We purchased a pumpkin for the little Goblins to paint, carve or decorate and they all had a blast doing it. So easy and all the kids and some adults seemed to really enjoy decorating their little guys. We supplied them with paint, glitter, glue, rhinestones, pipe cleaners, fuzzy balls, wiggly eyes, stickers and so much more. There was something from the littlest to the biggest to enjoy.
We were running so behind schedule all day, so I barely got any pictures of all the decorations or the food but I did manage to get a few. We served Pizza, Chik Fil A, PB&J bat and pumpkin sandwiches, caramel apples, 3 different kinds of Cheetos out of a witches cauldron, cheese nips, chips & queso, cookies, cupcakes, cake, juice, CFA sweet tea, orange and purple Crush soda in a glass bottle & candy galore.
I loved the way this little cake turned out. We asked the bakery to put a friendly little spider on it and they did not disappoint. This is a YUMMY new cake place I have found and it is amazing and the best part is their handwriting. Of course I had to put Love The Frazier Four on it.
A party at our house would not be complete without a candy bar. All the kids look for it first thing when they walk into our house for a party (ha ha). Do not worry sweet babies, I am never going to let you down.
Speaking of Trick or Treating, we asked each family to bring a treat to the party to drop in the bucket of all the little goblins and it was a blast. We had all the adults sit around the fence line in a circle in the backyard and the kids went around to each family and yelled, "Trick or Treat". It was so much fun and so cute to watch them all. Of course we had to keep our eyes on the big kids because we found a few trick or treating in the buckets of the little ones. Between the pinata, the back yard and our candy bar each kid left with a TON of candy and goodies and I would not have wanted it any other way. They were all so cute and so appreciative.
I will be posting pictures of our party guest in the next couple days. We think we had about 51 people attend and 27 of those were kiddos. I am thinking we might have to do this every year it was so much fun. I got lots of text after the party thanking us for a good time and saying, "lets do it again". For those of you who could not join us, we missed you and hope to see you soon. We are so incredibly blessed with great friends and family.
I am certain my husband is ready to rest, but I am so ready to take down the orange and black and start putting up the green and red, because Santa Claus is coming to town!
