When I look back at the Halloweens of my childhood, I’d have to admit that the candy was my favorite part. Costumes and decorations came in a close second, but I can’t deny that I had (and still have) a crazy sweet tooth. With that in mind, I’m always looking for fun ways to add more candy to the Halloween festivities, and what better way to do that than with these mini ghost piñatas? Adorable hung in groups or individually, you could even hand these out as loot bags for your Halloween party this year!
I love the idea of giving my guests something a little different at my next summer party. This 3D pineapple invitation can be filled with trinkets and goodies to get friends and family excited about what’s to come. Mail these festive treasures out beforehand to get everyone pumped for the big day, or use them as treat boxes to surprise your pals when the fun is over.

Have you heard about the Crafting Community event at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs? Crafting Community is a laid back weekend retreat for families. It is a also creative retreat, so there are lots of fun, interactive workshops for kids and parents. The Ace is one of my favorite places and I cannot wait to take my family there again.
Here is the best part, Oh Happy Day is teaming up with our favorite striped clothing company, Splendid to give a reader the chance to win a trip for 4 to Crafting Community plus a $500 Splendid gift card! Entering is super easy, between today and August 30th, just click here to visit Splendid’s Facebook page and enter online. (Or, you can enter in store at one of Splendid’s locations. There will be a $500 Splendid gift card awarded to one runner up online and $100 gift cards awarded to runner ups at each Splendid location so there are lots of opportunities to win!)
ps: We made these mini pinatas favors inspired by the Crafting Community event. I love the idea of making unique party favors for each of your guests following a theme and fill them with goodies and surprises. Just hang them up on a wall and they double as decorations and favors to take home. Click through below for the complete DIY.

I don’t know about you, but we’ve been eating a lot of watermelon around our house lately. It’s such a huge part of our summer, so I couldn’t resist making one in pinata form. This one turned out so pretty, I don’t think I could break it! Instead, I’ll be using it as decoration for our next party (or maybe even for the 4th of July!) It would also be really cute paired with a few other summer treat pinatas, like Ice Cream Cones or Popsicles!
This might be my favorite pinata yet. This Giant Popsicle Pinata would be the perfect addition to any celebration! Make one for a popsicle themed party (yum!) or a festive summer barbeque. Everyone loves a cold treat, so it’s sure to be a hit either way! (PS – Have a little extra time? You might want to make a few of these too!)
