oh, geez, well here's a hint or two (keep in mind that it is EARLY in the morning for my widdle brain lol). Change 'You are cordially invited' to 'You are corpse-ually invited' Of course title your invite "Monster Mash" "Please attend in costume to avoid being eaten by mistake" If possible and not confusing, alter you name and address to spooky ones. For instance, my last name King would become King of the Underworld and my address on Shotwell Road would become say, Spookwell Road. This is a tricky one unless your guests are friends who know you and not the whole town, some of whom might not then be able to find you lol. You could include a map to avoid confusion. You could list the time as "Witching Hour: 8PM" (for instance) I hope some of these will fit. Have a hauntingly good time lol.

I read your comment about living in SA. I do have a couple of neat ideas for the party. Get a styrofoam or insulated bucket, paint it black if you like. Put in some dry ice (USE GLOVES!!!!).. just before the party add some hot water. It will make lovely creepy fog that will settle to the ground. Be sure to keep away from pets and kids, and put in a well ventilated place. Perhaps on your front porch so people walk thru the fog to get in. Make luminaries from empty tin cans. Use a nail and hammer to punch holes in the cans. You can make designs or words or just random holes (keep holes above some 1/2" from bottom of can). This is easiest if you freeze water in the cans to keep them from bending while hammering. Melt and remove the water. On the night of the party put in candles to light. The candlelight will shine thru the holes. If placed on anything the heat will damage, such as tables, be sure to put something under them to protect the surface of the furniture. These are very cool lining you walkway to your door or up the front stairs. Of course, color all drinks spooky colors with food coloring. Freeze colored ice cubes to make them spooky too.

Oh, I forgot. For the dry ice fog. Dry ice will evaporate into carbon dioxide and water vapor (thus the need for vetilation). As long as there is any ice in the bucket, more hot water will make more fog. DO NOT forget to use gloves AT ALL TIMES to handle it. Dry ice can freeze your skin in seconds. The cooler the place where it is, the more fog you'll get.

"There's a haunting at my house..." date & time. I think that's the best I can come up with. Oh, did any of those suggestions I gave you for your party work out?
