I love Halloween, to the point where I look forward to it all October. M is starting to love it as much as me and luckily Clara is happy to humour my love of the event. Ever since M was born we agreed that we would throw him a Halloween party for him and his school friends as soon as he was old enough to appreciate it. Lucky for him, this was his year.
I created an party invite on Picmonkey, we invited 10 of his friends and I started to buy ALL the Halloween decorations I could. M chose to be a skeleton this year, which was great as it’s become somewhat of a tradition for M to dress as a skeleton since the year he was born. I went for a Dracula costume on the request of M, I wanted to be my standard zombie, but M thought I might scare his friends.
I was really pleased with how the decorations looked once they were up and was satisfied they weren’t too spooky for M’s friends. We’d planned a few games, bought some pizzas and I’d made up party bags for the guests to take with them at the end of the party. At one point I think I was more excited for the party that M, but once his friends started arriving he was racing around with the biggest grin on his face.
The party was a whirlwind of sugar, sweeties and musical statues and was just perfect. We have already started to think about his next party, possibly hosted in a hall rather than our home.
Did you throw a Halloween party this year?
