Halloween has never really been my favorite holiday. I enjoyed it as a child when we got to dress up and do parades at school, but going around to strangers houses scared the shit out of me! There were always a few people’s houses that we would visit where scary things happened. People would hide and scare you when you walked to the door. Creepy music would play. A hand would grab you when you went inside the bowl to get candy. I didn’t like it! As I got older, Halloween got lamer and lamer.
The last two years have been different. Chris has been asked to DJ at our friends HUGE annual Halloween Party. Each year there is usually some type of theme, and all the food and drinks are of course spook related. Last year there were glowing eye balls in mason jars with some type of alcohol concoction. Both years there have been glow in the dark jello shots and other fun drinks. There are mummy dogs and other spooky treats. It is amazing to see how much work the girls put in to this party leading up to the big day…even more amazing the clean up that has to take place after! There has to be about 10 pounds of glitter and confetti thrown throughout the house. I know I find it in my shoes and car for weeks just having been there!
Chris is usually set up in the old gym/ballet studio on the upper floor of this house. It has wooden floors and floor to ceiling mirrors. The windows are blacked out, and black lights replace the regular lights in there. There are usually huge glow in the dark spider webs and other décor in the room. The first year we went it was disco themed and there were disco balls. This years theme is The Nightmare Before Christmas. I cant wait to see how it all looks!
There is usually a karaoke lounge room on the first floor of the party, and a pool area outside. They mentioned that there would be fire dancers out by the pool this year…um…awesome!
Anyways, the first year I went as an angle and Chris was a doctor. He was prescribing the right kind of dance music all night! (See what I did there?!)
I am lame.
Last year I was a witch and Chris was a Star Trek character with Kanye West glasses. You can see the awesomeness in this picture!
And that my friends is how you throw a Halloween party! I cant wait to recap this years!
