Tomorrow I’m hosting a Halloween party/play group for my daughter and her friends and I wanted to quickly share the activities we are going to do. These would be perfect for a family Halloween party, a preschool Halloween party or even a younger Elementary school Halloween party. They are easy to put together, don’t cost much at all and will keep the kids so happy! I think they would be perfect to do as a family after school so your kids aren’t itching to go Trick-or-Treating at 4:00 pm. 🙂
So, here we go – some really EASY HALLOWEEN GAMES to add to your weekend festivities!
My son is so in love with the Peanuts Movie and LOVES Snoopy, so as his second birthday approached I knew I wanted to have a Peanuts birthday party. Hold on tight, I usually separate these posts since they are so photo heavy, but I’m combining all of the Peanuts birthday party ideas I used into one giant post today!
I’m excited to share with you my Halloween porch decorations this year. In years past, I’ve just focused on my front door (see my Skeleton, Frankenstein and Spider’s Web doors that are super easy DIY projects), but this year I wanted to decorate my entire front porch. I was inspired by the severed fingers I made last year to do a Witches theme and I think it turned out awesome!
I got a few new pieces to amp up my decor from the Halloween section of Oriental Trading and they were perfect! I still got to do a little bit of DIY crafting, but these pieces saved me a ton of time and look great!
This My Little Pony Party was so much fun to plan, mostly because my daughter was so dang excited for every detail of it. She and I would sit together and browse all the fun ideas on Pinterest and the party practically planned itself! With 12 little friends coming to the party, I knew that it needed to be simple enough that I could manage it all myself. In the end, the My Little Pony Party Games we did were a huge hit!
For my daughters 5th birthday she was so excited to have a My Little Pony Birthday party! I searched the internet for great My Little Pony party ideas and found so many that it made putting this party together super easy. Now, you know I love to get my DIY on when it comes to the decorations, but I’ve been really sick with my pregnancy so this party was all store-bought – and honestly, it turned out so great. My daughter kept saying, “ADORABLE!” as I was setting up the decorations the night before, so I knew I was on the right track!
The first was Advice Cards. To help it fit with the Vintage Airplane theme, I ordered these Vintage Postcards on Amazon and asked guests to fill in advice to the new mom on them and slip them into the cute little suitcase. This was something that the guests could do while they mingled and it was helpful to the mom!
Last Saturday I had the pleasure of helping host a Vintage Airplane Baby Shower for my beautiful niece Alix. I am so excited for her and it was so much fun to put this shower together for her and her sweet baby boy!
This Chinese Chicken Salad is always a BIG hit at any event I bring it to. It’s the perfect salad for a Ladies Lunch, Bridal Shower or Baby Shower. In fact, the first time I made this for a baby shower, me and two of the others hosting the shower each brought 2 salads to make a little salad buffet and this was the first salad to be gone because people LOVED IT!
