I think my friend Gina and I can finally relax and say with confindence
"A GREAT TIME WAS HAD BY ALL"
The party was amazing and all the hard work paid off.
Our friends and family could not
believe how it all came together.
To our friends...you are amazing...you really brought
your A game! The costumes were amazing and as promised
I will not post any of your pictures
I am going to just comment below each picture briefly as I think my brain
is done with Halloween and ready to move on to Christmas.
Some pictures are not that clear but I think you will understand the as you go along.

Front Entry by the moon light.
Last minute adjustments with
Gina and Janet.

Family Room pictures by daylight...
I made curtains to look old and tattered.
Can you see the moth man hidden in the webs on the ceiling?
Dining Room Scene shrouded by curtains.
Front Entry by night.
Amber lights were used throughout the house.
I just loved the glow of the fire...
Christmas Lights with colored tissue.
Kitchen all ready for guests.
Now onto my favorite part of the party...the garage transformation!
Yes, this is the garage...
We painted tarps or drop cloths to look like graveyard scenes.
The stumps came from my friend Mary's house...she is a true
pioneer, she used a chain saw to cut them all for us.
They acted as tables and chairs...notice the nice table cloths and
custom cushions for each stump...
All the tree brances we used came from her yard as well.
I don't know what we would have done
without the free material...the other choice was hay bales.
The transformation and development of this table in the garage is my favorite.
We used the square kitchen table and put a round glass coffee table on
top of the square.
It worked perfectly because the torso (which was purchase on Etsy and is a true work of art) was our signature piece. It fit the occasion and acted as inspiration for the garage.
This last picture is blurry but you get the effect of up lighting under the table
to cause everything to glow. It made me so happy to see it all come together.
The Accountant and I had a great time... I was
able to roller skate around the house and
serve food and beverages to all.
Can you guess what The Accountant was?
Bucket full of money!
Hannah was Vlad the Cookie Bunny from
Horton Hears a Who.
Maggie was a french maid...for two reasons.
She cleans up the floor for us but she also loves
to visit all the neighborhood dogs as well.
She is a tease.
Still trying to figure out the Accountant???
