Happy Boo Day-Chucky's Birthday Party

So Chucky's Birthday was on September 30th and he told me the Tuesday before that he wanted a birthday party!!! Yeah, I was freaking out;} I had 4 exams that week and a party to plan!??
I decided that we would have it on October 2nd, what we were going to do.....no clue!
I started googling 'Halloween Party Ideas.' Well I didn't get any ideas that I could use for his party, so I got on Etsy and I found this awesome shop Paper Glitter. The owner was absolutely amazing! I sent her a convo right before closing time and the night before the party to purchase the Halloween Party Kit! She accommodated me and then some, I had a problem downloading them{not on her side} she accommodated me again, then for some reason they wouldn't print!!!  I got it figured out 'after' I sent her a convo yet she was still very accommodating. Come to find out I just had to update Adobe! If you are ever on the market for adorable printables with EXCELLENT customer service then Paper Glitter is your place!!
We had Sno Cones, Caramel Apples, Pop Corn, A Buffet of Candy, Mummy Dogs, Cupcakes and a lot more! They played games, bobbed for apples and had a blast! Even though I did it all in 24 hours I think it turned out great!
Look how cute Chucky's party turned out:

Brain Juice
{I bought the container at Walmart}
The Dessert Table

The popcorn box my brother made to hold the popcorn!
He used Halloween scrapbook paper, tape and a knife to make the holes.
I used this tutorial to make the cones.

This is another view of the desserts & printables that I used.
I bought all of the glass jars at the Dollar Store. I made the cup cake stand out of a plate & candle stick both from the Dollar store. I applied E-6000 to the candle stick, placed a heavy book ontop & let dry overnight.

Cupcake toppers from Paperglitter's Halloween Party Kit
I couldn't find my circle hole punch so I used zig-zag scissors to cut them out.

Skull ice cube mold that I got at Walmart.

Sno Cone syrups with bottle wrappers from Paperglitter's Halloween Party Kit.
{Can you tell I did them at 4:00 in the morning?}

Close up of Paperglitter's Editable Halloween Party Kit & close up of the mummies I made out of Oreo Cookies from this tutorial. I didn't have eyes so I used black frosting in a tube with a toothpick. I also tried it with the Nutter Butters for Ghosts, but forgot to seprate them before adding the mummies 'bandages' so they all ended up being mummies;}
A BIG Thank you to Linnette fom Paperglitter, my mom & my brother for all of your help without all of you this wouldn't have turned out so great! I appreciate it and I know that Chucky does too! Happy Halloween;}
