halloween party

Nobody, but nobody puts on a Halloween party like my friends Sandra, Kim, Sophie and their husbands!

They plan, scheme, cook like fiends, decorate devilishly and dress up in creative, creepy costumes. And they out-do themselves time and time again.

This evening soiree was a sit-down “Witches Stew” for 30 ghosts and goblins.

Check out some of the evening’s characters, the grub and the dastardly decor…

The beatific Beetlejuice couple.

hand-some candles,

witchy beverages,

scullery cornbread,

wee folks with wee appetites,

potentially polluted popcorn,

and last year’s human sacrifice.


A hair-raising night fit for The Queen of Hearts, pirates, blind referees, performing Blues Brothers, undead Finnish sailors, football players, wanton witches and lots and lots of skeletons.


Oh, and me, Dale Evans, famous Halloween photographer and hubby George the Gangly Golfer. Not shown. We were hiding in fear.

Hope you conjured up a few goulish ideas for your party.

P.S. Have a scary safe evening!
