Our Spooky Ideas:

Make a Statement with the Invitations

Make a Statement with the Invitations

This might be Halloween, but you don’t want your party to feel dead. Develop your guest list and create an eye-popping invitation that stands out in the crowd. This clever Ouija Board Invitations is a winner in our spell book.

Create a Scary Spread

Create a Scary Spread

Your snack game is not something to slack on. Take inspiration from everyone’s favorite wizarding world with a fun treat like Olivander’s pretzel wands or Harry Potter’s golden snitches. If you’re a fan of monsters that err on the side of cute rather than caution, these rice cereal monsters are so adorable we could scream.

Craft Spooky Sips

You can’t host a Halloween party without the proper potions. Get your cauldron and your cocktail mixer ready to wow your friends. This spooky libation features blueberries, rum, Grand Marnier and lychees—we mean eyeballs! Get the recipe here.

Hire Entertainment

Predicting you’ll have the best party of the season? Hire a tarot card reader or astrologer to add a fun activity to your Halloween night. An evening of libations and revelations sounds like the perfect plan.

You think we’re not up for party games? Witch, please. We love a great activity to get the party going. Ask your guests to bring a pumpkin to your gathering and go all out with a pumpkin carving contest. It’s kid and adult friendly! If you want to keep your party mess-free, setup colorful markers and embellishments that will help your guests stay clean.
