Wickedly Sweet Halloween

How to Host a Wickedly Sweet Halloween Party!

I can't believe its almost time for tricks and treats and tons of ghoulish and wicked sweets!  If you're in need of some wickedly sweet Halloween inspiration, then you've come to the right place!  This party have so many darling details to keep your little witches and goblins entertained for hours.... or at least till mom says the party's over!

As always, I started by designing the invitation and party printables.  I chose a  palette of black, white, mint and a variety of oranges.  The non-tradition Halloween color of mint added a bit of fun and whimsy to the overall design!

When all the little guests arrived, they were all exited to sit at the party table and enjoy a wickedly tasty lunch of ghoulish veggies, sand-witches, boo-berry punch and the yummiest selection of sweets and treats!

 The party table was created by first laying down a white tablecloth, topping it with a spooky spider web lace overlay and adding a whimsical black and white striped table runner down the middle.  The place settings were made up of a mint green plate topped with the most adorable ghost plate , a coral napkin tucked neatly in between and finished with bright orange silverware neatly wrapped with ribbon and the sweetest place card attached.

  The friendly ghost cups were spooktacular but the piece de resistance would have to be the cutest witch hat favor jars.  These were filled with a ghoulish concoction of mini marshmallows, candy corn and malt balls.  The kiddos loved them!  

Witch Hat Favor Jars


  •  Black cardstock
  •  ½” black ribbon
  • Orange tulle ribbon
  • Sparkly black spiders
  • Black and white Baker’s twine
  •  Candy  (I used a mix of candy corn, malt balls and mini marshmallows)

1.    Start by using the lid to trace a circle on the black cardstock. Cut out enough black cardstock circles to cover the tops of however many favors you need.

2.    Using your glue gun, cover the outer edge of the lid with the 1/2” ribbon, then cover the top of the lid with a cardstock circle. 

3.    Next, using your cardstock make a cone and attach it to the center of the lid. 

4.    Cut a length of orange tulle and wrap it around the hat.  Keep it in place with a couple dots of glue. 

5.    Finally, glue a fun spider on the hat.

6.    Fill the jars with your favorite candies or the medley that I used.

7.    Lastly, using the Baker’s Twine, attach the favor tag to the jar!

The centerpiece of the table was a simple DIY that doubles as lovely Halloween decor to enjoy for years.  I simply painted these DIY ceramic pumpkins in various shades of pearlized mints and orange paint  and added some black glitter to the stem.  That's it!  Add a few glitter spiders and black roses and your centerpiece is complete.

For some added fun and whimsy I clustered together tissue paper puffs and black and white striped lanterns and hung them above the party table. How fun!

For the dessert table, I used a cute white desk and placed a white geometric screen behind it and simply hung the "BOO" banner at an angle and added a couple black tissue puffs at each end.

The desserts I served were witches feet treats, ghoulish berries, witches brooms, and a darling pumpkin cake!
Once all the little party guests had their fill of sweets and treats it was time to play some games!

They all had a blast pumpkin bowling, which hat ring tossing and mummy wrapping each other!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you found loads of inspiration to use at your next Halloween Bash!!
