We had an area of the back yard roped off for our 21 and over guests. I called it Poes Last Stop and it’s where we set up the bar and a lounge area. Had red lighting and lots of Poe quotes around.

insude the kitchen, I created our “Embalming Room” where severed heads and anatomical diagrams were on display. We also had a short circuit light behind the glass window/door which added a great effect.

Sorry these are all jumbled

if I can figure out how to
Post video that would be best.

But here’s the wording for our invitations so you can get an idea of what this theme was all about:

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

WHAT TO EXPECT:
* PRIZES FOR THE BEST COSTUMES! *

{Themed and non-themed}
* Victorian Parlor GAMES for those that wish to participate. *
DANCING to the sounds of DJ ENAMEL -Yeah, he's a dentist IRL


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.

* COSTUMES *

This is a costume party so please wear one! DUH!

SEE PHOTO GALLERY (in comments section) for inspiration, but feel free to let your imagination guide your spooky mourning ensemble.
