Inspired By This DIY Budget Halloween Party

This party only looks complicated.

October 25, 2013

Nadia from mamemima sent us photos from a Halloween party she hosted for her son and we were blown away. She designed all the paper goods herself, made all the decorations and created a delicious spread of (no baking required!) goodies, but even better… she told us how to do it!

Halloween Party 1

Nadia found a cute Halloween font on Dafont and used it for her invitations, decorative signs (in IKEA frames) and banner. The decorations were purchased at the Dollar Store and Target. Read on to find out more…


The bat silhouettes are made from black card stock and stuck to her wall with blue painter’s tape. She printed the banner herself on white cardstock. Plastic skeletons (from the Dollar Store) hang from the chandelier and the black and white fabric on the table is from IKEA. Black baskets filled with treats are from Target.

For entertainment they played two games: guessing games with monsters eyes and chocolate pumpkins (from the Dollar Store) and Halloween Bingo that she created on her computer and printed in cardstock.


Why keep your utensils in a plain old cup when this is a Halloween party? She covered glass containers with crepe paper and added plastic eyes. Much spookier!


The ghosts are lollipops covered with white paper napkins, tied with twine and a face drawn with a Sharpie.


She used orange frosting on the below chocolate covered cookies to make them more festive. The cups hold orange jello.

Nadia also created some Halloween candles with plain white candles and black electrical tape. I think they’re nice enough to use year round. Find out more about the candles on her website.


Thank you, Nadia, for sharing your photos and telling us how to create a Halloween party on a budget! Check out her blog, mamemima for more stylish interiors and events for kids.
