I don’t remember ever going to a Halloween party. I certainly never hosted one. But I have a rule in my head – if the little one asks for something I will always think about it before I answer. I will make sure my answer is based on the right thing for her rather than for me.
About a week ago the little one asked if we could have a Halloween party. I thought about it and asked everyone what they thought. The consensus was to go for it. And I have a good friend that has done Halloween parties that was more than happy to help out.
So I invited her closest friends by talking to the parents. I didn’t want her to go to school and invite some and not others and have everyone fall out with her.
In the end 8 kids turned up which was perfect.
I put everything into the food and decorations. I started the party at 5 so it would be dark already. Unfortunately that meant I couldn’t easily take photos of the decorations!
We all got dressed up
And I got loads of spooky food done. All Gluten free
I think it was safe to say they enjoyed the food…
The lounge was set up with the disco light bulb and the monster party mix was playing through the amp
The kids spent most of the party dancing. But we did have some games in between. We head dress the mummy, musical zombies and vampires, apple bobbing and decorate the satsumas
This is Dress the Mummy
And this is them having fun with the left over toilet roll. Amazingly I managed to get them all to clear it up after!
All in all I don’t think the party could have gone any better.
