But i do not think I like either one of them.... I have been thinking of Edgar Allen Poe's poem for invitations but I am not sure how to do so.... what do you guys think?? ANYONE?

I like the idea of putting the Poe twist to the invite. How about starting with a simple quote and then following up with the details for the party

example:
"Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."-Edgar Allan Poe
Enter the darkness with us on Halloween night, don't be scared, embrace the fright,etc etc

ex:
"The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins? "Edgar Allan Poe

ex:
"I have, indeed, no abhorrence of danger, except in its absolute effect - in terror."
Edgar Allan Poe
Then just follow up with your own little poem.

how about this?????

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I ponder, weak and weary, over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore, I came upon this invitation, from my books surcease of sorrow.

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, and dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. But the silence was unbroken, and the darkness gave no token.

I implore you, will you come to the Halloween Party on October 31st, 2009?

Okay...how about this:

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over this quaint and curious Halloween invitation some more,
I just wondered, really puzzled, what to have for party trappings,
As the inspiration moved me, I spread it all out on the floor.
‘Buckys, bones and FCG’s’, I muttered, ‘Webs and Spiders for my door –
All of this and much much more.’


This would look good on parchment and done with calligraphy. Followed up with the rest of your party info.

Try this for example-

A simple piece of parchment paper folded in half within an envelope. The outside of the paper is simply stamped with a raven. Inside the invite it reads the following:

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.
`'Tis some visitor,' I muttered, `tapping at my chamber door -
Only this, and nothing more.'

Date & time of party
Address
Further info
RSVP contact phone number

-------------------------------------------

Keeping things simple says volumes as well.

Put a nice picture on front with this poem....note I did change only a few words

As of some one gently rapping, rapping at my chamber door.

Only this, and nothing more.'


Then inside put will you be my visitor?
Date time address etc.
Or instead of "visitor" you can put "victim"
