Everyone loves a good Halloween Party and they’ll be thrilled to come to yours when they see this Bat Eyes Beware Halloween invitation in the mail. Our friends at celebrations.com used our Halloween invitation to inspire these bat theme Halloween party ideas that are family friendly, “frightfully fun and not overdone.” The invitation (and we have several Halloween invitations to choose from) inspired the Halloween party ideas, from bat decorations to fang-embellished cupcakes to vampire mocktails.
At the table, spooky bat shapes and bat eyes decorated the placemats, drink glasses and serving trays. Black napkins and black & white polka dots added to the décor, with yellow and orange candycorn used as accent colors.
Marshmallow fangs and beady cherry eyes turned red velvet cupcakes into vampires for dessert. And for beverages, guests could choose their potion: either blood-red mocktails made from crushed jolly ranchers, cherry 7-Up and red Twizzlers, or a black-licorice infused version. But it wouldn’t be a party without blindfolds and jello, now would it? Fun activities like the classic Mummy Wrap game and the Lucky Dip game for kids made the party a huge hit.

What do you do for a little boy’s October birthday? Are there Halloween birthday ideas that aren’t Halloween-y? Three-year-old Alexander is at the perfect age for a trip to a pumpkin farm, complete with a petting zoo, corn maze, jumping castle and lots of other great fall activities for kids.
“We aren’t doing a ‘Halloween’ theme—more like a ‘Pumpkin’ theme,” says Alex’s mom, Heather, who was looking for Halloween birthday ideas that weren’t too “Halloweenish.” She chose Pear Tree’s Line-up of Pumpkins Halloween Birthday Invitation because “the colors are NOT black and orange! Purple and orange are much better for a birthday party and gender neutral. I didn’t want black and orange.”
Alex and his friends will be enjoying pizza and pumpkin-shaped cupcakes, and Heather will be decorating the table with green, orange and purple colors “with the inspiration being the invitation.” Pumpkin-themed food, decorations and plenty of kid-friendly activities make for a fall birthday that is sure to bring plenty of smiles, just like the happy pumpkins on our Halloween invitation!
