With Halloween around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about throwing a party. One of the thriftiest ways to get into the Halloween spirit without spending a lot of dough is to through a little dinner party. Why not have a small get-together in before heading out to larger parties (that other people have to put together ;) ).
I recently visited my favorite dollar store, Dollar Tree and came up with some great inspiration for a fun party. I found some adorable dishes and then chose coordinating accessories from there, trying to stay in an orange, black, white color scheme:
Throw a candle in a few of these skeletons for instant mood lighting.
This bright orange spiderweb table cover will anchor all of the elements on the table.
Adding the skeleton decoration above the dining room door along with spreading the spider webs around the room will bring the entire place together!
Let's look at the numbers:
$8 for plates and serving dishes
$7 table cover & candles(6)
$2 coordinating candies
$3 spiderwebs(2) & door decor
Free: use your own glasses, silverware, and napkins (white)... If you have them laying around, try to add in some punches of purple with flowers!
So, for a grand total of $20 you can set the mood for a fun and festive pre-party dinner! Just don't forget to add the food!!
Remember, it’s important to stay picky to avoid making it look like you shopped at the dollar store. For more tips on finding deals vs. duds at the dollar store, check this out. Have you started thinking about Halloween plans yet? If you’ve written a post about décor, please show me your link!
