With Halloween landing on a Friday this year, I've been contemplating having a little halloween party for the kiddies. Boogie has made a couple of close friends at school and I thought it would be fun to let him have a sleep over and let the boys enjoy some spooky fun.
I was trying to come up with some unique ideas and came across Celebrations.com, which has great party ideas and recipes for every occasion. How cute are these?
Use cookie cutters to cut the cheese into festive shapes and add different veggies to make the face.
They also have directions for how to make a jack-o-lantern pizza, pumpkin shaped sandwiches, and a variety of spooky drinks, for the kiddies and adults. (I'm thinking I'd like to try the Garish Ghost-ini.)
I have a little get together for the under 4 crowd with my Mommy's Group on Tuesday and wanted something original for that as well. It's a lunch get together and instead of the usual cookies or cupcakes, wanted to take something healthy. How about these?
These cute critters are made from potatoes and other vegetables and are sure to please.
Whatever your halloween plans are, you can make it a little more special with nifty food, drinks, game and craft ideas at Celebrations.com. I'll be taking lots of pictures and look forward to hearing your stories.
