It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown Halloween Party

This year the Halloween classic,  "It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" celebrates it's 50th Anniversary!

There are few things in life that I love more than Snoopy, so when I realized this year is the 50th Anniversary of the television special "It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown" I knew I had to do something to celebrate!


I started out looking for fun Great Pumpkin themed party supplies and Oriental Trading had everything I needed! There are so many things to choose from, ranging from party supplies, craft projects, candy and more!

I was super excited to create some Great Pumpkin inspired treats too! Check out my Great Pumpkin Pudding Cups. Super easy to make using store bought pudding packs.

"Ack! Blech! DOG LIPS!" Lucy just cracks me up when she freaks out because Snoopy has the other half of her apple and their lips touch. No Halloween party is complete without bobbing for apples, so I put my spin on the game and got some delish cherry candied apples from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory! Aren't they beautiful?

Peanuts Gang Trick-or-Treaters! Love all of the ghost costumes, especially when Charlie Brown says he had "a little trouble with the scissors" and when Pig Pen was so surprised when everyone knew who he was under that dirty sheet!


These marshmallow pops are so easy to make! Click here for my step-by-step tutorial.

"I got a rock." I felt so bad for poor Charlie Brown, but I have great news!  I created these Rice Krispie Treat Rocks and they are delish! So simple to make using store-bought Rice Krispie Treats and candy melts.

"Never jump into a pile of leaves with a wet sucker." Linus learned the hard way, but these yummy little leaf lollipop cupcake toppers are such a sweet treat. Want to make your own?

I absolutely LOVE this Peanuts cupcake tower from Oriental Trading! Isn't it the cutest? Very sturdy, I'll use it year after year!

Super fun Great Pumpkin & Peanuts Halloween themed party supplies from Oriental Trading. The paper lanterns can be hung, but I attached them to candlesticks for a centerpiece.  I added dollar store battery candles inside and they looked great all lit up! 


Plates, napkins and a colorful Snoopy tablecloth all from Oriental Trading made everything so festive!

I loved how big the Peanuts gang cupcake toppers were and they're made of plastic so you can wash and re-use! The cute Peanuts Halloween cupcake wrappers came from Oriental Trading too!

I made this banner from orange and black crepe paper and a craft from Oriental Trading. Instead of using the Great Pumpkin craft as a Pop Up project, I just incorporated it into my banner instead! I loved how it turned out!

Another fun treat I've made is Linus' Great Graham Pumpkin Patch using graham crackers, frosting and Halloween candy.
