Yesterday we showed you the invitation and shared the printables for our Witches Brew party. Today we thought we’d show you a few photos from the party itself!
Amanda, Sarah and I hosted this party together, which meant we had guests that knew one of us but didn’t know everyone coming to the party, so we thought it would be nice to make name tags. Amanda used the sketch pen on her Silhouette to create them and we hung them on a really cool clip frame from Silhouette. I think its a nice touch to help everyone get to know each other from the very beginning and it helped when it was time to vote on hats!
We kept it simple with the food. Sarah made brie with a pastry shell and peach jam, along with dark chocolate, caramel apple bites. Amanda made some adorable monster cupcakes, and crudite cups and I made our sparkling apple cider punch and cream cheese pinwheels. It was easy for us to work together and there was just enough tasty food to keep everyone coming back to grab more.
Amanda photographed her cupcakes with this adorable “eek” cupcake pick she made using the Silhouette as well. She is on a Silhouette roll lately and we are loving the results.
And of course we have to show how our amazing guests decorated the hats we included in the invites. They went above and beyond and it was so fun to see what a basic black hat became in their creative hands!
All those creative hats made it hard to pick winners for the hat contest. Each guest received a ballot and voted for the Spookiest, Cutest and Best Witches Hat.

Of course you can’t have a party without sending your guests away with favors! So Sarah made this simple cinnamon syrup from the recipe we featured on Pizzazzerie. The “test tube” bottles are from Martha Stewart’s Halloween line (we got them at Michael’s) and we labeled them with each guest’s name for a creepy laboratory effect.
It was a fantastic kick off to the Halloween season and Fall and we hope it inspires you to create your own magic this Halloween!
