Halloween Fun

Happy Halloween! We had a great time and here are a few pictures from our Pumpkin Carving Party...  I kept it very simple this year but wanted to still make it special for the little ones so starting at 9:30 pm the night before the party I made a few last minute decorations.  (The pictures aren't very husband had an "accident" with our camera, so we no longer have one ...tears )
The frame in back was a great frame I picked up at a garage sale for $2, I had a smaller frame from Drew's birthday party that was orange and fit perfectly. I placed in it the great pumpkin my husband made me and it was the perfect backdrop.

I had picked up a few packages of these great Jolee's three dimensional Halloween stickers and was able to use them to make most of the decorations. I love crearting dimension. I added a sticker onto toothpicks to make some great Halloween toothpicks for the appetizers.

To hold the silverware, I spray painted a can orange and tied some ribbon I picked up at the dollar store around the center and topped it off with a spider sticker.

 I made some great food labels the same stickers, scrapbooking paper that I picked up at a garage sale. I got two complete tablets of amazing paper for fifty cents...score! I had some white glitter letters already that I used to create the labels.  To keep with the simplicity, we just picked up a few pizzas, and had some pasta (spider legs), salad and a few appetizers. It was perfect. 
To finish it off, I created some treatbags and cupcake toppers. I used some pumpkin doilies as a garland easy and I left it up for Thanksgiving. :) We played games (apple bobbing, donut eating contest, ping pong ball toss. I found some great spooky eye ping pong balls from the Dollar Store). Finally we carved our pumpkins of course!!!
