Hauntingly Good Halloween Decorating Ideas #HalloweenHangout {Giveaway}

While my girls seem confident, self-assured and outgoing, show them a spooky scene and they will run in the opposite direction.  Needless to say, this provides a challenge at Halloween time especially as my daughters are getting older and more of their friends are starting to embrace the scary side of Halloween.  My solution?  Throw a Perfectly Pumpkin Happy Halloween party! Here’s how:

Setting the stage for your Halloween Party is incredibly easy with the help of Personal Creations, Shari’s Berries and ProFlowers.  I put together items from each of the stores to create a completely non-scary but festive party for my girls.

Starting from the outside in, ProFlowers helped to decorate my front door with this beautiful Fall Flower wreath.  The colors are just perfect and welcome my guests without scaring them.  The wreath was packaged very well and arrived in great condition.  I love the look of the wreath which is a great size for my door and the personalized bat family door mat added a special touch.

This is the main stage (aka my kitchen table)!  I will admit that I never would have thought to decorate a Halloween party with fresh flowers, but I fell in love with this Boo-kay from ProFlowers. The black thistles, orange tulips, and bat detail made the perfect centerpiece when placed on a glittery spiderweb!  Plus, we will be handing out candy in style with the handpainted treat bowl.

What’s a Halloween party without sweet treats, right? Shari’s Berries had me totally covered in this department.  From gourmet dipped strawberries to nutter butter ghosts, my girls had smiles from ear to ear.  But their absolute favorite was the adorable handmade Halloween Cake Pops which come in cats, mummies and pumpkins individually wrapped making these perfect for classmate gifts.  The chocolatey center was divine! To round out my Halloween party, I served some Franken-pudding (recipe coming soon!).

With all this food, you need a festive way to serve it!  My kitchen was bewitched with a personalized towel and serving dish from Personal Creations.  I love that the serving dish is hand-painted which gives it such a crafty feel keeping with my non-scary Halloween party.

A really fun way to serve your “witches brew” is in this personalized beverage bucket.  Kick it up a notch by hiding rubber eyeballs and glow sticks in the ice!

Looking for something whimsical?  I love the personalized gingerbread haunted house.  And if pictures on my blog could be scratch and sniff, you would never leave!

Don’t forget about the rest of the house!  I love decorating my mantle for the changing seasons and Halloween is no exception.  The pumpkin from Personal Creations gave it the perfect personal touch this year along with my daughter’s handmade ghost.

Last but not least, it’s time to go Trick or Treating!  I love that these treat bags glow in the dark to provide an added layer of safety while navigating dark streets with Mom and Dad.  Even our brand new dog, Lucy is ready to get in the spirit with her personalized pumpkin dog costume.

  2. So, so cute Bridgette! I love the eye balls and glow sticks in the drink container!

  3. My favorite Halloween Memory was when i was around 6 or 7 and dressed as the hulk, even though I was a girl. I was such a tom boy.

  4. D SCHMIDT says:

    My favorite memory is bobbing for apples at a family Halloween party as a child.

  5. My son dressing up and going trick or treating for the first time. It was such a good time and he was adorable!

    It’s a tradition to go to Pumpkinville and pick out pumpkins, eat cider and donuts, check out the shops and do the corn maze each year! Have been going ever since i can remember

  7. My favorite Halloween memory is my son’s first Halloween. He looked so adorable in his little Tigger costume that I think I took about 100 pictures!

    One of my favorite Halloween memories is dressing up as a red crayon that my mother created for me and winning first place at a costume contest. Thanks.

  9. My favorite memory is of the Halloween costume party we had. The costumes were great, the food was themed, and the games were so much fun.

  10. Melissa S says:

    My favorite Halloween memory is when my mother not only gave in but made me a batgirl costume.

  11. nannypanpan says:

    the first time we took my son trick or treating..he thought he just went to neighbors to sit on their stoops like he does at home. best memory

  12. I loved the year my daughter went as a care bear and my niece was a devil…they looked so cute together

  13. It would have to be when I was about 10 or 12 years old. My mom said I was getting too old to trick or treat, but said she’d take me, on our four wheeler, just around to the immediate neighbors. We weren’t prepared for the 40 or so inches of snow that got dropped on us that day, so the four wheeler ended up getting stuck and all I made it to were two houses. Both people gave me all their candy though because they said they weren’t getting any other trick or treaters because of the weather. It was awesome!
