A Boo-tiful Party

With October 31st around the corner, it is time to start planning your halloween party.  It does not have to be all ghouls, goblins, and scary bits. Halloween, which is my most favourite time of year by the way, can be classy and spooktacular all at the same time.

Keep your colour schemes simple by using black, white, and an accent colour (which can be either red, purple, or orange).  If you are in a time crunch, simply pull together household items in this colour scheme, and add a few white pumpkins, and you have an instant festive table.  Be creative in how you display your pumpkins.  Fill up a large glass bowl with them, or place them on top of a wine glass or a martini glass.

The dollarstore is another great place to find inexpensive decorations for your Halloween table. Just be careful not to get the tacky items, but look for things that are authentically spooky, and won't look too tacky on your table.

Choose foods for your dinner that relate to your colour scheme. It does not have to be witches fingers and eyeball soup.  Look for vegtables that compliment your colours, for example, use sweet potatoe to bring out the orange, or a stir fry with orange or red peppers. Top it off with a chocolate fudge desert, and a cocktail in a festive colour. All quick and easy ways to bring your dinner party together.

Happy All Hallows Eve planning!!
