Recipe for a festive Halloween party!


A few ingredients to concocting a fun Halloween party Kenward-style! 


Ingredients:

3 face painters/tattoo artists  

We asked my college niece to bring some of her college friends to help with the face painting and Halloween tattoos at this year's party.  We kept the girls busy all night long.



10+carnival games
A few of the games were on loan from one of Chris's elementary schools.  Thank you, Lakeside. 




Handfuls of candy and sweet treats



1 popcorn machine
Thank you, Lakeside Elementary.  YUMMY!


1 easy crafting activityPipe cleaners and mini wooden dowel rods make perfect wands. 


Too many over-the-top Halloween decorations to count




Mix all the ingredients together and enjoy 4 hours of party fun!





.



Chris came as this year's MLB Triple Crown Winner...Miguel Cabrera 


It was a great party with over 100+ guests.  I was so busy playing hostess that I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I have done in years past. Don't worry though.  Halloween continues with Chris's 15+ carved pumpkins on my next post!

Great Pictures! I love all the face painting. wow.. they did a great job. How lucky your friends and their kids are that you throw this party every year! they will always remember coming to your spooktacular house for halloween!
Do you get a lot of trick or treaters? I would imagine you do. I dont. Im lucky if I get any. I always have a little candy on hand for my neighbors. Im sure tiffany and bethany will bring torry and marla over. but its going to be a very rainy soggy halloween here.
cant wait to see the pumpkins!
have a great sunday!
xoxo
