My middle daughter has a love/hate relationship with Halloween. She loves the imagination and creativity of decorations, recipes and costumes. She hates the “spooky” or “scary” parts of it. She loves dressing up, but she hates masks and many of the Halloween activities frighten her. So this year when she asked if we could have a Halloween party for her and her friends I was a little surprised. But together we headed to Oriental Trading and starting our Halloween party planning shopping. She found just the right theme for her party and it’s exclusively available at Oriental Trading Co. It’s Peanuts The Great Pumpkin Party headed to our home!

Peanuts It’s the Great Pumpkin Party Planning
To get our party started we placed an order for some really adorable items available only at Oriental Trading this year!
Peanuts® Halloween Character Picks: These character picks can be used for just about anything, but our plan is to use them to decorate cupcakes. I admit, while I can bake a good cupcake, I am terrible at decorating them. These character picks are so easy. Just insert into iced cake and it’s done. Since some people don’t like icing so it is also a great way to decorate their cupcakes without the icing. Aren’t they adorable?!
Peanuts® Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Craft Kit: I wanted to have a couple of activities for the kids to do but I admit I don’t want to clean up the mess of 20 some children all trying to carve pumpkins. With this decorating craft kit it’s not only easy to decorate their pumpkins but easy for me to clean up even during the party. Best of all these pumpkins will last a little longer since they aren’t carved. The stickers are very sticky, and settle well on the pumpkins. But after a few weeks outside I’m hoping I can peel them off so I can recycle the pumpkins in the flower beds.
Peanuts® Halloween Tablecloth: Just the right length for my dining room table where I’ll be setting some howling good foods to eat.

Peanuts® Halloween Cellophane Bags: I’ve picked these bags up to stuff with candy and prizes to make a great takeaway treat for all my guests. Available in different colors they feature all your favorite Peanuts characters.
Wrigley’s® Grab Bag Candy Assortment: Do you know how hard it is to keep the kids out of this candy?! If you have any doubt be sure to see our unboxing video. I admit that there are some of my favorite candies in here too. Yumm Skittles and Starburst!
Peanuts® Great Pumpkin Backdrop Banner: Our parties frequently have a “photo booth” and this Halloween is no different! But Oriental Trading mad it easy for me with a large backdrop I can use not only to add a festive touch inside the house or out but one where the parents can great a great photo opp. I admit my wall is smaller than the third panel which comes with this – so I’m using it to cover my front door for the Halloween season.
Peanuts® Halloween Sticker Scenes: This isn’t the first time I’ve ordered sticker scenes from Oriental Trading but it’s the first time we have been able to get Peanuts. I love the Easter Bunny and Christmas ones too. They are fun addition an activity to each party I’ve hosted and even the adults like to get in on the action. There’s plenty of stickers, I found that I can even add a few extra pieces of paper (in Halloween holiday colors) for those who want to create their own scenes.
But that’s not all that Oriental Trading has to offer you can save on your Halloween Costumes (Up to 30% off all costumes) and Halloween Supplies/Accessories (Up to 50% off)! Save yourself a trip to the store and pick up the your trick or treat or party Halloween Candy with the trouble of shopping in the store, the kids wanting to eat it and carrying those big bulky bags into the house.
Don’t forget – Money Saving Parent also has an adorable Snoopy Pumpkin Carving Stencil available for you to use!
The kids were so excited to get their box of party supplies – even the new pup got in on the action! See how they try to guess which is what from the bags as they unbox.
