A very Lucero Halloween!


I LOVE themed parties, you guys. In the last couple of years I’ve thrown a Murder Mystery Party, 90’s party, Where’s Waldo? party, white elephant party, and a thrift store party (probably the best). So when we decided to have over a couple of our favorite couples I knew it had to be themed. As if Halloween isn’t themey enough, right? Haha! We collectively decided to dress in different decades! Steve and I dressed in the 1970’s, Kate was from the 80’s, and Taylor from the 50’s. Jessica and Tim came from a church event and were dressed a very cute Mary Margaret (Once Upon a Time) and a lumberjack! Jared and the other Tim had to come late because they were working so we just let them come as they are. So I guess only 50% of us were dressed to the theme, but still, I loved it.

We ate my favorite chicken tortilla soup, sugar cookies, pumpkin bars, espresso cupcakes, little smokies in a blanket, and the candy that was too good to pass out! While we were eating dinner we created a “pick from the hat” type of game that gave us an action to complete when the doorbell rang with trick-or-treaters. My favorites were: Steve handing out candy using his knuckles instead of finger tips, Taylor doing the chicken dance, and all 4 of us singing “trick or treat! trick or treat! trick or treat! trick or treeeeeat” like a barbershop quartet! The reactions were awkward and hilarious.

Once all 8 of us arrived we played a BRUTAL round of Battle of the Sexes. I am convinced that game was created by men for men. They had the easiest questions like “Where would a woman use a banana clip?” and “What type of makeup requires a wand?” UH DUUUUH. Our questions were “what is the corner piece of a wrestling ring called?” and the differences between baseball leagues, salt water or fresh water fish, and random questions. What the heck? UN-FAIR. And yes, I am a sore loser.  All of us women were.

I made a video of my favorite moments of the night! I am so thankful for the friends that we are blessed with. And it’s fun being around newlyweds! We were all married within the last year and a half!

    That photo of Taylor fixing the cupcakes is like, amazing. It made me feel like I was looking at a homemaker in the 50’s. :) Looks like you guys had a blast. :)

    I’m with Des. The shot of Taylor fixing cupcakes is incredible. Everything about it – that lighting is bonkers good – screams Mad Men.

AND NOW SHE’S BAAAAAA-AAAAAAAAAAACK! She reminded me that I need to keep up my party planning streak of hosting a party every 2 months, so she told me to throw her a Welcome Back BBQ.. so I did!
