Now that most of the fake cobwebs have been cleared, I wanted to recap our first Halloween at Content.
This silly holiday holds a special place in our hearts, because it was right around Halloween that John + I made our relationship "official". It was at my first (somewhat annual) Halloween party in 2008, hosted in a Hoboken bar, that John met my family and friends for the first time. Mind you, he was dressed as a gay construction worker that year, and even I would not have worn shorts that short... He made the Village People proud!
I also consider that first Halloween John's last opportunity to take notice of the crazy that results from any party I'm planning, and quickly run for the hills. But he didn't. Choosing instead to calm my self-inflicted anxiety with a trip to Central Park where we rode the carousel and visited the zoo.
Fast forward 7 years, and that adorable BF/GF couple is now husband and wife, and that dingy Hoboken bar has been replace with our loving, historic home.
What remains the same is Halloween. A holiday purely for fun and mischief.
This year I focused my party decor and planning around a 'witches house' theme; as opposed to 'murder scene', or 'abandoned drug den'. All were viable options in the beginning stages.
Here are a few highlights of this year's party!
Insect Bug Sugar Cookies
By far one of the EASIEST Halloween treats I’ve ever made! I saw a tutorial for "fossil cookies" on Pinterest way back when. I must not have actually pinned it, so I winged the details and here’s what I did.
