Here are some photos documenting this year's party and details.

Please understand, these photos are TOTALLY out of order and a big jumbled mess. But hopefully you find something you can be inspired by! The whole scene changes AGAIN after the party, when I move props and scenes form inside the house and the backyard out to the front yard for our Halloween night trick or treaters!

More pics to come after 10/31

The invitation read something like this:

~Your Presence is Requested ~ BY INVITATION ONLY

You and your +1 are invited to Join us at the House of Usher Funeral Home as we mourn the loss of our dear friend, Ms. Lucy Westenra, who fell ill and eventually passed on to another life-form, after a blood-sucking creature entered her sleeping chamber one dreadful evening. Her mysterious transformation into a vampire has motivated her loved ones to hunt down her killer (who most likely will be in attendance as one of our many "savory" guests).

ALL who plan to pay their respects are implored to do so in their finest MOURNING ATTIRE (COSTUME). You'll be joined by some of the darkest souls of the Victorian era such as:

- Jack the Ripper and his Lady Victims (aka Courtesans,
Ladies of the Night)
- Sweeney Todd, Mrs. Lovett, or any characters from The Demon
Barber of Fleet Street
  • Count Dracula and the literary characters from the classic novel by Bram Stoker
  • Dracula's Brides
  • Edgar Allan Poe and his many literary characters
  • Dorian Gray (of the novel by Oscar Wilde)
  • Miss Havashim (of Charles Dickens' Great Expectations)
  • The Headless Horseman (of Sleepy Hollow)
  • Dr. Jeckyl and Mr. Hyde
  • Victorian "Ghosts"
  • Scotland Yard Police Inspectors
  • Ladies in Mourning
  • Grave Robbers
  • Pall Bearers
  • Characters inspired by the Netflix Series, Penny Dreadful

{Themed and non-themed}

* Victorian Parlor GAMES for those that wish to participate. *


* We will provide the embalming fluids (cocktail punch), and a non-alcoholic drink too, but please BYOB if there is something else you'd like to drink *

POE'S LAST STOP {21 and over section}:
Our "Ghost Hosts" will be serving you in the Edgar Allan Poe gated “bar/lounge area”, where basic mixers and barware will be provided. Please BYOB (your choice of alcohol) so that our friendly bartenders can mix your favorite "BOO"-ZY beverages for you.
