October has finally arrived and it’s time to start planning who you’re going to BOO this year!

You've Been Boo'd Halloween Neighbor Candy Jar #booitforward

You’ve Been BOO’d is a fun Halloween tradition that takes place across many neighborhoods each year. This family-friendly gift giving game begins by secretly leaving treats upon a neighbor’s doorstep, along with a special letter for that family to #BOOItForward. As each family participates in this simple gesture, Halloween spirit is spread door to door, creating a tradition the whole neighborhood can enjoy!

The girls love to gather for crafting parties, so this year we put together a fun crafternoon for each guest to create a BOO Kit to kickoff the tradition in their own neighborhood.

Putting a crafty spin on the traditional BOO, we put together Terra Cotta Pumpkin Candy Jars and filled them with tasty treats from the candy bar.

Halloween Party Table Setting Ideas #booitforward

• The Crafting Party Table •

Inexpensive pizza pans anchored each place setting. The pans not only create a nice solid workspace for each guest to craft, but help keep any mishaps at bay.

The pans were topped with a piece of cardstock and a decorative BOO Banner to set the theme.
