A Pinterest Inspired Halloween Party… in August

Last week we decided to throw together a little “party” for Kennedy and a couple of her friends. It was a good way to keep them occupied and happy for an afternoon, and since her friends agree that Halloween is the most exciting thing ever and it’s totally appropriate to do Halloween crafts 2 and a half month early. That’s exactly what we did.

Straight to Pinterest I went! Suddenly I looked like the funnest mom ever. Ha! Got them fooled!

Do you recognize which ideas are the popular Pinterest ideas?

Right. All the good ones.

The soda bottle Jack O Lantern is originally from here.

The fruit cup Jack O Lantern idea is originally from here.

The cute marshmallow ghost bowl is from here.

Gummy bears on a stick. Ooooo. Scary!

We decorated up the dining room to set the mood, but honestly it turned out pretty terrible other than this crepe paper in the arches. A good test run for the real deal. Now I know what not to do.

Of course the whole point of the afternoon was to do some Halloween crafts with the kids.

More Pinterest favorites were done of course. Maybe we’ll save that Halloween overload for another day, closer to the actual holiday.

I think three Halloween posts in a row in August are probably enough, don’t you?

    Those poor gummy bears! Great party. My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
