Ghoulish decorating ideas for a perfect Halloween party

Deidre Wengen



We are inching closer and closer to Halloween and it's time to get down to planning the biggest and best bash on the block.
We've rounded up a few awesome decorating ideas to give your party a spooky, sophisticated edge that will have your guests screaming with delight.
Give a few of the following projects a try:
Glittered Pumpkin Centerpieces- This crafty project from Martha Stewart is a nice way to posh-up your Halloween party. Use faux pumpkins and paint them black for an elegant effect. Then, dip them in tacky glue and spoon black and silver glitter over them, alternating colors as you see fit. Make sure to coat the entire pumpkin and shake off excess glitter.  let the pumpkins dry for an hour and retouch if needed. Then stack them on a cake stand in the center of the table with black macabre candlesticks and faux spider webs for the perfect table setting.
Witch's Broom Place Cards - Dress up your place settings with these adorable name tags shaped like a witch's broom.  All you need for this project is a pile of raffia straw, some sticks from the backyard, a brown paper bag and glue. Grab all the instructions by clicking on the link and you'll have your guests spellbound in no time!
Black Ribbon Wreath - To glam up your entry way with a little bit of gothic flair, try crafting this wreath from CasaSugar. This simple project requires some black grosgrain ribbon and a wreath form. Then you simply cut the ribbon to equal lengths and tie it in knots around the form until the wreath is full. Then hang it on the door with a longer ribbon and you have a simple, chic way to welcome guests into the party.
Black Crepe Paper Flowers - To dress up your mantle or a coffee table, consider making these delicately dark crepe paper flowers and placing them in an elegant bowl. The project requires black crepe paper streamers, floral wire and floral tape. Instructions for the project can be found in the above link. These black floral pieces will give your Halloween bash an elegant, statement-making look.
