I am going to try to do a Tim Burton movie theme this year for my Halloween party. I would love some photos and ideas of decorations, food, drinks, and invitations (wording, etc). I have re-watched most of his movies this week to get ideas and I have a page full of thoughts. Just thought I'd ask on here if anyone has anything unique or any past photos to share. Also opinions on my ideas so far. Thanks!
Here's what I have so far:
I am definitely thinking of the dead trees and spirals, as well as the black and white contrasting with bright colors that recur in his films... There will be plenty of gravestones with names like Betelgeuse, Emily (Corpse Bride), and just general gravestones. Lots of jack-o-lanterns, pumpkins and pumpkinhead scarecrow, and skeletons. Possibly a headless horseman... Definitely doing the trees with the different holiday doors on them. And I'd like to create a mural of the spiral hill for on my one wall. Artificial flowers spray painted black, crows, topiaries like in "Edward Scissorhands", and a clothesline with shoes hanging from it like in "Big Fish"
For food I am thinking of meat pies with fingers and roaches in them, setting up a tea party table like in Alice, cookies and cups with "Drink Me" and "Eat Me" written on them, and maybe scissorhands shish-kabobs, and a Corpse Bride wedding cake. And I'd like to get some dry ice this year to put in a cauldron of green punch, like Sally's soup cauldron. Along with some fake bottles that say "Worm's Wart", "Deadly Nightshade", and "Frog's Breath"
