31 Wishes

I had the joy of attending 31 Wishes yesterday. It was done by Ann Denise Anderson at her home in Ft. Worth, TX. She really knows how to decorate!! The whole house was done up in Halloween fashion! So much food and snacks to eat! We did not go hungry for sure!

This was the front of the house. Scary large spiders crawling around!!
 This is looking back to the front door inside the entry way of the house.
 This is looking down the entry way into the house. Look at the skeletons sitting on the bench in the hall. Cute!!

 The scene under the glass dome had lights.
This is the room to the left of the front door. It was set up a a vendor area. There were all kinds of things for sale. Ribbon, sheet music, doll patterns, ephemera.
Love this case on top of the piano. The little figures siting on the piano were for sale but I am not sure who made them. They were cute though.
 This is some decorations sitting on a table behind the couch in the den.
 Love this display on the mirror in the den!
 Good use of the witches hat!

Anne Denise had several of these kinds of skeletons around.
 This was the candy bar set up in the kitchen. Lots to choose from! I ate way to much through out the day!
 I wanted to take one of these Carmel apples home to eat later, but forgot!
 Kitchen all decorated for dinner. The glasses on the bar were mason jars and she painted designs on them in orange and black paint. They are washer safe. Cool idea!
This was on the buffet table.
Dinner is served! YUM!!
 We had three projects and it took all day to get them all done. I put the finishing touches on a few when I got home. It was a great day! I am so glad I got to go!


 Skeleton ornament. Can hang on a door knob or where ever.
 Dolls we made. Mine is the one on the left. My friends Mary did the center one and Mel's is the one on the right. They were fun to make. We sculpted the faces with paper clay. The bodies were already sewn for us. We had to make the clothes too.
 This another project we did. Collage on a book. Really fun! Never thought about using a paperback book for a canvas. I won the pumpkin for mine! I definitely will save the stem to make a velvet pumpkin. They are so popular now!
 I won a raffle prize too! Phyllis Ann Shows made this domino necklace. Happy to get it!
These were some of Ann Denise's samples of her dolls.

This was my name tag. Lots of work went into it!

 This was the room upstairs where we did the projects.
 Here is Mel! Love the banners hanging from the ceiling!
This was the cabinet where supplies were. Lots of ribbon to choose from for our projects!
It was a great experience! Ann Denise really knows how to throw an event!!
