Did you know that dry ice sublimates? In other words, vanishes? I bought some 2 days in advance, you know, thinking I was doing well with planning ahead. The store people kept in a plastic bag and then inside a paper bag and I took it home (with the windows close, which is also a safety hazard...but I wasn't going very far) and stuck it in my freezer right away. The morning of the party I go get the ice and it's gone! The bag is completely lightless and there are frozen fuzzy crystals everywhere. It disappeared! $4 wasted! I had no idea it would disappear in the freezer!!! Tyler laughed at me for not knowing. haha. So our witches brew was just root beer (thank you Emily!).
Handmade banner and ghosts in the background.
The cupcakes using this recipe. And some cupcake flags, of course!
Place markers found on someone this blog who got the idea from Martha. I was really excited about these. And the kids loved them too!
The food table. Notice no "brewing" action going on. And that is my son's sword. He thought it would be cool to add to the photo.
I wanted to make these but ran out of time....so we had them on Monday night instead. These little mummy men. And actually, I am learning that not a lot of kids actually like to eat these. At least, not in my family.
Ghost cookies (nutter butters covered in almond bark).
The decorated pumpkins. They had fun with this. 3D, washable, glittery Elmer's glue.
