Happy Halloween! // Blush Costume Party

Halloween has always been a favorite holiday, but I love it even more being a mom. The magical spookiness that lingers all of October is the perfect way to transition into fall + the holidays. This year, my husband worked on Halloween, so I wanted a way to celebrate with him home. We decided to have our very first costume party! Being a girl mom with two toddlers, I wanted to create a spooky but happy/whimsical feel. I found some inspiration through Lauren Conrad‘s recent party, and because we believe in all things pink for every holiday this was perfect.

For this balloon garland, I purchased 5″ and 11″ blush/nude + coral solid balloons from Etsy. The star, moon and ghost face balloons are all Meri Meri. I tied all of the solid balloons to a single string, and then hung with command hooks. I used tacky glue dots to stick the other balloons to the wall and garland itself. I recommend creating your balloon garland no sooner than the night before your event to ensure it’s full!

 

All of the paper products are from Meri Meri, my favorite go-to for party supplies. The spider web table runner was a great Target dollar spot find. My purple stemless wine glasses are from Home Goods, the candlestick holder and macrame table runner is from Anthropologie.

 

 

This bar cart c/o Anthropologie is the most fun to decorate! I found Halloween inspired bottles of wine + liquor from World Market. I spray painted styrofoam tombstones pink, it’s definitely not a party unless SOMETHING is spray painted 😉 Tinsel stir sticks from Etsy, left over balloons from the garland in the bottom and fresh florals on top!

 

Easy + festive is my favorite, and these treats didn’t disappoint! For the ghosts, I cut Milano cookies with a scalloped vegetable knife, and then dipped them in melted white chocolate. You’ll want to be sure to let the white chocolate cool a bit first so it doesn’t melt the inside of the cookie. I used black royal icing for the face. For the donuts, I used strawberry Hostess mini donuts decorated with black royal icing.

 

 

Mummy pretzels stick are pretzel rods dipped into melted white chocolate, I used these dipping containers from Wilton and they made it so easy. I pressed eyes into the chocolate and then let them cool. I then drizzled more white chocolate for the mummy effect.

 

 

We opted out of a family costume, and just paired up for some favorite characters. My cat suit, ears + mask and Randy’s batman shirt (runs big) are from Amazon.

Chloe and her friend made Winnie the Pooh costumes, Piglet showed up later! Tutus and tees are from Amazon.

Stella requested Cinderella, and Harlow made the cutest Gus Gus. Their tutus are c/o Plum, Stella’s peplum top is c/o June & January, her headband is Wunderkin Co. and choker is from Etsy. Harlow’s tee is from Amazon and Gus Gus ears are c/o The Wishing Elephant.

Hope you + your family had the most magical Halloween!
