Halloween kids party 2013

First of all. The picture below, does not representing the snacks for the kids party. This is what I found at Lidl (thanks to Lesthi) and we snacked on during the weekend before (except dracula teeth). It's the first time I see Halloween themed food in a store here.

Every year I must do some kind of cupcakes. This years theme was based on bought cupcake set (wrapper, topper and bone sprinkles) bought at I used butter, blueberry puree, and icing sugar to make the frosting.

The smaller kids claims chocolate balls.
 I also baked simple but decorated cakes. The cutters are also bought at kakburken.

I use to do a typical american treat every year and try a new one. The first year I tried velvet cakepops with jack skellington faces and very few ate those (looks like brain, was the comment), last year I tried to serve caramel popcorn (I had to eat them myself, and loved it too, was the only one). This year I tried to serve Rice Crispie treats, Whats that?? strange, it doesnt taste anything, was some of the comments. A lot of them were left after the party. Children are soo picky about new stuff. Any suggestions of another treat I can try next year?

Soo, over to decorations. I told you in last post that we went to a flea market. This is floor candle holder is one of a pair that I bought. The candle is made of a card roll that transported one way mirror film home to us for one of the tricks.

 Store bought pumpkin garland, a black curtain and a home made boo-banner decorated the door way between entrance and kitchen.

 The old hallway had to store our sofa. 
The kitchen is quite simple and I reused lots of decorations. I don't want to use that common spiderweb as I hate to clean it off later.

Another garland, with bats.
The clock on the wall is fairly new. We have lived in this house for 5 years and never had a clock in the kitchen before. Visitors and family have ask about the time and nagged about me refusing to buy a clock until I find one I like. So this clock was nice enough to get a place in my kitchen. 

View to the stairwell. Witch painting is moved to this room and the only new stuff is the garland with red roses.

Here I am in my creepy clown costume. It looks like mad hatter in combo with the joker, not an intention, o well. The slit mouth make up did creep the young ones out though :). One of Oskars friends was dressed as the joker so we called each other cousins.

The cutest little girl on earth, Johans daughter Moa in her new bat ears and a little blood running from her mouth after a good bite of a human. 
Here are my boys dressed as zombie (refusing makeup) and a military.
So this is why all furnitures were moved from the livingroom. Crazy me, painted the walls black and covered ceiling and floor with black paperboard. Masks were painted in fluorescent colour and hung on the walls. Idea snatched from 102 wicked things to do.  After the arrival of all the kids. I dressed myself in complete black and hide in a corner with one of the masks on. Johan sent them in in small groups. It was successful and very satisfying when they screamed.

 But what scared them most was the gost story Johan told while all of them sat around the kitchen table, he accompanied the story with thunder and lightning (flashing lights from a cupboard) and eerie music. Unfortunately a friend that was supposed to make an entrance during the story was supposed to show up but couldnt because of severe back pain. One of the old kids said that it was a relief, it was scary enough.

More to come but thats all for now.

  1. Verkligen imponerad av allt, gillade verkligen din egen utstyrsel!
    Är bilden under den snygga klockan, en sån där bild som ändrar på sig ?
    dvs. en sådan här:

    KRAM, Jenny

    1. Japp det är det. Vi köpte 3 st på hobbex.

  2. I love the clock, it looks very old! I really like the alcoves/ cut outs you have in your walls, I would like something like that in my future house.

    Ha ha ha! Sounds scary! Poor kids being jumped out at! I helped a friend out at a school Market Day haunted house once, some of the kids tried to kick and punch us! I guess they didn't like being scared!

  3. This sounds like it was so much fun! Wish I could have been there! :-)

  4. It's all amazing, linnea-maria! I can't believe the kids didn't like the Rice Krispie treats, although I guess they're right - they don't have much taste. I'm glad you were able to find Hallowe'en themed food at a local store though. :o)

    You do make a creepy clown, but not too scary. I'm pretty sure I would have been one of the ones who screamed when I walked into the dark room though! That's an excellent idea!

    I think you were smart to wait until you found just the right clock. :o)

  5. Vilken underbar fest! Och massa gott du bakat :D
    Devils food cake är väl amerikanskt tror jag, du kanske ska prova den nästa år, namnet är ju ganska passande för en halloweenfest också ;)

  6. Oh, my...I don't know, what to say, or where to begin, your Halloween party was awesome, probably the most creative and fun I've seen or read about so far! The decoration is really atmospheric, I also prefer to have hints of decoration here and not the entire house messed up with things you can hardly scrape off the walls afterwards...And the cookies...I don't get those kids, everything you made looks totally cute and delicions! Right, I'm sceptinc about the caramel popcorn, just because I don't like caramel all that much, but kids are more picky, I guess. :)

    1. Ha ha, well I can't scrape off the black wallpaint. But I have decorated furnished the livingroom now and Johan loves it even more. I have to take some photos of our new gothic living room.

  7. Helt fantastiskt! Så många fina godsaker och dekorationer. Vilket roligt party det måste ha varit, väldigt inspirerande!

  8. Du är galen! Måla väggarna....:) Blev säkert bra även till vardags.

  9. Oh, everything looks fantastic! Food, decorations and party-goers! I adore your cupcakes and the bat garland!

    Happy Halloween! ❤

  10. What wonderful treats! Your party looked like such a blast! =}

  11. Oh my, everything looks so beautiful and yummy :D My congrats to the costumes and for the decorations!! I love the "floating" faces!! Lucky the people who attempt because the hostess surely has an amazing style!!! ^-^

  12. It must have been a wonderful party! Oh, I wish I could taste those things you baked :Q___ and what amazing decorations! Also, you were very pretty in your costume :).
