Black & White Halloween Soiree

I think it’s about time to start planning some Halloween parties! Right now I’m really digging the idea of a black and white soiree for adults. Something a little “spooky” but also a little sophisticated. Think wine and desserts.

Start the buzz by sending out an invitation from Tiny Prints, above. All of their halloween invitations are 10% off through September 28. Add some creepy labels to wine bottles, like the ones here from Midnite muse’s Etsy shop. Serve some cheese and crackers if you like but save room for the real treats…dessert!

Use black dishes and wine glasses, candles, decorative halloween ribbon, and spiders, combined with white spider webs, lace tablecloth, hanging gauze, and coffee mugs. These ideas above are from the October issue of Sandra Lee magazine. Don’t forget to have everyone dress in either black or white (or combination) costume!
Set up a buffet with black and white desserts to serve with coffee and flavored liquers.
This is a pretty simple party to pull together. Even if you find yourself busy with kids halloween activities, you could easily hold this on a Friday evening after work.
