Hi friends, Halloween is coming right up in a little under two weeks. If you’re still procrastinating about throwing that Halloween party but not sure how to make it stylish, don’t fret! I partnered with Fanta & OREO to share some stylish Halloween decor and entertaining tips that you can easily put it to work.

On my last post, I shared 5 ‘gothic chic’ ideas that can you can incorporate to create the mood. Today, I’m going to share 4 more ideas, AND may I remind you that today is the last day to enter the #SpookySnackLabContest Pinterest Giveaway worth $550! If you have not entered, be sure to check out the details here!

Alright, 4 more ideas coming right up!

1. Use decorative glassware. For serving drinks, go for glasswares that are more decorative or have a vintage feel. I love my black stem glasses and the vintage inspired tumblers to serve my Fanta soda! It instantly elevates the look. And since we’re adding orange mostly through food and beverages, make sure to pick a drink like Fanta Orange to get the best Halloween color for the party.



2. Don’t forget the salty snacks. With so much candy and sweets going around, it’s nice to offer some salty snacks to counter the tastebuds. One of my favorite crowd-pleaser snacks is serving crackers like Wheat Thins with dips.


3. Go for the white (or light grey) pumpkins. It’s easy to overdo the orange during the Halloween season. So for the color scheme, I try to stay with black, white, and gold and use orange sparingly through food and drinks. For the pumpkins, opt for white or light grey to accomplish the chic look.

4. Have masks handy for guests. For guests who are not into costumes, have a tray of masks ready so that they don’t feel left out in the crowd. Serves as a party favor too! I picked these up at Party City for $1-$6.


Bonus tips: Add in other decor elements to create a more dramatic look like willow branches (can easily picked up at grocery markets or any flower shop), faux spider webs, black feathers like these whisper placemats, and stone accent decor like these slate stone coasters. All will tie in the ‘gothic chic’ theme without sacrificing on style!


I hope you’ve all enjoyed my Halloween decor and entertaining tips and that you’ve found it helpful! Don’t forget to enter the #SpookySnackLabContest Pinterest Giveaway, not to be missed!! Have the most amazing, fun and stylish Halloween, everyone!
