Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” Party

October 18th, 2012

Halloween is only two weeks away, and you know what that means: soon you’ll have plenty of chances to scare yourself stiff watching all the old horror movies on television! I don’t know about you, but I think Alfred Hitchcock’s 1963 film The Birds is still one of scariest movies I’ve ever seen. The Master of Suspense knew a thing or two about humor, too, and we’d like to think he would very much approve of our “Birds”-inspired Halloween fête. So without further ado, may we present a few of our fowl-est Halloween ideas

    This has to be my favorite idea for a Halloween party yet! I am a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock, so any event that brings his work into play, is a winner in my book. Love how all the details and decor came together. Nice work, ladies!

  6. I LOVE the shadows photo booth idea!! Totally creative! Awesome job!!

    • Jennifer Rose Smith says:

      Thanks, Monica! Yes, beware of the movie if the idea creeps you out… you’ll never look at a flock of birds in a tree the same way again. Very scary!!!
