Haunted Mansion Halloween Party

I am hosting my first ever Halloween party this year, which is slightly surprising since it's one of my favorite holidays.  I love autumn--the crisp cool nights, the soups and cakes, and the lack of mosquitoes and sunburns.  This is the time of year when I begin to really bake, and of course, gain the weight that seems to pile on every year the older I get, and harder to come off.

Nevertheless, I keep doing it year after year.  Today I will be baking up "witch fingers" and some sort of cupcakes.  I was thinking of the "True Blood" cupcakes, but honestly, I don't want to stray from my haunted house theme.  Witch fingers kind of still work for that them, but I am lacking other ideas.  Nothing like waiting until the last minute to plan a menu, eh?  LOL

I actually have the savory part of the menu figured out, and that's not a problem.  I have the whole day Saturday to cook up a storm in my vintage apron from the 1950s.

Costumes you ask?  Well...that's another thing I need to do.  Dragging out the old sewing machine 3 days before the event is typical for me.  I tend to wait until the last minute to work my magick...

I'm going to be a ghost.  How hard is that anyway?  It seems only fitting for the hostess to be the ghost of her Haunted "Mansion" (and I say mansion with a chuckle as that's far from what I live in...).

Wish me luck here in the next few days and shoot me an email with ideas you might have.  I love hearing from you all!
