Getting in the Cemetery Spirit of Things

Posted in Creative Inspiration, Halloween Related, Planning with tags , , , on October 24, 2010 by bojo

Stopped by a couple local cemeteries yesterday and took some photos. My plan is to print them and replace any framed images in the house with these. I did a little playing around with them to make them more interesting.

This one is only about 30 years old, but looks much older.

Been mildly obsessed with Halloween cookies lately. Thought I’d post some that I found nice.

Love me some polka dots!

Perhaps some un-dead gingerbread men?

Gourmet Eyeball Cookies

 

Spider web cookies w/ a clear, isomalt center!

I’m thinking of doing a simple dipped oreo for my party. Boring, yes, but I think I might dip them in white chocolate, dyed red, of course.

Invitations: Mine & Others

I agonized over the invites entirely too long. First it was going to be individual foam tombstones. Then it was going to be cardstock coffins, then it was going to be a gate-folded card with elaborate cut-outs… This was just easiest. I had to find a font that didn’t make it look pirate-y, but I think it turned out alright. It’s resume paper with burned edges. About 4″x6″.
