"How do you begin to describe the most over the top detailed organized party one has ever attended. Halloween 2010 at the Brandes’ will go down in history books as the most rocking party. From start to finish it was fun action packed and attention getting.  Tanya and Charles created a masterpiece with entertainment throughout many fable vignettes to walk through before arriving in a gorgeous tent to enjoy all the evening’s festivities. The costumes of guests were so creatively detailed and so in line with the theme, The Dark Forest. All this adventure made for such a magical evening and of course some interesting drinks made with black vodka, ginger and red clover added to a mystical night!" - Valerie Cooper
