Halloween Party (30 photos)
Halloween is such a fun time of year, but can sometimes be a bit scary for the little ones. WIth that in mind, I wanted to design a whimisical, child-like Halloween party with lots of cute characters and bright colors sure to "thrill" and not scare our little ones away.
The children were overjoyed to see all of the sweets and goodies at the party table including gumballs and candies, a homemade two-tiered chocolate cake and gorgeous decorated cookies that I found at HomeGoods. My personal favorites were the cookies with fondant toppers made by Brittany at Edible Details. The lady is amazing and perfectly coordinated her creations with the Halloween characters from Shindig's Halloween printable set.
I think the children loved the Oreo ghost pops most which I made myself using a mold from Spinning Leaf and then attached to wooden skewers and added some ghostly embellishments of cheesecloth and white tissue paper. The candy kabobs were a hit, too, and so easily made using some ghost Peeps, peach gummy rings, Oreos and a cute little candy corn sucker I found at Michaels.
With a vibrant orange polka dot fabric for the backdrop and some adorable ghosts I found at TJ Maxx, the party table was sure to please the littlest of party guests. The garland on the table front was created using the Halloween printable logos and matting them with some colorful gathered crepe paper. The pieces were then hot glued to black tissue fringe from Sweet Shop LuLu.
The children's adorable appliqued shirts were made by Little One Boutique and couldn't have been cuter for the party. The Frankenstein shirt was a top-seller already, but Dawn specially made Reagan's ghost shirt to match the printables.
To complete the Halloween party fun, each guest was offered a choice of take-home gifts from the party favor table including bags of eyeball chocolates or a favor "on a stick" which was a small box of candy attached to a wooden skewer with crepe paper ruffles.
