A Happy Spooky Halloween Party

We had a great time at our annual Halloween Party this past weekend.  In addition to good friends, fun times, and delicious snacks it’s always great for the kids to do a test run of their costumes!

A spooky clip-art owl was my inspiration for the party.  Here are the materials I used to make the invitations and menu cards.

We had a lot of fun (and healthy!) snacks.

pumpkin fruit cupsI tried to draw the pumpkin faces on the fruit cups, but I did not have the right type of black marker (or these fruit cups had a plastic that you can’t draw on.)  I printed out jack-o-lanterns instead.  I also put random googly eyes around the table on the black table cloth.

The Boo Bananas were such a hit last year, I made them again!

at some point a googly eye from the cups dropped in the cider!  Someone was watching you!

We also had a great time trick-or-treating last night.  Months ago, Olivia decided she wanted to be Lucinda the good witch from Sophia the First.  Here was our attempt at recreating her costume.  Special thanks to my sister and niece who sewed the skirt!

 We hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween.  Now starts the first day of 365 days of me saying: “Halloween is over.”

  1. I made the hot buttered cider for a dinner party this Saturday and it was a big hit, once again! Best of all, it makes the whole house smell like autumn goodness:)
