Spooky Scary Halloween Planning

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

I've been in full Halloween Party planning mode for our sons upcoming Halloween Party. Hence, the lack of blog posts! I've already shared our Spooky Scary Entryway we decorated to welcome his guests, now I'm thinking about the menu and Spooky Scary decor for our dining room & front of our house and games. I guess this post is a mish mash of ideas.

I've gathered a slew of Halloween pictures from various sources over the last few months. I love love this spooky dining room, and would love to create a similar look in ours. I think this a perfect layout for a Halloween Party, a lot of spooky with out being to creepy to 10 year olds. 

I love this vignette, perfect ideas of our buffet in our dining room. 

Even though the table below is dressed more for Thanksgiving, The various size glasses covering the table look amazing. I've been storing our empty clear wine bottles in hopes of suing some for Halloween decor. 

I really need to find a large cloche to cover up books and trap a nasty spider! Icky 

Moving our to the outdoors, this weekend we'll be buying lots of pumpkins for the front our house and for a few on the inside. I love all the spooky crows greeting guests as they enter of home. I've stalked up on Crows like crazy this year, thanks to Dollar Tree. They are selling the same exact crows as Michaels for only a buck! Can't beat that price. 

Now that Halloween is only a few weeks away, have your started decorating? Are you planning on throwing a party this year?



  1. We have a costume party at our home every year with our friends. I love finding awesome recipe ideas for Halloween. This is one of my favorite times of year!

  2. Your Party sounds like a lot of fun, we thinking of throwing an adult party next year!

  3. It sounds like your son's party is going to be fab! That's so great that you're going all out for it, can't wait to see the final decorations!

  4. I love looking at all the Halloween decor, I don't have little ones so I don't get into it like I use too.

  5. Wow lots of great ideas here! Can't wait to see pics from the party!


  6. You should have a lot of fun with this. You've already found some great inspiration.

    Do you have a covered glass cake stand that you could use instead of investing in a large cloche?

  7. You have some good inspiration pics here. I bet the party will be so fun!! I don't do much decorating for Halloween, except maybe some pumpkins. The one thing I will definitely NOT decorate with is spiders though! That gives me the creeps, even if they're fake :) I like the cloche idea.

  8. Karen, I don't have any glass cake stand domes :( Buy I'm going to try a thrift store this weekend, maybe a find one or a glass cheese dome, would work too

  9. I usually don't get too into Halloween decorating, but this year we've done a few cheap things.

    I fell in love with a PB photo and had to do some decorating...


  10. yeah....this was fun i know! i love the decor!


Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts! Best, Katrina
