1: Bat Halloween Party Invitation from Cardstore.com hint at a spooky time, but won’t totally scare off a kid from coming to the party 2: Decorating Bat cookies (cutter from Copper Gifts) and 3: Ghost cookies (cutter from Wilton) would make a fun party activity. Have older siblings or an adult ice all the cookies, and let the little ones shake shake shake the sprinkles all over & add the spooky eyes.
4: I love these scary scientific bottle labels from Martha Stewart for Grandin Road — put on fruit punch bottles for the kids and some nice Cabernet for the grown ups. 5:The spider vase fillers (from Pottery Barn) are so oversize and borderline cute that they won’t completely freak out the kids. 6: The Skeletal System Anatomical Chart is the real thing (found Birdie1′s Etsy shop). A little creepy, but cool.
7: So it’s a little on the overboard side, but how amazing would it be to wallpaper a wall in your dining room with this spooky Woods wallpaper by Cole & Son? 8: I suggested this black bird/crow costume (found on MarthaStewart.com) to my son, but he said he’d rather be a bumblebee. “Awwww, cute,” I said. “I think you’d be an adorable bumblebee.”
“Yeah. So I can have a stinger on my butt,” he said.
Oh, right. Of course.
