So I love a good theme. Especially any sort of Halloween theme. I kind of go a little crazy in fact. I have hosted a few Halloween parties in my day, and while they have all been fun, I think I had more fun planning for this one than any other.
Cody and I teach a class of 6 & 7 year old children at church, and they have been filling up a jar of candy each week to "earn" a class party by bringing their scriptures with them each week. I kind of knew no matter what the jar looked like I was going to have the party in October though.
So while searching for a non spooky theme, I happened to notice candy corn stuff everywhere on pinterest. It was perfect. Vaguely Halloween related, but nothing scary about it. So I ran with it.
We had our party yesterday and it was so much fun. Seriously. So much fun.
To start, I may have gone a little bonkers and given myself a candy corn manicure. So much time spent on this and it doesn't even look that great. Argh.
(Side note, I bought these cute yellow ruffled baking cups, and they baked up so cute, but then totally pulled away from the cupcakes as they cooled. Boo. Not cute.)
It was super fun and perfectly timed (1.5 hours is the way to go) and everyone had fun. I even heard the phrase "best party ever!" bandied about. Haha. And that is my super candy corn themed blog post. The funniest thing, is that I don't even LIKE the candy, I just think it's cute.
