If you are looking for ideas for Halloween party food and decorations, Candace Miller of Lilly Paul Designs has some great ones. You will find some wonderful inspiration for hanging decorations, delicious treats that are almost too cute to eat, as well as wall and table decor.
Halloween Hanging Decorations: Candace has labeled her fun, family oriented party “Spooktacular” and has hung a colorful banner over her dessert table. (The banner shows up nicely and adds Halloween color against a black backdrop.) She also has hung paper lanterns decorated like ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, and Frankenstein monsters. Although she bought the lanterns with faces already on them, it is easy to create your own using a black permanent marker. Also, by attaching trails of white streamers to the ghost lanterns, she has created the effect of flying ghouls.
Treats: A colorful dessert table provides options for guests of all ages. (The colors chosen for this party include green, black, purple, and orange, the perfect combination for Halloween.) Cupcakes with colorful wraps are placed on individual stands, and other treats are placed on clearly labeled plates. These include green pudding topped with chocolate, complete with a googly eyed monster face on the cup, as well as “Boo Sticks,” a combination of Reese’s peanut butter cups and pretzel sticks. These Boo Sticks makes for perfect witches broomsticks. Candace has also filled green plastic vases with candy corn, sticking holiday lollipops inside.
Table Decorations: In addition to the food items, Candace has created a kid friendly table, full of sparkly purple and black spiders and friendly ghosts. These ghosts are simply made of white napkins and a solid ball, which can be found at your local craft store. She has tied a ribbon around each one and drawn a silly ghost face to complete the look. These ghosts then adorn orange sparkly trees or rest on the table for guests to enjoy.
With all of these ideas, you can now create a unique and memorable Halloween celebration and you don’t have to break the bank to do so. Be sure to check out Lilly Paul designs using the link above to get details about how she pulled this fun party together as well as some of her partners in execution. (A little gallows Halloween humor.) Seriously, Candace connected with some great sources. She even found some free printables and products used for decorations from her local Dollar Store.
