Bewitching Garage Halloween Party!

OK- one cluttered garage, one hard working husband and wife team, their crafty friend, and 7 hours on Halloween day.   Mike cleaned out the bikes and boxes,  and went to get the food and candy.  In between all that, he pulled out his 4 wheeler, hooked up his trailer, put bales of hay on it and tricked it out with a serious collection of spooky Halloween lights.  In the meantime, Ellen got busy cleaning up the house for the party and I got busy in the garage.  I covered up all of the storage shelves by draping them with plastic tablecloths over them and swagging  lights and balloons.

The food tables are set and ready to go with creepy spider webbing, skulls, chains and pumpkins.

The appetizer table is wickedly adorned with skull trees, spider webs and candy.

Mike’s gun safe becomes a focal point for a witch and the ghost is actually a couple of boxes of  fireworks that I disguised as a ghost.  Ellen came up with the basketball head!

Mike and Ellen have a huge collection of Halloween lights and we used it everywhere…all but on the turkey feathers!

And lastly, the bar in the garage complete with bleeding candles and cockroaches.
