Halloween Lunch Party 10-29-11








Today was my annual Halloween lunch party with some of my very favorite girlfriends I used to work with from Batavia, IL. I provide the beverages and cookies and they bring the appetizers of their choice. Lots of fun, lots of eating and a great time! I love decorating for Halloween and these girls really appreciate the decorating and the cookies!
My theme this year was "Masquerade" so here are photos of some of my decorations and the cookies I made. Thanks to Sue, Jane, Kathie, Carol,  Joan and JoAnne for another fun time!

Collage Sisthars Group Sat 10-22-11






The Collage Sisthars group met on Saturday 10-22-11 and we worked on altered pumpkins. Lots of original and neat ideas, all of us using the foam pumpkins to alter. Here are some photos of the pumpkins and the artists working on them. A wonderful group and we all have a lot of fun learning and inspiring each other. We meet once a month on Saturday at The Fine Line in St Charles, IL  with a different collage idea each month.

Halloween Party Invitation

Here is the invitation I made for this year's Halloween Lunch. I have two lunch parties every year with the girls I used to work with. A Halloween lunch and a Spring lunch. Every year I do a theme, and this year's is "Masquerade".

I saved a lot of time by making the ruffle out of Martha Stewart cupcake liners. I just cut the edges off the liners and glued around the edges of the mask.
Happy Halloween! One of my favorites times of the year! My house is all decorated with the Halloween items I have collected over the years. Here is my latest collage "Haunted Couture" created from images from Vogue, Bazaar and various bits of this and that from my collage stash.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
