Fall is such a fun time of year. Apple picking, pumpkin picking, costume parties. If you get into the Halloween spirit like we do, then you might be thinking about hosting a fun Halloween party for either kids or adults. It doesn’t have to be over the top- maybe just some arts and crafts and a few Halloween themed snacks. For adults, if you don’t want to ask everyone to come dressed up- perhaps provide masquerade masks when they walk in the door. Either way, you don’t have to break the bank to score some awesome party goods for your upcoming spooky soiree. We’ve teamed up with Oriental Trading to share our top Halloween picks. We chose some great staples that you can keep year after year and will always be a hit.
DIY Decorative Pumpkin Set
These ceramic pumpkins look awesome as is- but are meant to be painted. The perfect craft for kids to create that can be displayed every year and not just a few weeks. We plan to leave them as is for our upcoming party since they go with the look we are going for- but the option to paint is always there! $15 a set. 3 pumpkins included.
Black Bottle Vases
Simple black bottles can be used as spooky vases with dead flowers inside or other fun display. We can’t wait to find the perfect place for these in our party. $10 for a set of 3.
Skeleton Hand Glasses
These champagne flute style glasses are perfect for guests at your party. Not too big, they keep everyone from wasting the precious witches potion you’re drinking, or perfect for children to hold. $20 for a dozen.
Spider Candle Holders
How awesome are these black spider candle holders? Perfect to display the whole season, and to use as centerpieces during your gathering. $15 for a set of 2.
With these key staples, you can throw Halloween events year after year. Pick up lots of spider web (Oriental has you covered on webbing also) and create different stations around the house using they key pieces- a food station, a bar, or a spooky mantle. We also recommend the Skeleton Hand Picks (pictured above, $5 for 72 pieces) that can be used as cupcake toppers or for other ghoulish treats you serve your guests. Head over to Oriental Trading to see all of our awesome picks for yourself.
Next, send out an invite and let your guests know about your upcoming event. Whether it’s BYOB, potluck, or just a fun costumed lunch, just have fun with it and enjoy the fall season!
