Halloween birthday party!

 Jonathan turned 11 on October 27th. 
We had a Halloween themed party on Friday.
It was a lot of fun. I wish we could have a party every Halloween!
I did a lot of decorating for the party and my boy loved it.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I had a lot of fun doing this for my favorite little man.

I added streamer and warning tape to the doors and windows for a more "spooky" look.

I made the spiders out of balloons and streamer.
Even the giant one on the ceiling.

I grabbed a stick out of our wood pile for the witch's broom.

Plates, napkins, and cupcake tower from Target.
Tablecloth was from Target last year.

I placed some straws some straws in my Dundee marmalade crock.

 Close up of spider. 

Pin the tail on the cat and bob for apples!

Meet Boney Bill, he followed me home from Target.
The boys loved him and were dressed him up LOL
Behind Boney Bill on the sofa table I set up a guess how many candy corn game.

 Yummy cupcakes! 

I made peanut butter kiss cookies and instead of rolling them in white sugar, I rolled half of the cookies on orange sugar and the rest in black sugar.
They were delicious!!!

Here are a few of the boys standing around.
I wish I remembered to take pictures during the party but I was too busy.
I didn't even get pictures of the boy's costumes.
I LOVED the boy with the beards costume, he had a cardboard sign that said "will work for candy."
Homemade costumes are the best ever!!!

 Here are the boys carving their pumpkins.
One boy just destroyed his pumpkin....and then helped another destroy his.
The two on the end near Reagan took their time and made really great pumpkins.
Jonathan (middle) started his last and didn't get to finish his.

Another view of the decorations. 
I added more lights and 33 balloons. 11 of each color.
Plus more balloons on the floor.

I'm so glad my son had a great birthday.
He scored some great presents.
We got him an Ipod touch.
He said it was the best present ever!
That made our day. (I recorded him opening it for Justin to see)

Happy Birthday my sweet baby boy.
I love you so much!

Looks like a party any little boy would love!Your balloon spiders are great! I love homemade costumes too-it shows great imagination,instead of just buying something.

What a wonderful looking party! I remember having Halloween birthday parties when I was young too. Your decorations were great. I especially loved the spiders made with balloons and streamers. I like how you dressed up the food too. I have a 10 yr old son that got an Ipod touch last Spring for his birthday too. He said the same thing about how much he loved it. He uses it a lot! You will be glad to know that it was money well spent. Have a great Halloween tonight!

Hi Michele, Wow you did an over-the-top amazing job. Your son is lucky boy. I especially like the balloon spiders. I wanted to let you know that even though I am a follower I am not getting any posts. I think it might have something to do with being subscribed under your other blog. I hate to keep missing but am not sure how to fix it. :-(
