A few photos of the decor we did for the costume party. Chrysi had the great idea to do a fall-ish, pumpkin theme, so I went and got some felt and decided to recreate that candy corn banner that I saw on Etsy the other day. It was such a simple project – all I did was cut up the felt into triangles and I used fabric glue to adhere it all. It was a good naptime project while Jude was sleeping.
With the leftover felt, I glued it all end-to-end, and then cut a scallop design, making a fun little runner (shown below). Ok, and aren’t those black rats hilarious? They were sticky – the kids had a lot of fun with them!
And what’s a fall costume party without a bunch of pumpkins? For $10, I bought 2 bags of small pie pumpkins and I had the idea that for the activity for the kids, we could decorate them. Kind of like Mr. Potato Heads. Except Mr. Pumpkin Heads. I bought a bunch of googly eyes, feathers, pompoms, glitter glue, and stickers and let the kids have at.
Couldn’t resist a few owls or funkins, either. 🙂 I glittered a Funkin for my mom with a big “D” on it.
Yay yay yay! Here’s my candycorn banners. I’m totally in love with them.
In Mom & Dad’s living room. Their house looked so pretty and we were SO thankful that they let us have the party there!
Chrysi’s amazing pumpkin cupcakes! They were decorated gorgeously, and the cupcake itself was pumpkin and chocolate chips. I think these are my newest faves.
I brought over my Martha Stewart trick or treat banner from my mantle.
Oops, here’s the owls again.
I totally forgot to take pictures of the favors we did. Chrysi found these cool little buckets in the dollar spot area at Target and filled them with all kinds of goodies and some glow sticks.
Hilarious photo of my folks wearing the kids’ wigs.
Enjoying cupcakes. That’s Carolyn on the left – she’s ready to have that baby!
First round of “Happy Birthday” – to Noah!
Lighting the candles
When it was Jude’s turn to be sung to, he lit up like Christmas morning. It was absolutely precious.
Finally, in memory of my Grandmother Blanche, we of course had to have her popcorn balls. I love to make them every year at this time. I miss you, Grandmother! You would have loved this party!
