So I threw a Halloween party this year – ‘Costumes + Cocktails’ to be exact.
While I love a good Costume party, I’m honestly not the biggest halloween-decor fan. Mostly because I think anything/ everything Halloween-decor related is tacky, so I just made sure to incorporate elements of orange/ tan throughout. But let’s be honest – I am just a fan of ANY party, as long as I get to decorate
Because it was a Halloween party, it only made sense to make a dessert/ cake table. Everything on this table literally cost no more than $40. Sweet deal considering I ALWAYS do Charcuterie/ food settings. I just picked up a small pumpkin pie, some candy, chips, pumpkin pie cookies, pretzels, chocolate, some oreos, some milano cookies, and cupcakes. I love the clean look of table settings, so I always strive for that – regardless of the food options.
I decided I wanted a Champagne bar for the ladies, which included 3 different types of Champagnes – a Prosecco, a Rose, and a Dry. I wanted to make it fun and interactive, so I had 4 different types of fruit add-ins, in addition to a side of Cherries + Olives. Everyone LOVED the bar and I easily wrote out 3 Champagne drink mixes on Chalkboard Contact paper (so easy!). I have always been a fan of using stemmed glassware vs. anything plastic, so I *may have picked up more glasses than necessary.
For the guys, we did a Scotch + Cigar bar. I thought it would be fun to write out the 4 different types, along with the yrs, aromas, etc. This was incredibly helpful, esp. for those who are new to Scotches. And while most of the guys weren’t huge Scotch/ Whiskey fans, they did enjoy the Cigars. Matt is a pretty big Scotch fan so he enjoyed himself, even if no one else did haha. Doesn’t matter to me – it was pretty all the same.
PS – can you guess what I was??
