Halloween Party Invite!

Got nothing better to do?


Then come to my country estate for a Halloween party!


You'll be warmly greeted at the door.
Probably hugged to death!


And you'll be welcomed inside the house too!


Help yourself to a beverage.


Yes, there will be nachos!


Keep your eyes peeled for
spaghetti and meatballs too.


And save room for cupcakes!


But please refrain from snacking
on any of the other guests.


And in deference to my guest Joan of Arc,
no BBQ will be served.


The costumes will largely be sweet and innocent,
like Rapunzel here in her tower,
who will let down her hair for you.


And what is more wholesome than
Peter Pan and his shadow?


However, some costumes may be a little risqué,
like Babe Lincoln's . . .


. . . although there will be no nudity, I promise!


But what the hell, come to the party anyway!

I would love to come, but I haven't got a thing to wear!

OH! You say that's no problem?

that country estate looks like some of the houses around mistress maddie's neighborhood.

Sure looks like fun.

That was fun! Oh, that baby Rapunzel!!! -Jenn

Boy, you don't mess around when it comes to Halloween. But -- no pumpkin spice?

Bob said...

Peter Pan and his Shadow is a great costume!

I'll skip the cupcakes though.

RO said...

OMG - these are so funny, and I really, really adore the little baby octopus! You find the best stuff! What will I be doing this weekend? Eating candy I shouldn't be, watching Netflix, catching up on administrative tasks and reading. No scary stuff for me at all! Hugs, RO

Frank said...

Be sure to pass around body parts in a dark room: peeled grapes (eyes), cooked cold spaghetti (use imagination) bones from the butcher (bones) chicken livers, etc. We used to do this when we were kids.

I love a good party....I'll come as temptation!!!!!!

Tasker Dunham said...

I didn't believe it till I checked - that book in the first picture really exists. It says: "these cats will feel like they're actually licking your face or nuzzling your ankles-so you'll have to stop yourself from trying to pet them! "

Marie Smith said...

We are going with our grandkids today to buy their Hallowe’en costumes. Should be fun. Wonder will we see any of these?

Tundra Bunny said...

Your Halloween bash looks like fun and the baby octopus and baby Rapunzel are too cute for words! BTW, I'm stealing your cupcake idea for my Halloween Tea...

^.^ said...

That was so much fun, friend D :) I'll send this post on to my son and dil as they always do Carnival, Octoberfest and Halloween stuff :) Love, cat.

Lady M said...

Love those costumes - Babe Lincoln, Rapunzel's Tower, Subway sandwich and those flashers are all brilliant.

DEZMOND said...

How long can we stay at your country estate?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ DEZMOND -- You can stay as long as you like or until I phone the police to evict you, whichever comes first!

e said...

What creative costumes! Rather than a costume, I will be dressed as witch - or as my real self, lol.

Your country estate looks lovely, m'dear!

Bea said...

I was chatting with a woman at the pool yesterday who once went to a party dressed as 'tan mom', if that moniker rings a bell.

SmitoniusAndSonata said...

I'm setting off now… might take a while to get there, though. Save me some cake.

Leanna said...

That last one is so damned good especially if you have a great body.

Brian Joseph said...

I love Halloween parties. The food looks good!

Kay G. said...

Baby Rapunzel is my absolute favorite with Peter Pan and his shadow coming a close second!

bobbie said...

You had me at "Babe Lincoln"!!!

Guillaume said...

Sounds like fun. We are going on a get-together this weekend, uni friends of my wife, but sadly they are Christian and thus don't celebrate Halloween.

Lisa said...

I'll be dressed as a pickle...

laurie said...

You’ve out done yourself! This was an amazing gathering, I love them all

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

THe Peter Pan!
The Peter Pan!

And I would totally go to any party you host!

XoXo

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Well I've already been to one like the last picture so I will just go to the regular kind. These were great Debra, lots of ideas to steal. ;)

jaz@octoberfarm said...

rapunzel is the best!

Joanne Noragon said...

You know a lot of great costume designers!

Old Lurker said...

Do you suppose the little one in photo #9 is an Irish baby?

Debra She Who Seeks said...

@ Old Lurker -- Mr. Swift, your satirical humour is LOL-worthy.

Parnassus said...

Hello Debra, I was having such fun sharing these that I almost forgot to comment! The Joan of Arc at the Stake has got to be the most clever of these, and of course I fell in love with all the baby ones!
--Jim

Adam said...

I always enjoy seeing the different costumes

Barbara said...

Those are outrageously funny. Love them.

DEZMOND said...

@Debs that would be two day tops then :)))

Moving with Mitchell said...

I don’t know where to begin. These are so good!!! You need to come to Fuengirola for our annual Halloween dinner at Meson Salvador!

Elsie Amata said...

These are great! I feel like I could make those cupcakes but when I try to frost them it would just turn out like schmears of pink blobs. No one would know it was supposed to be brains.

Martha said...

Some of these costumes are so much fun! I would love to attend a Halloween party. I've never been to one!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I love the subway baby!! So many cute costumes....I'd better get to work on mine. Thanks for the invite.

Mildred Ratched said...

Thanks for the invitation but I act badly in public and can't be trusted so I have to decline! lol
















































































Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness said...

I will be there if only to turn that poor octopus child over to social services. That is abusive parenting.

Rain said...

Oh I'll be there! I want some of those nachos!!

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

I only snack on guests when they're hot, single men. But Babe Lincoln did get me excited. ;-)

Liz Hinds said...

Love Peter Pan and his shadow! Halloween is a really big thing over the Atlantic I guess. It's not so big here although it's taking off.

This N That said...

You have outdone yourself this time. Love the subway baby and the 🐙 octopus....Lots of good ones there...Thanks for the giggles!

Professor Chaos said...

Oh my God, there is nothing better than little kids in Halloween costumes!

And the Joan d'Arc costume? Genius!

Fundy Blue said...

This is a party I'd love to come to! The baby in the octopus costume is beyond cute! Some people are amazingly clever! Thanks for this post, Debra!

baili said...

i would love to come dear Debra :)
each sensational tradition in your party is compelling :)

Magic Love Crow said...

Deb, I'm coming! LOL! These costumes are brilliant! LOL! Love the food too! LOL! Wish you lived closer!! Big Hugs!

Ur-spo said...

All of this is marvelous!
How I would love to have a house dolled up like these !
