huge huge thank yous to everyone who came. a thousand apologies to those i was unable to extend an invitation to. i wish i could have invited everyone and it was a tough decision having to cut so many people that i would have loved to have join us.
thank you first and foremost to my dear husband kevin for the hours of work he put into making this day happen. he built the coffin from cardboard and 1x2's and spent late hours spray painting down in the parkade. at least in the late hours nobody was around to see him spray painting a toddler sized coffin!!! for helping me grab pumpkins when he had no time, for helping to prep the food the night before and cooking EVERYTHING the morning of. for scooping an entire container of boconccini and fitting the olives in, for testing and baking all the worm meatballs... actually for sitting down with me and helping create much of the menu. for slaving and sweating in the kitchen for hours in shorts and a tank top the morning of. for carving those insanely amazing apples, they were a hit!!!
thank you to my cousin lauren for contributing the mouthwatering desserts and to cait for helping make the flatbread and providing an extra oven in which to bake them!
thank you to Taryn & Syx for arriving early to help out, for taking all the fantastic photos for the photobooth and all the details. i was so exhausted and overwhelmed, it was so great to have someone else take over camera duties while i soothed myself through panic attacks. you guys did such an awesome job with these photos, i couldn't be happier! thank you thank you thank you!
thank you to KLF & Milos who came over last minute on Friday night to make us a frigging delicious Thai Curry dinner and help get a bunch of the crafts done. thank you for implementing your speed, efficiency and organizational skills. truly, so much would not have happened if it were not for your generous help and good company. can not wait to have a FUN night with you guys!
thank you KLF for carving these dope pumpkins!
THANKS TO MY MOM FOR TAKING THE CHILDREN
(and kindly helping to pay for some of the groceries!)
thank you to Michelle & Jason for being so patient with my crazy indecisive nature, embarrassing last minute requests, and for helping out on the day by bringing down toys to keep the kids busy and providing any random necessities at a moment's notice.
thank you to Matt & Renee for lending us Henry, the skulls and the tarantula!
and a big thanks to Jen (if you are actually reading this) and her sister for coming to help and keep me company late the night before while i was setting up!
clearly, i could not have done this on my own. why do i ever and alway think i can handle it? oh yeah, because i'm a crazy control freak of nature!
until next halloween...
so please. to anyone in want or in need of some creative assistance for their birthday, shower, dinner party or event, i have a whole lot of ideas and a backup crew to help bring your vision into fruition!
