After our first Halloween Dance Party a few years ago, we decided to bring the fun back and host another bash. This year, we hosted the event at the Huntington Free Library in Westchester Square. A historical library, we knew it would be the perfect place for a haunting good time! Take a look at some of the fun we had, and be sure to make it out to our next event!
Being an old library, all the space needed was some cob webs and a few scary touches to give it that haunted look. We used a lot of goodies we’ve collected from Oriental Trading over the years to decorate the tops of the tables and bookcases.
In the back, we decorated an old library cart with some spooky potions- perfect for kids to check out while waiting in line for some light bites from the Metro Center Applebees location. They provided us with some yummy finger food options- but we’re also excited to pay a visit to the Eastchester Road location for some of their new menu items- like their topped steaks with twisted potatoes- so good!
We were also so happy to have AquaBall on hand to quench everyone’s thirst! These fun naturally flavored water drinks are perfect to have on hand for Halloween since there are so many princesses and superheroes walking around! We love having these fun drinks on hand at all kinds of parties!
For the first hour of our party, we were so excited to have Clowns.com there to bring some excitement to the party and get our guests going. There was face painting, animal balloons, cotton candy, and then an awesome magic show as the grand finale. The kids all loved the magic show- and it was the perfect transition over to some freeze dance and music chairs!
Kids get plenty of candy on Halloween, so when we host an event we like to provide healthy snacking options. For our dance party, we had these fun Peas Please snack from Peeled Snacks. With a garden herb flavor, it was a hit among many of the kids- including the parents!
Of course, we had some fun crafting activities on hand for kids to create from Oriental Trading also. We had these mini pumpkin face decorating kits and had some skull heads on hand for the kids to decorate. Then they took a kit home to use on their own pumpkin.
Towards the end, we had a fun little scavenger hunt for the kids to find objects in a graveyard we created, and the winner received a family 4-pack of tickets to the New York Botanical Garden to enjoy their Halloween festivities. It was an awesome event and we can’t wait to host our next one!
