With Halloween parties and Thanksgiving celebrations just around the corner we thought we would share this yummy Pumpkin Martini Recipe posted by Beau-coup on Facebook. Cheers! This fall favorite recipe is not only easy to make it is the perfect signature cocktail for all those fall parties because it looks as good as it tastes!
What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties. We plan the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food. But we never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute).
And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. It is then we realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.
We just came across this post, Switch Witch ? The Solution to TOO MUCH Halloween Candy, from our friends over at MomMeMatch (the site that has put together by far the best collection of family matching Christmas pajamas we have seen to date). They tracked down the Switch Witch, featured on Shark Tank a few years back, and although the proprietors did not get a deal, they remind us that the Switch Witch is still a fun solution to TOO MUCH Halloween Candy. Best yet, we just checked and the Switch Witch is available with the Amazon Prime One Day Shipping option so you can still get it delivered to your doorstep in time for Halloween! Continue Reading →
At this time of year, we are all about ghoulish green here at PartyIdeaPros. Today, however, the green we are referring to is the eco-friendly kind. We bring our own bags wherever we shop. And we always highly recommended gifting re-usable totes filled with goodies as welcome bags for your out of town guests. So we did not think it was over the top crazy when we happened upon MomMeMatch‘s suggestion of using Halloween to create a new family tradition of matching re-usable trick-or-treat bags like so many families do with Christmas stockings.
The whole notion of families pulling out their matching family trick-or-treat bags each Halloween and taking an annual family Halloween photo is just #toocute for words especially if you are all dressed in Mommy, Daddy & Me Matching Halloween Costumes. Plus, even if you do not buy in to the whole matching family thing, investing in cute re-usable Halloween trick-or treat bags will model eco-friendly behavior for your children. Continue Reading →
How creepy are these costumes and masks! They have to be amongst the scariest clown costumes for men available. We now know why our kids were always afraid of clowns. There is something scarier about evil clown costumes than even the most bloody vampire, werewolf, or badass monster Halloween costumes out there today.
Teen Costumes ! Looking for the perfect costume? A fashionable teen costume for Halloween, plays, parties or other events? There are so many costumes from which to choose, Party Idea Pros is highlighting just a few of our favorites.
Most teenage girls we know travel in packs and love coordinating their costumes. One year all the high school girls dressed as storybook characters. Another year they all dressed in neon. Not sure yet what this year will bring … crayons, candy, goth, witches, goddesses, sesame street, superheroes? Whatever they choose, I have no doubt the teen costumes will be too short and too sexy for their parents' taste!
Click on the links or pictures for the teen costume for details but remember, the photos below just give you the overall look. Quite often you can choose from a variety of options ranging from almost dowdy to quite sexy, so be sure to click on the “see more” links option when you visit the costume site. Many of these costumes are specially sized just for a teen but don't worry if they are not. Most of the x-small or small adult costumes will fit just fine. If they are cut a bit too low for your taste, add a tank top underneath. If they are too short … that's why leggings were invented. 🙂
