Sugar Skull Soiree

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! Last year, we hosted this dark, glam craft party for a creative middle schooler. When she reached out again this year, we definitely wanted to help! We got in some fun sugar skull party supplies and I was so excited when we had a chance to use them for this Halloween craft party. I figured the flowery, bright vibe of sugar skulls would be fun for girls their age.

Iram, the mother, loved the theme and picked up our sugar skull die cut plates and matched them with our rose gold scallop cups (love this combo!). These plates are a favorite of the season and you can pair them with lots of different paper products. She had picked up some napkins and a brightly colored table cloth that went with the theme. Made for a festive table!

The best feature of the setup? The backdrop inspired by the sugar skull plates! I thought it would be fun to enlarge the design and enhance the features. Middle school girls love taking photos and sharing them on social media, so we definitely wanted something fun for them to stand in front of. I tried my best to match the colors of the plate when picking out poster board. Helena got to work on the sugar skull masterpiece (one of my creative shop girls!), and it turned out better than I could imagine!

For their craft, the girls worked on decorating mini white pumpkins. I picked up some neon puff paints, glitter paint and sticker jewels for them to use. They were able to decorate to using the bright sugar skull designs and flowers as inspirations. Iram also hired one of our favorite entertainers, Just Face It, to paint the girls' faces with sugar skull designs.

Food wise, Iram kept it simple for dinner with Chick-fil-a nuggets. Then she had a little fun with the desserts and picked up ghost cookies and a festive bundt cake. It was a fun evening and it sounds like the girls had a great time together! We loved putting together another Halloween party for them, and were happy to hear how much they enjoyed the setup.

If you are looking for unique party supplies, and a twist on the traditional Halloween look, sugar skulls are a fun way to go. Want a more traditional look? We have so many great supplies for that as well! Stop in and get your supplies for the upcoming holiday!

Lots of Love,
