Halloween is RIGHT around the corner. If you're having a party but are short on time (like I am) because (gulp) you haven't finished your kid’s costumes yet, here are a few punched paper party details that take no time at all.

I used some of my favorite Martha Stewart Craft punches (all available at Michaels). The big vintagey-looking embossed jack-o'-lantern is one of my favorites. The cute striped paper straws I used are from Kikkerland. You can find them here or here. The favor cups are made from nut cups, which you can get at party stores and some supermarkets.

Have a festive and fun Halloween!!
