Toddler Halloween Party

So yesterday...yes actually son had his first ever Halloween party!  It was so much fun to plan and I think the kids had a great time! So here's a realistic, low-budget, toddler Halloween party.

Plates & forks from Target, cups & napkins from Michaels.

At the entry way there were gift bags, foam dollar store grave stones & vinyl on the floor.

The living got a little extra decor like plenty of spider webs, some hanging garland & paper fans, mini pumpkins & we had a game of pin the spider on the web.

So at the party, we decorated cookies, played pin the spider on the web, decorated mini pumpkins with foam stickers, and colored in little canvas Halloween bags.  There were 6 kids (including mine), and I think it was just the right size and by the end of the party I think everyone was best friends!

Trick or Treat Printable

So if you saw my Halloween decor, you'll have noticed my chalkboard.  

I'm a firm believer that everyone should have some type of chalkboard in their home...easy classic decor that can be changed for every holiday! So I took that same design & made it a printable for you to use in your own decor.  
Happy Decorating!

Halloween Decorations

Here's a look at my Halloween decorations this year...and I'm not gonna lie, my favorite part might just be the big eyes behind the picture frame in the gallery wall.  It seriously cracks me up.

Free Printable Halloween Banners

Who's already got their Halloween decorations out?!  Christmas is by far my favorite holiday, but when it comes to amount of decorations I own, Halloween comes in 2nd place.  

These signs were inspired by an image I saw on Pinterest, that sadly wasn't linked.  But I do know they were for a Silhouette projects, but all you need for this version is this: free printable.
Be sure to print them as an 11x17 so they're long enough, cut and attach. BOOM. Instant festive-ness. That's a word, right? It is now.

How to Make a BOO Basket

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. & it's advertisers. All opinions and ideas are mine alone. #BOOItForward #CollectiveBias
This year seems to be flying by, and with Halloween just around the corner I knew I should get a jump on the fun to enjoy all of it! I put together some fun BOO'ing baskets to surprise family & friends with to share the Halloween spirit.  So here's all the info and fun ideas you'll need to make your own!  
Start by gathering your supplies. I went to Walmart to grab some big bags of candy mixes & some cute little sodas. Then go: here to print your the BOO'ing papers to put in your baskets.
Print out the 2 papers, then cut out this "We've been BOO'd sign. Fold the "You've been BOO'd" greeting card (page 2) and tape openings together. Include the card and sign when gifting BOO bundles.
Start with a container.  There's lots of different options to choose from, and most can be purchased for just a dollar or two. Metal baskets, fun fabric containers and a festive sider web bowl.
Choose your filling.  You can use taffy, sparkly balls, shredded paper or just use candy as the filler!
Then gather some fun add-ins.  Little extra things to put in the basket last.  Suckers, a sign, paper straws, glow sticks of fake creepy creatures!
Here are a few baskets I created to give you some ideas for your own BOO'ing fun.

 After you've filled your baskets up, include the papers and door-bell ditch your friends and neighbors with the BOO kit!
