It’s October and officially my favorite month of the year.
It begins with our anniversary (tomorrow) and ends with Halloween which is such a fun time now that we have little ones. I love everything about this month. But one of my favorite things about it is our neighborhood’s tradition of “BOOing” each other.
Today I’m thrilled to share our BOO Kit party I put together to prepare for BOOing later this month. A BOO Kit party is simple.
You could invite a few friends over (and their kids if you’d like) to enjoy Halloween treats and prepare BOO Kits with a fun “BOO Kit buffet.” I filled our BOO kit buffet with baskets, pencils, tattoos, glow sticks, Mars Chocolate Mix Fun Size candies (Save $2.00 on on ONE (1) 6pk 8oz Cans or TWO (2) 2L and 2 bags of Mars® Candy), A&W 8oz Halloween cans, a Boo Kit printable (get yours here for free) and more.
Each guest can put together a BOO kit or two to take back to their own neighborhood.
We served some simple treats for our guests and kept the party fun and festive. And we made fun little party favor baskets for each guest too.
I think that the best part was creating BOO kits to surprise our neighbors.
Steps to create a BOO basket
- Pick up a basket or fun bag
- Fill it with Halloween themed items for any age group
- Add your favorite candies such as M&M’s®, SNICKERS®, TWIX® or MILKY WAY®.
- Insert a “We’ve been BOO’d” printable.
- Cut out the sign.
- Fold the greeting card
- Include the card and sign when gifting these fun BOO bundles.
- Drop it off on a neighbor’s front porch. Ring the doorbell and leave before they catch you. What a fun way to spread some Halloween cheer!
We filled the little Halloween dot bag with mini candies. Such fun!
I love putting together fun and festive table settings. I used a fun $4 “spooky fabric” as a table runner. I love the texture it added. Cute plates, placemats and straws were a good way to add color. You could easily use plain items and instead focus on fun napkins or printable placemats to save money.
I find that simple parties make our guests just as happy as elaborate ones. I’ve been focusing on just a few main spaces lately rather than everything. For this party, we ate simple finger foods and the main activity was putting together BOO kits.
White pumpkins are always a good idea in the fall. I find that I use them for every event we have plus love keeping them on our table.
Free fall and Halloween printables are also a good idea. You can always find links to them on Pinterest.
