Our Impromptu Halloween Party

We had some big plans over the Halloween weekend...unfortunately, both of my girls were getting over colds so we had to miss our big party plans. What is a Momma to do...make our own party! We didn't have a lot of time, so I just went to the local grocery and picked up a few things and then added some of our homemade treats to the mix! The best part is that my girls got to help me! 

I got out some old Halloween fabric that I had never used to make a table cloth. I got this at Hobby Lobby.

I also found this adorable ghost at Hobby Lobby, on a 50% off coupon day, and could not figure out where he could go...I found the perfect place, front and center on our table! The mini pumpkins were from our family trip to the pumpkin patch.

 OK...these little cupcake holders might be one of the cutest things that I have found. I went to Crate & Barrel back in August. When I saw these, I knew I had to get them! 
At under $2, the price was right! I didn't really have time to make cupcakes, so I just ran to the store and found these for under $5. Not as good as homemade, but in a pinch...they work!


The one thing I did not skimp on was my truffles! I made a small batch and my girls 
dipped them and provided the confetti sprinkles. For a 3 and 6 year old, I think they turned out great! Maybe I should put them to work!
All in all I was very happy about our impromptu party! The best thing was getting to do it with my girls! We had a great night of trick or treating...followed by our big party for 4!

As always, the two faces above are the reason for all of this! I love to see those smiling, and in this picture dirty, faces! I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween!!!

Now onto the next we come Thanksgiving!!!
