So a few weeks back, I made some Halloween invitations with PicMonkey. I love that website! They have fun themes to use and I chose the "trick or treat" theme since it wasn't too spooky for the kiddos. Before I created the invite, I checked with the teacher if it was ok to send Jack to school with the invites to put in the other kids folders. Once I got the green light, I prayed all 23 kids didn't RSVP yes! (KIDDING NOT REALLY)
We had a fantastic turn out and any more it would have been too much. My goal was the kids eat, carve pumpkins and play games! I had plans to do the games outside, but it was rainy and cold, so we moved the games to our basement! I was in charge of pizza and dessert, the other moms brought appetizers and juice boxes. My Mother-in-law was awesome and brought the games! The kids loved it. It was a team effort and such fun!
For desserts, I made cupcakes and used cookies to look like graves, and wrote "RIP" and "BOO" with black icing. I bought this cupcake set off of Etsy and have always been such a huge fan of Meri Meri products, especially the cupcake kits! The monster stand was a steal for $5 at Target!
this banner from Etsy as well to hang outside, but since I ran out of time to string it together, I took pieces of it and taped it to the walls...bada boom bada bing. When Jon came back with the pizza, we put it on the stove top. Pizza is fast and easy and barely any pick up. I also grabbed the "Halloween grave" sign and "31" sign from the Target dollar bin as well. Both were only $3 each and excellent quality.
