Kids love piñatas almost as much as they love candy. So combining a piñata with Halloween trick or treating – how perfect is that! We love these Halloween Piñatas – a scary black cat, a giant flying bat, a witch on a broomstick, an adorable Frankenstein, and a great carved pumpkin.
Halloween Piñatas are not only perfect additions to any party they may be a great alternative for those of you not so into trick or treating, begging for candy by knocking on strangers doors. The fact is that some children really do find the holiday of Halloween scary and overwhelming so inviting a few friends over to your house for a costume party may be just the answer. Send out Halloween invitations, serve Halloween theme food & drink, play Halloween games, offer cute Halloween party favors, have a costume fashion show, and end the festivities with breaking the piñata so everyone walks away with a bagful of candy. This way you also have complete control over the candy and don't have to comb through pillow cases full of yucky unwrapped candy handed out by strangers.
Have a safe Halloween and party hearty!
Every once in a while I come across a picture or a photo that inspires me. This one popped up on my Facebook feed. Admittedly, I am extremely biased but my niece's gorgeous piercing blue eyes staring out from behind that incredible Venetian blue and gold mask made me wonder if this Halloween rather than donning the usual scary costume or sexy fantasy costume we might consider more refined, almost elegant Halloween attire. I must admit, after my truly scary Halloween experience being stalked by a crazy dressed in a Clockwork Orange costume, I get a bit freaked out by Halloween. Sometimes I believe Halloween is used as an excuse for people to “try on” behaviors and personae that are unacceptable in every day life. But I digress.
The point of this post is to suggest switching it up this Halloween – rather than spend a fortune on a one wear costume, raid your closet or better yet buy yourself that long coveted cocktail dress you can wear again and again and add a stunning Venetian mask. You can even create a couples Venetian mask that is both easy and fabulous or join forces with your girlfriends and together make a jaw dropping entrance. (This would make a great teen costume too especially if all of your friends wore different but coordinating masks!!) Elegance is forever chic and always sexy!
