Not So Scary Halloween Party

by Jessica Roe

All you need is a few fun items from Party City to make these spooktacular treats and decorations for your home this Halloween. These 5 hacks are so simple and kids can help make most of them too.

When my boys talk about their elementary school years, they often talk about their parties and celebrations. Some of their favorites have always been Halloween parties. In fact, one of my sons just said how bad he felt for his cousins this year because they will miss out on in class Halloween celebrations.

That little comment inspired this celebration design. I wanted to share how easy it is to create a fun, memorable, adorable, and affordable Halloween celebration at home for your little ones!

I ordered some decorations from Party City and quickly got to work. I wanted the party area to have lots of depth and layers, so I ordered chargers, dinner plates, and dessert plates to layer on the table. Each place setting was finished with a cute Halloween cupcake, polka dot napkins, and a plastic cup. Since each place setting had a sweet treat already, I used Halloween gingerbread houses as a centerpiece.

Then, I filled the fireplace hearth with fresh pumpkins and gourds, and fun paper lanterns. I even filled our firewood bucket with pumpkins and tiny black and white Halloween ornaments.

I decorated the mantel top with cauldrons and sparkling pumpkins, and I hung the cutest vintage style Halloween cat below the mantel. The corners of the mantel were the perfect place for paper rosettes.

Finally, I used some fun polka dot ribbon to hang a pull string pumpkin piñata.

This little party set up took less than 40 minutes to set up, and is sure to delight little ones of all ages!
