Halloween Party Ideas
No matter how hard you might try candy and Halloween are inseparable! It’s just not going to change so if you can’t change it, embrace it! That’s exactly what this Frightfully Sweet Halloween Party is all about – sweets!
Frightfully Sweet Halloween Party
This year the party is all about the candy and using some darling Halloween party decor items from Target made it even easier. I love having stations set up where my party guests can make their own sweet treats. The First Sweet Station was the Candy Skewer station and I used these cute little pumpkin placecards for my signage.
How to Make Candy Skewers
I had a great selection of Halloween themed gummy candy,basically anything that could be put onto a bamboo skewer. The trick with the bamboo skewers is to soak them in some water first, and then wipe them off and the sticky candy will slide on much easier.
The kids and adults are going to have a great time putting together their own combinations on their candy skewers. Check out this post on making candy skewers.
Fair warning, not all of the candy will make it onto a skewer!
These cute little treat bags are the perfect way for your party guests to take their sweet treats home in.
They make great decorations for the table too!
Halloween Party Decorations
The Happy Halloween garland is the perfect combination of fun and spook and adds the finishing touch to the backdrop.
Our Second Sweet Station was the Decorate Your Own Donut Station which is always a huge hit with big and little kids.
Pick up some cake donuts from your local donut shop, some canned frosting and then your favorite candy toppings such as M&M’s, candy corn, popcorn and Reese’s pieces. Put a layer of frosting on the donut and then pile on the toppings.
A photo op is always a fun addition to a party. I created this cute and easy backdrop with some cute Halloween paper cut into pennants. You can get directions on how I made something similar here. I purchased the Halloween Paper Stack at Joann Fabric and Craft Store
It made the perfect backdrop for these fun photo booth props.
I always like to let my party guests know they are at the right place with some kind of signage outside the house to welcome them to the party and set the mood before they even enter the house. These Halloween Luminary Bags are the perfect way to welcome your guests.
A Frightfully Sweet Halloween Party is a fun and sweet way to celebrate!
