{Real Party} Halloween Party & Dessert IDEAS

It's ONE MORE WEEK until Halloween . . are YOU ready?

I wanted to share some ideas on how to have a fabulous Halloween get-together with some friends and (of course) I used the GLAM Halloween "Shock-tail" collection from my shop.

 There's still time to send out an invite - just pay, print, write in the info & send this week!
And I made it even easier for you by putting them at 50% OFF until friday.
You can get them here

Next is planning the decor & some simple things you can do to dress up the party. Grab your daughter's feather boa & wrap in around your light. Hang some pom bunting in the center for a fun look.
Add a fun holiday runner to your dessert table. I got this one at Pier 1 last year but I think they still have them.

(L) -A few spiders that are fun add interest to your table. I also made a tissue pom bouquet. (R) - Some colored hanging tissue poms ALWAYS look good. I added a paper lantern too.

I made this FREE Chevron Halloween Subway Art that you can download for FREE here, put it in a frame & add some glitter pumpkins (found in the dollar bin at Target) to add an inexpensive display.

One of my favorite things to make for Halloween & that's inexpensive & looks good, is to get some mini pumpkins, spray adhesive on them & apply glitter. I went a step further here, & added a feather up near the stem along with a mini glitter spider.

Next up TREATS! Every party has to have some sort of candy bar - especially at a Halloween party! Keep it simple by throwing some fun colored web on a table & place some fun containers with some fav candy in for your guests to 'trick or treat' in! 

And the FOOD!!! . . . (I realllly mean the DESSERT TABLE!=) . . .

make some cookies & cupcakes or buy them, throw some veggies & dip on the table, dip some marshmallows, poke a stick in it & throw some sprinkles on them - it doesn't have to be elaborate or expensive. =)

What IS your favorite Halloween snack? Mine is taking peanuts & mixing them with candy corn - tastes JUST like a PayDay candy bar is you have never tried it. I just tried it for the FIRST time last year & let's just say I ummm . . .am ADDICTED!!!

And what's an adult party without some festive FUN drink ideas!?
 If you have been inspired & you like this collection, I have it on SALE until Friday where you can get the whole collection for only $10 which includes the invite as well. It comes with the invite, toppers, banner, drink flags, napkin wraps, glass/wine labels, food/candy bar labels. Just click here to purchase.

I hope you all have fantastic parties this Halloween week & you have found at least one idea to take away from this & incorporate into your own!
