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.

Pumpkin carving party ideas

1110_pumpkinParty_001-2
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.

Mommy Cards go Trick or Treating

Mommy cards are helpful when moving to a new neighborhood!
A customer of ours moved to a new neighborhood in the fall. She had her mommy cards, complete with contact info and her child’s photo already made (her first wise move), but proved she was a genius when she came up with the brilliant idea of taking them along Trick-or-Treating with her child on Halloween. After all, what other time of year is it acceptable to ring every doorbell in the neighborhood and introduce yourself? When she met someone she wanted to connect with, such as a family with kids her own child’s age or, better yet, a potential babysitter, rather than engage in a long conversation (not possible with a giant ladybug tugging at your sleeve to move on) she dropped off a mommy calling card. It was a great way to say, “I’d like to get to know you.” Kudos to you, Mommy. Our customers are the smartest!

In addition to mommy cards, be sure to check out our Halloween photo cards and Halloween invitations. And for more Halloween ideas, keep reading our blog.

Address labels? Or Halloween treat tags?

Halloween Gift Tags
One of our favorite ways to use our Halloween address labels is on our kids’ Halloween treats. If you’re looking for kids Halloween party ideas at school, Pear Tree address labels or personalized stickers are a great way to customize your treats. And if you are hosting a Halloween party, you can also use them to seal your treat bags, or just to decorate them. Keep it simple and use small lunch bags. The kids can color them, decorate them with stickers and add a spooktacular Halloween message.

Look for Halloween personalized stickers and Halloween address labels to match all of our Halloween invitations. And keep reading our blog for more kids Halloween party ideas!
