OK boys and girls, there are only 156 days left until the big day.

I'd love to hear any and all ideas that you have for decor, food, drink, games, etc for my Vampire themed Halloween party. You guys are all so creative I can't wait to hear what you come up with.

Thanks in advance!!!

marsham: we did a e-mail video invite last year and it was fabulous...we're definitelt doing that again.

Warrant2000: I'm giving some serious thought to scene setters in the dungeon/stone pattern, and I actually pisked up some curatins in a dark maroon red in Walmart the other day...probably should've bought them. I absolutely LOVE the plasma bags idea, that's a definite! And will there be alcohol involved??? :rolleyes: H-E-double-hockey sticks yeah!! Already have a recipe for a red punch like drink that involves Tequila...hee hee.;) And there will most certainly be a coffin somewhere, maybe a photo op?

Meeps: That link was awesome!! What fun it would be if we could whisk each guest inside and do their makeup and fangs, huh? We have too big a crowd for a sit-down dinner, so usually do a finger foods buffet.

Voodoo: I look forward to seeing your ideas and would LOVE some recipes. Thanks!!

Thanks guys, you've given me a lot to think about. I appreciate your input so much.

Beware: I saw this decoration and thought it would be great, what's a vampire party without bats?? Bat Attack Ceiling Decoration - Hanging Decorations - Halloween Decorations - Halloween - Shop by Holiday - Party America

HP: that's a great idea, with a fruit tray for dipping, maybe chunks of pound cake or brownies. Awesome.

Winnie: Hello, old friend, good to see your name come up. Amazing link, they are adorable.

slaz: I've never watched True Blood, but I'll get season one from Netflix!

Voodoo: I have been a fan of Britta for many years, she is fabulous!! I have always thought the heart thing would be great, but messy. But this might be the year I try it. Bloody Marys...of course. And I could even make them by the pitcher. I've made those eyeballs with the radishes from Martha Stewart, I used them in Martinis, but they would go great in a Bloody Mary.

And understand, I LOVE Twilight, but this is not a Twilight party. The Twilight vamps are much too limited. What fun are vampires without fangs and blood? I mean, I didn't feel any real danger from the Twilight vamps (at least not the Cullens), and isn't the danger what is exciting and...well....stimulating about a classic vampire story? :eek: hee,hee!


Thanks for all the great ideas, guys!

So I've had a few more ideas, one of which was started by slaz suggesting True Blood. Well....I absolutely DEVOURED the first season on DVD and promptly called my cable company to hit me up with HBO before season two started!!! So...I have a three level townhouse, and usually decorate the basement level, as well as the first. How about if I make the basement the Vampire bar "Fangtasia" from True Blood??? Already have a blood-red sectional, keep the lights low and the decor red/black, with lots of club-type music. Then when everybody's...ahem...had a few...we'll break out the karaoke down there. There's also a big-screen TV to show Vampire movies on. Sound good??

Darn your hide, slaz....you started all this!!!!! LOL!

slaz...I love the idea about the LED light in the faucet, i could use that in the gueat bathroom!! Also I'll have to think about rigging up a "chandelier" in the middle of the ceiling in the vampire bar setting (there is no central light, just recessed lighting in that room)

Bean!!! how good to see you around...university over, is it?? Congratulations! I love the suggestion about prizes for vampire costumes, that's great.

Thanks to everyone for all your great ideas and suggestions!!!
