Halloween was obviously the theme and the paper decorations were out and about in their full glory details, I love it and yet again, Halloween in our house started in August! At this age you want them to look fun rather than scary. So keeping it light, I made a variation of different buntings.

|Paper Ghost Garland|
|Pumpkins, Cats and Frankensteins Bunting|
I also made a selection of toilet roll pumpkins and Frankensteins.

|Toilet Roll Frankenstein|
These were a very cheap and easy option of ghosts cups. I have lots of LED tea lights left over from my wedding a couple of years ago. They didn't work that great in the day time.. but by night they were really effective.

|Pumpkin Satsumas and Grapes|
|Homemade Shortbread Ghosts and Ghouls|
|Free Printable Cupcake Toppers|
The one activities I did organise went down really well (with the mums!) and it also gave them something to take home along with their goodie bags. As much as I love to go overboard with decorations and creating a party scene, I'm also aware that the kids are much more interested in playing with the toys, so their goodie bags (a pumpkin face stuck to an envelope) included some bubbles and a footprint card. Also I don't want to set the bar to high.. as much as I love what I do for Poppy (and myself!) I don't want to spend a fortune where in my opinion its not necessary!
