Halloween Party Invites
The theme of our party revolved around a "Boo Crew" full of ghosts, Frankensteins, mummies, and monsters.
To set the stage for the party, I designed some simple Halloween party invites, which include an image of our Frankenstein, as well as the bright, fun shades of green, purple, and orange that were used throughout the party.
These invites are printable, and available in our shop. Simply pay one low price and print as many invitations as you'd like!
Or, for an even better deal, our "Boo Bash" collection includes these cute little invites, as well as all of the matching party goods that were used
throughout the party, all for 50% off what it would cost to buy everything separately!
Decorating for this party was so much fun!
Paper fans from Party City in colors that matched our scheme were used to decorate the backdrop of our food table.
For the center of the dining table, I created a "spooky pumpkin patch" multi-purpose centerpiece.
Not only did this DIY Halloween centerpiece add character to the table, it also served as a cupcake and favor holder.
Orange "pumpkin" cupcakes sat on wooden pedestals that were adorned with curly green ribbon that looked like vines.
Beneath the pumpkins, lollipop ghosts sat in the patch, while paper bats danced on wire all through the patch.
Each kiddo got to take a cupcake and a lollipop home with them as part of their party favors.
No Halloween party is complete without pumpkins, so of course we had to use them in our decor!
We used them along with fall leaves and ghourds to complete our look.
A party banner with our "Boo Crew" accented our fireplace and tied everything together nicely.
Our fun Halloween party games kept the kiddos happy and entertained.
I attached two witch's brooms together to create a limbo stick, and the kids did the limbo as Michael Jackson's "Thriller" played in the background.
Embroidery hoops wrapped with Halloween fabrics made the perfect rings, and the kids played Witch Hat Ring Toss.
I used paper to create a jack-o-lantern face on an orange bucket, and used it for a Halloween bean bag toss game.
The kiddos really raked in the goodies at this party!
After each game that we played, the kids got to choose prizes from our prize bucket.
I decorated black bags with ribbon and rick rack to mimic the design on our party invitations. A favor tag and personalized name tag (both available in our Boo Bash printable collection) hung from each bag, allowing kiddos to keep track of what belonged to them throughout the party.
In addition to the prizes and fun goodies like bubbles, ping pong eyeballs, and pumpkin cups from Party City, here are other Halloween party favors that each child took home:
- Mini candies in custom Boo Bash candy wrappers (available in our shop)
- DIY Frankenstein gumball favors (get the tutorial here)
- Cupcakes from our centerpiece
- Lollipop ghosts from our centerpiece
- A surprise goody bag from our favor tree
Our favor tree simply consisted of branches that we spray painted black and secured in a vase of rocks.
We filled adorable little black and white Halloween bags from Party Patisserie with surprise treats and hung the bags on the tree.
It looked fantastic, added a fun touch to the party atmosphere, and the kids just loved picking their treats off the tree!
The food we served at this party was soooo stinkin' cute!
We carried the "Boo Crew" theme on to our party snacks and it all was a big hit!
Here's what was on the menu:
- Witch Push-up Pops
- Frankenstein Push-up Pops
- Giant Marshmallow Mummies (made with edible candy eyes from Party City)
- Halloween Snack Mix served in paper cones
- Cheese Stick Broom Sticks (inspired by these)
- Trix Monsters (made with edible candy eyes from Party City)
- Monster Veggie Cups
- Sunflower Seed Monsters (made with purple candy stick hair and ping pong eyeballs, served in Kiwi bowls...all from Party City)
- Witch's Brew Punch
- Water Bottles with Custom Boo Crew Bottle Labels (available in our shop)
We loved how our "spooky pumpkin patch" centerpiece turned out so much that we decided to carry the idea over to our cake.
Cute ghosts and friendly black cats dance on a Halloween orange background, beneath a little pumpkin patch that sits on top of the cake.
I used a simple vanilla cake mix for the cake, and tinted the batter with some green coloring gel before baking.
When we cut into the cake, everyone was super excited to see that the cake was colored!
I'd like to take a quick moment to thank Party City for their generous donations to our party!
