Happy Tuesday! So, back when this little site was a little baby, I styled a Pink-O-Ween party to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation! My grandmother and mother-in-law are both breast cancer survivors. This is a cause I feel very passionate about. Since I have always loved this Pink + Halloween concept (October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month after all), I decided to style an updated party table in the Pink-O-Ween theme! I hope you’ll be inspired to invite your girlfriends (or “ghoulfriends”) over for a Pink-O-Ween Dinner Party! Encourage everyone to donate to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I’ve included tips to recreate the look below the pics…
To recreate the look, start with a black tablecloth! Mine has a spiderweb detail on it but solid black is also perfectly fine! Next up are black plates (they don’t have to be fancy, I love these from Target). Top with a fun pink patterned salad plate. Mine are from Hobby Lobby but you can also use a solid pink or look online for a unique set! I listed a few below that I sourced. Black glassware is so fun for a chic Halloween beverage (like a Witch’s Brew Cocktail).
For a centerpiece, we used black and white striped candles and a pink vase of white roses. Black spiders throughout the tablescape added the perfect spooky touch! Little favors at each place setting were pink chocolate truffles (I love Lindt!) in black and white striped cupcake liners. Just keep the pink and black color scheme going and your pink-o-ween tablescape will be perfect!
I always like to pick up ribbon and wrapping paper that match my tablescape for extra little “touches”! Here, hot pink ribbon and black/white striped wrapping paper did the trick! You can use the ribbon around vases, glasses, little gifts, etc. This is a great way to help carry out your theme throughout the table.
This would also be a cute party to set up ‘party/bar style’ at an office workplace or school. Simply use paper plates and cups and a large side table. Use black or pink cake stands for spooky treats. Let coworkers or officemates enjoy a few pink Halloween treats during the day and a chance to learn more about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month! You could even include a donation jar on the table. I hope you’re inspired to throw a Pink-O-Ween party this Halloween!
