Halloween Treats Buffet Style


When it comes to the holidays like Halloween right now I tend to do a little extra. My son is 17 so he's already outgrown dressing up for Halloween, and with my daughter being in middle school now I'm sure it won't be much longer until she's outgrown it too. So for these last few remaining years I'm going to enjoy it while she still wants to dress up and do fun things with her friends. Because after that I'll be waiting until I have grand-kids to be able to have as much fun. Living in the country we really don't get a ton of trick-or-treaters so I usually have to go to a friends house if I want to pass out candy. Or like we are doing this year let my daughter have some friends over for a mini-Halloween party. We thought it would be a good way for her to get to know some of her new middle school friends, and of course it allows me to do that "little extra" for Halloween. We are having some of the kids come over one afternoon after school for a few hours to play some Halloween themed games, and of course pick out some fun treats to take home with them.

To make things a little different I decided it would be fun to do a Halloween buffet. It seems like now days there are so many restrictions on what kids can and can't have so I thought this would be a great way to offer them the choice of what they want for their treats. Plus it was a lot of fun for me to get it all together and ready for them to dig in!

For my Halloween treats buffet I used a fun Halloween themed table runner, orange candy buckets, stress eyeballs, mini stress putty, Halloween themed pretzels, and an assortment of candy. It was super easy to do through ordering off the Oriental Trading website under Halloween Decor and Halloween Headquarters. I love being able to shop for everything in one place. It saves a ton of time and I don't even have to leave my house. Plus it's always fun seeing my daughter's reaction when the big ole box arrives and she gets to see what all I ordered.

Now to wait a few more weeks until it's closer to Halloween for our little Halloween Gathering. In the meantime here's to hoping I can keep it all hidden good enough to for the supplies to last until then!
