Halloween Fa-BOO-lous Breakfast Party

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.




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

Hole punch


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.




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)

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.

*** The crates are turned upside down so we could put boxed donuts & other goodies on top of them.  Love how this creates interest by having several items at different levels.

Cream cheese- strawberry, blueberry, honey pecan.  Kraft Philly brand.

Halloween-Fall Foyer

Hi and Happy Sunday!  I have gotten my Halloween-Fall foyer completed, and wanted to show yall some fun pics.  If you are heading over from my fall dining room or my fall living room, welcome also.  

I started with these 2 cubby bookshelves that I found at Home Goods a couple of years ago, and just pushed them together so that I could have 8 cubes.  I love how versatile they are.  I can use them as separate pieces- like as night stands, or together as a console or sofa table.


I have loved the different shades of aqua/teal/mint with orange for Fall decorating for several years, and decided to add the black and white this year. 

The striped baskets and love tote are also from Home Goods, and make the cubbies come to life.  They act as a grounding base/neutral for my other colors, plus they give the eye somewhere to rest.


The cubbies are also great for adding your kiddos’ art work they have made over the years, candles, cute Halloween pics, candy, shoes, etc.  The possibilities are endless. 

The Blue love pillow is also from Home Goods – I just added the orange and blue ribbons to bring in my colors.



Here is a view from our front door before I added the lights.  The spa blue lamps add additional light at night, plus add a big punch to the cubbies to tie in the other blues.


Here is what it looks like with the ghost lights, and the BOO lit up. 

Both of these lights are from Target.








Have a very Happy Halloween!! love & hugs 🙂
