Jagger's party is going to be a Halloween themed costume party. I absolutely love Halloween! It's one of my favorite holidays, and I am so beyond psyched to plan this party and go all out with decorations and all that!
The first order of business is the theme. Since I've decided on what I want it's time to pick the decorations, plates, cups and all that good stuff. For this I did an extensive search of the interwebs, and this is what I have come up with!
Meet The Boo Bunch!
You can check out the full selection of Boo Bunch decorations and party supplies here! I am getting both of these and these plates, cups, napkins, table cloth, door cover, this banner, the cupcake tower, these edible images and this banner which will say Happy First Birthday Jagger!
For the treat bags I have a plan and that plan is to buy some trick or treat bags from the dollar store with monster faces on them, Dracula, Frankenstein, witches and mummies. I will be putting the kids names on their bags, and it will be filled with some really cool toys and lots of traditional Halloween goodies. I'm going to sit up stations around the yard, the house and my neighbors yard where the kids can go "trick or treating" and get candy for their bag, candied apples and all that good stuff. Then the last stop on the mini trick or treating excursion will be a table set up to where all the kids get to design their very own mask. I like crafts, and wanted to include that. There will be glitter, feathers, beads, rhinestones, glue, glitter glue, crayons, markers, shapes and stincels and they will be able to decorate their own mask for their bags as well! They are also getting these tattoos, these erasers, these yo yo's, these magnets. They're also getting a couple other Boo Bunch things, as well as their very own plastic kids cups to take home that are super cute that I already picked up. They will also be taking home these masks as well and their own cupcake in one of these Cupcake boxes!
After the trick or treating and the mask making is over the kids will be having a Halloween Parade around the yard and the adults will be "judging" their costumes and they will be winning prizes for their costumes. Each child will win for something, since we're making it up as we go and will be taking home their own trophy as well as a giant classic lolli pop for winning!
Now, onto the food. We will be having two different kinds of punch with hand shaped ice cubes that will be tinted to a slight green color made with rubber gloves and green food coloring. There will be at least 3 cakes at the party. The regular Birthday Cake. Jagger's smaller birthday cake which I will be making for him, it's a home made carrot cake. Then there will be this cake there as well:
There will also be a Frankenstein cake in the same fashion of the Bride of Frankenstein cake. There will be cupcakes as well, with various kinds of decorations on them. I'm getting both kinds of the Boo Bunch cupcake picks, and then my bestie Ali and I are going to be doing these cupcakes as well:
|Dracula and Mummy Cupcakes!|
Before the kids leave we've got one more craft for them to do. Making their own Halloween treat bags, which will be filled with cookies, cupcakes and other treats before they go home!
As far as invitations go, I will be making my own. We're also buying the Boo Bunch bean bag toss game for the kids to play, as well as pin the tail on the black cat game! We'll be getting tons of balloons and filling them with helium for the kids to all take one home, as well as getting the Boo Bunch paper lanterns to hang outside and a bunch of the ceiling decorations! There will be lime green, black, orange and purple streamers and all kind of other Halloween decorations around the house and in the yard.
