Our Halloween Party Hits the Suburbs

Every year for the past several years we have hosted a Halloween party. This year was very different because there were children involved, which meant no scary or disgusting details could go into the decorations, food, etc. and we areĀ in the suburbs in a house.Orange and Black Halloween Decorations - the crafty mommy

Each room had a different theme. The entryway had spiders and webs galore, while the living room was all black, white, and orange with pumpkins, my painted funkins, witches hats hanging from the ceiling (my personal favorite), and jack-o-lantern treat bags. The dining room was glitter-themed, with glitter pumpkins, candles, and glitter bats and spiders hanging from the ceiling.

The witch hats were strung from the ceiling on thick white string.

I drew jack-o-lantern faces onto plain orange treat bags and filled them with goodies for little guests.

Mummy Door - the crafty mommy

I bought the spooky eyes at Michael’s and then tore a white bed sheet and wrapped it around our front door to make a mummy.

The front entry was spider themed with a large spider that spanned the entire entryway and miniature spiders and webs everywhere.

Glitter Pumpkins - the crafty mommy

The dining room had a glitter theme. There were store-bought glittered pumpkins, candles, and hanging spiders and bats all in purple, green, and black glitter.

Just one of the cute and festive party goers.
