How to Throw a Totally-Not-Tacky Halloween Party
Elegant Halloween decor does exist (!) and we highly endorse it.
If you're hosting a costume party this Halloween, might we suggest a new approach? An elegant Halloween dinner party. Halloween decor has moved from tacky to trendy in recent years — likely thanks to Instagram. And with so many fun recipes to make and gorgeous dinnerware to serve them in, this holiday is the perfect excuse to host an over-the-top meal with pretty decor to match. We found lots of beautiful decorations, dinnerware and serving solutions that are spooky-chic.
We love an appetizer table at a party and this is perfect sign to go with it. "Accompany the food with clever signage ... and it will be a sure-fire hit with your guests," says Marcy Blum, celebrity event planner and HomeGoods style expert. This one is cute and punny, which we love.
"Revamp a bookshelf into a wall of Halloween goodies that guests can 'trick-or-treat' from," says Marcy. "Mixed among classic candies, throw in a few surprises like mini pumpkin-spiced candles ... so friends and family can take home a little extra something for Halloween." Stock up on a few of these jars for a jaw-dropping candy moment.
