This DIY party is sure to make your kids scream—in a good way! The simple details of these decorations and treats will wow your guests of all ages and make this party both easy and affordable.
Not everything has to be black and orange for Halloween. Don’t be afraid to throw in pops of your favorite color or even pastels can make for a unique color palette for fall. You can always incorporate your kids favorite colors or blues and greens for boys.
Balance creepy with cute, but when in doubt always opt for cute. This party idea is perfect for kids of all ages. Bats and ghosts and spiders add the spooky Halloween flair, but the colorful balloons and tassel garland provide balance.
Don’t feel like you have to spend a ton of money to throw a party. While party supply stores offer a lot of Halloween decorations, you can always make them yourself. Tassel garland can be made from strips of tissue paper. The BOO sign—craft paper, paint and yarn. Cake topper? Construction paper and wooden skewers! Set a budget and stick to it. The dollar store is your best friend!
It Takes the Cake
A simple cake with white icing is like a blank canvas waiting to be the centerpiece of any treat table. Halloween candy can be added or DIY cake toppers made from construction paper and wooden skewers. Or why not both?!
Rice Krispies Critters
Who wouldn’t loves these cute critters? Dip Rice Krispies treats (homemade or store bought) into different colors of melted chocolate and decorate with candy eyes—vary the number for fun!
Why reinvent the wheel when it comes to party treats? Yummy store-bought donuts can get a monster makeover with candy eyes and colorful sprinkles. Donuts not your thing? You can do the same with prepackaged cakes or cookies too!
Simple white cups can be transformed into ghosts pretty easily with a black marker. Fill them up with whatever treats you like—or better yet, mix up a few of your favorites for quick and easy snacks that won’t make a mess!
Punch can be messy and kids are always misplacing their drinks. Why not give each guest a take home favor that can serve a purpose at the party? Get some inexpensive, fun containers at the dollar store and paint each guest’s name on the outside. Add fun straws and these ribbons that look like bats for finishing details. Orange soda completes the Halloween look.
