#aberscream: Halloween bloggers social

What do you get when you put two blogging besties together with a common love for Halloween and a passion for bringing fun blogger events to Aberdeen? You get a recipe for the most Spooktacular Halloween event of course. Add another two awesome bloggers into the mix, and a bunch of awesome business' and abracadabra you've got one pretty insane bloggers Halloween Social.

It all started when I texted Sarah the most ridiculous idea, "Let's host a Halloween Social..." Mwahaha did she know what she was getting into or what...

A few weeks later Sarah, Laura, Karen and myself would go on to host our first #AbzChat event and to be honest, I think it went pretty ruddy well.

We were extremely lucky in securing Bos'n as our fantastic venue and Père Magloire Calvados as a drinks sponsor - big shout out to Adrian Gomes of 10 Dollar Shake for this! Equipped with the perfect venue, kick ass food from Rye & Soda, a drinks menu created by the guys at Bos'n, a spooktacular bag of goodies, and bags full of Halloween decorations, we transformed the venue bringing Hallow's Eve to Aberdeen a week early.

Costumes at the ready and a series of tricks and treats set up, we welcomed our guests into the madness. With a fancy dress competition, sweet treats, raffles, cocktails, dunkin' for apples, a selfie station and our Halloween playlist with some cray moves on the dance floor, there was plenty for our blogging babes to get involved in.

Sarah bagged best dressed with her crazy cat lady outfit, Iga took second place and Georgia was awarded third. There were some amazing outfits and it was ace to see everyone getting in the festive spirit.

The food and drink was amazing. We had three signature spooky cocktails: A'wight Treacle with toffee sauce and pressed apples, The Wild One with Elderflowe cordial and lime (this was my fav), and the Bad Blood wth fresh lemon, egg whites, red wine and bitters - another very popular one. Chris Tonner, head chef of Rye & Soda had created some incredible black pudding scotch eggs (I'm still telling people about them), a trio of fish, chicken and veggie tacos, roasted pumpkin seeds and barbecue mac and cheese balls.

You can check out my photo diary of the event below...

Big thanks to Adrian Gomes, Chris Tonner, all the staff at Bos'n and Rye & Soda. Not forgetting our incredible sponsors/goodie bag donations, we truly wouldn't have done it without you all!
