|lots of treats|
|of course there were cupcakes|
My genie Marina with a cupcake, she didn't need an excuse to play dress up or to eat cupcakes.
My sweet little Mara kitty had a wonderful time and was happy to find a reason to wear her kitty suit. She probably won't take it off until sometime after Halloween.
We also had Oreo Eyeballs, which I made out of Oreo cookie balls with a dab of frosting and an M&M on top. A little crazy looking but very delicious. Who knew you could make eyeballs out of Oreos?
There were also candy gummy worms (my kids favorite). There's always room for gummy candy.
We also had caramel apples drizzled in white chocolate with cute purple striped flags that I made from my coordinating paper.
For a fun Halloween party mix I threw together popcorn, M&M's and candy corn. The salty and sweet combo was perfect. If you ate the candy corn and popcorn together they tasted like caramel corn. Yum. I think the kids just loved having their own little bag to carry around, it didn't really matter what was in it.
I designed some cute napkin ring holders for the occasion.
With the coordinating paper from the party I also created mini banners to accent our table.
For the center piece I used a tree branch from our yard and attached my favorite paper flowers with glue dots. I've seen this on many party sites and have always wanted to try it. The pattern and templates for these flowers and flags can be found in my etsy shop.
I used a bat tissue-paper garland to make our fence look a little spookier. It was super easy to make but very delicate. Yet another Martha Stewart inspired craft that I love. To make these you just draw a bat on a folded set of black tissue paper and cut. Then you unfold the bats and connect the chains together to make one long chain. Very easy and it can be done with any color of tissue paper.
We had such a wonderful time at our Halloween party and I hope there was some little tidbit or idea here that might help you with your own party.
