enough for us ghostly gardeners! To be ghoulish, just dye anything
black! I always loved Morticiaís dress Ė but she always wore the
same one! I think you would have to diet for 2 years to fit into a
dress like that though! Top it off with a oh so long black wig and
youíll be all set. Instead of your regular face powder, use baby
powder for that ghostly glow. Very bewitching!
needs an out of date pinstripe suit and shirt and tie, and of course a
paste on moustache. If you want to be Uncle Fester, you better be
prepared to shave your head and don a monkís robe. But if you have
really long hair, it would be a cinch to be "Cousin It!"
But please donít attempt to be "Thing". I do not want to
be responsible for any decapitations.
decorations will be easyÖjust donít clean for several months prior to
the party. Not a difficult task for many of you, Iím sure!
Of course you can always go to the store and purchase "Cobwebs In A
Can." Black tablecloths
and bouquets of dead flowers and stems stems will enhance any
table. Float some red votive candles in a crystal bowl filled
with tomato for a "bowl of burning blood". Very romantic!
Want to make
some interesting serving glasses? Tint some corn syrup with some red
food coloring and dip the rim of your glasses in them and turn them
upright. The lovely red should drip down the sides of the glass to
resemble dripping blood. Bloody Margaritas are an appropriate
great selection of spooky Hallowe'en
sounds and music playing in the background. Add lots of plastic
bats, insects and chains, and bio-hazard goody bags to ensure that your
party will be a ghastly success.
to have some fun? Here are some guaranteed goosebumps directly from
Morticiaís party book! Youíve heard of bobbing for apples, havenít
you? Well letís
play "Bobbing For Skulls!" Ew - I know it sounds
gross but letís give it a try. A visit to the dime (dollar) store
would be in order to pick up some of those little plastic skulls.
Float the little beauties in a large punchbowl filled with Swamp
Punch or another punch of your choice.
boy this is making me hungry! Onto the food! We have oodles of
grisly delights in store for you! See the whole menu!
If you are not too full of punch after bobbing for skulls, how about
trying some "Brain Soup?"
Just add some green food coloring while itís cooking or try the same
thing with some chicken stock and dumplings Ė devilishious.
that doesnít tempt your taste
buds, try some delicious "Devilled
Eyeballs": hardboil some eggs and cut them in half
lengthwise. Scoop out the yolk. In the cavity, put some cream
cheese and top it off with an olive making sure the red pimento end is
sticking out to resemble the pupil.
If you want it bloodshot, take a toothpick and dip it into red food
coloring and squiggle in some lines. Sounds tasty,doesnít
it? Wash it down with Swamp Punch.
for the main course, what else but that deep, red food "Hungarian
Ghoulash!" Or, for a lighter fare, try "Fettucini
Afraido". For meat lovers, consider "Dreaded
Veal Cutlets." These are all frightfully good!
top it all off we present the epicurian
delight of the party, "Graveyard
Cake", and "Cup of
Worms", and "Candied
Spiders" for the kiddies. They're fiendishly bootiful
desserts. Ooooh, just thinking about this made me gain 5 pounds!
Kreepy and they're Kooky,
Mysterious and Spooky,
They're altogether Ooky,
The Addams Family.
They're house is
When people come to see 'em,
They really are a scream,
The Addams Family.
So get a witches
a broomstick you can crawl on,
We're gonna pay a call on
The Addams Family!
