Just a quiet birthday night in…

2 Nov

For this year’s birthday, the OH had planned (at my insistence) a quiet night in for me… just a few friends coming round, some cupcakes and a glass of fizz.

No big Halloween bash, just a chilled, casual evening – but old habits die hard.

Especially when your OH has bought you an official bottle of Tru Blood to drink!

And has made you some ceramic fangs to wear…

… which look rather dapper with your fake moustaches…

… and then a friend brings you a pumpkin piñata (the video footage of us all trying to ‘bash’ the piñata makes me cry with laughter!)

… and then you decide that Tru Blood tastes better with a little vodka (in the cup your OH has made you especially)!

So all in all, the quiet night in turned out into a mini Halloween giggle-fest… .

… complete with very yummy blood red velvets that the OH baked too…

… and his rather superb owly and dapper dude pumpkins…

Thank you everyone… the girl who didn’t want to party happily admits a party was just what she needed. For once, I’ll forgive you all for not listening to me!

    The Pumpkin on the right really reminds me of Tick Tock from Return to Oz!

    I think your fiance needs to have his own blog! To document all his super-crafty activities! Looks like a fab party!

    p.s. I agree with Lynne…he needs his own blog too.

    Those pumpkins are BRILLIANT and make mine look a little… basic. Must try harder next year.

    That looks like a very cute birthday party indeed! Love the ceramic fangs.

    I have to know where your top is from? I think it is amazing.

    Also it looks like a wonderful night – those little pumpkins are just darling!!

    @Rhian – it’s jelly wallpaper from http://www.thornbackandpeel.co.uk 🙂

    @Bonnie – me too now you mention it!

    @Lynne, Tea for Joy, @Kerry – think he’s entirely happy to just have nice things said about him here – he says blogging would cut into his playstation time 😉

    @Victoria – I think he’s one of a kind I’m afraid (not even a brother) 😉

    @Jenny – it’s just from French Connection – it was one of those ‘oh no I’m going to have to buy that’ moments as soon as I saw it!
