How’s this for a sweet Halloween party idea? Candy corn is such a cute and colorful mainstay of Halloween that it can inspire lots of kids’ Halloween party ideas. No scary monsters or wicked witches to freak out the little ones, just yummy goodness and bright colors to use for food and decorating ideas.
Our Sweet Treat Halloween Party Invitations set the theme and get the party started. Check out our Candy Corn Halloween Party Ideas Pinterest board for candy corn garland, a Do-It-Yourself banner and a table centerpiece idea.
We also found a few different dessert ideas, layered to look like candy corn, which add to the colorful décor: cheesecake mousse, ice cream cones, marshmallow snacks, or milkshakes. You can even make a candy-corn costume for the guest of honor, or hats for all the party guests! With a little imagination, it’s not hard to come up with Halloween party ideas to fit your candy corn theme.

Whether you’re looking for kids’ pirate party ideas for Halloween or for any time of year, this pirate party from celebrations.com looks like a swashbuckling good time. And it all starts with the unexpected arrival of a pirate mask Halloween party invitation in the mail—talk about building excitement ahead of time! The text on the invitation can be changed to work for either a Halloween party or a birthday party, and the colors are a great starting point for all of your kids pirate party ideas.
I like to carve pumpkins for Halloween—so much so, that when my kids were younger, I’d let all three of them carve their own pumpkins and then I’d buy an extra one for myself so that I could carve my own. That’s four pumpkins-worth of slimy, stringy, orange-y goop getting flung around my kitchen. I’ve always thought that if you’re going to make a mess, you might as well go all the way.
But that’s nothing. One of my team members here at Pear Tree has a neighbor who throws a pumpkin carving party every year for the whole neighborhood. They clean out their heated garage, put up some orange lights and Halloween decorations, and line the floor with a plastic tarp. (Wish I’d thought of that.) They provide the kid-friendly carving tools, but it’s BYOP—Bring Your Own Pumpkin.
What a fun, let’s-get-messy party that must be—and how grateful the guests must be that it’s in somebody else’s house! As if that’s not enough, these generous neighbors serve chili, hot cider, and snacks for those who aren’t carving or need a break. Then, before everyone goes home, they put candles in all the pumpkins and turn out the lights in the garage to admire their spooky creations. Ooooooo!
It’s not hard to throw a pumpkin carving party of your own, as long as you have the space and don’t mind the clean-up. (Just think. If you roasted all the pumpkin seeds you’d have enough to last a year!) You can make it a potluck if you don’t feel like cooking, or keep it simple with snacks and beverages.
