Growing up with a December birthday meant that we often would put on gingerbread house making contests during my birthday parties. While my technique consisted mostly of eating and adding as much candy as possible, I love some of the ideas below–the monochromatic pink house, the log cabin, and the all-white gingerbread house, in particular!

I find a tiny spider more fear-inducing than any zombie or ghost in a movie. Even looking at a photo of a spider makes me start frantically brushing off my arms and back, convinced I have one crawling on me! If you want to throw a truly creepy Halloween party, I recommend one themed around everyone’s least favorite creepy crawlers. Take inspiration from these relatively cute spider decorations and party ideas, and expand it from there!

Halloween is my favorite holiday for throwing parties.

This inspiration board features some pumpkin invitations and decor ideas.
I formed this pumpkin-themed event around a Cardstore Pumpkin Stack Halloween invitation. Have you seen our sneak peak of Halloween cards yet? Here’s a couple others that would be great for a pumpkin-themed bash.
