Are you hosting or attending a Halloween party this coming week, and feeling the pressure? Fear not (or maybe do, if you’re going for a frightfully fabulous look), we’ve gathered all the inspiration you’ll need, from party decor to snacks to make or bring.

If you shiver at the thought of kitschy jack-o-lanterns and blasé broomsticks, a sophisticated soirée may be in the cards for you this Halloween. A classic color scheme like black, white, and gold (with perhaps a dash of orange) and wicked treats sets the tone for an elegant evening.

When throwing a Halloween party for kids, you may have to strike a balance between too spooky and too cutesy. These decorations and treats are perfect for all ages, and will make you the coolest house on the block when trick-or-treaters stop by.

A themed Halloween party allows you to set a cohesive mood. In the case of having the partygoers dress in the theme you’ve chosen for libations and decorations, it has the additional bonus of taking some of the stress out of costume choices. The possibilities are endless- a mysterious masquerade ball, dazzling carnival, your favorite movie, book, or time period… personally, we’re dying (excuse the pun) to go to a murder mystery party that is 1920’s themed. A little party never killed nobody, right?
