Fall is one of my favorite times of year because of all the outdoor activities and of course Halloween! We had a ball planning, coordinating, and designing this Halloween Costume Hayride Party and most importantly the kids had a ball!
I knew right away when I saw Tiny Prints adorable new Costume Hayride Party Invitation that this would be the perfect theme for our Kids Halloween Party!
When designing any party, event or wedding I try to be creative and coordinate the invitation with the theme and/or colors. Not only did Tiny Prints get my creative juices flowing with their Halloween invitation, but they have fun treat bag stickers with kids dressed up in Halloween costumes and Halloween napkins like this Trick or Treat one that I personalized for our party!
Kids parties are one of my favorites to plan and design because you can be so creative and out of the box with the design! Kids also need a fun activity to keep them entertained. Again, playing off the Halloween Hayride Costume invitation, kids ran around the pumpkin patch and had a Halloween costume hayride at Hunter Farms. Pumpkin picking is one of our favorite fall family fun activities, and was perfect entertainment for these little tick or treaters!
Also, be creative in what food you serve to fit your theme. Since this was a Halloween party, we had lots of spooky sweet and savory treats.
Let kids try to serve themselves with easy finger foods and candy scoopers. Kids love to explore and touch EVERTHING! So why not have fun items, that won’t break, for your table décor. Most importantly, let kids be kids! Don’t try to get every photo with kids posed and looking at the camera, but rather doing what kids do best, exploring and enjoying the party! Candid photos always make the best memories!
I hope you enjoyed this Halloween Costume Hayride Party as much as we have! Stay tuned next week for all the fun and easy DIY tutorials from the party just in time for Halloween!
