A Hotel Transylvania Halloween Movie Party – The Decor

For the decor of our movie party, we chose typical Halloween colors that also happen to match the characters from the movie (Blobby, Drac, Winnie, Dennis etc): orange, purple, green and black.

We set up a table filled with Halloween party treats, all decorated with tableware and pumpkins  to match our party color scheme.

For the table backdrop, we created a balloon garland in our party palette. You can DIY a similar garland simply by stringing balloons of various sizes onto a piece of string. Then hang the string onto your wall with the help of wall hooks. Once on the wall, you can hot glue smaller balloons to fill the gaps.

The balloons garland is such an easy decor piece, and despite adding the wow factor to any blank wall, it only took us (two people)  about 1 hour to assemble, from blowing up the balloons to hanging the garland on the wall. Obviously, if you have more help you can cut the time considerably.

I love how it also doubles as a fabulous photo-booth backdrop!

Of course, no Halloween party is complete without costumes! So we turned to the movie characters for inspiration to create Winnie and Dennis costumes for our party.

Instructions:

1) Ear headbands: Trace the outer ear template fours times onto the underside of your faux fur fabric and cut. Trace and cut the inner ear onto pink felt twice using the template provided.

2) Loop the craft wire as shown, making it slightly smaller than the ear width. Hot glue the wire to the underside of one of the ears.

3) Hot glue the other ear on top of the wire to sandwich it between the two parts. Make sure to hot glue the edges, pulling the fur together to hide the side seams. Repeat for your other ear.

4) Hot glue the pink felt inner ear piece onto the center of each ear piece.

5) Once you have a set of ears, simply twist the craft wire onto your headband as tightly as possible, using pliers to secure the ends and tuck them into the ears so they won't be sharp or visible. Hot glue a white pearl on top of each ear. Bend and shape the ear to make it more realistic.

6) The tail: Roll a rectangle of faux fur on itself, hot gluing as you roll to secure it in place. Hot glue a piece of black elastic to the top before closing completely.

7) Winnie's choker: Hot glue the studs to the front of the choker.

8) Make a small incision onto the front of the choker and insert the metal hoop through.

9) Winnie's cuffs: Cut a small rectangle of faux fur, then hot glue Velcro pieces to each end.

10) Winnie's t-shirt: Print and cut the skull template onto white paper. Use this template to trace the skull onto your white heat transfer vinyl. Cut and use the vinyl manufacturer's instructions to transfer your cut design onto the front of the pink t-shirt.

DIY Winnie's Make-Up: 

1) Start applying dark eye-shadow as shown to form the contours of the eyes and forehead.

2) Fill in the area with dark and light brown shadow, all the way from forehead to the corner of the eyes.

3) Add a light brown eye shadow to upper eyelid, and a darker shadow to the lid socket.

4) Draw a wolf's nose outline as shown using the black eyeliner.

5) Fill in the entire nose area in black, then add a little light brown eye-shadow to the outer edges of the nose.

6) Add a dab of pink lipstick to the lips and cheeks and blend. Finish the look with the hair in two ponytails on the side and with a quiff on the top of the head.

A Hotel Transylvania Halloween Movie Party – The Treats

Because this is movie party, we had to serve popcorn! But in cute Hotel Transylvania popcorn boxes, of course. These printable popcorn boxes add to the movie experience, and guests can personalize theirs with the selection of candy on offer (the gummy bats and eye balls were my favs!)

To complete our treats table, we made “Blobby” green jello shots inspired by one of bonus content recipes in the Blu-ray edition. Doesn't it look so fun? The kiddos loved it! :)
