Mississhippi's Madness

A place to share my creative pursuits

Halloween 2014


My daughter has been begging for a Halloween party for a couple of years so this year I told her to put together a plan for what she wants the party to be, show to me and her dad and we’ll decide if we could do it. She just wanted 4 friends, some party food, some games and a scary movie. I liked how she didn’t go too overboard so the party was on.

But, it had to be mostly hand-made, so we started with decorating the front door so people would know they could come and trick or treat at our house. I found some great pictures on Pinterest and got inspired – some cardboard, crepe paper and pipe cleaners and voila…

And for some home made food…

Jelly filled oranges (with a surprise inside). Ran out of time to carve them so a little Sharpie art helped out. There were some cupcakes with spiders made of marshmallow and licorice and icing spider webs but I forgot to get a pic of them before they were all gone.

And for a healthier dessert option…

This definitely suits the southern hemisphere Halloween more than a pumpkin I feel as we are going into summer not winter – and it is much easier to carve. And the kids loved it!! I’ll be making something like this again next year I think even if we don’t have a party!
