Coming Soon...

So I am having a Halloween party on Saturday, and prepping my house for this party has kept me VERY busy!  I invited EVERY SINGLE person that I work with...and I work in an office of 50 so people...and that is not to mention my friends.  Sooooo, I have been one busy lady! 

I just wanted to share some pics I took on my phone to show you what I have been up to, but I will post some additional pics and instructions on what I did later.  I hope you enjoy!

These are the invites that I gave out.  I had my friend Liz do the calligraphy for me, and I made all of those little plaster fingers.  I first bought a mold making kit to mold my own finger...but that was just a WASTE of I broke down and bought a candy making mold to make the casts from...

As you can see I painted some of the finger nails and some I left unpainted.  And I tied a little double-sided satin around the index finger to keep in line with my "don't forget" theme...

I bought 5" x 3" x 2" mailing boxes that I assembled, filled them with a mixture of Spanish mosses and laid the finger on top.  For the spiderweb background I simply printed the graphic on some vellum and I printed the actually invite portion on Stardream Opal paper from Paper-Source.

I will post a picture of how I packaged them a little later!

And here are just a couple pics of some of the decorations I have so far done in the house...more of these to come as well!

And what I am sure will be the highlight of the evening...THE BAR!!!
