It took lots of planning and preparation for all of it: getting costumes shipped to us, decorating the condo, decorating for our Halloween pizza dinner, the actual pizza dinner (if only you could've been a fly on the wall listening to my friend order pizza on the phone from Pizza Hut..."Haeundae... Jung-Dong... six fifteen, six one five..."), the Halloween playlist on Spotify, cupcake decorating, and finally trick-or-treating (on another Halloween post), BUT it was so completely worth it to have two happy boys who were tuckered out at the end of the night. :)
My friend, Cassie, and her kids, Greenlee & Liam, came over for a pizza dinner, to play, and to decorate & eat cupcakes before trick-or-treating together in our condo. I set up the table for the kids with decorations I made as well as super cute Halloween themed plates, napkins, and cups thanks to Cassie's mom.

|I made these place markers with the kids' names on the bat's wing. I was very pleased with how they turned out!|

I was originally going to draw a jack-o-lantern face on these oranges and leave one per kids' plate at the table, but I got an even better idea when I sat down with my marker!
I wrote Connar and Parker a sweet note on one side of their orange and their character's name that they dressed up as on the other side of the orange.
For the other kids' oranges, I drew a jack-o-lantern and HAPPY HALLOWEEN message, on opposite sides of the orange.
