Formal Halloween Party Invitations & Ideas

Friday, September 14th, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone!  Looks like it’s going to be the last warm weekend we have in North Carolina, as the cooler weather seems to be on it’s way.  This means it’s time to start thinking about the fall season and all of the fun events you have to plan before the end of the year.  While browsing through Pinterest the other day, I found some great inspiration for a formal Halloween party, and wanted to share some ideas with our readers.

A formal Halloween party, or a Halloween dinner party, is a great idea for adults wanting to spend some time with family and friends during the fall season.  Fall and Halloween give off such a beautiful color palette which makes party planning and decorating easy, with hues of orange, black, white and red.  Invite your friends over for a formal Halloween dinner party at your home, and create some eerie or vintage ambiance as your guests arrive.

In the above collage, you’ll see a bunch of different ideas to give you inspiration for your fall party.  Set the scene by decorating your front porch or entrance way with Halloween themed lanterns, pumpkins and a branching fall wreath.  As your guests enter your home, dazzle them with a dark and eerie table spread featuring poisonous wine, skeleton place cards, deadly cocktails and a gorgeous black table spread with orange napkins and gourd table centerpieces.  Offer up some tasty treats with mini deserts served in shot glasses, Halloween cupcakes or cake pops.  You can even have a themed dinner with some daring Halloween recipes.

Set the tone for your party with a formal Halloween party invitation, like the Halloween pocket invitation shown in the collage.  Our pocket style Halloween invitations are perfect for setting the scene for a formal Halloween dinner party with a sleek pocket with an elegant, vintage or patterned insert card to carry your important party details.  The pocket is brightened by a colored silk pre-tied bow, which is available in black, orange and white.  We also have utterly spooky Halloween party invitations which are great for creating an elegant Halloween affair.
