Last Minute Halloween Ideas

Y’all, we are coming down the homestretch… Halloween is almost here!  If you’re still not fully prepared, you’re in luck because I’ve got you covered today!  From costume ideas to a spooky play list to party snacks to simple décor ideas, I have everything you need right here in one place. 


If you don’t yet have costumes for Halloween, you’re in luck, because Target has their costumes and accessories 30% off today!  You can shop the deals here, and you can see all of my favorite Target costumes picks for the whole family here.  Not enough time to wait for delivery?  No problem.  Add to your cart to get the discount, and then select the pickup option to pick up at your local store.


Graphic Tees

And if you’re not into costumes, but you’re still wanting to be festive, you can see all of my favorite fall and Halloween graphic tees here.  Most of them deliver in just two days with an Amazon Prime account, so it’s not too late to get one in time for Halloween on Monday!


Party Snacks

Looking for an easy snack to make for a Halloween party?  I’ve got you covered!  These candy corn fruit skewers are easy to make, they’re so cute, and you may already have all of the ingredients on hand!

You can also check out this post for some easy Halloween charcuterie ideas… and I provided a nice, long list of orange, black, and white foods so you don’t have to rack your brain to figure out what to include.

Play List

We have a family Halloween play list that we listen to on repeat all October, and you can see the details here.  It’s the perfect mix of fun and spooky, and it’s appropriate for the whole family!



We love board books in our family, especially when it comes to holiday board books!  I shared all of our favorite Halloween books for kids here and here… there were so many that I had to split them into two posts!


And finally, if you’re looking for some decorating inspiration (it’s never too late to tape up some bats, y’all!) check out these posts here and here. 

T-minus FIVE days until Halloween, y’all!  Are you ready?! 


  1. Loving all the fun graphic tees and of course the snacks! I'm excited that Serena will be able to wear her costume four times this year, so we are finally getting more than 1 use out of it. Trunk or treat at school, party at her gymnastics gym, a party at a friend's house and of course trick-or-treating <3

  2. What great ideas and those graphic tees are so fun! Of course I love the charcuterie snack board

  3. Thanks for the playlist and oohhh I am a sucker for charcuterie, that boards looks delicious and festive!


  4. This is the ULTIMATE Halloween list! This year will be weird for me because we will be out of town for Halloween.

  5. Love the playlist! Will definitely download some on our Amazon Music app!

  6. Checking out that playlist now - be fun for our pumpkin carving this evening!

  7. Girl, what a blog post! I remember scrolling through before - but wow! You included so much good finds!
