This past weekend Mister Spooky and I hosted our Zombie Prom Halloween party and it was a great success! It was such fun planning it all out and making a bunch of decorations and recipes for the party! I am really glad we chose this theme because it gave our guests the opportunity to be creative with their costumes and it gave us the freedom to do some neat decorating!
I made a bunch of cool signs for the party and tons of yummy (and vegan) party noms! We transformed our apartment with streamers, balloons, room wrap, fringe curtains and lots of twinkly lights - and then made sure everything had a bit of blood splatter on it, tee hee!
Mister Spooky and I dressed as the Zombie Prom King and Queen. We got our duds from the thrift store and ripped/bloodied them up. I bought some cheap crowns from the costume store and I made our sashes. Our guests came up with some super-cool costumes and almost everyone stuck to the zombie theme! We had zombie Marilyn Monroe, teacher, janitor, coach, football player, cheerleader, schoolgirl and various zombies, plus a Doctor Doom and a warlock.
We dined on icky-looking but delicious tasting food, listened to groovy Halloween music, drank our infamous bloody punch (it is so yummy but so deadly!) and played games like horror character charades, zombie trivia and zombie darts! At the end of the night we handed out some awesome zombie-themed prizes.
Everyone had lots of fun and I am really pleased how everything turned out! You can take a looksie at the party pics below:

Welcome your undead class of Romero High 2012!
I took people's Polaroids when they arrived and they
picked randomly from a bowl to see what they were
voted as "Most Likely to..." just like in high school!
Here is a close-up
We're coming to get ya!

Hooray for successful Halloween parties! Looks like it was a blast and I love that everyone came in costumeReplyDelete
That looked like total fun!ReplyDelete
Fabulous job on your par-tay! I'm inspired to attempt to throw a party next year maybe... As a former zombie cheerleader (avatar) I have to say your friends makeup was killer!!ReplyDelete
where did you get the backdrop for photo boothReplyDelete
It's actually a lot of different layers combined - first I used a castle wall room wrap, then added a blood drip border on top. Then I added a red fringe curtain over the castle wall. The two zombie cutouts on either side I found at the Dollar Store. And I made the "Night to Dismember" banner - it is just letters printed out on parchment paper glued to black construction paper, then I splattered some red paint (for blood) over them, and threaded it all on some ribbon. :DDelete
Awesome looking party! Where did you put your photo booth? I want mine to be away from everything since I will need room lighting, but don't want to mess up the ambiance of the Halloween look in the rest of the house.ReplyDelete
We had it in a separate room that was pretty empty! Just used one of the walls to throw up a backdrop for it!Delete
