A Scheme Scream!

Halloween is almost here! We love any reason to throw a Scheme Theme party, and Halloween is just another excuse. If you are in need of some last minute decor for your upcoming Halloween party, here are some ideas we love:

Spider Gems

These are the only spiders we would ever call pretty! Use these (not so) creepy crawlers as place-card holders or decorative accents. Design Sponge has a tutorial on how to make them here.

Halloween Dessert Table

This gorgeous dessert buffet by Shauna Young Dessert Tables was created using items found at Target. You can download a coordinating invitation and the candy bar wrappers here.

Pumpkin Ice Bucket

Hollow out a pumpkin to use as an ice bucket or serving bowl. You can find step by step directions here

Cobwebs

A few fake cobwebs can go a long way. Add them to mirrors and buffet tables to make your party a little spookier! Photos courtesy of Martha Stewart.

Keep Calm and Scary On

You can download this clever print here for free!

Let us know if you incorporate any of these ideas into your Halloween parties. We would love to see pictures. Have a Happy Halloween, Schemers!


Scheme Theme: Little Rascals Party

We are so excited to share an amazing Little Rascals party with you! The party was based off the movie Little Rascals and the kids loved it.

The Details:

The party was held in a warehouse to give the feel of a clubhouse to the guests. After showing the “Secret Sign” (wiggle your hand under your chin), the boys came through the clubhouse door.

The girls had to sneak in a separate door to get to the party.

Inside, the clubhouse was set up with all the best moments from the movie for a Little Rascals party.

Honoring the prizewinning go-cart, The Blur:

Snacks were served from the famous lunch date Spanky and the gang tried to sabotage.  Grape soda (we didn’t pour ours through an old boot), crunchy peanut butter ‘sand‘wiches, Cracker Jacks and cupcakes.

Of course there were Pickles for a Nickel!

Even Petey made it to the party. There were doggy treats for Petey and Petey’s Puppy Chow in dog bowls for kids.

Favors were stacked in paint cans and filled with mischievous toys–whoopie cushions, scary bugs, silly disguises and lollipops.

The Party:

When the kids got inside the clubhouse, they each picked out a Spanky inspired beanie cap.

This kids worked hard on building a clubhouse… a smaller version they could take home. Instructions were written on the table so they knew step by step how to build a flawless clubhouse.

Snack Time! Grape Soda, peanut butter sandwiches and cupcakes were served on tin plates with hand drawn placemats on the tablecloth. A magician performed some tricks. He wasn’t as good a some magician Singapore are but still did a good job.

Uh oh!  Alfalfa accidentally burned down the clubhouse!

A sidewalk chalk drawn burning clubhouse and water balloons to put the fire out, allowed the kids play outside in the beautiful weather.

At the end of the party, each guest got a bag of bait for their next fishin’ trip.
