It’s October, and Halloween is just around the corner!
I don’t know about you, but I just love fall holidays and activities! Halloween is such a fun time for my family, especially the kids. Sometimes we let the kids have all the fun, but adult Halloween parties are also a good time!
A fellow group of bloggers and I had a little “Ghouls Night Out,” that was so much fun! Who says costume parties are only for kids?! It’s nice to be able to let loose a bit, and get out of your comfort zone!
We all arrived in style, making it much more fun and festive to have a costume requirement! It was fun to set the theme with colors and see how creative everyone was with what they came up with!
Be sure to check back for a little more on the costumes from the party. I’m going to share how to throw together a DIY Mary Poppins costume! I will be posting that soon, as well as some of the other ladies!
We each helped out with different portions of the party, making it really easy for it all to come together rather than putting all the load of the work on the hostess.
Sara of Confetti Sunshine designed this sophisticated yet adorably spooky “Ghouls Night Out” Halloween Party invitation! It will be available on her blog if you are looking for a free printable invitation for a future party!
I helped come up with some festive food items for the spread. I made some Halloween Pumpkin Cream Puffs, and some Pumpkin soup with Parmesan “Cobwebs.” (click the links for full recipes, and step by step instructions)
Sandy of Sandy a la Mode put together this spooky Halloween hot chocolate bar with all the fixins. She also is sharing her 10 tips to throwing a Halloween Party on her blog!
With a little help from everyone, the spread looked fabulous, and came together nicely! A perfect “Ghouls” Night Halloween table!
Chelsey of Housewife 2 Hostess had the perfect house to host us! She is a Halloween lover, and had all sorts of spooky decorations! There was even a scary painting in the powder room that talked that took me for surprise! She posted more about her spooky decor over on her blog!
I loved feeling silly again, and having a spooky “Ghouls Night.” It’s fun to shake things up a bit now and again from the norm!
Be sure to check out the other ladies I collaborated with on this fun Halloween Party!
See more of their costumes, crafts, Halloween Decor, DIY’s, and recipes that they prepared for the party on their blogs! We will all be posting over the next little while!
