Decorating doesn’t have to be hard and whatever you buy this year is one less thing you will need for next year’s party (hint hint).   Webbing, kid safe battery operated candles, banners, fake spiders, skeletons…there are just so many ideas you can’t go wrong.

Food and Drink

Don’t feel like you have to serve a full meal, just make sure your food is kid friendly.   It can be as easy as a table full of light bites with some sweets added in.   If you want to get a little fancier, you can put in a party order at Chik-Fil-A or your local pizza place.

There are more ideas than ever to keep the little ones having fun at your party. From pumpkin painting, a bean bag toss, to the fall favorite, bobbing for apples. Set up stations around so everyone is not gathering in the same place. Try to keep it outside if you can, it is much easier for the messes that are bound to happen.

Here are some cute ideas.
