Halloween is typically a busy, busy day for moms. The pre- Halloween costume preparation, the day of school parties and parades, and the afternoon full of trick or treating. By the time dinner rolls around, who has time to pull together a special meal? You ALL do! Our goal is to celebrate family and with these simple ideas, you can do just that!
I like creating a table full of seasonal colors and fall touches. Layering the dinner table with a spider web tablecloth, orange chevron paper placemats, and centerpiece of pumpkins, flowers and candy. Yellow sunflowers add a pop of color, without being too matchy-matchy. Pumpkins covered in glitter add a touch of glam and sparkle, and what kids wouldn’t be exited to see bowls of candy?!
Speaking of candy….carry the theme throughout the placesettings by using a big pumpkin lollipop (we got these from candywarehouse.com) and tie a cute tag with each person’s name on it for a creative placecard.
Delicious sugar cookies from Estelle and June served as dessert…don’t you love those black pumpkins?!
Candy corn-flavored salt water taffy from Candywarehouse.com served as both a dessert on the table for our guests, but also boxed up for a party favor. You can find our cute Halloween gift stickers here.
Stay tuned this afternoon for a creative, simple idea for making Halloween pizzas for your family dinner party!
