I Want My Mummy...To Party!

Today's Wonder of the World is...a Halloween Party for you!

Welcome friends! I'm so pleased you found your way from Vanessa's Party Wonderland to my little corner of South Carolina!
And you there, pretty newcomer, it's nice to meet you!
My goodness gracious, how festive you look!
It's almost a pity that we'll have to cover you up.
What? Didn't I tell you? We're all Mummies Today!
Here, hold still.

Just look at yourself in the mirror! You're bound to like what you see!

Oh sweet mummy,

Don't be shy! Let's go inside!
Look! Tanner the Slobber Dog has wiggled out of his mummy costume to give you a lick hello!

He's not much of a mummy, but he loves you!
He brought his friend along. It looks like she likes the costume!

She's not like Tanner. Tanner thinks mummies might be food on two legs. He wants to unwrap you!

Speaking of mummy dogs and food, how about some mummy treats for the mummy?
We've got more mummy dogs!

And mummy pizzas!

Or maybe you'd like a wrap.

Get it?
Now, how about a little limbo?

And you can't have a party without dancing!

Whew! Look at you!

What did you say?
Your sugar is low?
Why, I have just what you need!

Mummy cupcakes!

I'm so glad you stopped by! Before you hit the party trail, don't forget to put your name in the hat for one of the two party gifts I'm giving away!
I'll pull two names out of my comment hat first thing Tuesday morning, October 21, and each winner will receive an antique French postcard and a signed copy of my book, Random House's French By Heart!

The postcards were made during World War I. Each is dated 1917. I hope you like them!

Thank you for coming, my dear!

Have a Wonder-full Halloween! And drop by any time!
Love, Becky

Love the mummy sausages...cute! I once dressed up as a cat at a Hallowe'en party - then we went out in a taxi and my 'tail' got stuck outside the door till we got to the disco. Still makes me laugh. Yhanks for the reminder and for adding more fun to our day!

Theresa said...

Looks like I'm all wrapped up at your party. It's pretty awesome. Happy Haunting!

obxpatti said...

so cute! Love the mummy dog.

Kandes Lee said...

Haha! I love the mummy cupcakes. I should send you a picture of the mummy glass bead I made last week. It turned out so cute, but I never listed it. I didn't know who would want a mummy bead.

Daydreamer :) said...

Nice to meet you too. I had a great time.

Happy nightmares,
Daydreamer :)

Alberta and Ava said...

What an original theme. I had a hauntingly good time in your tomb!

JaxPop said...

I like the tube steak - I mean hot dog - mummies.

Don't go pullin' my name outta the hat - I have your book already & if anyone visiting your blog hasn't read it by now - shame on 'em. It's funny, amusing, well written & all that other gushy stuff.

Hmmmm.... Halloween is getting close. Anything haunted is just fine with me.

Altered Route said...

Mummy Treats...these are the best!!
Great pictures!

Tumble Fish Studio said...

It was so nice to be a guest at your lovely party! I love being a mummy and the cupcakes were delicious. I must admit, I snooped around a bit. Had so much fun contemplating brooms and popcorn! There's a book I had once you might enjoy, I think it was called the Extraordinary Origins of Everyday things. I'll come back and visit longer soon. Stop by my little place if you get the chance!

Jenn said...

ooooh Becky what a wonderful time I've had!!! That mummy video is the funniest thing I've ever seen!! I can't wait to show that to my boys tomorrow!!! I see some Mummy Dogs in our near future too...
Great job with all the photos!!

I'm so intrigued by your wonderful looking book!! I have a bit of an obession with all things French and the cover is ADORABLE! How fun!! xox...jenn

serenity said...

I don't want to admit that I haven't bought your book yet, because I have every intention of doing so and can't believe I haven't yet. But now I'll wait at least a couple of days to see if I win a signed one!! And if I do, I'll buy one for a friend instead. :)

KarenHarveyCox said...

Mummy magic, oh wow. What a great post and so unique. I love those mummies-in-a-blanket too! This post is wonderful. Happy Halloween. Karen

Natalie said...

Hope you don't mind a late fly-by...I'm partying right through the witching hour!

I've enjoyed your hauntingly boo-tiful post and must try those ghoulish goodies soon.

Thanks for having me <|:^)

Kiss Noises said...

Oh I would adore to win your exciting!! Cute party!! Thanks for coming to visit me at Kiss Noises...we have had such a lot of fun flitting all around the world on our broomsticks, dropping in here and then for refreshments and we still have such a long way to go!

Hi Becky
What a fun party! Sorry I haven't been by to visit for awhile. I somehow lost you in my list of favorites. I've fixed it, so you'll be seeing more of me.
Hugs, Rhondi

Awake In Rochester said...

Some very creative ideas. I like the mummy dogs the best.

Linda Crispell said...

Rebecca-Insanely cute eats! Adorable mummies.
How is Madame Mallet? Any talk of your book being turned in to a film? It would make a wonderful one!

Melissa said...

Thanks for the Halloween laughs! Happy Halloween!

Grosgrain Kathleen said...

Oh these are great! I love the pigs in a blanket one! How creative! Your blog is so unique. I've never come across one like it. And that's a feat in the blogosphere!

And yes, you can of course use my photos. Anytime. I would be beyond flattered! Thank you!

Gina2424 said...

Wow! What a delightful post! And I would love, love, love to have a copy of your book. Anywho, I've been meaning to order it! Do you read any Nicholas Sparks? A little treacly, but I like his NC/SC settings.

adrienne said...

The mummy dogs and cupcakes are my favorites. So cute!

Liz said...

So fun. I wanted to be medusa this year, but CANNOT figure out how to do my hair. :(

lotusloq said...

Wow! so many new faces in the posting! Sorry I couldn't come to the party. It looks like everyone had so much fun!

Like the crowd I love the mummydogs and the mummy cupcakes. Those are so cute and yummy mummy eats.

Randy and Linda said...

I'm getting hungry now! My tummy could like some of those yummy mummy cupcakes. Might have to pull out the googley eyes first.

The original French movie "Diabolique" is a must-see around Halloween time.

Really enjoyed your Halloween party fun!


rochambeau said...

Mummies little Mummy is the cutest one. You have such a FUN party post here Becky.
An EARLY happy Halloween to you too.

Twyla and Lindsey said...

Susie Q said...

This was such fun! I loved the mummy dogs! i love them so much I asked my mummy to nake them for me. *bwaa haa haa* Okay, so that was decidely NOT funny. Still, I think they look good enough to eat. *grin*
Loved each and every one of the pictures. Your sense of humor is infectious!


Marina Capano said...

I hope you in my halloween post!


Gavitee said...

What a great theme.....for a party. I think there is a little mummy in all of us. Love the cupcakes.......although I don't know if I could eat something that was looking at me. I will be back!

all over the map said...

what a fun party you had. i loved all the mumminess. cupcakes were my fave.
sorry i missed out on the give-away.
hope you are enjoying the halloween season and festivities.

Laume said...

I'm too late for your book giveway - durnit - but it's still fun to discover your blog. Your mummy theme - VERY original. I suppose it shouldn't surprise me that most of us came as ourselves - witches - LOL. I've always wanted to make those mummy hotdogs. Maybe when my granddaughter arrives for Halloween.

Sue said...

Cool to see this mummy themed party. Last Halloween, our theme was also The Mummy. We've cooked mummy pizzas, candies and cookies shaped like mummies, white lady drinks, and we made crazy mummy souvenirs. We've used a lot of toilet paper for our costumes and props. We've expected a large number of kids that will come to our event. So we availed good tent rentals. Sacramento, our hometown has a lot of reputable tent rental services that's why we didn't encounter any problems.
