Fun and Simple Halloween Party for Kids

Wanting to make a simple and fun Halloween Party? That is what we did the other day! Millie wanted to have a tea party with her favorite dolls so I decided to make it a girly halloween theme! It was so simple to set up. The adorable Ghost plates, napkins and cups were sent to us from Pom Pom Party shop . I had some little bats and skull rings I picked up at the Dollar Store and purple pompoms that I sprinkled around the table.

Halloween Tea Party

I made a fun Halloween inspired charcuterie board. I used Reese’s Pieces, powdered sugar donuts, brownie bites, bat marshmallows from Walmart (there is no Peeps this year- so finding these was fun!), and Halloween Joe Joe’s from Trader Joes. I used a tupperware lid to make the board. It helps having a lip to hold everything on. I tried to do black and white for the Halloween theme on the board and sprinkle in the colored Reese’s Pieces around to fill in the holes. So simple!

We set up her little table in the yard and had our party!! She couldn’t wait to dig into the donuts! Those are her favorite. This was a simple and fun way to brighten our week. It took no time to set up and was adorable. Her sweet Cuddle and Kind Dolls, Zoe and Chloe, had a great time too!

DIY Colorful Pumpkins

Fall…seems like it’s most people’s favorite time of year. I enjoy decorating for all the holidays but it’s not a secret I don’t really like the browns, tans, oranges that are the popular fall colors. I prefer bright and fun colors! There is NO reason that those colors can’t be on all my Halloween and fall decor!

It is hard to find colorful pumpkins so I decided to make my own. It was cheap and simple. I bought pumpkins at the dollar store and the acrylic paint I already had. I didn’t want them ALL the same so I got a few different sizes and shapes for the pumpkins.

There is two steps for the pumpkins. To start you want to wipe down your pumpkins with rubbing alcohol to get any stuff off. This helps the paint go on better. Trust me. I lay down a large plastic table cloth from the dollar store that I can use a few times for crafts then throw away.

For painting the pumpkins I found that acrylic paint works best. I did it with another paint first on a couple and they didn’t turn out as well. You will need to paint two coats on the pumpkins. That’s it! That’s all you do! Wipe with alcohol then paint! So simple.

You could use any colors you wanted – even if you didn’t want brighter colors. I am going to do larger pumpkins this year! Do you like fall colors or do you prefer brighter?
