5. Involve your own kids in the decorating.
"I have two young boys and I include them in on the decorating with everything, whether it’s a cute little garland on the dessert table, or a sign for the door to welcome the guests. I would encourage moms to include their kids every step of the way. Let them help with the design – maybe not own it, but help with it! Whether it’s the invitations or the doorway, lining up cute little pumpkins as the guests arrive, or helping with creating goody bags."
