“When witches go riding and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers, ‘Tis near Halloween!”

The time has come for costumes, candy, holiday decorating, and of course our annual kids Halloween party reveal! We couldn’t be more excited! For our family, celebrating the coming of fall and wonders of make-believe with our kids is what this Halloween season is all about! We love the bright colors of the holiday, the anticipation of planning out exactly what everyone will be when trick-or-treating, and the many opportunities to plan wonderful Halloween themed events with our friends and family.

Today, we are so proud to bring you the first part of our very own Kitsch ‘n Whimsy Kids Halloween Party Guide where we will talk about our party invitations, decorations, and party favors (as well as where to get it all)! We LOVE planning parties for the little ones and have put together a bright, colorful, and not-so-scary party to help encourage you to celebrate the season with your own little ones and their friends. We hope you will find inspiration in this year’s kids Halloween party reveal and will feel excited to implement some of the elements into your own party.

Halloween Party Invitation

When planning a Halloween party, we decided to go with a fun costume party and we wanted to keep it general! So we looked for an invitation that would appeal to children and that has a costume party theme only (no birthday party invite). We found this adorable invitation by Mermaid Monkey Designs that fit perfectly with the color and pattern scheme of our party!

Decorations are one of our favorite parts of putting on a party and we LOVE making as many decorations ourselves as possible. For our party, we created a dessert table backdrop, decorated our dessert table itself, and decorated a kids table where the meals and activities will take place! Here is where you can find the Halloween themed decorations we used as well as the decor items we have available in our very own store!
