{Party Themes} Halloween Party

Hello dear friends,

Today I’m going to feature my Halloween Party.

On a personal note, my sweet mother is very ill and I have been by  her side in the hospital.  I’m home momentarily to gather my things and head back to her. Luckily I have 3 sisters and 1 brother who are spending time with her as well in the hospital. I’m dropping in to explain to you, my dear followers.  Thank you for understanding!♥

Hope you enjoy my Black & White Halloween from a couple of years ago.

I began by painting my pumpkins black and added the white polka dots.  Then for a huge splash of color I made the 2 color tissue poms. DIY here

Fun chalkboard glasses I purchased at Pier One  two years ago and they still sell them.

Next I made my burlap BOO banner and black & white polka dot treat bags. (these are both available in my Etsy. click here and here.

I love witches shoes and made the invites and the cards in the popcorn,  for added decor.

Using a rubber stamp, markers, cardstock and Presto.  For added cuteness I made a witch broom. Tooth pic and a little thread embellishment did the trick. (front side)

Next I made the cupcakes. Added purple stars that I cut out from taffy.(the color purple didn’t show up here in the photo. Much prettier in person) I love to add gumballs for added interest and pops of color. An little orange tutu helped highlight the cupcakes on the table and again gave it added interest.

Little ghosts I made by rolling out fondant draping it over marshmallows.

Black licorice helped to make this table complete when I made these scary trees.

{DIY} Tissue Paper Flower Runner

When I was busy pinning the other night I found this great DIY  from Lisa Storms  for Fiskars that I wanted to share with you.

It’s a Tissue Paper Flower and Paper Runner.

Isn’t it pretty?

I love to make Tissue Paper Flowers and  there are so many color options you have with tissue paper.

This idea can be used in so many ways and for many different occasions.

One idea would be for Mother’s Day or a Tea Party.

Picking up vintage tea cups at flea markets is always so much fun and so affordable.

Wouldn’t they look great on the table?

You will need to buy a few paper punches for this project but I think you’ll use them again.

I have used mine several times.

Hope you enjoy this project and have some fun with it. I know I will.
