If you need some Halloween flower arrangement ideas, I have some cute ones to show you today. Using black and white flowers and incorporating hues of grey, you’re sure to instantly set a frightfully fun mood. And you don’t need to splurge on vases for these spooky decorations. Pull out your cans from the recycle bin and spray paint the cans black or leave them plain. You can even glue two cans on top of each other, just hide the seam with some ribbon (only the top can is used for flowers and water, but it gives the illusion of a taller vase). Then add feathers, mini signs, moss or painted branches to add interest to your Halloween floral arrangements. But most of all, have fun with it.

Here is a list of the flowers used in these arrangements: ranunculus, dusty miller, gerbera daisies, berzelia, scabiosa (with the centers painted black with acrylic paint), rudbeckia seed heads, football mums, spanish moss, and a manzanita branch.

What’s a Halloween Party without invitations? These awesome owl invites aren’t too spooky and they’re just right for delivering important party info. Click on any of the pictures below to download your own copy of the PDF to print yourself. (If you want someone else to do the work for you, check out Brightside Prints for the original, customizable invitation.)

1. Print the owl card onto white cardstock and cut into 5×7” cards. 2. Create invitation wording and print onto regular text weight paper. Cut to a 5×7” and roll into a scroll. 3. Punch two small holes into the owl invite. 4. Thread twine through the holes and secure the scroll to the owl card with the twine.

I first saw this lollipop stand tutorial on Martha Stewart (you can see the original directions here). I think lollipops in Halloween colors are the perfect addition to this treat table.

Supplies: 18 inch styrofoam cone, 1 spool of matte black ribbon and 1 spool of satin black ribbon, taper runner or double sided tape, scissors, lollipops.

Directions: Starting at the top, measure and cut a piece of ribbon to wrap around the cone once. Put a little bit of taper runner (used for scrapbooking projects) or double sided tape on the end of the ribbon. Wrap the cone at a slight angle with the ribbon and secure it with the sticky side of the ribbon to keep it in place. Repeat wrapping the cone with ribbon, alternating matte and satin finish ribbons to create a striped effect. Let the ribbons overlap a tiny bit, but so that you can still tuck a sucker in between the ribbon. Carefully stick lollipops into the styrofoam cone, in between the ribbon. As you add lollipops, the cone might get heavier on one side. Add more lollipops than you’ll need and keep them evenly distributed to keep the cone from falling over.

Having a Halloween Party? Donuts and apple juice are always a classic combination. And  a donut tree is a fun way to display your treats. Here are the steps for making your own donut tree.

Supplies: 24″ styrofoam cone, 12 ounce bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips, basting brush, 45-50 donuts, toothpicks.

Directions: Melt a 12 ounce package of chocolate chips in the microwave in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds. Once the chocolate is all melted, apply the melted chocolate to the styrofoam cone. It’s easiest to use a basting brush. Once the whole cone is covered in chocolate, carefully smooth the chocolate with your fingers (make sure your fingers are clean). If you have freezer space, store the chocolate covered cone in your freezer until you are ready to attach the donuts. Starting at the bottom, use 2 toothpicks per donut to securely attach each donut to the cone. Work your way up the cone until the whole cone is covered in donuts and your donut tree is complete. You’ll need about 45 donuts, depending on their size. Secure any donuts that need a little extra support with additional toothpicks.

Need low key Halloween Class Party ideas? Or some simple additions to a neighborhood get together? Set the table with a donut tree and a lollipop stand for guests to take a treat at their leisure (tutorials for both later this week). Add some dry ice to ordinary apple juice to make it look cool. And for the party games, turn household ingredients into their spooky alter egos with large jars, some imagination, and a blindfold. Try cornstarch and water for goo, boiled spaghetti noodles for brains, and long pretzel sticks for dried up bones.

Some of the items for this party were donated. Halloween costumes from halloweencostumes.com; decorations from Sweet Lulu; apple juice jar from Walmart; ladle from Gygi’s; original lollipop stand tutorial featured on Martha Stewart. Photos by Nicole Hill Gerulat. And a special thanks to Aimee Barbosa for assisting (check out her new blog The Elephant of Surprise).
