Halloween Birthday Table

I recently invited 3 of my
ghoulfriends over to celebrate
one of our favorites birthday.
Griselda was celebrating her
2,040th birthday and we all know
how we gals take milestone birthdays 
like this one.  
Each place setting had a different
plate and wine glass to reflect each personality.

This was for Arbis to sit at.
She's quite the wicked one.
Always turning people into toads and such.
I choose this one for Eucalypta.
She tends to love 'em and leave 'em.
Dead that is.
 Arachne will sit here.
She's the eldest of the group at 3,125 years old
and going through "the change" if you know what I mean.
And here is where I will sit.
Mr. B will tell you that this is a pretty accurate
depiction of my hair in the morning.
Griselda wanted to take center stage.
She is small but mighty!
Once she took her place,
she set about the skulls of her many lovers
around her skirt.
She carries them with her as a, not so gentle,
reminder to not take her loving charms lightly.
Escaping from her skirt were her many pets. 
Griselda is quite the animal lover.
Snakes, spiders and mice being her favorites.

They were all over the table!
I say this with love Griselda, but please,
learn to control your pets!
 I made sure to have our groups 
favorite libation on hand.
None of us are getting any younger!
All the ghouls are always so impressed
with my skills at finding
deals to use on my tables.
They always kid me and say I must cast some black magic 
before I enter a store.
I just smile slyly and nod.
I served a light dinner of 
deviled egg eyeballs, finger sandwiches,
hot and spicy batwings, and earthworm alfredo.
Dessert was individual
Zombie cupcakes.

Oh we had such a wonderful time!
Reminiscing over the centuries 
that we have maintained such strong friendships.
Of course with this group of ghouls,
you sure don't want to say anything to make anyone of them mad!

Just when things were getting fun,
Griselda announced that she must take leave immediately!
Something about a spell gone terribly wrong.
One second later...
Poof! She was gone.

I know she'll be back at some point.
Not only did she leave her lovers skulls,
she left her pesky pets too!
You'll not find me cleaning up after them
anytime soon!

I always share my tables with

Ghastly Gathering

Mr. B and I invited a couple of our dear old ghoulish friends over for dinner last night.  
As I have mentioned before, Mr. B is a home brewer so we started with some libations he made especially for this dinner party.

 I wanted our guests to feel at home so I decorated with their taste in mind. 

Unfortunately, a few uninvited guests showed up but, after trapping some of them, our guests didn't seem to mind.  In fact, they mentioned how kind I was to offer them their favorite appetizers. 

I think I made some points by cooking up a recipe I had received many years ago from a deceased family member.  Nothing warms your bones quite like a Ghoulish Gumbo.  Our guests gobbled it right up and asked for more!

They were such a gracious couple.  They made quite a big deal of me having scarecrow teeth and bats eyes on the buffet for dessert. I made sure to give them the remainder to take home for a late night snack.

We had so much fun reminiscing about old times and even dusted off a couple of our old books to look through and laugh at past adventures. 

Sadly, the evening came to an end to soon.  Our guests had another engagement they had to attend to before dawn.  Something about visiting an old haunt.  They offered to host the next get together. They promised a frightening good time!
