Book Club Halloween Party

Last night, my girlfriend Chelsea had her first annual Book Club Halloween party. The club itself, (Books, Booze, and Bitches), was started several months ago, and allowed all the ladies to get together and drink wine and discuss that month's book. I'm suspicious that there may have been more enjoying of wine than book discussion though. Anyhow, she loves to entertain, so this month's meeting turned into a Halloween get together.
The hostess with the mostest
As usual, there was a variety of snack foods, all too rich and delicious.


Black cat brownies. Those are York peppermint patties on top and inside the brownies. One of those, and my sweet tooth is gone for the rest of the month. Seriously, they have a richness that borders on ridiculous.


Here we have cupcakes with sprinkles, and minature brownie cupcakes dressed up like pumpkins. Ain't she crafty?


I apologize for the blurry photo, but I think I can blame it on the evil brew that lurks within the large glass container. By this time, I had tried a couple cups of the stuff, and was falling under it's awful spell. I think making a good punch is actually an art form. You want something delicious and easy to drink, but it also needs to have an air of danger as well. It shouldn't have so much alcohol in it to burn your throat with every glass, but there should be enough to let people know, "Hey, take it easy or you'll wake up with regrets in the morning". Also, it never hurts to have a large frozen brain floating in the middle of it.





Pizza snakes! If I had my way, this would be the only form of pizza I would eat. The one on top was an italian sausage snake, while the one on the bottom was regular cheese, and they were both delicious. The only problem is that they usually go way too fast, so you have to be quick to grab a piece or two before it disappears.


Mixed candy bowl! Okay, so Chelsea didn't actually make the candy, but damn that is a cauldron full of sweet death.  We have Candy Corn M&M's, Mellowcreme Pumpkins, and Brach's Candy Corn and Caramel Apple Candy Corn. There was still a lot of this left, so I guess that mean's I'll have to man up and start scarfing it down.


Of course there were decorations, though I only took pictures of what I considered the best.



I love these scary portraits, because nothing looks off about them unless you get up real close. They just look like some old timey family photos, then you walk to the left to grab some chips and, BAM! You're staring at the decaying corpse of creepy Uncle Albert.


Nothing like a cobweb and skull centerpiece to really bring a table together.




You can't really see much in the way of decorations in these two photos, but I think the lighting made our den look extra creepy.



Unfortunately for some, this was an invitation only event. We don't let just any ghouls in here. Go find your own party fellas.


This mummy has been hung up here for the past few Halloweens, and I still can't figure out if he's supposed to be scary, or scared. I'm shooting for the latter, personally.


Here's a group shot of some of the book club members. From left to right, there's Hunter Kari and Hunting "Accident" Kara, Witchy Chelsea, and Zombie Shannon.  Don't they look like a fun group?

It was a fun night, even if it is signalling the end of the Halloween season. Four more days and we'll be looking forward to turkeys and stuffing, Christmas trees, and even more turkey. Until next time, Trick or Treat!

NOOO! All the food is gone!
