Halloween Party Inspiration
Happy October Gnomies!
I shared a couple of Halloween themed posts late last month and since it is officially October, as far as I am concerned, anything Halloween related is now fair game.
I started getting my decorations set up in my dining room and decided to set up a little party area to inspire you to get into the spirit. I was at the supermarket with my daughter a couple of weeks ago and when we stumbled upon the Halloween section she got super excited and of course wanted to take everything home.
I indulged her a little bit and we chose a few new decorations and goodies to bring home with us. Here are some of my ideas for your Halloween get together this year:
In addition to candy and treats, you can set out healthy foods like fresh fruit. I displayed the grapes inside the skeleton’s rib cage.
Pumpkin flavor cupcakes were simple to make with an easy ready to mix cupcake kit and decorative gourds and mini pumpkins make easy decorations.
Have the kids make little masks out of paper plates and paper drinking straws. If you don’t want to mess around with a punch recipe, pick up some mini Halloween themed pop cans for the kiddos.
Spider webs and simple bats cut out of black card stock make easy decorations that you can use year after year. I made this Spider Mummy Wreath back in 2012 and I still get good use out of it.
Send the kids home with little treat bags filled with dollar store toys if you don’t want them to load up on too many sweets.
Trick or Treating pumpkins can be used as bowls to hold snacks like cheese and crackers.
I made the BOO garland from a cheap fake chain decoration and letters cut out of card stock. Chloe helped me decorate the table with a cheese cloth runner and purple and black star confetti.
And what’s a Halloween party without some creepy tunes? Check out my Halloween playlist:
