Halloween is a month away! Not ready? That’s ok, because I’m sharing how easy it is to plan a Spooky Soirée for Halloween Night!
How to Plan a Spooky Soirée
Tired of the the kids having all the fun on Halloween Night? How about gathering your family and friends for a party while the kids are Trick or Treating? Adults can take turns chaperoning the kids and passing out candy while the other guests snack on goodies and enjoy the Spooky Soirée!
Stock Up On Candy
To plan an awesome Halloween party, the first thing you need to do is stock up on Hershey’s candy. After all, every good host/hostess knows that you can’t have a Halloween party without a large cauldron of candy! Plus you need plenty for all the little trick-or-treaters!
Head on over to Walmart and grab a few big bags of your favorite Hershey’s candy variety.
You can find the large Hershey’s displays near the seasonal aisles.
While you’re there, be sure to grab some awesome Halloween decor at a great price! My boys love the “Spooky Phone” I picked up. It’s provided hours of entertainment so far!
The Hershey’s BIG bags are perfect for large events like parties, trunk or treat events and trick or treating etc. Choose from your favorite varieties, all of which are sure to please the most discriminating ghouls and ghosts! Walmart also has an exclusive Halloween “Boo” orange Reese’s bag!
Easy DIY Backdrop
Now for the decorations. Create a heart stopping backdrop easily with wooden frames, vinyl, a little bit of paint and a few half pumpkins. All of which you can get at your local craft store. Drape some spooky cloths (available at WalMart) on the wall and hang your painted frames and half pumpkins from temporary hooks.
I used my Sizzix Big Shot to make the vinyl decals, but you can paint your pumpkins. How cute would black stripes or glitter be on these framed pumpkins?
Bring out your spookiest decor including faux candles! WalMart carries a great variety of Halloween decor including LED Candelabras!
Of course, every Soirée needs lots of crows and skulls!
Place some pumpkins and Skulls in a decorative birdcage to take the creepy decor up a notch!
Fill more canisters with Hershey’s Candy for your guests.
Lanterns add to the ambiance. Instead of real candles, use mini LED pumpkin lights (available at Walmart) to keep everyone safe!
Add a spooky tree and some ravens and you have the perfect indoor spooky forest!
Every good party has party favors. Set out some coordinating favor boxes filled with Hershey’s Candy. When the party is over, send your guests off in style. Everyone loves parting gifts!
In addition to the Hershey’s candy you picked up at WalMart, whip up some more sweets such as rose cupcakes and cereal treats. Add a few skeletons and bones for toppers to add to the eerie effect.
Don’t forget the awesome Hershey’s candy!
Add a little bit of “barbed wire” (available at WalMart) on your table as a simple garland!
Easy DIY Spooky Goblets – Tutorial
Looking for a simple way to embellish plain goblets? Add some spooky washi tape to the stems!
What you will need:
- Black Plastic Goblets
- Washi Tape
- Scissors (optional)
Starting with the top of the goblet stem, wrap the washi tape around the stem while working your way down to the base.
Once at the base of the goblet, continue to wrap the washi tape in a circular motion to cover the base. You will need to overlap the tape to cover the base entirely.
And there you have it! Easy embellished reusable goblets! The best part is the tape is removable for washing and you can also change them up next year (or even for another holiday)!
And that’s it! A complete party plan for you to create your own Spooky Soirée!
There is still plenty of time to plan your own shindig, start taking out your Halloween decorations now and don’t forget to stock up on Hershey’s BIG bags!
