A Peek at the Fun: Thinking of throwing a Witch’s Night Out Halloween Party? I’m giving you everything to host an amazingly fun night out with the girls. Let the fun begin!
Grab your broomsticks, dust off your cauldrons and come learn how to host an amazing Halloween party. It’s that time of year where witches are loved and broomstick transportation is acceptable…so hop on board.
When the kids’ homework starts to pile up, the soccer schedules have me losing my mind and the household chores never seem to end, sometimes the Fun-Squared need a girl’s night out! I’ll use any excuse to leave the little monsters at home, put on my witch hat and spend a night laughing with friends.
I’ll show you step by step how to host a fun night out with the girls-everything from invitations to decorations, and I’ll even throw in some food ideas.
How to Host a Witch’s Night Out Party:
Invitations: Any good party starts with a fun invitation! This lets your guests know what to expect at your party and how amazing it’s going to be.
Not just any ordinary invitation will do if you want to knock their striped socks off. You can always take it up a notch or two by thinking outside the box. Invitations no longer need to come in a stamped envelope on a flat piece of paper-the more creative you get with your invitations, the more excited your guests will be to come.
For this party, I grabbed some fun soda bottles that matched our color scheme and added labels with the party details on them. This worked perfectly for me because all of my guests were local and I could hand deliver the invitations.
And… I have a free printable for you if you want to use it too! You can save it to your computer and then personalize it for your party! If you need help with how to do that, use this tutorial.
Witch Party Decoration Ideas: Step number one when planning a party is figuring out what colors you want to use. Since it’s Halloween, I chose green, orange, purple and black. Once you have that decided, everything else falls into place.
I knew I wanted to make this party fun and quirky-don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns. It is always important to make the guests feel special, so I personalized the table using name cards and labels on their drinks. (I have blank labels for you to use at the end of the post.)
Do you love that fun green and white polka dot table runner? Pro tip: it’s wrapping paper! Don’t be afraid to be creative with your tablescape.
In the napkin bundles for our table settings, I added a cute lollipop topped with a witches hat, orange and white stripped straw and tied it together with fun ribbon.
Food: Take a little time to think about what food you want to serve at your party. Do you want it to be a dinner? Do you want to just have treats? Some things to take into consideration-allergies, prep time, and cost.
Every good girl’s night has chocolate and lots of it. Chocolate cupcakes are a favorite of mine, so I knew I had to include them. This recipe is one of the best recipes you’ll ever try-it doesn’t disappoint!Print
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 18 minutes
- Total Time: 28 minutes
- Yield: 24 Cupcakes 1x
- 1 Devil’s Food Cake Mix
- 1 5.9 oz. box of instant chocolate pudding
- 1 C sour cream
- 1 C vegetable oil
- ½ C water
- 4 eggs
- 1Tbsp vanilla
Spoon the cupcake batter into muffin tins lined with cupcake papers. Fill them about 2/3 full or a little less.
Bake for 18-22 minutes (until they are just barely done-I always do exactly 18) at 350 degrees.
Then I simply frosted them with fun purple frosting, added some sprinkles and then topped them off with cute witch hats. To make the hats I cut them from black card stock and then used purple glitter to embellish a little. I taped the hats to orange and white straws for an extra kick of fun.
Check out our tutorial to see how to make this adorable cupcake stand…it’s so simple, you can make it in about 1 minute for under $10.
I also served these witch themed cookies. How can you resist serving cute cookies with fun hats on them at a witch’s night out party? (And also-who doesn’t love sprinkles?!)
I love the idea of a make your own treat because it not only gives you great food, but also something to do at the party. This is a great time for your guests to have fun together, talk and mingle. I know every witch’s story ends with biting into a poison apple, so I embraced and made this fun Poison Apple Bar.
This also makes a really fun take home gift. So encourage everyone to get dipping!
Entertainment: What are you going to do at your party to keep your guests busy and having fun instead of feeling awkward?
Possible ideas would include playing a fun and interactive game like Bunco or Bingo. Or make it a fun spa night complete green witch’s masks, pedicures for witch’s feet and a manicure for those warty hands.
Just keep in mind who you have invited and what they might enjoy and you’ll come up with the perfect activity.
If you’re doing games that would require a prize here’s a fun idea- a cute Witch’s Survival Kit:
Don’t ever get overwhelmed by throwing a party. It’s supposed to be fun! Your guests don’t care if everything is perfect, only if they’ve had a great time!
