I had a Halloween Party on Friday (of course, it was Halloween). First time in my life. In Hungary we do not celebrate Halloween, but orange is my favourite colour so I wanted to celebrate the 'orange festival'. We have guests very rarely so I was really excited. We had to tidy the whole flat, make decoration and food. It was a big run at the end, but it worth.
Let me show you some pictures. I hope you will enjoy them:
This is the wreath on the front door. I made the little witch last year, so just put her on the wreath and hang now.
Some days before Halloween I sewed these coasters. I just started to sew and finally got these. I am very proud, I like them so much. I used simple cheap black fabric and free hand stitched it with white thread and my dear Janome. I didn't make a pattern, so they are all different.
And here is the table with Halloween decoration:
B cooked the food (unfortunately we only have pics about the first food), he used Japanese pumpkins for the soup. Aren't they beautiful?
And this is the soup:
B baked the pupkin seeds as well.... Yummmmm!
Here are the apple-cinnamon muffins, I read the recipe in Amaranta's blog and changed some little things. My friends liked them very much.
We bought orange chocolate pills and put the muffins in it. Unfortunately I did not have time for the black chocolate decoration, time won against me...
One of my friends had her birthday just before Halloween, she got this witch hat chocolate cake...
The rest of the cake became cemetary with some rum, cream and sponge fingers. Ah and some dark chocolate.
And Halloween can't be without pumpkin, I mean Jack-o-lantern. Unfortunately it was finished only the next day, but I think it turned out very well.
This is a picture of the pumpkin:
And this is the pumpkin in the dark room:
