Boys Club Halloween Party

On Wednesday, we celebrated Halloween with Little Man's Boys Club.  We have a really fun group of boys--all who live within 5 minutes of our house.  Besides going to church together, these boys will all be in the same grade at school. Every Wednesday, we rotate houses, and the boys play together.  This has been SO good for Little Man to learn social skills and have a group of friends he feels comfortable with.

I have always wanted to throw a Halloween party, so this was the perfect opportunity!  We had such a great time with these cute boys.  Of course I took too many pictures, and I can't narrow down my favorites, so bring on the photo overload:

 

We drew some faces on thsee balloons to make them look like jack-o-lanterns, tied them to some baby jars full of candy corn, and created some easy centerpieces!  Each boy took home a balloon as a favor at the end of the party.

 

I used some happy polk-a-dot wrapping paper as a table runner...

 

Little Man picked out some Halloween fabric at JoAnn's, and I sewed 4 easy chair covers for our chairs.

This adds such a festive touch--I think I'll do the same for every holiday!

 

Sweet hubby got up early to pick up some orange helium balloons. Thanks babe! 🙂

 

Each boy had a chalkboard bat with his name written on it for their place setting.

Before eating lunch, they created jack-o-lantern faces with orange paper plates and sticky foam.

 

As the boys arrived, they played with ghost balloons.

The Countdown Is On to Halloween!

There is just one week left until Halloween.

Are you ready?

We have our costumes, and our candy is prepared for the trick-or-treaters.  This week we are gearing up for a fun Halloween party for Little Man's friends.  I can hardly wait!  We have some fun games and treats in mind for these little friends.  Stay tuned for more details on that later this week!

This year, I have had tons of fun decorating our house inside and out for Halloween.  I am not a huge fan of the gory, gothic parts of Halloween.  I like the fun parts of the holiday!  This year, I have really been into black and white.  And also glitter.  And also sweets.  (That is pretty typical no matter what time of year!)

 

Here are just a few ways that Halloween has crept its way into our home:

I made these fun glittery B-O-O plaques to hang in my living room.  I love those blinged-out letters!

Our Halloween advent calendar has been getting plenty of good use!

Little Man won't let me forget that he needs a piece of candy every morning right after breakfast as we count down the days to Halloween.

 

I added some festive candy corn to my DIY mason jar apothecary jars.

I'm not even a huge candy corn fan, but lately I find them irresistible when they're just sitting there on my counter!
