookie sheet and spread it thin.  Then sprinkle more candy can and let set. 

Once it is hardened just break up into smaller pieces, put in a bag and you are done.


Did you notice the sweet little coffins at each place setting?  These got blinged up a bit by putting some rhinestones on them and then filling them up with the best tasting bones.



Yes, you heard that right.  These bones taste great.  They are super easy to make, taste great and are perfect to go inside a coffin.

I'll do a post on how to make them shortly.



If you don't have little coffins to fill, they still look cute piled up in a dish. 


White Martha really didn't start out with the theme of spiders in mind, it seems like her little pets crawled in her ear and kept whispering "silver spiders, silver spiders" because they kept showing up everywhere. 

Even the glasses had a lovely silver spider web with a sparkly spider made out of rhinestones.  They were found at TJ Maxx. 

This photograph does not do these glasses justice.  They are very pretty in person and only cost $3.99 each.  What a bargain!

The last little item to point out is the silver skeletons.  They sat on top of the napkins.  These were from the Dollar Tree.  They were actually tied together as a garland.  But, when you cut them apart, spray paint them silver, they look so much prettier. 

Oh I almost forgot, a few little tomb stones that were also found at the Dollar Tree finished out the final touches.

I hope you enjoyed this years Halloween party.  It's time to get started on planning next years now.
