The witching hour is upon us! Learn how to plan a wickedly wonderful Halloween party like this one with tips and free printables, brought to you by Evite in partnership with NABISCO and SWEDISH FISH.
Wicked Potion Party Invitation
First, invite guests to your Halloween party by sending this free coordinating Evite invitation below.
Wicked Potion Party Décor
Hints of black and gold bring this glam get-together to life. Give your wicked potion party an elegant upgrade by hanging a gold sequin backdrop behind the food and drinks table, then add these black printable bats as accents. We recommend printing the printables on poster or foam board (we enlarged them, which you can do at your local printer or office supply store) then taping them to your backdrop to secure. To make the gold glitter pop, stick to something simple like a plain black tablecloth to cover the food table. If you want to make it feel extra festive, sprinkle gold confetti circles on top, add black and gold platters and spray paint plastic pumpkins black and gold. To tie the theme together, frame this printable welcome sign and set it on one side of the table (you can also enlarge the poster to hang in front of the table or on a door). Artfully arrange your food front and center so guests can grab and go with ease.
Don’t forget to encourage guests to come in costume. We suggest wearing a witch or wizard costume or a cat mask with a black suit or dress.
To truly bring this theme to life, hang this printable banner in the center of your backdrop, then adhere these printable black bats along the outer edges. Stringing up your banner is simple — just download and cut out the banner on a piece of plain 8.5 x 11″ cardstock, then fold and tape the tabs on the back to a piece of plain black ribbon. Use a piece of tape to secure the ribbon to a wall or doorway.
Wicked Potion Party Food
An elegant affair requires elegant snacks and sweets. Dress up TRISCUIT crackers by topping them with caramel, apples and Brie for a sweet-and-savory snack. Don’t forget to download the printable recipe flag to match. Just print it on a piece of cardstock, then tape it to a toothpick. We’ve even included some blank recipe flags so you can write in your own wickedly delicious creations while sticking with your theme!
Give guests something sweet to snack on, like these almost-too-cute-to-eat NUTTER BUTTER Black Cats. These sweet eats pair peanut butter and chocolate plus two kinds of candy for the ultimate mini munchie. For the finishing touch, download the printable recipe flag so guests know what’s being served.
No Halloween black cat is complete without a witch by its side. These spellbinding and delicious OREO Witches’ Hats are a must-have at your wicked potion party — just download the printable recipe flag to place on top.
Wicked Potion Party Drinks
Dress up simple soda bottles with these printable bottle labels. Bonus points if you spray paint the caps gold.
Want to serve something more standout than soda? Try this easy-to-make mocktail. First, line the rim of a glass goblet a with edible gold glitter, then top it off with ginger ale. The gold glitter stars instantly make any drink extra glamorous.
Wicked Potion Party Activity
For a fun way to make — and keep — memories, gather guests in front of a photo booth backdrop to snap some shots. To make your photo booth backdrop, hang a piece of black-and-white striped paper against an empty wall. Download these printable photo props to get guests in the spirit and have them share their pics on social media with #GhostessParty! You can even share the photos from the evening on your Evite invitation or send the pics home with guests as a sweet keepsake.
For photo props, all you need are scissors, 1/4″ wooden dowels (available at craft stores) and a hot glue gun. After downloading the printable photo props, print them on cardstock, cut them out, then glue them onto the wooden dowels. Make sure the dowel is placed correctly on each prop. Set up a side table next to your photo booth to hold your props (we recommend putting your props in a glitzy gold jar that matches your theme).
Wicked Potion Party Favors
Since it is Halloween, send guests home with a party favor filled with candy (we like SWEDISH FISH). To put your party favors together, simply purchase a paper treat bag, attach the printable goody bag tag then hand them out as you say goodbye to guests.
