Halloween party movie nights are a staple for my little family around this time of year! We plan movie night parties with a couple of friends a few times in the month of October! It’s so fun getting together with a small group, and watching Halloween movie classics, or watching the latest in Halloween hits. We have treats, and sometimes even dress our kiddos up for it as well.
This year I bought the new Ghostbusters
at my local Walmart to watch for our Halloween movie night with friends!! none of us had seen it yet, and we were all so excited to get together with yummy treats to watch the movie. I purchased the Ghostbusters Extended Edition on Blu-Ray
, that comes with over 15 more minutes not seen in theaters, and the most hilarious 3 hours worth of extras. I also picked up some fun decorations for a spooky, yet modern, tablescape! And found everything I needed to make Halloween themed desserts, all at Walmart! So very convenient! Today I am sharing a simple way to create a fun, modern, Halloween themed tablescape!
For this tablescape, I went with a pretty, yet kid-friendly theme! Since we were watching the new Ghostbusters, I decided to incoprorate "ghosts" into some of my treats! Here is what you need to get the perfect Halloween Party tablescape for a movie night with friends:
1. A fun table-runner. I chose a table-runner that can easily transition from a party, to every day use! I picked this black and white one up, because not only is it super cute for year around use, but goes so well with a Halloween theme too! Find a table-runner at your local Walmart, they have so many to choose from!
2. Pick up some fresh flowers. I am in love with having fresh flowers in my home, and think it can make any party, look so much better! I picked up these white flowers for $4.97 from Walmart, and distributed them into different vases! Another fun idea would be to add food coloring to the water, to make it a little spookier and fun!
3. Go down the seasonal isle at Walmart to find different fun party favors and decorations! I found those two plastic buckets (filled with treats and goodie bags) for just 97 cents each! Kids love party favors, but lets face it, that candy was for the adults too! ;)
4. Make a dessert that POPS! I decided to make a Rice Krispie Pie, and added some fun candy ghosts on top! I got the ghosts from the Halloween section at Walmart! They were a great addition to the pie, and looked awesome on the table! Make a simple dessert into a fun themed surpirse, just by adding little details like ghosts, eyeballs, or making them pumpkin shaped!
5.Snacks Snacks snacks! You need to get snacks for your table that everyone will love, but that also go along with whatever themed you're trying to create! I found some trail mix at Walmart that was the perfect color for my Halloween movie night party! I found a chalkboard jar, wrote "BOO" on the front, and added the trail mix inside! Its so easy, and adds so much character to a party!
Try making your own fun tablescape at home using my tips!! I love that I can save so much money by going to Walmart, and that it is a One-stop-shop for all my party needs!
I recently signed up for Walmart Family mobile PLUS
, my plan comes with Unlimited Talk, Text, Data; 10GB 4G LTE plus a free movie (rental, new release = $7 value) on VUDU every month, per line for $49.88. I seriously couldn’t believe we could download a free movie rental each month to my phone, and plan on taking advantage of the awesome offer!! We bought an HDMI cord to hook my phone easily up to our smart TV, and we stream the movie directly to our family room tv. I bought the LG K7 phone, its currently only $49.88, on Rollback from $89.88...which is an insane deal.
I love how Walmart Family Mobile
is so affordable for a family on a budget, yet comes with so many extras that you don’t feel like you’re missing out on anything. I left the store paying just $19.88 (from $25) for the Nano Starter Kit, and won’t even get billed until the following month. There are Walmart Family Mobile events in store, where they can explain how to activate a new line, and teach you all about how you can experience Ghostbusters in virtual reality! At events find a brochure with details on plan and VR experience + a plastic 3D hologram. Check out the Walmart Family mobile hub to see where an event is happening near you!
Sony also partnered with Walmart Family Mobile, to give VR (Virtual Reality Experience) to all customers who activate new lines on any rate plan from 10/1-10/31. You’ll receive a code providing a free download of the New Ghostbuster VR Experience.
Here is how that process works:
-You first Demo at Walmart Store, then purchases Walmart Family Mobile product and gets a unique code
-You visit GhostbustersVR.com
-Register and Redeem code
-Download app from Apple Store or Google Play to access content!
EASY AS CAN BE! :)
We had such a great movie night with some of our good friends, and laughed our little bums off while watching the new Ghostbusters! I plan to have many more fun parties, and love that I can save money by shopping at Walmart using my Walmart Family mobile. Head on over to your local Walmart and check out their awesome deals. Happy (almost) Halloween!
