Witches Brunch. I recently hosted this fun little party for my niece and a few friends. It was super affordable and easy to put together, and the kids had a blast, in fact, my boys have asked me to keep the table set up until after Halloween.
I was sent a box full of Halloween greatness from Oriental Trading Co., and I will be sharing a few free printables for some of the other products I received over the next two weeks. I love shopping at Oriental Trading Co., their products are usually very well made, and perfect for parties, and almost always a very good deal!
I saw the light up tree (I also used it in the back of our SUV for our Trunk or Treat shoot) and popcorn cone stand and knew I *had* to have them! Popcorn is an easy and affordable snack, and everyone enjoys popcorn. (Because popcorn can upset my guys’ and my niece’s tummy, I put a crumpled up paper towel in the bottom of the cone, and filled the rest with popcorn. This allowed the kids to enjoy some popcorn without upsetting their stomachs) I put a fun cinnamon witch broom on the table behind the popcorn, and the kids had a BLAST riding it during the party! I placed the light up tree on the opposite end of the table. The kids were enamored with the way the lights dimmed on and off.
The orange and purple drizzle cake had a perfect backdrop; I decorated an old window frame using vinyl to make a silhouette witch in a mirrored frame, and foam to make flying bats. Both designs are available in the Cricut Design Shop.
I had a vase and cauldron filled with candy corn candies on each side of the cake. But the vase had witch finger lollipops from the Dollar Tree poking out. I added some fun jeweled spider rings from Oriental Trading Co. to each finger too.
I served green juice in plastic bottles from Hoopla Events. To make the bottles a little more party read, I added a little vinyl (also from the Cricut Design Shop) to the front. Purple striped straws from Pick Your Plum were dressed up with witch hats. The little ones thought they were the best “baby” hats!
The drink dispenser was adorned with plastic spiders from Oriental Trading Co. I hot glued them directly to the dispenser and plucked them off after the party.
You cannot have a Witches Brunch without apples, so I made some candy apples with melted Jolly Ranchers. (Pinterest lies, it takes a lot longer than 5 minutes to melt them) and I had plain apples available too.
Old books were perfect Spell Books, and jars of eyeball candy and poison added just the right touch.
One of our favorite parts of this party were the hanging witch hats. I purchased them at the Dollar tree and they were easily hung with fishing line through the tops and stapled into the ceiling.
