Witches Dinner Party
Photography by Kristen Steele Photography
Inspired by these cute witches wine labels from PaperStyle, I designed a Witches Dinner Party shoot to inspire you for the upcoming Halloween season! I love that this label also comes in invitations so you can send them out to your favorite girlfriends. They can park their brooms at the door, and enjoy a night of spooky sips and tasty treats!
These fun lime green chargers were found at the fabulous Hobby Lobby. They also come in a couple other bright and fun colors! My Mom had these fun black and white swirled plates that worked perfectly for a spooky twist to the place setting. A simple black tablecloth topped with a purple Halloween fabric overlay set the stage for our dinner party. The glittered chandeliers hung from the ceiling were found for just $2.50 at Target – amazing! I snatched up a ton of them when I saw them and have since used them for a Parisian “Black & Purple” Birthday Party for my best friend.
I also hung fun witches shoe ornaments from spooky black trees – the shoe ornaments are fun favors for your guests at the end of the night! No witch should fly away empty-handed :) The centerpiece witches shoe came from Pier1 – a store I am all kinds of in love with! Adding in a few other fun props like the Witches Cupcakes in mini martinis and Witches Cupcake Skewers and we were all done!
Sample Menu Ideas
Green Witches Brew Cocktail
1 oz Vodka
1 oz Rum
1 oz Midori melon liqueur (for the fun green color, or add food coloring to any type of liqueur)
Shake vodka, rum, and liqueur and pour over ice in a highball or martini glass.
Fill with lemonade.
Mini Witches Broom Treats
Fruit by the Foot Roll
For each one, cut a 2-inch length from a roll of Fruit by the Foot.
With the shorter ends on the side, fringe the bottom of the strip (leaving a 1/4-inch border uncut along the top) to create thin broom bristles.
Then moisten the upper edge of the fruit with a drop of water and tightly wrap it around one end of a thin pretzel-stick broom handle.

Cackling Crackers and Full Moon Dip
I love the idea of using food coloring to die your food for Halloween. It’s the perfect way to get the spooky colors. Black food coloring or food gel is used here to make crackers. And a hot chicken dip or cheese dip would be perfect! Find the recipe for this image here.
