At the beginning of last month I saw on the House Party site that they were looking for applicants to host a Tombstone Haunted House party! Without hesitation I put my application in. I knew this would be the absolute perfect party for me to host since for the past 2 years we’ve hosted a Halloween party, and we were planning on hosting a 3rd! I was wishing and hoping I would get this party–not only to try a wide variety of products, but to cut down on my total grocery bill for this annual event. Well, sure enough… I got it, and began planning my menu around Tombstone pizza’s! 

I must admit that not only myself, but ALL my guest were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the Tombstone Pizza’s were. I think it had been quite some time since all of us had bought the Tombstone Pizza brand, and I know that–that will not be the case any more! In fact I loaded up on a few pizza’s today since they were on sale at my local grocery store!

We also got to try some delicious Nestle Tollhouse Cookies, now who can resist these awesome prepackaged cookies? Not I, nor anyone else at the part! Out of the 48 cookies I had baked only a handful of sugar cookies were left by the end of the night!

Not only did the kids get to bring some candy home, but so did the adults. Wonka candy, to boot! Butterfingers, nerds, sweet tarts, and laffy taffy! 

Here is some more information on Tombstone Pizza found directly from the website
Founded in 1962, TOMBSTONE® pizza began its days in “The Tombstone Tap,” a bar located across from a graveyard in Medford, Wisconsin.  Today, TOMBSTONE is a nationally distributed frozen pizza brand that provides consistently good, unmistakable flavor with just the right combination of sauce, cheese, crust, and every day toppings.
“What do you want on your Tombstone?”  With over 12 different flavor varieties and multiple crust types to choose from, your family can have TOMBSTONE pizza your way.  Whether you want Original Pepperoni, Half Pepperoni/Half Cheese, or Garlic Bread crust, TOMBSTONE has something to please everyone! 
You can find TOMBSTONE in the frozen section at your grocery store. 
We love Halloween in my house, so naturally we love to decorate for the holiday. Here is a picture of the front of the house during the daylight hours (not too creepy, but when you see it at night it can be a little eerie)! 
One of the very cool spooky tree’s my husband painted for our party! 
This is what the entry way to our home looked like… Fun House mirror, rustic coffin, hour glass that ultimately translates to “your time is running out”! 
And if you look closer at the coffin you just might see that someone is trying to escape!!! 
Now that you’ve gotten a small glimpse at our decorations now its time for the food! If you want to see more decorations and how we made some of it make sure you stop by our craft blog; Sew Woodsy

  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 1/4 cup red onion, thinly sliced
