Meet the Sullivans: Halloween / Birthday / Come See Our Place Party

Halloween / Birthday / Come See Our Place Party

This Thursday October 28th is my birthday. Growing up I always had Halloween costume birthday parties. Every year I have celebrated the day in my adulthood I have avoided having any kind of Halloween themed party...until this year!

As you know, Keith and I recently moved, and we really want to show our place to all of our friends. We also thought with Halloween being Sunday and my birthday on Thursday, we could combine all three. It is going to be a laid back party (no costumes!) with about 10-15 people..but there is no reason we can't add some bits of Halloween here and there.

I've picked out a few fun and easy Halloween recipes and fun things:

Clockwise from top left: 
Caramelized Onion Cheese Spread -Keeping Up With the Joneses
Swamp Sangria -Martha Stewart
Mummy Dogs -Southern Living
Savory Pumpkin Puffs -Martha Stewart
Glittered Pumpkins -Martha Stewart

I'm going to be putting it all together on Saturday with the help of my sister. Seems easy enough, but I think I may have a lot on my plate! I still might add some sweets to the mix, so you'll just have to come back to see how it all turns out. 

An early Happy Halloween to you all! 

Update 10/31

We had the party last night and it was great! We have some awesome (and hilariously entertaining) friends so we really had the BEST time.  
You can't quite tell here, but I filled the pixie tea lights with candy corn.

Our beautiful pumpkins. Mickey trick-or-treating, the uncarvable Cinderella pumpkin and Keith's spooky ghost.

Of course I stopped taking pictures once everyone got here. I guess I was having too much fun!
