I’m the first to dive into the haunted and horrifying for Halloween, but I also know that some Halloween stuff can be a bit too intense for younger kids. I’ve styled tons of Halloween parties for kids in the past, but this year I decided to go with a cutesy Vampire Bat theme! Friendly vampire bats are the perfect way to pay homage to traditional Halloween blood-sucking vampires without being too scary for young children. Read on to see how I set this Cute Vampire Bat Kid’s Halloween Party up!
How to Create a Not-So-Scary Cute Vampire Bat Kid’s Halloween Party

First, I hung a Bat Print Plastic Tablecloth Roll on a blank wall. I embellished it and made it more 3D by hanging a Bat Piñata and paper bats from a Halloween Bat Decorating Kit. Surrounding the backdrop, I added a balloon garland made from lavender and lime colored balloons, with black and white Bat-Printed Balloons.
In front of the backdrop, I set up my dessert table. I placed a lavender cake stand with unfrosted cupcakes adorned with neon plastic vampire teeth and bat picks in the center of the table, and then added syringes of frosting and sprinkles. This is a fun way to allow kids to “inject” their own personality into their Halloween desserts! Then, on either side of the desserts, I set out trays of cute bat cups with straws, stands of plush bat favors, and more paper bat decorations.
Next, I set the main table. In lieu of a table runner, I sprinkled bat confetti and bat squishies down the center of the table. I also included a few more clear coffin containers with neon vampire teeth favors.
My place settings included DIY Placemats I made with folders, silver chargers, and transparent green plates and flatware. I also added the cutest bat food boxes, coffin “trick or treat” napkins, bat paper cups, and mini coffin favor boxes that I personalized with each guest’s name to serve as place cards.
Because I found way too many cute bat-themed trinkets when searching for products to style this party, I had to add even more favors to the table. Guests could choose from a variety of favors to fill their bat treat boxes, including Light-Up Halloween Bat Necklaces, Green Syringe Pens, Glitter Bat Earrings, Bat Temporary Tattoos, and Vampire Rubber Ducks.
