I have been wanting to host a girls night witch party for years, and I finally got around to doing it last Saturday. In my opinion it was the perfect day for it, super rainy and windy and stormy all day! I loved it! I had a lot of plans that I didn’t get around to because for some reason after I got back from Hawaii and finished all the Halloween decorations, I just didn’t feel like doing any party prep. Fortunately though, I was planning on keeping up the Halloween decorations for the party, so there were a lot less party decorations I had planned. It was a really fun night!
I found these tiny felt witch hats at Hobby Lobby and placed them around the house.
And I got some orange and black balloons as well.
The table was what I worked on the most, and I was really happy with the results. I pulled out the white branches and put them in a vase with some mini pumpkins and then had a couple crows and an owl perched in the branches. Then I added some pumpkins, some black netting, a black lantern and the candelabra and table runner from the October décor.
I looked everywhere for some little broomsticks to go with the silverware, but I couldn’t find any anywhere. So I made some using a dowel and some raffia. I cut sections of raffia and hot glued them to the end of the dowels and then tied a thin string around them. I love them!
I did something similar to some skewers to make “Broomstick Sandwiches”.
The rest of the food I saw on Pinterest, I made some pumpkins with small oranges and celery, and some “pumpkin” deviled eggs.
Then I made a couple of chocolate witch hats. I filled the ice cream cones with melted chocolate and toffee… it was a lot of chocolate. Not for everyone, just for the real chocolate lovers out there… like me! I used some orange rock candy for the buckles for both hats.
I used this recipe to make some caldron’s out of puff pastry and pudding. Except that my grocery store didn’t have the cups, so I used whole sheets and cut them with cookie cutters. They were so good. I made Vu try a bite before hand and he had a really skeptical look on his face when he saw it, but then wasn’t happy with just one bite and wanted the rest of it too. They are black from a black food coloring spray, they are not burned. I made the witch food tags in Illustrator.
The drink glasses were my second favorite. I used the mason jars again, and cut out some different witch images on black paper and circles on orange paper and then glued them onto the jars. I love the witch flying on the broom.
Witch costumes were encouraged, but not required and I was so happy that so many ladies decided to dress up! They all looked great!
I made a little “Which Witch is Witch” Trivia game, and it was definitely too hard… so lesson learned. But it was still fun. Next time, all multiple choice! I also created a “Witch” song playlist that was playing on the Sonos through the whole house all night. It was such a great night!
