REAL PARTIES: Chic Halloween Dinner

REAL PARTIES: Chic Halloween Dinner

Kara from Kara’s Party Ideas hosted a “Chic Halloween Dinner” party last weekend that looks like so much fun! I’m especially loving the black & orange drip candles, shimmery accents, black crows, and wine glasses rimmed with orange sparkle gel.

I hosted my Chic Halloween Dinner last week, which had a ‘black damask’ theme along with the obvious color palette of orange and black. I also added accents of shimmer and chandeliers.

I found the perfect Elegant Black Damask printable party pack on Paper & Cake {place cards, napkin rings, cupcake toppers, etc}!

I topped the glasses with orange sparkle gel icing and added spider rings to the bottoms:

I love this black shimmery candelabra…

Drinks: I put orange Jones Soda in a black cauldron filled with ice and set Monster energy drinks out {in the “Khaos” flavor that matched the black and orange theme perfectly}. The crow on top was inspired by Hostess with the Mostess

The cute cupcake toppers were part of the Paper & Cake printables. I also made this chocolate pistachio ganache cake {recipe found in Celebrate magazine..it’s the cake that’s on the front cover}. It turned out really good & tasty!

I added masks to the little figures on the cookies…

And last but not least, the party favors were my homemade caramel apples and/or cute little boxes {paper & cake} filled with candy corn.”

Love it! Target had some skull-damask pattern items that would have worked also perfect with this theme!

Awesome ideas! I love theme parties and I made my table settings similar to yours, it was for kids so I just brightened it up a bit. Everyone said it was great!
