As the More is More Mom®, I’m all about……more Halloween party planning. If fall is my favorite season, then Halloween is my all time, very favorite holiday; all the candy you can eat and no expensive and stressful gift giving. What’s not to like!?!
While my pals are no longer trick-or-treater’s, they still like to get into the spirit of the season. In fact, we are planning a Halloween get together for Amanda and her girlfriends. While I have gobs and gobs of decorations that I pulled out of the attic (resplendent with cobwebs and spiders), I still needed a few supplies that will help us get this party started…… which is why I headed over to Kmart.
My front porch is always decorated with pots of flowers and pumpkins. I hang a very realistic skeleton from the gallows and I love garland draped across my front door. This year, I was looking for new luscious leaf garland to serve as the base layer.
I found great garlands that help lend a festive and spooky touch to my outdoor decor!
As an Interior Designer, one of my decorating tips is the versatile use of apothecary jars. They can be filled with everything from cotton balls to candy. For the party, I was looking for something frightful to fill them with. Kmart had some great decorations. I found these fantastic skulls and spiders.
They look great on the counter in my powder room.
As I was cruising the aisles, I came across an unbelievable selection of candy; chocolates and confections. While it’s tasty to eat, candy can certainly be used as a decorative accent. Here I simply placed candy corn in a glass hurricane. They are perfect with a candle nestled inside.
A roaring fire in the fireplace, flickering candles and twinkling lights always make our homes feel so cozy. Usually I reserve the twinkling lights for my greenery (and all year long in my ficus tree!) but this year I ran across these pumpkin lights and they really are adorable! I love them strung over my kitchen sink. They even make doing dishes a little more festive.
Having teenagers in our home is a total game changer. They may be past trick-or-treating and apple bobbing, but they’re totally up for a scary movie with friends. I made a quick stop to check out Kmart’s Halloween movie selection. Sadly, I’ll have to sleep with my lights on for a week!
The girls love it when we set up the big screen and our projector in the backyard.
Of course, if you’re showing a movie, you need a concession stand. Kmart had a great variety of movie theater candy at even better prices.
I like to set it all up as a concession buffet!
Since the girls will be outside, we will definitely build a bonfire. If you build it, you have to make S’Mores. I’m so glad I was able to pick up all of the supplies in just one stop. I hate to lose track of any of the party details.
I’ll get everything the girls need set up on a tray that I can whisk right out into the backyard.
Our party is really coming together. Amanda and her friends will definitely enjoy their frightfully fun affair! I just hope they leave enough treats for Chuck, Wrigley and me.
More Halloween shopping, more decorating, more party planning, more celebrating the season…………
