    They're not shoddy at all. They give the impression of an amateur embalmer's wares rather than a respectable professional mortician's. Perfect for the theme, I think.

    This is so exciting. Your mind is on fire! Creativity up the ying yang!!! I love your theme, and all your ideas so far. You cracked me up with the "gift casket"...I may need to borrow that idea. I love this, and must follow as you develop the party. Sounds fantastic.

    I like the look of those jars. It adds to the creepiness.

    2016 "Gothic Graveyard" at Spangler's Hollow
    Thanks guys!

    I worked on my goodwill vases that I turned into urns the other day.
    I bought the vases in hopes that I could find a lid of some sort for them.
    Well, I never did find an actual lid but I remembered that I have a candelabra
    That I purchased from HomeGoods on sale because it was missing a holder.
    So what I did was just unscrew the remaining holders and then hot glued them
    Onto each vase as a lid.

    And then I just painted them. I decided I wanted to use them as clues for our ghost
    Game so together the vases say "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, our dear Olivia rots
    Beneath Earth's crust." Olivia being the first name of the ghost. What I plan on doing
    Is in our Memorial book putting "Genesis" as a name, which will lead to a bible in our
    Funeral parlor which will be highlighted with the "ashes to ashes" passage which will
    Lead them to the urns which will be obscured somehow.

    Had a late night gust of inspiration. This wasn't even on my planned to do list but I made a sconce using a wood sign I had bought at Michaels and a skull form I had tucked away.

    I think I'm going to do the bathroom in skulls. Give it a really "crypt keeper" sort of vibe. Lots of spooky moss garland and fabric with skull and bone accent pieces. I'm also working on a mirror that I purchased at Marshalls on clearance. It's a gold, oval shaped mirror that's really ornate so I want to goth it up. That'll come a little later though.

    i think the labels look great! When something can easily be done perfectly, handmade stuff gains a spevial kind of charm!

    Purchased this podium from the At Home store the other day. I plan on using this in the foyer with our guestbook so people can sign their names to it as they enter. EDIT: not sure why the image us posted twice.
