We were fortunate enough to receive an invite to the infamous Wiggleston Halloween shindig this year. Miranda does an amazing job picking a theme and running with it every year. This year was all about pirates. Pirates of the Carribean was playing, there was a huge sails with a lightning storm projected on it, skeletons, a treasure hunt and boat races in the basement, complete with a motorized shark balloon. I put together our costumes using all items from Goodwill (except the Jack Sparrow boot covers Bradley wore that came from an online costume site). We had a blast and I can’t wait to see what next year holds.
On the hunt for treasure. Photo op with the Captain:
I found a football mold pan on Amazon that worked perfectly to shape the boats. Then I used lollipop sticks and the free printable from this site for the sails. I tried my hand at this butterbeer recipe that I found through Pinterest. It was good, but trying to serve it cold was a little unfortunate, because the butter separated and hardened again once it was cold.
