So I’ve been on a little hiatus. Lots has happened, mom broke her wrist, two family members passed away and my family is now considering buying a home with my parents, gulp, or having them move into our home. So needless to say a bunch of stuff has been goin’ down.
My rambunctious daughter Mykel will be turning two on July 30th. My how time flies. I love that little girl more than words can even describe. She knows what she wants and when she wants it and no one can tell her otherwise. I respect her for that.
If you’ve read any of my previous posts you’d know that all my parties are themed. Since Mykel’s movie of choice, for the past year, has been Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas that clearly was a no brainer. I’m not sure what intrigues this (almost) two-year-old, not to mention my four year old, about Halloween, ghouls, goblins and witches, but it does. So on with the show…
The perfect colors for this bash were purple, orange and black. By no means typical two-year-old party colors. Tule, spider webs, Christmas trees, black crows, and 36 inch balloons were just some of the décor. Not to mention Santa hats, monster wreaths, streamers and sweet flower arrangements.
The Ghoulish Delights included pizza (her fave), gummy worms (Oggie Booggie worms), Zero’s kibble (yogurt and chocolate covered raisins – Thank you Pinterest!), Jack Skellington cupcakes – banana and chocolate with cream cheese frosting, various salads, Sally’s hair (Red Vine licorice), Sugarplum Pops, orange Slop (a family fave) and Slimy green punch.
Of course gifts were placed under the Christmas tree and we played the movie through out the party. A great time was had by all, especially the birthday girl! With some help from family and the assistance of my husband (to hang stuff) this party went off without a hitch! If that’s how the saying goes. :/
Hope you enjoy the pics! And as always please don’t hesitate to ask questions or use these ideas for your own shin dig and don’t forget to subscribe to my blog! You know you want toooooo.
