Halloween Craft Party

Today I am sharing a fun Halloween craft party that is completely kid friendly. I love love love Halloween and I seem to have passed that onto my sons. We have had a Halloween craft party for the past 3 years and my boys love it. They have so much fun plus it is an extra day for them to use their costumes.

I used my sons tool bench to hold all the craft supplies.

We had some yummy glazed donuts that I packaged in black and white striped bags and then placed them in a cauldron.
I made some popcorn boxes but placed rice krispies in them instead. I inserted a popsicle stick in them that I embellished with washi tape.
These are vanilla pudding cups I just added some green food coloring and crushed oreo cookies to the top. I used a marker to draw on the Frankenstein face to the cups.

These cookies are not only cute but they were absolutely delicious. My amazing talented friend Roni from Roni's Sugar Creations made them. They were a huge hit!!!
Googly grapes.
Healthy options to balance out the sweets.
I spray painted the bubbles bottle black and added a wrap that came in the printable collection. A perfect party favor.
Another party favor that I gave out were glow sticks. Perfect for them to take trick or treating.
On each chair at the table where they sat to eat and craft I added a mini tassel garland. I love how it turned out
These were the place settings for each child. I did a glittered spider web as a place mat, inside the gable box was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
Let the crafting begin :) the first craft was to decorate their own haunted house.
Jack O Lantern
Frankenstein had to make another appearance ;)

Thanks for taking your time to check out my Halloween craft party. I hope you leave this post inspired to create your own party. What are your plans for Halloween?

Movie Night Ice Cream Bar

Hey, I'm here again to show you another ice cream bar that I did for my sons. This one was quickly put together so they could enjoy a nice treat while watching a movie. Printables are from the super talented Sweet Peach Paperie she has such a beautiful Ice Cream Parlor collection that I used. I set out some cupcakes for them and also some delicious cookies from my fabulous friend Roni. I set out some of the toppings that Breyers sent me from their new toppings line so that my sons could create their own cookie sandwiches it was so fun.

I paired up the cookies and wrapped them with the water bottle labels that come in the collection.

The collection also has a sign for decorating hats so I grabbed two hats from my party stash and wrapped them with blue scrapbook paper then in a bag I placed some of the 2 inch tags and a pom pom, they could use that to decorate their hats and wear them while watching the movie and eating their ice cream cookie sandwiches.

Even though it was just movie night for my sons I still wanted to give them a little favor I found these bubbles in ice cream containers at my local Dollar Tree they were perfect because my boys love blowing bubbles!

Here is one of the cookie sandwiches that we created that movie night. For this one we chose the hot fudge sauce, vanilla ice cream, real fruit strawberry topping and rainbow sprinkles. It was absolutely delicious the toppings are so good and very convenient to use perfect for a quick and easy setup. For the sauce that comes in the microwavable pouch just place them in there for a bit and you have a warm delicious sauce for your ice cream sandwiches.

Rainbow Ice Cream Party

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Breyers® Toppings. Creativities Galore received product or compensation for the purposes of this post. All opinions are strictly my own!!

I just love ice cream and all the toppings that come along with it you can really just do so much with it. I was so delighted when Breyers sent over items from their new ice cream toppings line when I opened it up I right away knew I wanted to do an ice cream party and then I saw the fabulous rainbow sprinkles, I said to myself "Here is my inspiration" so I present to you my Rainbow Ice Cream Party!

I wanted to create an ice cream bar not only did the guest have a variety of ice cream toppings but they also had many ways offered as how to serve themselves: ice cream cups with wooden spoons, sugar cones, and push up pops. I also added some cupcakes so they could break it apart and add it to the cups or push up pops then add some ice cream and toppings of choice.
 I got to work with some fabulous printable designers for this party who all coordinated to the theme. How great is that ice cream bar banner which matched the cupcake wrappers, sugar cone wraps and also the milk bottle labels which are printed on water resistant paper which is great when you serve a nice cold drink.
The chalkboard printable accompanied the toppings just perfect :)
Here are the Breyers toppings which by the way won the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval . Their new line includes chocolate sauce, caramel sauce and hot fudge sauce which come in these great and mess free microwavable pouches. It also includes real fruit toppings like strawberries, mixed berries and cherry. Last but not least the sprinkles that come in chocolate and rainbow.  
I decorated these sturdy ice cream cups with some ribbon that matched great to everything else on the table then I added a cute little 2 inch tag to the center. I added a straw flag to the wooden spoons they turned out so nice. 

I love that little banner so darling!
My guest were so happy with their ice cream alone but I still sent them home with a little parting gift these candles that were ice cream scented how fabulous is that but wait not only are they candles but when not lit they also can be used as lotion so 2 gifts in one.

I loved how my push pop containers looked with the vinyl added to them and rainbow colored ribbon it's just what they needed. My guest absolutely loved them.  

I love this sundae centerpiece, how adorable is it right? It is made of fake carnations so I can used it over and over for other ice cream parties that I am sure will happen ;) LOVE it!

These are some of the creations that were enjoyed the ones to the left are the ones my sons created they had chocolate sauce and chocolate sprinkles (can you tell they like chocolate lol) and the one to the right was created by my sister that one included caramel sauce, the strawberries topping and rainbow sprinkles.

The highlight of the party was when my 5 year old told me "Mom I didn't like it, I LOVED it" as he handed me his empty ice cream cup :)

Curling Ribbon Napkin Ring

I recently created a ice cream bar that is being shared over on Made By A Princess blog. One of my favorite elements on the table were these napkins I spruced up with just curling ribbon and a 2" circle tag I created (which are a free download on her blog). All I did was tie some curling ribbon around the folded napkin and spoon then I just tied a couple more strings of the ribbon curled them up and glued a tag to it super simple and cute. To see more pictures of the Summer fun ice cream bar click HERE.
