If you haven’t gathered from the graphic above or the thirty times I’ve mentioned it, we had a Halloween party this past weekend.

I LOVE Halloween. I love the candy, I love the decorations, and I especially love the costumes. We plan ours out months ahead of time and I love to carefully thrift or sew each part of the costume.
This year we were…..

DRUMROLL PLEASE

……………….

……………..

Bellatrix Lestrange, Dumbledore and Harry Potter!

Unfortunately, these are the best pictures we have of all of us together. party23 
Luckily, my friend Betsy took one on her phone

I am really happy with how our costumes came out.
I’ll be back with more details on how I made them later in the week.

We also had appearances by Joaquin Phoenix and Mary Poppins.

At least until they were struck by a spell from Dumbledore’s wand. . .

J.K. Rowling forgot to mention that Dumbledore could magically tap a keg

We had a blast hanging out with our friends and seeing all the creative costumes. It was our first holiday party to host in the new (actually, it’s been almost a year since we bought it) house and I can say for certain it won’t be the last.

Ugly Christmas sweater party anyone?
