Ticket for one to Fright Night please! It's no secret that Halloween is big over here, have you checked out my post on our Halloween decorations this year? You can see those pictures by clicking here.
But back to the party...instead of our usual family friendly Halloween party I had an outdoor Halloween movie night for the boys and a few friends. It was an incredibly easy party to set up and host. Unfortunately I had a major phone malfunction earlier this year and lost all my pictures of this party so I will try and set the scene through words
What You Need:
-child friendly Halloween movie
-large white sheet or inflatable screen (these can be rented), laptop, projector, and speakers
-inflatable pool filled with pillows and blankets and/or lawn chairs
-lots of popcorn with candy eyeballs, gummy worms, and candy knives
-optional: bonfire for roasting s'mores
Orange and black pumpkin luminaries lined the driveway and led our guests to the back patio where they were greeted by life size mummies and a cozy bonfire. Our 5ft tall skeletons were in their best attire (top hats and bow ties) and hanging out in the covered patio where the table was set for dinner. A black table cloth, with black napkins rolled in a spider ring, black cups with googly eyes glued on and black and white straws with bats awaited the boys. Cheese pizza, fruit, veggies, and an amazing display of doughnut eyeballs that one of the moms made and brought were on the menu.
After dinner the boys got to run around and play while I got the movie started. We used our usual bungee cords strung between the trees with a large white sheet. I had the inflatable pool blown up and filled with pillows and blankets alongside our outdoor furniture and cozy campfire going. Once the boys got some energy out they happily sat down to watch the movie while I handed out the popcorn. We finished the night off making s'mores and letting the boys play hide n seek in the dark with glow sticks (hint:if you ever need glow sticks always go to Dollar Tree so you aren't paying more than a dollar!)
This was such a fun party that I will definitely do it again and make sure my pictures don't disappear.

This is a perfect event for boys of that age (7-8)!ReplyDelete
What fun! I'm so sad that Santiago isn't going to do a movie night at school this year. It was always such fun but a neighborhood party would be even better!ReplyDelete
What fun! I am very sad that Santiago will not be going to the movies at school this year. And instead I installed the netflix mod apk app at TechBigs to watch.ReplyDelete
