{Addison's 10th Birthday: A Witches Ball}

With Addison's birthday at the end of October...it's surprising that we have never done a Halloween theme.  She wanted to be a witch this year, so we decided to take advantage of the Halloween decor already up in the house and host a 'Witches Ball' birthday party.  We had so much fun with this one!  

We found her hat at a boutique shop ...and the witch 'dress' from goodwill.  Turned out perfectly!  

Always a few yummy treats!  These ghosts are just brownie bites piped with Cool Whip topping and candy eyes.  

 Spider 'eggs'. 

Caramel apples are a must!

This was faux cake that my friend let me borrow for the display. She used it for a Halloween photoshoot the week prior. It looks fabulous!!  

Loved setting up this gothic/spooky table with misc Halloween decor.  

 And can't have a witches ball without a cauldron and brew!  The dry ice punch was a huge hit!  

She has such a great group of friends!  

At 10 years old they entertain each other and I didn't need to provide more than a table for them to talk the night away...and a movie "Hocus Pocus".

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
