11 Must-Makes for a Classic Halloween Party
As you may have noticed, Halloween prep is in full swing here at Brit + Co. This week’s been all about covering the classics, from candy corn bark to modern Jack O’Lanterns. Of course, what would the point of all these clever projects be without a party? Presenting 11 things you’ve just gotta make for a classic Halloween party. And, since we’ve got a mean sweet tooth, our sights are set on the dessert table, of course ;) The best part of it all? You can buy all of these DIYs in one neatly bundled Classic Halloween Party Kit, or as individual kits in our Halloween shop.
Washi-Striped InvitationsThe perfect party starts with an invitation, of course. Go old school and send snail mail invites to class things up a bit. This invitation is easy as pie to make with our free printable (download here!) and washi tape (buy here!).
2. White Chocolate + Candy Bark: Candy bark is one of our favorite go-tos, for any holiday. This batch was made with candy corns, peanuts, and Reese’s Pieces. Nom.
4. Candy Corn Martini: Of course, no party’s a real party without a seasonal cocktail. For this sipper, we created candy corn-infused vodka and shook it up with homemade honey simple syrup.
Festive Treat BagsYou’re never too old for treats with your tricks, and we’re definitely digging this modern take on the classic orange and black motif. To create your own, the first thing to do is download our printable label template. Next, purchase the striped bags from our shop.
Print the labels on label paper, fill bags with candy, and seal ’em up with your new labels. That’s it!
8. Beautifully Carved Pumpkins: Adorn your porch or even your dining table with beautifully carved pumpkins, thanks to our handy dandy templates.
11. Four Layer Candy Bar Cake: And finally, our crowning piece, a Four Layer Candy Bar Cake. Seriously. Four. Layers. Of. Candy. And yes, Snickers are involved.
All in all, the party turned out pretty darn well!
