Most of us in India are in Diwali mode, so are we with our rangoli, sweets and diyas in place. Incidentally, this year the festival of lights is coinciding with Halloween, so we thought to have some spook-tacular fun with kids with our very first Halloween themed play date! With some Pinterest inspiration and lots of imagination, we were all set to welcome kids dressed in myriad Halloween costumes: witches and Goblins for some Tricks & Treats.
Here are some pictures from our bash that may inspire you to host your own Halloween party!The inviteThe invite was designed on Photogrid and sent on WhatsApp and within no time we had the guests coming in!
Bat cut outs made from black craft paper were stuck all around to add to the eeriness.
We turned simple orange and white balloons into ghosts by painting them with black marker – quick, simple and quite spooky!
Would you believe that this spider web is made out of those black garbage bags? Check out the tutorial here, they are really simple to make!
The Jacko-Lantern sticker was purchased from a local store.
Combined together the bats, balloons, web and the sticker was a perfect backdrop for the kids to pose!
A Halloween party is incomplete without treats and we have them a plenty! Lollypops were converted into cutesy ghosts by wrapping them in white coloured crepe paper. You can see the tutorial here.
A dear mommy made these yummuliscious cup cakes frosted with orange fresh cream and chocolate spider webs. They vanished within no time!
How could we let our little devils go back without some favours? So, we packed some candies and gifts as pumpkins!
To keep the tiny witches and fairies engaged, we did face painting and played ‘Passing the Pumpkin’ game. We also threw in some quirky props for lots of photo ops! From witch hats to magic wands to fairy wings to horns to devil ears, we had enough stuff to ensure lots of fun and memories unlimited!
