I am taking a break on baby/newborn postings for a bit to showcase some Halloween fun! If you know me, you know that I’m a Halloween fan. What’s not to love about creative foods, crafting costumes, and using your noggin for fun ideas! When I first met my husband, he said it was weird for people to decorate for Halloween. Clearly he didn’t know me at all, because THAT’S WHAT I DO! Now that we’ve been married for 4.5 years, he appreciates this “holiday” a bit more. Goal complete.
We hosted a Halloween party last night on Hallow’s Eve for friends. A baby doesn’t change the fact that this holiday must call for a gathering. Crafted Halloween decor. Themed pot luck foods. Mandatory costumes. Success!
Just take a look at these amazing pictures. And of course, I have some new food ideas to share with you.
First the family costumes:
Right above my TV, I added floating candles this year! Here’s a great tutorial from Consumer Crafts. Instead of toilet paper rolls, I rolled up craft paper.
Now for the food ideas!
And how about these delicious mummy potatoes!
And you cannot forget:
My favorite new item that I made this year was the jar of eyeballs. So much fun and easy to do. Here’s the tutorial:
What you need: Jar, Can of Lychee, and Boba
- Drain the can of lychee into the glass jar
- Take out each lychee and stuff with boba
- Place the “eyeball” into the glass jar
- Fill the remaining jar up with water
- Create a label, display, and eat!
Easy and fun right? Now tell me, what are you doing this Halloween?
Sending haunts your way,
