Halloween Party Tips

These are the best Halloween party tips for a super stylish event:

  • Pull together a cohesive look by selecting three main colors.
  • Stick to one Halloween theme: happy, spooky or scary.
  • Select a few easy Halloween recipes, like guacamole. Once your guests arrive you don’t want to be stuck in the kitchen prepping and cooking elaborate appetizers and dishes.
  • Start shopping early (August and September) for great deals on Halloween decor and supplies.
  • Compare pricing from party stores and online retailers. Many brick-and-mortar stores stay competitive by price matching.
  • When setting up food tables, incorporate various heights and levels. Use small crates, spooky books and cake stands. This is an easy way to give your Halloween appetizers a stunning visual effect.

For this Halloween party display we’re playing up spiders, spooky eyes, and skulls. The focal point of this Halloween appetizer table are the guacamole Halloween appetizers.

As seen in the images on this page, our appetizer table features a number of creepy items around the guacamole witch. They’re all traditional findings from a dank and dusty witch’s coven.

Some of these Halloween props were found at Walmart, party stores, specialty Halloween shops, and online retailers. Much of this decor can be used year after year.
