Someone call CPS…
No really… you might ought to, or at least that is what was threatened to me when I announced my 6 year old’s devoted love for scary movies.
Apparently I am traumatizing her, brainwashing her… poor kid doesn’t even have a chance and will be destined to grow up a serial killer or worse! (The only thing I can think of that would be worse would be a sanctimonious b**** but I’ll keep that to myself.)
However, despite the obvious threat to my parenthood- I took a chance and actually gave my child the birthday party of her dreams- complete with a visit from Jason Voorhees himself. (Such a rebel mother I am- allowing my children to pick their own party themes.)
The party was ridiculously easy to put together-who knew there were so many options for bloody party decorations? (Thank you zombie craze!)
-I bought up a bloody table cloth, red plates, bloody napkins and bloody balloons.
-I swung by Walmart and put in my ridiculous request for cupcakes resembling blood splatters… if only you could have all had front row seats to that conversation! It was priceless.
-Next we purchased Jason Voorhees masks for all the party guests, and a nice hanging bloody knife display to drape from the ceiling (this was LilyRae’s favorite part).
-To complete the look we got some bloody splatter window clings to really spook the guests.
-Booking Jason to show up was surprisingly the easiest part- it’s amazing what you can do when your husband helps to run the biggest haunted attraction around our town (The Haunted Feed Mill)
All in all I will say it was a huge success and surprisingly I still have custody of each of my children post party. (Now whether or not any parents will ever allow their child to attend a party at my house again remains to be determined.)
In case you are interested in throwing an epic Jason Party yourself- Check out Amazon! I literally got all of my supplies (except the cupcakes and red plates) from there with super quick shipping!
Bloody Balloons (This didn’t end up making it in time and we just made our own out of white balloons and red acrylic paint!)
