Some Pinterest-Inspired Halloween Party Ideas

I've been so inspired lately by all of the adorable party ideas I've been seeing on Pinterest.  There are so many great ideas over there!  Thanks to all the great printables, throwing a party together is a snap.  All my decorations were made using free printables, dollar store decorations, and Goodwill items.

The tissue paper pom poms were super easy to make.  You can find the tutorial at Martha Stewart

The free printable banner can be found over at Chickabug.  To cover the table, I found a black gauzy runner at Michael's on clearance for a dollar, and draped it over a white tablecloth I already had.

Inspired by these creepy apothecary jars from Pottery Barn, I used some clear glass jars and vases I picked up from Goodwill and Dollar Tree, and filled them with dollar store Halloween stuff.  The birds are from the dollar store as well.

The "Werewolf Kibble" is a mixture of Bugles, Fiddle Faddle, and Autumn mix, all purchased at the dollar store.  The printable label can be found over at Bite Bella.  Being a Twilight fan, I just couldn't resist!  The drink label printables can be found at Centsational Girl, Peonies and Poppyseeds, and Graphics Fairy.  We went apple picking last weekend.  What's Halloween without some caramel apples?

I picked up some plastic skulls at the dollar store.  They also had these black candlesticks, so I just hot glued the skulls on top!  How cute are these spider and bat ice cubes?  Using ice trays and spiders from the dollar store, I surprised the kiddos with these.  Trust me, they were a huge hit with the little ones!  I also made these mini pumpkin oreo cheesecakes using a recipe I found on Pinterest.  They can be found here

Haven't jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon yet?  You just don't know what you're missing!  Talk about addictive!  For these, and more inspiring ideas, head on over to my Pinterest boards and click "follow all".
