Spooky Birthday Party

October 25, 2010

My nephew turned two last week, so my Mom and Daughter and I flew out to Denver to help him celebrate. And of course his birthday party had a Halloween theme. I put together these gift bags for the toddlers attending the party. Inside were a sheet of spooky Halloween stickers and homemade Play-doh in orange and green. We followed this recipe and substituted food coloring for the kool-aid.

My sister went all out with the food. She made these fabulous bagel “mummies” with string cheese, pizza sauce and olives.

She also made Nutter Butter “ghosts” and “bones” breadsticks served with “blood” (marinara).

To celebrate the big day they ordered cupcakes from Happy Cake in Denver. The amazing flavors included Pumpkin, Peppermint Patty, Pear Gorgonzola, Black & White, Red Velvet and Chocolate Salted Caramel.

It was a great party, great food and the birthday boy loved, I mean LOVED his presents. Happy 2nd b-day K!

    Too bad I didn’t know your sister lived in Denver we could have met for coffee (when I lived there of course ;)) these food goodies are awesome, loving the bones and marinara sauce idea!

    Hi, thanks for the tip on the DSW coupons….I just did a google search and found three codes. Saving myself $25 on those boots. That’s exactly where I wanted to be in price. I’m curious to know how you like yours when you receive them. And I hope I’m not disappointed, because I hate returns.

    And what an adorable party!

    I wanted to share with you that this Hub Page poster used one of my images without consent and without link back. When I asked her to correct – she replaced my image (on her post) with your Nutter Butter image from this post. For you info – in case she did not ask your permission first.
