DIY Themed Banner
Just like rooms, parties need a large focal point - a statement piece that makes a huge impact. For this year’s Halloween party, we created a large art banner based on a vintage palmistry board game. It's pretty easy to do yourself, and here's how:

DIY CUSTOMIZED PLATES
Thrifted plates were customized with image transfers to create special one-of-a-kind tableware for the party. Read more about the process:
DIY FAVOR BAGS
Each kid received a muslin bag filled with chocolate coins, a fortune telling fish, and fortune cookies. The bags were decorated with easy iron-on transfers using images from the backs of tarot cards and Alexander the Magician, and embellished with some ribbon.
