It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Nothing says fall and Halloween more than this Peanuts classic, am I right? This is a show I watched many times with my family when I was younger, and now I enjoy doing the same with my kids as well. Why not make this experience even more special with a Great Pumpkin party, perfect for a family movie night!
Oriental Trading has absolutely everything you need to host the ultimate Great Pumpkin Party or movie night! Plates, backdrops, stickers, favors and much more! You can invite some friends over and create a tradition your kids are sure to remember and cherish for years to come.
How to Host a Great Pumpkin Movie Night Party!
Set The Scene– As with any party, you need the right decor! Since the Great Pumpkin theme is in season September and October, you can hit the jackpot with Halloween decor! Oriental Trading has a great selection of basic Halloween items such as orange and black balloons, as well as Peanuts themed items to bring your movie night to life. I love these Great Pumpkin Paper lanterns, and Peanuts Halloween Hanging Swirls. These were the perfect addition to our party decor! You can also make a backdrop using table cloths and gluing pumpkins along the bottom to create a pumpkin patch look. Or you can add one of the Peanuts Halloween backdrops to your Oriental Trading order. So easy, so fun!
Snacks- What’s a party without snacks? There are so many fun Halloween and Pumpkin themed snack ideas, choose a few that your family will enjoy to go along with this fun theme. My top pics are Pumpkin Patch Pudding, Pumpkin Cookies, Candy Corn Popcorn Mix, Pumpkin Pie, and Apple Cider. These are really easy to make or even buy if you prefer, and of course a big hit with the kids!
Games– Play Pin The Nose on the Jack-o-lanterns. This is as simple as cutting and gluing orange and black paper. Great Pumpkin Bingo while you watch the show is so much fun, cross off parts of the show as you watch, and have a fun prize for the winner! Pumpkin decorating is a staple fall activity! You can paint pumpkins, or use a sticker decorating set like the one pictured from Oriental Trading. This is a no mess application and makes for a great party favor too!
Party Favors- If you decorate the pumpkins, that counts as a favor of course. I had to have these mini Peanuts Halloween Pails, they are so cute and a great way to carry a few treats. You can fill these with fun stickers, glow sticks, mini flashlights, bracelets, and maybe a few pieces of candy too! Again, simple and guarantee to be a hit with the kids!
Are you so excited for your Great Pumpkin Party? Whether you are having a movie night, or full on Halloween party, Oriental Trading has everything you need! I hope these ideas helped you out, and I hope you have a very Happy Halloween!
