If you are looking for a cute and easy Halloween Party, this post is for you. Our PTA Hospitality has done this Fa-BOO-lous Breakfast Party for the second year in a row for our Junior High FaBOOlous teachers and staff, and it always turns out to be such a hit!! It is a super fun way to say “thank you” to them for all that they do for our kiddos, and it’s easy to get together. It would also work for a Kids’ Halloween breakfast party too.
STEP 1: MAKE THE SIGN
Black construction paper or some kind of black paper (at least 13 sheets- can stencil letters on leftover construction paper)
Orange and white dot banner (found it at Target) or you can get dot scrapbook paper and make your own
Stencils- 3″ H for banner, 8″ H for “BOO”
Jute string- Hobby Lobby
Double-sided tape or glue/glue dots
Packing tape to hang sign
***Take one piece of the orange dot banner and lay on top of one black piece of paper. Trace around the orange dot banner (use chalk to see your line better), then cut about 1 1/2″ OUTSIDE that chalk line to give it a nice border. Turn the black paper over (back side) so you don’t see the chalk line, and glue/tape orange dot paper in middle of black paper.
***Do hole punches in black paper too (use holes in orange paper as reference). If you’re not using the target banner, you’ll need to put 2 hole punches in dot banner and black paper for the jute string to go through. TIP***Do the hole punches before you glue letters on so the string doesn’t cover your letter.***
***Trace your letters with the smaller 3″ stencils on black paper, cut out and glue or tape to orange dot banner.
Trace B-O-O letters using the bigger 8″ stencils on black paper, cut out and do 2 hole punches each. The “B” letter will have hole punches a little bit farther apart than the “O’s” because it will not lay right if they are too close together.
Start threading jute string through hole punches (LEFT hole first), entering from the BACK side of the banner, through both holes, and back through so that the string is showing on the banner (top) side. Cut 2 strings- top section ( U R SO) will be shorter than the bottom section (FABOOLOUS), leaving extra string to tape to wall.
STEP 2: PURCHASE PARTY SUPPLIES
PARTY SUPPLIES NEEDED:
1-2 Orange plastic table covers (we had 2 tables)
Plates- solid orange and orange/white patterned (Target)
Napkins – solid or orange/white patterned (Target)

Black and white bins/baskets (something black and white to hold food/plates in). Could add black and white ribbon to something also. (I bought my black & white striped baskets and black and white crates (with chalkboards) – all at Home Goods.
Ghost lights – Target
Boo light – Target
Orange cups (put white plastic silver ware in)
Chalkboard – both chalkboards came from Home Goods
****other halloween accessories like pumpkins, plastic serving trays, etc…. to add to decor.
