Show & Tell Tuesday – Grown Up Parties

I love to plan and host parties.  When it comes to parties I love to go big!  Today I’m sharing some of my favorite adult parties we’ve hosted.  Halloween parties are one of my favorite to plan.  We typically have two big parties every October.


This past year we hosted a Pumpkin Carving party…I have always wanted to host a party like this but we have never had time.  So this year I made sure we had it on our calendar.

We had a lot of food and drinks ready for everyone…

We had six families come over and here are their pumpkins. We even did a Facebook contest to see who had the best pumpkin and the winner got a $25 gift card to a local restaurant.

We hosted a couple’s Halloween party and everyone had to come as famous couple.

Danny and I decided to go as matching Elvis.

We ended the night with some karaoke.

We thought it would be a lot of fun if everyone dressed up as a couple (famous or not famous) and of course all the kids came dressed in their cute costumes.  We had a lot of yummy food and great time hanging out with everyone.

National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Party

One of my best friends planned a National Lampoon’s party and every guest was given their character to dress up as for the party.  They had a blast and I really would like to plan to have this party for this Christmas season.

These people aren’t my friends but how fun would it be to dress up like them!

  1. Love the pumpkin carving party idea! So fun! Our friends have an annual Chevy Chase Christmas Vacation themed party every year, it is so fun!!!

  2. The pumpkin party contest is such a great idea! My co-worker did a gingerbread house party with her family and posted it on Facebook to have her Fbook friends pick the winner! Your friends as Ace Ventura are cracking me up over here!
