I have decided to embrace the Halloween birthday and go full out on the theme, at least for the first few years anyway. Last year, the kids came in costume, we went on a pumpkin hunt around the yard and then they decorated the pumpkins with stickers. This year we were going to have a Halloween parade down the street, do some pumpkin decorating (this time paper pumpkins) and enjoy some yummy treats. Our power went out the morning of the party and was due to come back on at some point during the 2 hour party. We had gotten the house and treats ready the night before so we were set regardless. At the last minute we went with it anyway...
Here are a few of the cute things that we made for the party.
These witch hats are Keebler fudge stripe cookies, orange frosting and a Hershey kiss on top. So simple and so easy! I found both recipes on this great blog. I Heart Naptime has a ton of great ideas.
|I forgot to take a picture of the whole tray of them. They looked much cuter all together. This one just looks pitiful all alone.|
