halloween dishes
For this party I used several different dishes to lessen the confusion when we were serving up the food. It was all part of my mastermind scheme: orange for the salad, white for the pasta, glass bowls for the fruit, etc. For your party please, please don’t give in and use paper plates. Remember to keep your Halloween Green. I know what you’re thinking, “But Brittany you have a lot more dishes than I do.” No, I have a lot more pink and blue dishes than you do. It was hard for me to come up with Halloween colored dishes too. But you can make it work, just use a little creativity.


  1. I love this idea. I really need to do this more; less paper and plastic. I love how your dishes look ~ and your pictures are great (from all your party posts) I couldn’t put my finger on it until today. Your pictures are huge, makes me want to jump right in on the fun. Thanks Brittany.

  3. I agree about using more glass and less paper. It’s really hard, though, when every party store, card store, big-box warehouse, and specialty store has the most festive, cutest printed paper products!! Flea markets, dollar stores, department store sales, even ebay — they all have great finds and bargains on glassware — mix and match festive style!!! Thanks, Brittany! (pictures, as always are beautiful)

  4. Thank you for pointing out the whole thing with the dishes. I tie myself into knots over this one watching normally eco aware people pick up paper or plastic everything for parties… it doesn’t make sense to me. I usually point out that a)It’s a tree… trees are much better when left intact, not thrown in the garbage. b)it’s cost effective to use the same dishes over and over (there are SO many ways to use clear dishes or white dishes and add personality with coloured accents) c)begging borrowing and stealing from your mother are always an option… there are ALWAYS enough dishes on hand if you get creative and d)I was raised to see paper and plastic as looking cheap. It looks tacky IMO, especially when we ALL KNOW that it’s not the right thing to do! Why are you going to all the trouble to put the details of a party together to look brilliant and feel awesome if you are going to take a nose dive with the dishes? Just sayin’
