Although Halloween isn’t as huge in Australia as it is in America, I know alot of you still do put something together for Halloween (or maybe you’d like to try it for the first time this year?) so I have gathered some options out there into this mini post for you all to help with your planning and just as a starting point for some inspiration. Also make sure you have a look at my recent Owl Theme post if you want to incorporate Owl’s into this theme as well!
This is also perfect if you have a little one’s birthday around Halloween and are doing a Halloween style birthday party.
Of course most party shops at this time of year will be stocking lots of Halloween novelty items so I haven’t included alot of these types of items in this post because they are easily found at these party shops as well as shops such as Spotlight etc.
If you love vintage why not host a vintage style halloween party? This is a gorgeous invitation printable set to you for this style:
These printables are also really cute:
How fantastic is this? If you want to do a halloween party but want it to still be girly – these are a terrific option:
Perfect for a birthday party around the time of Hallloween – a Little Pumpkin printable set!
These invitations could be used for a halloween party or birthday party around halloween. A simple classic option:
Set the scene with a spiderweb backdrop such as this one:

Hanging decorations are a simple way to create a great effect all over your party area:

Some tableware options based around oranges, purples and blacks:
Get your treats into the Halloween spirit with these items which are often also available in other colours that you can mix in:
These decorations will help spook up your cupcakes!
Special Themed Items:
I haven’t included much in this section because as I mentioned you can easily find alot of props for this theme in shops such as Spotlight and party shops, and this is only a mini-blog post. But here are a few ideas:
A mirror such as this from Ikea (and you might be able to find cheaper options elsewhere) are perfect for a centrepiece option:
A black candleabra also make a great centrepiece for Halloween but also your adult dinner parties too:
Favours/Take Home Gifts
I haven’t included novelty options in this Halloween mini-post because there are many widely available at this time in the shops. However here are some packaging options for either your novelty favours or sweet take home gifts, starting with these cute cauldrons which make a really unique packaging option:
Embellish your packaging with tags, ribbon, stickers or for a vintage theme I love these vintage halloween scrabble tiles!
Another perfect option for a vintage style halloween party:
Or use these chalkboard labels as your thank you tags for a simple but effective look!
