Boo-Spectacular! Trunk or Treat

Hello friends!! It’s October and time to get the holiday parties going right?! I am super excited to participate in this year’s Trunk or Treat Blog Hop with some of my favorite party bloggers out there. You don’t want to miss out on checking out each blog to see the amazing talent from these creative women! I am lucky to have been included 🙂

It is my very first time coming up with ideas for a Trunk or Treat! My girls actually came up with the theme and name for this post! Yay for creative little girls that love to participate with my party photo shoots!

We started out by making a trip to our favorite store, the Dollar Tree! We picked up a few things and spent less than $10! The hanging ghosts at each end, the mini ghosts next to the donut holes and the ghost on the side table are all from there!

I crafted a couple of things like the jack-o-lantern banner hanging across, the table runner and the HAPPY HALLOWEEN and BOO signs with silver glitter! You can find these items in my etsy shop to purchase.

Inside the trunk I set up a cute Halloween stand from Target. I tied a ghost ribbon around it from Michael’s. I bought donut holes for $1 at my local grocery store. I dressed them up with party circles I punched and added spider stickers on them….aren’t they cute?

I set up a small table to the side of the car where I could put some more goodies for the kids!

The table has drinks, bags with candy, cups with Doritos and a basket with candy for kids to get some more! I added some home decor on the table to jazz it up!

Dress up the white bags and white cups with a ghost face by simply using a sharpie! My girls did that and something your kids could do to participate! We made orange kool-aid for the cups 🙂

You can find the white cups at the Dollar Tree as well.  Everything Is Just $1 At DollarTree.com!

And this is all from me, friends! You can re-create this Trunk or Treat with some decor from home and picking up a few things at your local grocery store and the Dollar Tree! It took me just a couple of hours to set this up….no stress and didn’t break the bank!! 😉

Happy early Halloween and let the festivities begin!
