Once Upon a Midnight Dreary...

We're huge fans of Edgar Allan Poe and when Halloween rolls around, we break out our book of Poe stories and poems and recite the creepy tales. Our hauntingly fun Halloween party inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven, celebrates the master of macabre himself, Mr. Poe. 

We summoned guests to our party by sending out fun Quoth the Raven invites. The guests dined on spooky treats from the dessert table like graveyard scene sugar cookies, popcorn with Mr. Poe's face peeking out and chocolate covered oreos adorned with the grim author's face. 

One of my favorite elements of the party was the vintage type writer used as centerpiece. The typewriter is still in working condition and some of the guests typed out their own creepy poems (which were absolutely hilarious!) Black and white favor bags were handed out at the end of the evening filled with Halloween goodies and a copy of The Raven.

This was definitely one frighteningly fun party! 
Check out the entire party below!

Halloween Party Invites

How about invitations that also double as Halloween decor?  The recipients will not only love being invited to your fabulous party but they'll love having a cute handmade Halloween decoration as well! The Wood Connection has so many adorable Halloween projects that can easily double as an invite. 

For this project, I used a candy cornchunky spider and a vampire trick or treater (which was on clearance but they might have some still available!). 

I painted the candy corn invite white and cut out orange and yellow paper to fit. Then I designed an invite using Canva, printed it and cut it out. Simply tie a bit of bakers twine around the candy corn and attach your invite. So cute and easy!

The spider and vampire trick or treater were painted black and then I sprinkled black glitter over the front of the project while the paint was still wet.  I attached the invite with bakers twine as well. Love that purple bakers twine!

You can always use paper instead of glitter to cover your projects. Either way would be adorable!

And there you have it. Fun invites that won't get thrown away and can be used for years to come. 
Be sure to check out  The Wood Connection for all their darling Halloween projects!

Here is a quick and easy project that I'm sure all the little monsters in your life will adore. Who wouldn't love to have their own friendly ghost to take home on Halloween night?

Next, punch two holes at the top of the ghost treat bags and thread ribbon through the holes of the bag and the ghost tag. Tie a knot at the top to secure the bag.
And there you have it!

Create Creature Kit

If you're planning a Halloween party, here is a fun idea for your little guests that will definitely keep them entertained. Have the kids create their own creatures this Halloween by putting together a Create A Creature Kit using modeling clay, googly eyes and pipe cleaners from Oriental Trading Company. It's so fun to see all the different and creative ways the kids come up with for their creatures.
This is a quick and easy project, so let's get started! 

Supplies used:

I used a little basket shred to line the bottom of the buckets and then filled them with all the spooky supplies. 

Mix and match some fun Halloween ribbon and tie to the handle of the bucket.

Cut out and attach the printable to the handle with ribbon.

And there you have it! Spooky creature kits to keep little hands busy and entertained. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a most Spooktacular Halloween!
