I don’t do birthday parties for my kids every year because it consumes me. I had so much fun planning this party, I have wanted to do a Halloween party for quite awhile. The photo booth was a big hit. I bought the tent from amazon. It didn’t get the best reviews but it was inexpensive and it was perfect for a photo booth. I designed the halloween backdrop and sell it at pepperlu.I got the printer and paper from amazon. It was great. I just hooked it up to my camera and printed them right there for the kids. I had pre-made the cards that I taped them to.
The next big hit was the pumpkin station. I didn’t want to do pumpkin carving because it would be way to much work and way to messy. This nuts and bolts idea was perfect. I found some of the old nuts and vintage bottle caps from etsy. And some I found a refurbished hardware stores. I pre painted some of the pumpkins with silver, metallic and gold spray paint. Then the kids did the rest! I stored the nuts and bolts in an old letter press drawer that I found on Etsy as well.
I got a lot of the decor from the line meri meri. Or Evans gate house. I made the garland from tissue paper. There are a ton of tutorials and youtube videos. Or you can click here.
