1st Annual Johnson Halloween Bash

This was sooo thrown together at the last minute. As in, the first guests showed up and the hubs and I still weren't in our costumes! Our friends almost had a stroke; they thought we were playing a joke on them and they would be the only ones in costume! Ha! As you'll see, I failed majorly in my role of photographer, only getting a few here and there. Mainly because most everyone stayed outside around the bonfire unless they were eating. But, the party itself was a huge success! We've already been informed that we're expected to do it again next year!

Some of the decorations on the front porch. Emma and I had a lot of fun with the glitter!

Our Mad Hatter friend won the best costume award. It's hard to tell in the picture but she went all out with the face paint. I think that's what put her over the edge; best costume was between her and our 70's friend sitting next to her.

The Mad Hatter and Alice (and Slash). This Mad Hatter won Funniest Costume. Without the jacket he had this porno vibe going with the vest and no shirt. He played that up quite and bit and come out as the winner.

The Mad Hatter's husband came as ketchup. It was hilarious to watch him walk around in this thing. Hubs won Scariest Costume. And not because of that hot mess of facial hair he's currently sporting. By this time he had already taken his zombie skeleton mask off.

Food table AFTER it had been attacked.

I snapped this real quick at the end of the night, Midnight or so. You can't see the dress, but I was a flapper. The pink hair was the highlight. :)

Despite my lack of preparation, everyone had a great time. And that's all that matters! But maybe I should start planning now for next year . . .

Your front porch looks so cute! One of these days, I'm going to do more than just set a naked pumpkin out there...

Your party looks like fun too! Have you made any more cake pops since my shower?
