Mini Halloween Party in A Box | The Sweet Lulu Blog

Halloween Mini Party

Pretties Projects
My mom is a  teacher, so during summer vacation we would head out to the fabric store and flip through books & books of patterns. Once my sister and I decided on what we were going to be,  she would then spend the rest of break sewing our costumes.  She did this. every.single. year. I NEVER had a store bought costume, not once. Amazing, right?!
When Halloween night would finally roll around, rain or shine (and it was usually a freaking monsoon because we lived in Oregon) we would proudly debut our handmade costumes while my mom took us
 “power trick-or-treating” (kind of like power walking, but in costumes). The woman would go crazy (seriously nuts). We would be tired & wet, and she would happily shout, “Just one more house! Come on, guys! Let’s do this!” Her enthusiasm was contagious, so we would hit one more house…..which usually ended up being more like ten.
When it comes to Halloween, my mom is the queen, and I love her for it. So, we thought we would send her a little care package this year. I grabbed some of my favorite things from the shop and wrapped them up all pretty**. Here is a glimpse at what she will be getting…..

Of course, this mini party would be the funnest thing ever if we partied with her on Skype ……..but my Mom and technology…….well, that is a long story that we will save for another time.

  1. The story about your mom is hilarious. I have to admit, we started a tradition of taking the easy way out…we head to McMenamin’s Kennedy School each year for trick-or-treating. The place is packed with families, they hand out candy at every doorway, and you can do it all with a glass of wine in hand while staying warm and cozy! 🙂 Perhaps when my kids get older we’ll brave the “outside, as God intended” style of trick-or treating!!

    The party-in-a-box idea is one of my all-time favorite concepts…kinda like when I get a box of supplies from your shop in the mail! Happy dance for all the cuteness. 🙂


  2. This is a great article and I am glad I came across it. Since Halloween is soon approaching I decided to plan this years Halloween party. I have a lot of guests coming so I had to start buying stuff early. Events like this can be very expensive and food and such these days are not cheap. There are many ways to help you get quick cash for financial situations. I had this sort of issue and I decided to sell my structured settlement to help me out.
