A Spooky Halloween Dinner Party is a fun and delicious way to celebrate.
Since becoming empty nesters and beginning our yearly couples costume tradition, I’ve thought it would be fun to have an adult costume dinner party.
Since our family room is under renovation it made it easy to set up the room for the dinner party. We had 16 guests and I wanted everyone to be at the same table so I used 3 folding tables to create one big square table. Two tables were parallel and then a placed one table across the end of the two.
I went with a black and white theme. I used decor I had and picked up some black and white tapers and glass candle holders from the dollar store. The cute little tombstones came from the dollar bin at Target.
My flowers were a couple of different bouquets from Trader Joes that I put together in an old vintage coffee urn I just happen to have laying around. Doesn’t everyone have a vintage coffee urn laying around!?
Dinner was Chicken Breasts Supreme, Cashew Nut Rice, Roasted Veggies, Artisan Breads and a delicious Autumn Apple Salad. Dessert was one of my favorite fall desserts and the friend who gave me the recipe brought it. This Apple Pudding Cake is so good!
Draping gauzy fabric everywhere is the perfect way to decorate!
Put it over the top of your lamps, in your windows and on the mantle. I found the fabric at my local fabric store.
And I picked up some white sheets at Goodwill and draped them over the furniture for a haunted house look!
It was a fun night. Good friends, good food and good conversation – always a perfect combination!
