Halloween doesn’t need to about uninspired decorations or ideas, it can be a frighteningly amazing good time! Yes, you deserve this deliciously wicked celebration. We insist you do!

Check out our quick and budget-friendly ways to get one step closer to that sinfully fun and sexy All Hallow’s Eve celebration, after the cut!

The Invite:

Personalized invites never get old. Fill up mason jars (available at your neighborhood hardware store) with details of your frighteningly amazing party, with a little help from Shakespeare, as seen in the picture above!

Set The Mood:

Instead of the classic combo of orange and black, go for a black and cream palette that will instantly bring ‘witch-tastic’ and chic vibe to the party area! Keep it hassle-free with bare walls, and light a few candles.

In fact, spare your guests the embarrassment (and money!) of turning up with potentially tacky costumes. As last season’s American Horror Story: Coven HWIC (Head Witch in Charge) Fiona will probably tell you, black is the only sexy-cool. It’s budget-friendly too!

Top this off with rearrangements of classic songs on repeat, such as The Neptunes’ fresh take of The Rolling Stones’ ‘Sympathy of the Devil’ and we guarantee your guests will want to be up to no good!

Food and Drinks:

The food you serve doesn’t have to look bloody for guests to sink their teeth into! Serve fried chicken wings with black beans as part of your ghoulish feast. These crispy, twice-fried chicken wings glazed with black bean sauce can look like bat wings!

The star of the show here, is dessert! Get fun with cupcakes, with frightfully fun frosting and designs to tempt your guests. You can also make a treat corner with sugar cookies, ghost cake pops and lots of dark chocolate so that guests can indulge their sweet tooth!

Don’t forget about the drinks! Check out The MonsterGrrrls Halloween Party Brews and Not Martha’s Halloween Cocktail Experiments for hair-raising Halloween drink recipes

You’re Never Too Old to Paint Your Face:

Besides sampling the fabulously creepy menu and handing out sweets at the front door, get guests to transform themselves with a little face paint if they’re without costume, but none of that elementary stuff.
