monster bash

Misunderstood monsters are all invited to my house next Monday night.  That’s right, I’m hosting a monster bash: a celebratory fête for all the good hearts crying out from inside a somewhat disfigured facade.

What’s that?  You’re a helpful ghost? A big friendly giant? A monster afraid of the dark? Come one and come all.  I’m having a spooky movie night and i’m inviting my closest friends and all misunderstood goblins.

My closet friends, however, will need to wear a spooky sweater to the monster bash.  I’ve decided that ugly sweater parties shouldn’t always be reserved for Christmas.  Let’s start rocking the heavy knits a little sooner, shall we?  Here are my top picks:

As for the entertainment, my friends have requested the following:

Do you have a halloween tradition?  Any suggestions for the spooky movie marathon?

  1. Oh my goodness, I know I am seriously dating myself here, but I just had flashback memories of watching the original Casper cartoon on Saturday mornings 🙂 Thank you, I think 😉

    • minneapolis has this brunch spot that plays ‘flashback cartoons’ while you dine — keeps all those saturday mornings fresh in my mind 🙂 do your kids do saturday morning cartoons? is that still a thing?

      • Unfortunately, it seems as though Saturday morning cartoons are a thing of the past. Much like phones that you actually “dialed”, they are something we just talk about now 😉 It has now been replaced with on-demand shows offered by Netflix et al. Oh, how times have changed 🙂

  2. Such a great idea! Casper was a staple in my house growing up. And that monster sweater may be something I just wear year round…
    Obviously you need to document this night with some fun pictures. 😉
    Love it!

  3. um i really wish i could come to this!! move to boston please?! hocus pocus and casper definitely bring me back to my childhood, and i love anything tim burton, so your movie selections are perfect!

  4. I LOVE this! Monster Movie Night with ghostly tacky sweaters! What could be better? If only we lived closer… my husband and I would be there!

    Both of us are HUGE scary movie fans and we try to do a movie marathon around Halloween! They always include: Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Changeling (with George C. Scott), The Ring, Sleepy Hollow and Silver Bullet (Stephen King and the best werewolf movie EVER!).

    As a baker I have to ask, what kind of ghoulish goodies are you making? I love to bake themed goodies for any get-together! 🙂

  5. HOCUS POCUS! AKA, the best Halloween movie ever 🙂 What a fun party–wish I could crash it! Remember how dreamy Devon Sawa was in Casper? Now I need to see if I can find those movies on Amazon Prime. They bring back such good tween memories…
