Hocus Pocus was my favorite movie growing up, paired with a passion for playing dress up, which led to a fashion degree, it was inevitable that Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I even celebrated my birthday a month early one year as a little girl so I could have a Halloween theme and everyone could dress up! So when Hudson got an invite to a Halloween Party last week, we couldn’t be more excited! I made him a Woody costume, (he’s going as Buzz Lightyear for Trick or Treat!), and we baked his favorite chocolate chip cookies. He ended up coming down with a cold virus and pink eye, and missed the party, so we made the most of the situation and decided to throw a party at our house this past weekend!
My best friends and I all have kids around the same age, and we usually get them together once a week for play dates so they’ve grown to become best friends.
I asked Hudson which movie he wanted to play at his party, suggesting a few toddler-friendly movies, and he replied, “Can we watch Hocus Pocus? I just love it!” How cute is that? We enjoyed cider, PSLs and yummy comfort food, a chili bar, veggies and desserts.
The kids decorated pumpkin shaped cookies, which also served as dessert!
Pumpkin painting was next. It was so much fun watching how they each chose to paint and decorate their pumpkins!
Hudson made a clown pumpkin!
They each dressed up in fun little costumes! Hudson was so excited to be Woody. I included him in each step of the design process, so he couldn’t wait to wear the full costume!
The kids had so much fun, this may turn into our annual party! Do you have any fun Halloween traditions?
