Halloween can be such a busy time for Mamas – between making (or purchasing!) the kids costumes, helping at classroom parties, and getting the candy prepared for trick-or-treaters – most ladies don’t have a second to enjoy the festive holiday! I thought it would be fun to gather up some of my favorite “witches” for a little good old-fashioned Halloween dinner party this past weekend.
I invited them with our Witch silhouette party invitation, featuring an orange and white geometric trellis pattern. I used this pattern, along with my witch silhouette, throughout the event to tie together the look.
I welcomed my guests with a tray of my signature cocktail: a candy cane cocktail! So simple and delicious, I filled up my glasses with Mike’s Hard Lemonade, and then added a dash of orange juice, and a handful of candy corn. It was just the perfect amount of sweet and sour!
I set a festive table with a black and white stripe tablecloth, white dishes, and napkins made out of my custom fabric in the orange geometric print. Each plate was topped with a menu card, and a mini orange witch’s broom. And instead of using traditional placecards, I opted to do a straw flag with each guests’ name on them.
I wanted the center of the table to feature a modern spin on traditional pumpkins. So I embellished a large white pumpkin with black stones to look like a glam monogram. I found this letter “L” at my local Michael’s craft store, and they had them available in all letters! It was so easy, and I just love the custom look it gave the table. Plus, it can be used as decor after the party.
I served up sugar cookies from Sweet Nelsons for dessert. How amazing are these cookies?! She absolutely nailed the design, repeating the graphics from our invitation.
To send my ladies home with a little something sweet, I packaged up candy corn in our foil-stamped cello bags with a “Trick or Treat” message on them. They were conveniently displayed on our lucite tray (featuring the diagonal stripe liner in orange) by the front door, so I could easily hand them out as we said our goodbyes.
