If you have time, we recommend looking for good deals on cake stands (which can be used over & over) at stores such as HomeGoods, Pier 1 Imports, Cost Plus World Market, and Target.

Favors & Treats

Here are some recommended party favors and treats to lay out on the dessert table or next to each guest’s place setting. Feel free to find any Halloween-themed favors that coordinate with the black & white, purple, and silver color scheme.

Tablescape

Prep

Prepare perfect party decor.

DIY Marbled Pumpkins

Materials

  • White mini pumpkins
  • Nail polish in black and purple
  • Small shallow disposable dish or tray
  • Toothpicks
  • Wax Paper
  • Water

Directions

  1. Fill a small shallow disposable dish with about 1-2” water.
  2. Open first color of nail polish and drizzle on top of water, and then repeat with additional colors, swirling around as you go.
  3. Using your toothpick, swirl the colors a bit to mix them around in a marbled pattern in the water.
  4. Slowly dip your pumpkin into the water, turning as needed to coat the sides.
  5. Set marbled pumpkins on wax paper to dry at least 15 minutes.

DIY Splatter Paint B-O-O Balloons

Materials

  • Silver mylar letter balloons (B-O-O)
  • Purple or lilac spray paint
  • Black & white acrylic paints
  • Paint brushes

Directions

  1. Inflate the silver letter balloons using straws provided within the packaging.
  2. Spray paint each letter ballon with purple spray paint, turning a bit to coat the sides. Set aside to dry at least one hour.
  3. Dip your brush into the first color of acrylic paint, and then flick the paint over the balloons at random. Repeat with additional colors. Set aside to dry for one hour.

***We also did a simpler version of these balloons where we just did the paint splatter on the silver balloons, skipping the step of spray painting them purple.

Styling tips

Made of Sugar & Spice shares its top tips for pulling off this event.

Tip 1

If you can’t find picture frames in your themes colors, simply spray paint them instead!

Tip 2

For a more cohesive look, spray paint other décor items the same color as your picture frames.

Tip 3

Mix and match candy and non-candy trinkets for guests to trick-or-treat to avoid too much of a sugar coma!

Tip 4

Add wiggle eyes to your jars and other serving items for a fun and ghoulish touch.

 

Tip 5

To save time, decorate a plain white store-bought cake with a bit of extra frosting in a color to match your theme, add sprinkles, and a cute cake topper.
