Melva the Witch and Wizard Silvernose are very popular for spooky parties – and not just over Halloween… Following are some photos of some spooky parties and some ideas.
Big credit goes to Mum Marie, who made a fabulous menu for the kids (including home made witches finger biscuits), green jelly with snakes inside and bats of toothpicks, ordered an absolutely amazing professional cake, had fantastic decorations everywhere but also the whole family dressed up – which always adds extra sparkle to the atmosphere.
Another big credit goes to Mum Nancy who actually made purple sparkly witches capes for all her daughter’s guests, and bought all of them a special witches hat as well (that you could find from $2 stores) – you can bet the kids absolutely loved it and felt very lucky to be invited to this party!
Decorations for a Spooky Atmosphere:
- Dim the lights and fill the house with spooky decorations. A joke or novelty shop can provide you with many decorations such as fake skeletons, rubber bats and cobwebs.
- A fun way to make your own bats would be to use black balloons. You can cut out wings to tape to the sides and hang them from the ceiling.
Menu ideas to eat strange, gruesome and disgusting foods you can’t serve any other time.
- A blood red punch would be perfect for all the guests. You could surround the punch bowl with dry ice so it looks like a bubbling cauldron.
- Tomato soup makes great 'blood'
- Screaming ghostly biscuits. Take a packet of milk arrowroot biscuits. Cover with white icing, then make eyes out of smarties, and mouths out of halved jellybeans (black or red).
- Fairy floss could be cobwebs
- Spider lollies in green jelly
- Pin the Hat on the witch: variation of 'Pin the tail on the donkey'
- Ghost or witch Pinata
- Witch’s Brew
