Tim Burton Inspired Halloween Party


 So there is a method to all my madness after-all.  I knew I was going to be making Tim Burton inspired cupcakes for our Halloween Party with our youth kids this month so the week before Josh and I decided to go all out and keep the theme through-out the party. I work better under pressure anyhow. Here are a handful of photos from last weekends party.  I hope that it gives you some ideas for your own Halloween parties.
 Jack Skellington Cupcakes

 Corpse Bride Mini-Wedding Cakes 
Edward Scissorhands Cupcakes
Here is the only photo I grabbed with the two of us.  Josh was obviously Jack Skellington and I pulled together a costume hours before the party. I went as Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd. Most appropriately of course. 


Hope your Halloween season is filled with magic and tons of Tim Burton movies.

Which Tim Burton movie is your favorite? 

Love,
   Erin 


**Edit - to make the backdrop use a long extending curtain rod and tape crepe-paper (we doubled colors to make wider stripes) to the top. Hang curtain rod from the ceiling. Spray paint stray branches a vibrant color and using fishing wire to also hang from the ceiling in front of your backdrop.   Very easy!!

  8. This looks like it was so much fun.

    Oh man I think I like, about 95% of his movies. I've always really liked beetle juice and Edward Scissorhands because I think they were the first two movies I'd seen by him.
