Step 1: Invitations
my sister used a cricut paper/vinyl cutter for scrap booking & Making Awesome Invitations like the pic in the Intro ,it is a pop up style, for nephews first bday ( its in October, Always a Halloween Theme (AWESOME), since so close to the actual day !) .... so the coffin was the latest, and inside was a burnt scroll with with the Birthday info also contained dried moss and a skeleton some were dismembered in some kind of way , this year was a 5" Decorative Box ,when you remove the lid you get the details of invitation and a spooky scene . unfold in front of your eyes ooooooooooo ok not so scary , but it's Kool !and a fake Chest bomb so Real ,I scare myself sometimes !
Step 2: Decorations
so here we have the main table, and bottles pillaged from every one they know ,, there is a Temequila Bottle , patron tequila, Agavero Tequila wine bottles, beer bottles, ect they are filled with water with Highlighter Ink accented with black lights . they are wrapped in homemade labels ,Poisons / potions,vampire Blood , Eye of Newt Energy Drinks, zombie virus . and some were topped with a melted candle well melted during the night , some of the bottles tops are wrapped in twine or gauze.......under the table was a smoke machine not shown , and i rigged three tubes that came up to the middle of the bottles Looked Great ! but not on camera too washed out !
Step 3: More Decorations
all over ther were spider webs withe , black , Glow in the dark . A Giant Spider made from construction paper my sister found at Tall mouse , this roll lasted about five different birthdays the legs were twisted tight and taped , spider guts and the head were newspaper wrapped with construction paper and the face was free cut , there was thought of using as the pinata but it would have gotten ugly Quick !!
