Halloween Movie Night Concession Stand

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of HERSHEY® for SheSpeaks. All opinions are 100% mine.

We LOVE Halloween at our house and you better believe I stock up early on treats to enjoy all season long. A quick trip to Walmart's candy aisle and I'm in Halloween candy heaven! Some of my new favorite treats are the New KIT KAT® Witch's Brew Bar with their bright purple wrapper and adorable little witch. When you open them up, they're a really cool pale green that has the classic crunch of a KitKat but the coating is marshmallow flavored! You MUST try these, they're so yummy! Also we're loving the New Reese's Franken-Cup that feature a spooky splash of green. Head to WALMART  for your one-stop shop for all things Halloween. You can get everything you need to start the season with one quick trip to Walmart, Walmart.com or my favorite, Walmart Grocery Pickup!

With all these festive treats I knew I had to incorporate them into a Halloween movie night with the family! Check out below how I put this creepy cute concession stand together. 

One of my family's favorite Halloween movies is Hocus Pocus and it's tradition that we watch it on October 1st. So of course the theme of the concession stand is a nod to this spooktastic movie. I started out transforming an old bookcase by creating a balloon garland in pink, orange and black and draping it over the bookcase. Next, I used my cutting machine to create a mini awning and attached it to the top of the bookcase. 

I created a concessions sign and black arrow pointing to the treats out of black and pink paper. 

For this next detail, you could cut out the title to your movie and attach it to a chalkboard using tape or simply write out all the details in chalk onto the board. 

Next, I used my cutting machine to create pink and black star boxes and filled them with REESE'S Franken Cups, REESE'S Pumpkins, New KIT KAT® Witch's Brew and Hershey Milk Chocolate Bars. I wanted it to feel like we were actually going to a movie inside a movie theater so I created mini movie tickets and tucked them inside the treat boxes. 

You could prepack all of the goodies into the boxes or you could leave the boxes empty and have your family pick and choose their favorites! 

We're so excited to devour these delicious treats from Hershey for our annual Halloween movie night.  I hope you enjoyed our Halloween movie night concession stand! 

No matter how you celebrate Halloween this year, your celebration will be the best on the block with your favorite treats from HERSHEY at WALMART!

Pumpkin Terrarium

It's the most wonderful time of the year! I'm so excited for Halloween crafting and decorating, how about you? Today I'm sharing this spooky scene I created using a pumpkin terrarium from Oriental Trading

For this craft, I spray painted the pumpkin using aqua spray paint and painted the stem black using acrylic paint. After the paint on the pumpkin had dried, I used my Cricut Maker to cut out a haunted house, a spooky old fence, bats and stars. I loved the colors from pastels cardstock variety pack and knew they'd be perfect for this project. 

After all my pieces were cut out, I attached them using hot glue to the pumpkin and to bottle brush trees. I also painted a few mini pumpkin candy buckets using black and coral paint to place around the terrarium. 

When the lights go out, add some sparkling string lights or tuck a battery operated candle inside the pumpkin. 

 Your spooky scene is now ready to go! Place it on the mantel, table or any other place you can think of for a little Halloween cheer. 

Thanks for stopping by!
