This Halloween party was sent in by Jennifer from Pink Elephants and Lemonade. Jennifer says “We had just returned to The Netherlands and my daughter Julia was starting in a new school. She was apprehensive about meeting all of the new students and fitting in, and to be honest I was also worried about meeting all of the parents and making positive connections. I decided to invite all 25 classmates and siblings and parents to a Halloween party at our house.”
