All Hallow’s Eve is just a couple of weeks away! Hopefully you’ve already got a jump start on crafting your costume so it will be just perfect for the big night. If you’re hosting friends and family for a spooky soirée, then you’ve come to the right place. I’ve rounded up 8 haunting Halloween party ideas to help you prepare.
Let’s get started!
1. The Invitation
The first step in hosting any party is the invitation. Set the theme for your party with handmade invites crafted with scrapbook paper, embellishments & twine.
2. Door Décor
Decorating your front door is a great way to set the mood for your party before guests even step foot inside your home! Go silly with monster faces or spooky with spiders and skulls.
3. Spooky Decorations
Incorporate your theme throughout your home with more Halloween decorations. The entryway table and mantle are good focal points to decorate. I’m really loving marquee letters right now, so this BOO is on point. And don’t forget the cobwebs!
4. Party Pumpkins
A Halloween without pumpkins just isn’t right. So be sure to stock up! From decorations to candy containers, these pumpkins are a must.
5. Setting the Table
Whether you’re throwing a sit down dinner for adults or a casual costume party… there are so many ways to decorate your table.
Ever notice how guests tend to swarm around the snack table? These fun goblets, paper napkins and silly straws add a little hocus-pocus to your party.
6. Witches Brew
Keep beverages bubbling with this Halloween Glass Serving Set. Recollections™ Bottle Labels make it easy!
7. Terrifying Treats
Treats are my favorite part of any party. These Brownie Skulls are eerily elegant, while the Monster Eyeball Cookies are gruesome enough for any occasion.
8. Frightening Favors
It’s always nice to send your guests off with a nice little gift or favor. Use apothecary jars to set up a creepy candy bar and let guests fill treat bags or boxes!
If you’re party is a bit more elegant, then I think these Coffin Favor Boxes will fit right in. The plain wood coffin boxes would also make a fun painting craft for a kids party too!
