Mermaids` Makings

Our Not So Scary Halloween Party

This was our first ever Halloween Party.

We enjoyed the preparations as well as the party itself.

As  Lil Mermaid doesn`t like things that are too scary and I don`t like vomiting pumpkins and bloody eyeballs we decided to have a not so scary Halloween Party.

I have written about most of the party things separately so I`m not going to repeat them.  There is just one thing to mention- next time I won`t use a plastic table cloth as it just doesn’t look nice.  I’ll buy a nice cotton one instead

And for the table decor I used little pumpkins with pinecones and mod podged leaves.. some little rats and spiders joined the fun as well.

I saw these little cuties somewhere on the net but can`t remember where. I cut the bananas in half and put them onto the plate.. but they were too slippery.. so I sprinkled some choc sprinkles to keep the ghosts from slipping away.


Banaanid lõikasin, pooleks ja asetasin taldrikule aga nad sindrinahad libisesid taldriku äärde. Raputasin siis veidi shokolaaditükikesi, et takistada neid libisemast. Mingi variant oli see ka, et banaanikummitusi kookoshelveste sees veeretada. Silmadeks shokolaadipisarad.

We had so much fun making these cake toppers. They make such wonderful table decorations.

These are our inside decorations…

… and  our outside one.

My little one made the sign and I tore the edges and inked them.

We made some yoghurt pot ghosts with the girls..

.. and some spiders’ webs. As for games, we played “Don’t eat Jack”, “Pumpkin, Pumpkin, Where’s the Pumpkin?” and a “Chocolate Pumpkin Spoon Race”. “Don’t eat Jack” was a new game for me but we played the pumpkin game when I was a child – calling it “Chick, Chick, Don’t Show”

Just look at our CUTE ghosts!

Some Halloween Buntings.
