Print and Play!
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute). And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.

It is still not too late to begin planning this year's family Halloween party! Some of our favorite childhood memories are the years we all met at Max, Harry & Jack's house for a fun pre-trick or treating Halloween dinner party. Their mom, Karen, always had a healthy dinner planned so the kids would not dive right into their trick or treat bags before all the parents had a chance to go through the treats and weed out any suspicious looking or unwrapped “tricks”.
Other than the actual trick or treating, the kids' favorite part of the night was when Karen escorted them to a huge crafting table set up so each child had their own Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit. Karen always purchased a basic Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit from The Popcorn Factory. Each Halloween Popcorn Ball Decorating Kit came with eight of their delicious signature Popcorn Balls and an array of decorating candy extras – basically, everything you would need to transform the yummy popcorn balls into ghoulies and ghosties and delicious things that go bump in the night. It truly was great family fun!

When we first saw this picture on @Tiny Prints instagram, all we could think of is we need to share this modern take on a very classic party idea. Years ago, no self respecting hostess would consider throwing a party without having ordered personalized cocktail napkins. We find it fascinating that all things from the 1970's are very much back in vogue this year including cocktail napkins. The only difference is that in the day, the graphic was design was usually minimal, maybe a small rose or leaf combined with the guest of honor's name in one of a half dozen or so typography choices. Today, we are privy to fabulous graphics and a whole slew of fonts from which to choose. Continue Reading →
Our friends over at GreatGets.com have challenged us to create a Halloween costume party for couples and their dogs. We accept the challenge and hope you all will send us your pictures of your first annual Bring Your Pup Howl-O-Ween Party.
Our first recommendation is to choose an outdoor venue. If your backyard is not large enough consider moving the festivities to your local dog park. Our second recommendation, plan on wearing costumes but if the whole costume thing becomes too stressful for either your dog or yourself, take it off. The bottom line is parties are about getting together and enjoying friends and family. It is not worth skipping the fun because of an aversion to costumes. Continue Reading →
