    awww thank you for the encouragement. When I look at other members albums who have done this theme, their displays are so big and impressive. I'm just having a little house party with a lot of cheesy little props. I will have some life size figures though: a witch, the big bad wolf, a skelly knight, my Edwardian butler will be Pied Piper and I'll have a ghoul reading storytime to creeped out dolls. Other than that it's mainly just toy props and I'm not sure if I can make them scary enough.

    But I'm full steam ahead, I have all the planning done, I haven't actually done any work yet, but should be starting on the props next month. Will post pics as I go along.

    I decided on mini storybooks for the invitations, using some ideas and wording I found on the forum:

    SCARY TALES

    Once upon a time….

    in a land far, far away was the kingdom of Port Saint Lousy. And in this kingdom, hidden deep in the enchanted forest, was a magical candy cottage. Mother Goose and all the creatures of Fairy Tale land lived happily ever after in the charmed cottage.
    Until this year………………………

    An evil had crept into the kingdom that twisted and poisoned all that was good. The wicked witch, Escaldofa, had put a sinister spell on the cottage and on all those who dwelt within. Many had escaped into the disenchanted forest but Mother Goose and others remain captive in the bewitched cottage, doomed to live unhappily ever after.

    The only way to remove this vile curse is to have a lively gathering of deranged and demented souls more evil than the witch Escaldofa. A foul feast will take place on Saturday, October 27th at 8:00 in the evening at 111 Main Street. Disguises are required to avoid detection by the witch. Assist in saving Fairy Tale land by responding to 777-777-7777.


    Borrowing an idea from another member, I'll include a bloody white feather with the invitations since I'm going to be Mother Gross (Goose).

    Your ideas sound amazing...Im doing Scary Tales this year too...for my awards Im going to do fairy jars (like lightning bug jars) only mine have no air holes...so my fairies will be curled up at the bottom of the jar DEAD OF COARSE and I will add some moss, twigs and a little rust and dust so they look old....oh and blood on the jar walls as if she was trying to break the glass to get out. Here is a pic of the fairy Im going to try to reproduce...either that or Im going to use the $ store skellies and do the pantyhose and glue trick Name:  157414949445042352_e9Rp0nbT_b.jpg

    To make the one above Im going to try polimar clay but if all else fails Im going to do the $ store skellies...also on pinterest they show how to make skeletonized leaves so that could be cheap...this pic is similar to what I would do only I would use different leaves and I would add a torn little dress...I think it could look good especially if shes curled up insted of lying flat

    Hee...hee. Some of that sounds familiar. Steal away
    Our Twisted Fairy Tales party was one of our most memorable. I've got some pics on my profile, but wish I'd taken more. We were just having too much fun!
    Your party is going to be a blast---I think we should arrange to have all us Florida party-planners on different weekends so we can enjoy each others parties too

    guilty as charged. I use so many ideas that I find on the forum, I can't always remember the names to give due credit. But I do try to state that I got my idea from another forum member - eg "using some ideas and wording I found on the forum"...

    The costumes at your Twisted Fairy Tales party were great badgirl!! I hope my guests get into the theme and come dressed as characters.

    I need to make it to the west coast one of these times, I'll pick you up on the way and then we can head up to see kittyvibe.

    Thumbs up Great Ideas

    I am loving all of your ideas so far. I am doing a similar theme this year that is a twisted fairy tale ball... mostly based on Alice in Wonderland. I am new here but plan on posting a lot as the vision turns into reality.

    Welcome to the forum!! Many of the members here have done a fairy tale theme. If you do a search you'll find tons of ideas. Make sure to check out their albums too. Feel free to post any ideas you have - we all get inspiration from each other.

    Thanks for the welcome. I have been looking around the forum and found some great ideas especially in this post. I just started revising some props from last year and collecting supplies for the new builds and will definitely post photos as I progress. I am hoping with 6 months lead time I should have more than enough props and decorations to fill the house and the yard.
