Halloween Party Details

Since Halloween fell on a Saturday this year, I felt it was only right to throw a Halloween Party!  The first thing I did was send out an Evite for our immediate family.  I then went to my local Dollar Tree to buy the decorations.  I literally spent less than $20 on plates, napkins, serving patters and bowls, and decor.  I then planned out the menu and activities for the kids listed below.  I had apps out when everyone arrived.  We then went out trick or treating as a group which was super fun. When we got back, the kids did their candy exchange and then we played Halloween Bingo.  I then brought out desserts which gave everyone the sugar rush they needed for the dance off.  We then ended the night with a showing of NIghtmare Before Christmas.  It was amazing to see our daughter have such a great time with her little cousins. Definitely consider throwing your own Halloween Party or even a birthday themed costume party. It’s super easy and eerily fun!  Happy Halloween!
