Halloween Party 2013

Its Halloween Week!! If you missed how much I love this holiday… check it out here, here and here. We hosted our annual Halloween party this last weekend and I thought I’d show you guys some of our decor! The center of any party is food, so I typically set up one table with food and then have a few places that I set food around the house (like candy corn in bowls near the couches). This year I was inspired by black and white Halloween decor, so I decided to stick with that as a theme.


It mostly started with finding the black and white fabric at Joann’s for 60% off and went from there.  I added the burlap to break up the black and white a bit, and then just added all the black and white Halloween related things I could find!


Some quick cutting of Chalkboard Vinyl and I had labels for my glass jars, a few glittery pumpkins, spiders and a spray painted skull rounded out some of the decor.



I saw both of these cupcakes flying around the blog-o-sphere and thought they would be a great addition to the tablescape.  They were super easy to make and look so cute!


I tried to stick with a mostly black and white theme for food as well.  The spread was white cheddar popcorn, chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, chips and salsa (not white, but a crowdpleaser non-the-less), wheat thins and a cream cheese ball, a veggie tray, and some cookies to finish it off.  These are my favorite sugar cookies (recipe here).  They are so versatile, I like making them for a lot of parties… not to mention they are DELICIOUS. I’m still mastering my royal icing skills.



For drinks we had lemonade and sangria (and beer and sodas):



And for fun we added a spot for people to take their own ‘photo booth pictures’… just a little fabric on the wall along with some super cute vintage halloween decor that my grandmother had in her basement… How cute are those cats?!



My husband and I dressed up as a Tootsie Roll Pop… our last name is Popst so we added a fun twist on the word for his costume… and I was the owl (remember the how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop commercial??) and made my costume out of felt.  I’ll add a tutorial later this week for my costume!

I hope you guys all have a great week and enjoy your own Halloween celebrations!
