Halloween Bash

in All Posts

Our Halloween party was a smashing success!  We started things off pretty early – most of our friends have kiddos – but there was a second wind around 10 PM, and I didn’t go to bed until 1 AM.  After two straight hours of karaoking.  My feet are killing me, I lost my voice, but somehow – somehow! – my house is now spotless.  Amazing.  That’s what I call a good party.


I was Cleopatra but didn’t have a headdress, so I just said I was Ancient Egyptian.  Hah.  Henry was my sacrificial cow.


The Husband was a Roman gladiator – his costume was great.  Although the breast plate made it extremely difficult to cuddle Henry when he woke up for a 10 PM bottle.  Winking smile


Our friends went out all for their costumes, too!  Here are just a few…


Lady Bug, Olive Oil and Sweet Pea, Honey Boo Boo, Cat Woman


A Game of Thrones White Walker, a conglomeration of Halloween costumes, a nerd, Cat Woman, and a Zombie


Nicole and Isaac won for best couple’s costume of the night.  They went as a tooth and the tooth fairy.  She made Isaac into a tooth by sewing together four pillows (I tried it on, it was pretty freaking comfortable to be surrounded by squishy pillows!).  She got the idea from this blog.


Best individual costume went to our friend Jon, who dressed as Clark Kent transforming into Superman – he wore an suit and you could see a Superman shirt underneath.  It was sweet – I wish I had snagged a a better picture!  Jon also rocked the karaoke machine for multiple songs, which was too funny.


All in all – a wonderful night. I want to host a big Halloween party every year!

      The only food that I ended up making were (boxed) cake and (boxed) cookies with jello shots. Everything else was provided by guests. Not very exciting. DailyGarnish.com just did a 1st birthday party and made some incredible good, check out her blog!

    Having a house party or attending one is the best way to do Halloween I think! It can get too crazy and crowded otherwise. Looks like yours was quite the success . And Henry as a cow – ridiculous. No words for that cuteness.

    I love seeing what people dress up as. Such good ideas! Looks like a super fun party!

  • Ellen @ Wannabe Health Nut October 28, 2012, 6:03 pm

    Awesome! I wonder how many people were Honey Boo Boo this year? I saw a disappointing number of Waldos roaming the streets of NYC last night. I was a bit disappointed—throwing on a striped shirt and glasses is a bit of a cop out!

  • Annette@FitnessPerks October 28, 2012, 7:04 pm

    FUN! I love the tooth/toothfairy idea. TOO cute!

  • Caroline October 28, 2012, 7:30 pm

    It sounds like you had a great party, and your costumes both looked great!

  • Katy October 28, 2012, 7:47 pm

    Aww too cute! Halloween parties are so much better when everyone participates and gets into the spirit. Glad you guys had fun and weren’t left with too much clean up!

  • Heidi October 28, 2012, 7:58 pm

    Great costume! I hosted a party last night was well and dressed up as Audry Hepburn!

  • Lauren October 28, 2012, 8:18 pm

    Ah, love the tooth fairy and tooth! 🙂 Looks like a blast! 🙂

  • Dion October 28, 2012, 8:42 pm

    Caitlin! So glad you invited me to your party– thanks for a fabulous time! Gotta love some Katy Perry and Honey Badger too. 🙂

    Is the “conglomeration of Halloween costumes” Dion Lim? I went to college with her, so random to see her show up on this blog. Small world!

    hilarious way to incorporate Henry’s costume into yours- love it. I didn’t host a Halloween party but I am hosting an election day party and wishing I had a karaoke machine (I do an amazing Montell Jordan ‘This is how we do it’)

  • Sam @ Better With Sprinkles October 28, 2012, 11:52 pm

    Henry makes an adorable cow! :-p

    And as a huge GoT fan, I’m hugely impressed with the White Walker costume – that’s so cool!

  • Julie October 29, 2012, 12:40 pm

    Sounds like such a good time!!

  • Amber K October 29, 2012, 1:44 pm

    Looks like a great time! Henry is so adorable as a little cow.

  • Michelle October 29, 2012, 4:19 pm

    Thanks for having us, we had a great time! And it was so nice to finally meet cute little Henry 🙂

  • Diana October 30, 2012, 2:03 pm
