Party Recap

When my son decided he wanted a party instead of going to a theme park for his 5th Birthday we both quickly thought of a cool theme which was the nightmare before Christmas! Only problem was that it was in August so no Halloween decor at the stores yet which led me to online shopping. I quickly came across all these really cool ideas and different props so I had the greatest idea of making most of everything myself to still have it be really cool and try to save a little money in the process. I got in way over my head with all these cool ideas I thought of but none the less it's been one of the best parties we've had ever! I think this is such a cool party theme to have and who cares if it isn't october yet that's what eBay and Amazon are for! Your creative side will run wild with this theme and the kids absolutely love it! Hope you enjoy the pics and all the hard work that was put into this party thanks!
