Mr. BFS and I hosted a Halloween Masquerade Ball and Potluck last Saturday. It was a fun success! Here are all of the photos you asked for when I mentioned this last week!
Masquerade Ball Costumes
Our Halloween parties are always costume-requested but not required. We want everyone to have a great time. Here were the costumes this year:
Here were the ladies of the group that were around for a photo earlier in the evening. As you can see, the masquerade ball theme was open for interpretation since only two of us went the ball-gown route. I love my friends.
Here were our early evening men of the group. Again, the masquerade theme was fun but everyone hit it from a different angle. Go geeks! And yes, that is a paper bag princess…
Here were our devil’s advocate and cop for the evening.
Here was the broken doll and sad panda.
I thought Dee did amazing with her broken doll look – face cracks and all!
The new plague-masks make me laugh more than anything else…
A party is only as good as the guests and food, right? Well, we weren’t going hungry:
We once again ordered two skeleton cupcake masterpieces from my mother-in-law – Veranda Delights.
Here were some jack-o-lantern cake balls! Vanilla cake, orange sugar, and chocolate faces.
These were our peanut-butter witches fingers, pumpkin patch cakes, and chocolate-dipped pretzels. Oh, and the Chex Mix Crack is in the top left.
These were as yummy as they looked. It is mini-bundt cakes joined together with homemade cream cheese icing and then decorated to look like mini-pumpkins.
Finally, a glimpse at some of the main food. There was tons – here you see Monster Salad, deviled eggs, and cornbread. We also had chili, jalapeno poppers, Spanish rice, cauliflower, and bunches of other dips, sides, etc.
Overall, people started showing up at 5:30pm and the party wrapped up around 2:30am. I consider that a total success.
What are you up to this Halloween?
