Halloween is just around the corner, so we thought we would share a cute kid’s Halloween party we styled and coordinated last year for a client. We kept the theme and color palette very traditional with orange, black, and added pops of gold. Since it was an afternoon party we decided to decorate the pumpkins with paint and Sharpie Oil- Based Paint Markers, instead of the traditional carved pumpkins.
By mixing large and small pumpkins in different sizes we tried to create a mini modern pumpkin patch. We bought hay bales from Michaels to help with the concept.
No Halloween party is complete without adorable costumes, so we set up a “Photo BOO-th Station” using a side table, a backdrop stand, and ironically a clothe shower curtain (we got creative). 😉
We spray painted a magnet board, added a ghost “Share Your Scare” sign, and attached Halloween themed clothespins with magnetic backings so guests could take Polaroids and display them.
We then made festive Halloween prop selection of mustached, vampire teeth, and other costume accesrrories.
For activities, we put together the “Photo BOO-th Station,” as well as a bubble station outside. This was a party for younger kids (ages 1-3), so bubbles are always a fun activity that’s not too structured, and can entertain kids for hours.
This next activity was our favorite! We bought a wooden cornhole game from Target, painted it, and made it a “Candy Cornhole” Halloween themed game.
We decorated the front patios greenery with fake spider webs, and set out the “BOO Bubble Station” and “Candy Cornhole.”
The “Candy Cornhole” was also a great way to get the Dad’s involved in the activities. We spray painted the bean bags black and orange to match the set.
As you and your families prep for a very Happy Halloween, we hope it’s full of fun treats for kids of all ages!
