Of all of our new Halloween invitation ideas, this one is our favorite. We love the look of the chalkboard art, and the simple two-sided design. We asked Shauna, creator of this Chalk Art Halloween invitation, why she chose it and to tell us a little bit about her party.
In honor of Halloween, the Pear Tree Greetings’ team hosted a Halloween treat day at the office. All team members were asked to search on Pinterest to find an ooey-gooey treat to share. See the Halloween food ideas we created, and let us know which spooky treat looks best!

Ghosts, pirates, witches, pumpkins, superheroes and so many more creative costumes fill the streets in the evening of October 31st. This is one of the best times of the year for children as they go door to door disguised in their aspirational costumes and saying the familiar phrase of “Trick-or-treat!”

How’s this for a sweet Halloween party idea? Candy corn is such a cute and colorful mainstay of Halloween that it can inspire lots of kids’ Halloween party ideas. No scary monsters or wicked witches to freak out the little ones, just yummy goodness and bright colors to use for food and decorating ideas.
Our Sweet Treat Halloween Party Invitations set the theme and get the party started. Check out our Candy Corn Halloween Party Ideas Pinterest board for candy corn garland, a Do-It-Yourself banner and a table centerpiece idea.
We also found a few different dessert ideas, layered to look like candy corn, which add to the colorful décor: cheesecake mousse, ice cream cones, marshmallow snacks, or milkshakes. You can even make a candy-corn costume for the guest of honor, or hats for all the party guests! With a little imagination, it’s not hard to come up with Halloween party ideas to fit your candy corn theme.
Watch for more Halloween party ideas on our blog, and don’t forget to shop for Halloween Invitations to get your candy corn party started!
Whether you’re looking for kids’ pirate party ideas for Halloween or for any time of year, this pirate party from celebrations.com looks like a swashbuckling good time. And it all starts with the unexpected arrival of a pirate mask Halloween party invitation in the mail—talk about building excitement ahead of time! The text on the invitation can be changed to work for either a Halloween party or a birthday party, and the colors are a great starting point for all of your kids pirate party ideas.
Red and black were used throughout the party, from the food to the decorations, to keep the theme simple and impactful. Each guest had a pirate name skull & crossbones decal to make them feel part of the gang. Gold “treasure” in the form of candy favors and serving trays made fun accents.

When our customer, Lindsey, decided to take a photo of her son in his new Halloween costume, she was a little worried about getting him to cooperate. “I didn’t think that my son would actually keep the costume on long enough for me to take this photo.” But using a little mom-genuity, she came up with a great idea. “The wagon was a distraction to get him to focus on something else other the big ears, fuzzy feet and long tail. The wagon is a new toy for him (an awesome hand-me-down from his two cousins in Seattle, WA) and since he hasn’t quite figured out how to use it as a walker yet, he likes climbing into and sitting in it.” Great photo? Check.
I like to carve pumpkins for Halloween—so much so, that when my kids were younger, I’d let all three of them carve their own pumpkins and then I’d buy an extra one for myself so that I could carve my own. That’s four pumpkins-worth of slimy, stringy, orange-y goop getting flung around my kitchen. I’ve always thought that if you’re going to make a mess, you might as well go all the way.
But that’s nothing. One of my team members here at Pear Tree has a neighbor who throws a pumpkin carving party every year for the whole neighborhood. They clean out their heated garage, put up some orange lights and Halloween decorations, and line the floor with a plastic tarp. (Wish I’d thought of that.) They provide the kid-friendly carving tools, but it’s BYOP—Bring Your Own Pumpkin.
