Michelle's Party Plan-It: House of Spooks Halloween Party

House of Spooks Halloween Party

October is my favorite month of the year and Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! Since Halloween falls on a school night this year, a House of Spooks Halloween party for my sons and nieces was in order.



The Decor:

My youngest son is almost 3 and is now totally aware of the "Spookies" so I decided to go cutesy instead of scary for the little ones. My inspiration for the theme was this Haunted House I picked up at Costco. I decided to keep a modest budget for this party since we had 3 birthday parties in the last several weeks and still have another birthday and wedding anniversary to celebrate this month.

I started with my large stash of Halloween decor (which I add to every year the day after Halloween when everything is at least 50% off).  This year, I did find a ton of great items at the Dollar Tree that fit perfectly within my budget and color scheme. I also reused several elements from recent parties such as the tulle backdrop from my Seinfeld party.





LOVE these Haunted House boxes and Tombstones (filled with candy bones) that I found at the Dollar Tree and the little plastic ghosts filler found in the dollar bins at Target.



I made the sign with my Cricut and attached Peeps on to sticks with personalized ribbon I purchased last year from Pick Your Plum. The web "curtains" are actually 2 table runners I picked up last year at Michaels.



These snack cups were also from the dollar bin at Target. What a steal! 10 for $1! I added my tags and filled them with cinnamon popcorn.


The names on the tombstones are hilarious!
Diane Rott, Juan Toomany, Will B. Back, Dr. Acula, Myra Maines and Ima Ghoul. They remind me of the tombstones at the Haunted Mansion ride in Disneyland. :)






The Sweets:
We served several sweets for the sweets.  Velata caramel chocolate fondue with caramel marshmallows, candy corn sugar cookies, mummy brownie pops, cupcakes with witch hat toppers and fondont skulls, and I made a candy corn rice cereal treat bundt "cake".





My sweet friend Jamie whipped up these sugar cookies and brownie pops, aren't they adorable?


Jamie also made these pinterest inspired Witch Hats for the cupcakes.....


 


 

I made these fondant toppers using a silicone skull ice tray I found at the Dollar Tree.


I was going to make some cereal treat candy corns I saw on pinterest, but then I decided to put my own spin on it and and make a cereal treat "cake" topped with shredded coconut. When sliced, it resembled a candy corn.




 
The Party Favors and Activities:
We played Halloween Bowling, Give the Skeleton a Heart, Halloween "Twister", Bingo, Spider Web Darts and Monster Toss. I made the kids their own Trick or Treat Loot Bags which they filled with treats and prizes they won from playing games.




Party Favor goodies and candy purchased from the Dollar Tree, 99 cent store and dollar bin at Target.


Recognize the Monster Toss? It was first used at my son's Monster Bash birthday party. 



One of my favorite moments was watching the kids play a Halloween version of twister.


B-I-N-G-O!



The Food:

We made a Tostada Bar with all the fixings, rice, beans, grape punch, chips and salsa to fill the tummies!




At Nightfall:

Once the sun went down the black lights were turned on and our home became the HOUSE OF SPOOKS.












The little one wanted to change mid-party. :)





It was another great party with wonderful family!

You are amazing! I am 67 now and I had pretty good parties,when I was younger, but I don't know if I ever could have done everything you did.I fell in love with the centerpiece with the house and, somewhere I saw that there were instructions on your blog, but I can't find them. If you could write me at ginnyq2001@yahoo, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much for taking the time to provide us with so much to look at.

Thank you so much! The Haunted House I used as the centerpiece is actually a teal light holder I found at Costco. :) Thanks again for stopping by!
