Throw a Spooktacular Creepy but Chic Halloween Party
Eerie Invites. Make a spooky but chic first impression with a Halloween inspired party invitation. Whether you choose traditional, or paperless, a classy card will set the mood for your elegant fright night affair. We’re gaga for the glitzy ghoulish designs at Paperless Post.
Glamorous Gourds. Avoid the muss and fuss of carving Halloween’s favourite squash with a little paint, shimmer and shine. Create your own masterpiece using ribbons, rhinestones and metallic spray, or pop by Michaels for ready made designs. Be sure to pick out pumpkins of all shapes and sizes for an eye-pleasing display that will work beautifully both indoors and outside.
Sweet Centerpieces. Create simple centerpieces by pouring your favourite Halloween treats into vases of varying sizes. Add some wax candles or LED votives and tie with ribbon for an elegant focal point on your dining or buffet table.
Black & White Night. An entryway display using only black and white – with a touch of orange and silver – will make a dramatic splash. Lil’ Luna’s design is picture perfect, and the mamma turned blogger offers step-by-step instructions on her site.
Potion & Punches. A creepy concoction – or two – is sure to get the party started. Whether you go with Saveur’s tiki style Zombie cocktail, or Real Simple’s Vampire Punch, guests will go absolutely batty for a these simple Halloween stir sticks.
