'Tis the Season....

...For Halloween parties!

With John feeling a bit under the weather, my friend Jen was my date for a wicked cool Willy Wonka Halloween party last night. The decorations and goodies were so FuN, I thought I'd share a few pics. :)

A huge Wonka bar on the wall...

Portraits of characters from the original movie, keeping watch over the martini station. The flavors? Vodka infused with either root beer barrels, swedish fish, or jolly ranchers...

A poster from the Tim Burton re-make...

Lollipops and candy buttons...

The buffet, with truffles on the conveyor belt, and assorted goodies below. My favorite was the phyllo cups with micro greens, blueberries and a white chocolate balsamic drizzle - sooooooo good...

Guests getting ready for a game of guessing classic childhood junk food while blindfolded...

Lickable wallpaper...

And last but not least, our hosts, Augustus Gloop and Willy Wonka...

It was altogether great fun, and I'm told these two are already planning a pirate themed party next year...Yo Ho Ho, hehe!

Next up is Jen's Day of the Dead party; bright colors, sangria and Mexican food - I can hardly wait! Stay tuned for photos...

In the meantime, look for new work here very soon! With the Christmas and Yule season fast approaching, I have lots of goodies planned. ;)

Until then, Happy Halloween!!
