One thing I like to do with my Halloween parties is to tie in the decor with my costume. So this party's color theme was black and orange, and the overall theme was "Witch Bat" to sound like "Which bat"... I had little bat decorations around the place. I don't think I told anyone the theme had a name, that's really just for me, but everything was orange and black so that part was obvious. I had stuff left over from a previous Halloween party, so that's why I went with the same colors again. I was trying to keep this party easy for me!I had just come back the day before from my Vegas trip so I wanted to keep the food and decorations really simple. I made these adorable pudding cup gravestones I saw on Pinterest (would totally make again!), and my favors were just some boxes I bought off of Oriental Trading and then I put candy in them.
For drinks, we made margaritas with some black rock candy sticks. I swear I want to use rock candy sticks all the time now. Such a simple way to add an extra oomph to a glass! It was kind of fun that the dye from the candy mixed with the orange punch and made a muddy color after stirring, so that is something to think about if you want to maintain a certain color scheme.
My husband BBQed some steaks, and Amanda made some yummy twice baked potatoes. I think we had a salad too? So there was real food at this party! Not just my sugar snack table.
Everyone seemed to have a good time, plenty of alcohol and dancing games. And people came in costume! And my husband was in costume, too! What. (John Cena if you couldn't figure it out. I think my husband just wanted to be able to wear his normal clothes. Such a cheater. Ha but the funny thing is that he doesn't like John Cena (the character), so he had to buy the shirt and accessories.

(Bob was... something made out of boxes? Both he and Shane didn't realize that everyone else was going to be in costume, so Shane got something out of my Halloween Costume box and Bob went through the recycling)
(And Katrina was Midnight I think!)
