Tombstone Invitation

So I couldn't find the memory card adapter anywhere and finally had to break down and buy a new one. I found a wonderful price online and rushed to click the PayPal button without reading the fine print - the price was so wonderful because the store is in Japan!!! 7 - 14 days from order to receipt but the price was a whopping $1.16 or something equally ridiculous and since the shipping was free, i don't think I will worry too much about whether or not it ever makes it here. In the meantime, I found one on sale in WalMart. I did have to buy a new memory card to get the adapter and it cost a little more than $1, but it's in my hot little hands now and I have cards to share again, so all's well that ends well.

Since Halloween conveniently falls on a Saturday this year, I decided I was going to hold a Halloween dinner party. If anyone has any suggestions for something suitably spooky to serve, please share because I haven't thought that far in advance. I'm sure I'll come up with something but help is always appreciated! I am really looking forward to decorating the house and the table with some of my overlarge collection of Halloween goodies. We usually have plenty of little trick or treaters in my development, so I'm thinking we will munch on appetizers and hand out candy and then sit down to dinner. I'm excited already!

And lookee..... The Angel Company has this free template for the perfect invitation! You would think they made it just for me. I linked to the free download section because there are some other cute projects too - and free is always good!

Whoa... I love the invitation. I am going to download it.

Now for the menu. I know this seems to simple but what about Spaghetti and Meatballs. I saw black spaghetti when I was in Italy - not sure if we can get it here.

I am doing a dinner party too at our home on Halloween. We are serving chili and I am going to look on the internet for some spooky appetizers...

I love the invitation! I have tons of recipes that are more appropriate for a kids party, but I have seen a couple of magazines at the check out registers that have spooky food ideas. Also check out Martha Stewart's website!

Oh what a cute invitation!!! I was going to suggest spaghetti too but I see it's been suggested. We used to have different foods we had to feel blindfolded and spaghetti can really feel weird if you can't see it. But black spaghetti could be perfect! A good blood red sauce.... you get the idea!

This is a great template and could actually be used several ways. I can see lots of possibilities. Love the little star sprinkles coming out. Will check out your link. Thanks for providing it! Wonderful pictures of Savannah too!
