All Brady’s little friends went off to different preschools this year. In an attempt to get the whole four-year-old gang back together for some fun, we’re throwing a little Halloween party with some super easy snacks and some of our favorite Mud Pie decor. I’m really excited to partner with Mud Pie this holiday season to bring you some of my favorite products of theirs and share some quick and simple holiday ideas.
Before I jump in to our Halloween Party ideas, I want to brag on Mud Pie a bit. I’ve loved their brand for eons. Literally. They make #allthecutethings: the cutest kids clothes (and women’s clothes!), the most adorable holiday decorations, great tailgating / college football products and so many fun pieces for the kitchen. I could go on and on, but their brand is one I seek out when I’m looking for picture outfits or decor pieces. When they approached me about working on a few posts together, I jumped out of my chair! EL + MP = BFF.
Back to Brady’s Halloween extravaganza, I’m not the craftiest person in the world, so I scoured Pinterest boards for the easiest, cutest little snack and favor ideas for B’s party and just love these two.
EYEBALL POPCORN CUPS
How fun is this! I gave B a bottle of tacky glue (yes, he made an enormous mess), some googly eyes and some little white cups (ordered them all on Amazon!) and he went to town. We made a few example cups for these photos to show you how they’ll come together – add a bit of popcorn mixed with melted white chocolate chips and edible eyes! So fun! See the entire how-to on Pizzazzerie’s blog!
BAT FAVOR BOXES
We hit the Target Dollar Spot and bought some gemstone spider rings, fake mustaches and stickers to pop inside these bat boxes. I ordered the pillow boxes and black card stock from Amazon and used leftover googly eyes from our popcorn cups. They turned out adorable! See the entire how-to on Tonya Staab’s blog.
For decor, I’m trying to focus on large statement items (giant three foot spider, anyone?) and purposeful things (like towels, etc) rather than small knick-knacks. My favorite Halloween decor pieces this year are:
- Our giant spider from Target (yes, I’m terrified of spiders – no, I’m serious – and it took me a while to get used to this, but Brady thinks its the coolest thing ever).
- This Witch Hat Table Runner from Mud Pie. Such a cute piece! I have it on our kitchen table with a few white and gold pumpkins from Home Goods and Target.
- These Witch Leg Hand Towels. Loving this cute theme. Reminds me of The Wizard of Oz.
- And these adorable Witch Hat Door Hanger wreaths! I love a cute wreath! I’m not as crafty as my Mom and sister in law who can make these adorable things themselves. So in our attic, I used command hooks to put all our wreaths up on the wall for safekeeping. I change them out a few times a year for the holidays. Our doors are tall, so we used suction cups to keep them up. Easy peasy!
