This is gonna be something different - I want to host an online Zoom Halloween party and you are all invited!

So, if you'd like to participate, join this swap and get ready to have some fun!

The party will be on Thursday, October 29 from 8 - 10 pm, Eastern Time. I will send everyone in the swap an electronic invite email from Zoom as soon as partners are assigned.

You will be putting a special party package together for your partner so that we can have special treats and fun things to share. You must use a box to send this swap - no envelopes - I want to make sure everything arrives safely and there's something special to opening a package.

Decorate the heck out of the outside and inside of the box - stickers, papers, washi on the outside and inside! use confetti, tissue, shreadded paper. Lay your card on top so its the first thing your partner sees.

Inside the box should be:

  • A handmade or store bought Halloween card with your name, swap name and three Halloween themed jokes WITHOUT the punchlines (you will give these on a note in the bottom of the box)

  • 3 sweet treats for your partner - these can be chocolate bars, small bags of candies, store bought wrapped cookies. These should be full size (the kind you get at the drug store check out counter or the movie theatre box candies) NOT small trick or treat size. PLEASE LIST BELOW ANY CANDY PREFERENCES, LIKES, DISLIKES, ALLERGIES

  • One brand new Halloween crafting item - a package of stickers, a roll of washi tape, a set of embellishments, All items must be brand new, still in store packaging

  • One small plush item - should be at least 4" tall, Any cute furry fuzzy stuffed animal that is Halloween themed.

  • One senders choice handmade item - this can be a blank notecard, an ATC, an ornament, handmade jewelry - anything made by you

  • On the very bottom of the box, place an envelope containing the answers to the jokes written inside. We will be telling each other these jokes at the party!

Please let your partner know in a message that you have received your package when it arrives but DO NOT OPEN until the night of the 29th

The idea is that we will open our packages on the night of the party - like a reveal event. We will take turns opening them and seeing what our partners have sent. How fun, right!

It is not mandatory that you attend the online party. You cannot rate down your partner if they are unable or choose not to attend. You do not have to RSVP, I will be there anyway with whoever does decide to show.

Please, please please wear a costume of some kind, even if it is just a mask or head gear. I will be giving away an award treat to the best costume (we will all vote) that I will then mail out to that person.

If you have any questions, party ideas or feedback, please feel free to message me or leave your comment here

I really look forward to connecting with some of you. You also do not have to stay the entire time of the party, you can also bring your kids, husband, pets to the party too!

I like this idea! I am watching it for a now but leaning towards joining. I plan to even dress up in a Halloween costume during the zoom conference! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ. Iโ€™m getting excited again about Halloween! Due to Covid, I am not giving out candy this year nor decorating the outside of my house, as I donโ€™t want folks to ring my doorbell thinking that Iโ€™m giving out candy. ๐Ÿ™

CANNEKCUL 09/10/2020 #

I like hot tamales, dots, hard sugarless candy, lifesavers, mentos, Oreo cookies, snickers, almond joy, mounds.

Rabbitfreedom 09/10/2020 #

Oh, I do hope you'll join! I love m&ms, resees mike & ike, black licorice, good and plenty, and anything gummie, Nothing sour please

Eulegirl 09/10/2020 #

This is such a cool idea!! I'm putting it on watch now, but I am going to join later. I love chocolate, caramel, coffee, mint flavors, and Tootsie rolls!

CANNEKCUL 09/11/2020 #

Does the plush item have to be an animal!

CANNEKCUL 09/12/2020 #

Scratch that last question. I went back and more carefully read the requirements. ๐Ÿ™‚

dartha 09/12/2020 #

I love jelly beans, butterfingers and babyruth bars.

Disneydezi 09/14/2020 #

While I adore black chocolate the weather has been kinda crazy so it might melt? I also love black licorice/anise flavored things, watermelon/cheer hard candies or suckers and caramel anything. I adore bats, black cats, and rats! So excited to do some virtual partying!

Christopherpines 09/15/2020 #

This is such great idea! I love milk chocolate, caramel, black licorice, runts, and other yummy treats...I really don't like gummies though they weird me out! I love all creepy halloween and not really cutsie stuff...and if you don't give me a plushie, I won't rate you down, I am not a fan :o)

Rabbitfreedom 09/17/2020 #

@Christopherpines perhaps you could make a request here for something else instead of the plush? Maybe a creepy figurine or some kind of skull or skeleton thing?

MiRdLHWY43 09/19/2020 #

I love this idea. On my watch list for now and will likely join later. The only candies I don't care for is sour, black licorice, and coconut. Candy corn? Yes!๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ˜ˆ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘€๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽƒ

SusanSpooky 09/20/2020 #

I love the idea of this swap! I like milk and dark chocolates, milano type cookies, peanut butter anything, s'mores. I love any fun Halloween themed treats, even the "savory" kinds (popcorn, pretzles, chips, etc) if you want to switch it up for me. My husband loves Crunch bars if you want to send him something!

krspellman 09/22/2020 #

Sounds like fun, great idea! ๐ŸŽƒ candies I like include: gummies, caramels, dark chocolate, mentos, dots, hot tamales, and 100 Grand Bars ๐Ÿ‘ป Happy Halloween everybody!! ๐ŸงŸโ€โ™€๏ธ

Frickenjazzed 09/24/2020 #

Rather excited for this! I'm a savory kind of person when it comes to candies so Reese's, Butterfinger (full size is cool. but I prefer the bite size (or if you can somehow find the discontinued BB's you'll be my bff)), Snickers. I LOVE me some candy corn but ONLY if its the official Brach's brand, other stuff tends to be made out of crayons. No go for candy is black licorice, cinnamon anything, or anything with wafers, like Kit Kats.

kromo 09/24/2020 #

I think this will be a ton of fun!๐Ÿ˜ Sadly I can no longer eat gummies, lollipops, or hard candy for medical reasons. I โค๏ธ LOVE โค๏ธ Butterfingers, Reeseโ€™s regular and big cups, Fastbreak, and Kit Kats. I also love those cherry or peanut butter Bing things. ๐Ÿ™‚ I also like Peppermint patties. I definitely am a cutesy Halloween type person or steampunk is an option as that is my alter ego but no creepy scary please.

ittybittykitty 09/25/2020 #

I love this and Iโ€™m actually the most excited about the party! Thanks @Rabbitfreedom for putting this together.

For candy - I donโ€™t have any food allergies. I especially LOVE Reeseโ€™s peanut butter cups, but also m&ms, Reeseโ€™s pieces, snickers, any mint flavors, cinnamon stuff, sour stuff, or dark chocolate -the darker the better! I also love gummies, Runts, Gobstoppers, those flavored Tootsie Rolls (the pastel colored ones). Lol thanks a long list!

Iโ€™m not a big fan of black licorice, coconut, or cherry flavors, or Butterfingers. But I can always pass those along to family, so itโ€™s all good.

I love Halloween, and especially anything retro, kitschy/campy, or kawaii. I donโ€™t mind scary or gory stuff, but if possible could you please limit any of that to smaller items so my little one doesnโ€™t see it and freak. :)

AmericanHeiress 09/25/2020 #

Hi, I can't wait to get my swap partner!!! Anyways who ever is sending to me.....Please DO NOT SEND CHOCOLATE. I live in FL where its hot as hell and it will melt and be huge mess. You can include sour candies, gummies, tootsie pops for my kids. Bonus Points if you include Necco Wafers for me. LOL Love the Zoom Idea. Happy Halloween Everyone.

tonat80 09/26/2020 #

For me I really don't have any candy preferences in particular. Just don't send chocolate. Here in Arizona it will melt for sure. Don't hesitate to send me candies that originate from other countries or are special to your area (for example, here in Arizona prickly pear or cactus are big). I will be happy with whatever you decide to send...I love surprises!

SilverD 09/26/2020 #

Hello, this is going to be a lot of fun!!! I went through peoples' likes and dis-likes and found some I don't care for: hot candy like redhots, sour candy, almond joys, mounds, or Tootsie Rolls. Other than those I'm pretty open to what ever treats you want to send!

morgainegeiser 09/30/2020 #

For me - I like chocolate with caramel, gummies of any kind, small bags of nuts or pretzels. I also like flavored hot chocolate packets.

Rabbitfreedom 10/ 9/2020 #

If anyone comes here to check on an update, I just scheduled the Zoom meeting for the party and I will be sending everyone an email - I will also try to send the evite through swapbot messages! So excited to see you all!

SilverD 10/11/2020 #

FYI the 12th is a USPS holiday so I'll be sending the 13th.

Rabbitfreedom 10/12/2020 #

Hi everyone! I've changed the date for the send by - sorry for the mistake, I had forgotten it was a federal holiday! It is now due to be sent by the 14th!
