Halloween has to be one of my favourite holidays of the year.  Whether it be a girl’s night in or a spooky Halloween party, there is certainly something for everyone to get in the spirit of Halloween!  Is anyone getting their ghouls together for a little soiree?  Vanessa and I had so much fun planning a party with some friends last week, we wanted to share some essential Halloween party tips!


You can never have enough sweet treats at any party, but make them extra festive for Halloween! I like to indulge in classic candies like gummy pumpkins and candy corn in fun self-serve dishes.


Spiked vodka punch is always a crowd pleaser. To make your beverage of choice stand out, customize your glassware with themed phrases to give your guests a little giggle! Here, we simply applied stickers to goblets from the dollar store for a cost effective way to enhance your table scape!

Dress Up

Every event has a dress code and our party was no exception.  Keep some easy dress up items on hand for guests who didn’t have time to prepare in advance.  Boas and hair pieces go a long way!

Have Fun

Whether you are going out or staying in, it’s always a blast to have an activity really get your guests in the spirit!  Pumpkin decorating is fun and easy.  Here, we painted our mini pumpkins, gourds and skulls fun and bright colours but you could use stickers, googly eyes or just about anything else!  Don’t forget to watch your favorite Halloween movie together while you decorate.  Ours was Hocus Pocus – what’s yours?

Happy Halloween and remember to eat, drink and be scary!
