A Dexter kind of Halloween

This past Saturday Nathan and I invited over all our friends for a Halloween get together!  I love entertaining and Halloween is so fun because you can just be silly and do things you normally wouldn't do....like dress up as a giant spoon and fork... or create a Dexter inspired Kill Room to freak out all your guests!  Thats exactly what we did and here are some pics to show you all our Halloween fun!

We roasted S'mores by the fire pit and made up an insanely stupid scary story.  Each person took a turn adding their own part of the story line, and needless to say, it got a little crazy!

I decorated the living room with cobwebs and a Happy Halloween banner in addition to my fall decor!

These were part of my menu!  I got this recipe from Pinterest and called them Italian Mummies!

Part of the Dexter Kill Room!

When Dexter kills people (bad people) He always takes pictures of the killers victims and post them around the room so the killer knows why he is being murdered.  So, I went on facebook and pulled random pictures of my party guests and printed up photos of them to hang around the room to add an extra spooky feel!

I didn't get very good pics because I was in a hurry, but These are amazing Spinach Bowls I pulled from Pinterest!

This is my favorite Punch Recipe, its Cheerwine and Pinapple Juice!  I also filled a latex glove with water and froze it for the ice block.  It turned out great looking, but I dont think I washed the glove good enough because as it melted, it made the punch taste pretty bad....like a plastic glove.. so I had to brew up another batch without the hand....

The Spread:  Spinach Bowls, Cheese n Crackers, Italian Mummies, Mummy Dawgs, Mexican Spider Dip, Sausage Balls, and S'mores!

You can see the TV on in the background, we found a movie on Netflix that just loops old horror movie trailers!  It was fun to watch all of them because they were pretty corny!

The Menu and tent cards are from Phyllis Hoffman Celebrate Magazine, you can see some of the free template designs Here!  I just downloaded them and edited the font in on Picnik! 

I cant believe I didnt get a pic of it, but our sweet friends Wendy and Daniel announced that they are expecting!   She had on a shirt that said Mommy and Baby and his shirt said Daddy!  So sad I didnt get a pic!

Did you do anything special for Halloween?  Do share!  :)
