Monster Mash

Halloween 2010


 
I invited my guests to our "Graveyard Smash" by sending them a "Starring You" Monster Mash video from Jib Jab..  For the party each child was assigned a classic movie monster to dress up like.

Rex as "Frankenstein's monster".


Frankenstein's place setting included green plates and placemats, bolts, and electric lightbulb.


Asher as "The Invisible Man".


The Invisible Man's place setting consisted of a clear cutting board for the
placemat,  clear plate, bowl and silverware and a sunglasses.


Jett as a very dashing "Phantom of the Opera".


The Phantom's table setting used a black placemat, white and black plate,
 red salad plate, black bowl, opera program and white mask.


Our beautiful "Countess Dracula" as portrayed by Kamryn.


Dracula's table was dressed with a purple satin placemat, black embossed placemat,
 red and purple plates, black bowl, fangs, bat and Dracula's medallion on a chain.


Korbi as a very convincing "Mummy".


The mummy's table setting had a rattan placemat, plates, wooden bowl stuffed
with gauze and silverware wrapped in shredded gauze.


Danii plays the lovely "Bride of Frankenstein".


The Bride had a black lace placemat, red and white plate, red flower salad plate and red rose petals.


Our "Wolfman", Merrill.


The Wolfman had a brown placemat, wooden leaf charger,
 brown plate and bowl and werewolf cotton candy.






Then it was out to the dark and spooky "Haunted Pumpkin Patch", where everyone looked for pumpkins with numbers on the bottom. These numbers corresponded with a number on a prize back inside.


Of course the night ended with the traditional touch the slimy
 dead body part game, "My good friend Fred" and Jetts favorite...


...THRILLER!!!  Ah-ha-ha-ha!


Gramma Luvlee’s Good Friend Fred
 
Here lies Fred, my dear departed friend. 
I know he wished to be here til the end.
Fred was a fun man a giving man too.
He wanted to share his body parts with you!

1) Fred was a golly man with a great big gut.
Let's pass around his intestines just for luck.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
Twisted and shriveled in a bunch
just like they were after his lunch.

( A long thin balloon filled with jello & oiled)

2) His fingers were long, almost pure white.
Lets pass around a few, no need for fright.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
Pretty greasy & slimy, he lived in a cave.
Never really had time to bathe.

(Slightly cooked & cooled & oiled baby carrots)

3) His toes were grimy from wearing no shoes.
Short & stubby and a little bit blue.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
His toenails are long and a little bit brittle.
Don’t mind the wet, it’s just his spittle!

(Cold Vienna sausages)

4) One eye went left, the other right.
Poor Fred had really bad eyesight!
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
Handle them gently for they may roll.
Fred would hate if they fell from the bowl!

(2 Large peeled grapes)

5) Now Fred he wasn’t a very smart man.
We found his brain stuffed in a can.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
Give them a squeeze, there’s not a lot.
I guess old Fred, his mind is shot!

(I rounded the corners on three sponges and put a rubber band in the center to hold them together. It sort of resembled a brain. Then I soaked them in cold water. You could also use a cooked cauliflower.)

6) Fred’s bones were brittle, dry & old.
Give them a crack, if you’re so bold.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
The rats have chewed them, you can too!
But wipe them first, there may be goo!

(Pretzel rods)

7) Now one thing Fred couldn’t be called
was billiard ball, hairless, slick or bald!
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
His crowning glory, styled with spit.
They ladies liked to run their fingers through it!

(Fake Fur)

8) It stopped beating with a start.
Poor Fred’s little slimy heart.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
 His heart it stopped no more to thump.
Please don’t scream if it starts to jump!

(A large tomato, blanched & peeled)

9) Fred was proud of his pearly whites.
A good set of choppers kept him feed right.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
His teeth were strong unlike his eyesight.
Be careful when you touch them, they might bite!

(Corn Nuts)

10) Just like Van Gough, he only had one ear.
But he heard just fine, perfectly clear.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
A little bit shriveled because of age.
But an ear nonetheless, it says on this page.

(Dried apricot)

11) The last thing we found was Fred’s strong hands.
They were down deep, covered in sand.
Fresh from the grave, wet & cold.
Just a little slimy, just a little old!
Cold and stiff as they were when he died.
Hold one or you’ll think that I lied.

(Vinyl Glove filled with sand or flour & frozen)

To keep his pieces safe and sound, it’s time to put them back in the ground.
So now you’ve met my dear, dead friend, that brings this story to an end!
