This little witch hat favor box is beyond fabulous and also plays three wonderful rolls in our party. First, it acts as a wonderful place-setting for guests at the table. Next, it adds a little modern witch-flare to the candle lite table. And, lastly, it is the perfect little favor for guests to take home at the end of the night.


To make these Witch’s Hat Party Favor Boxes you will need:
black paper
Witch’s Hat party favor box template (download below)
black crepe paper
hot glue gun
candy and treats to fill the box

First, cut the Witch’s Hat party favor box out of black paper. Glue some crepe paper over the hole on the circle. Assemble and fill the cone portion of the Witch’s Hat. Glue the circle shape on top of the cone. Turn the hat over to be circle side down, cone side up. Either leave the favor box as is, or dress it up with a little black crepe paper or tissue fringe.




The crepe paper should hold the treats in place. To open, simply push the crepe paper out of the way with your fingers to reveal the surprise!

A witch must have a witch hat, so a Witch’s Soiree isn’t complete without a witch’s party hat! I made these fun Witch Party Hat headbands for our party guests for a little sophisticated fun.


To make a Witch’s Party Hat you will need:
black paper
witch party hat template
black headband
black crepe paper
glue gun

Directions: First, cut out the Witch’s Party Hat template onto black paper (see download below). Assemble the hat. Glue the top of the hat onto the black circle. You can either leave this part as is, or add a little black crepe paper around the edges. Glue the witch hat onto a black headband. Glue a little crepe paper onto the bottom of the hat over the headband to prevent the headband and hat from snagging onto hair.




To match the party, I encouraged the guests to come dressed in their business casual black best! Because, while most people may think of witches as green and ugly, at our Witch’s Soiree the witches looked modern and fabulous.

Want to throw a different Halloween party this year? Host a Witch’s night out at a Witch’s Soiree. It’s sure to be the highlight of the season. Download the banner below.


I wanted the Witch’s Soiree to have an eerie sophistication, and the easiest way to accomplish that was to keep the color palette a striking black and white.

I also wanted to add candles to set the mood. And, while I considered collecting a couple dozen candle stick holders, I was afraid it would compete with the color palette as well as run the risk of them getting knocked each over too easily. Instead I created my own candle table runner which proved to be easier and a lot less expensive to construct.


To Create a Candle Table Runner You Will Need:
a couple dozen candles of different heights and types
white cardboard piece the size you want your table runner to be (I ended up piecing together two cake boards)
hot glue gun
black net runner (I picked up this one at the dollar store)


First, use a hot glue gun and, one at a time, glue the candles onto the white cardboard cake board. Once you have all the candles glued to the board, drape the black net over the top. One by one, carefully help the net settle around the candle. Be careful not to let the candles burn low enough that they could catch the net on fire.

Make a batch of these versatile mini clay pumpkins to have on hand for whatever comes up during the Halloween (and Thanksgiving) holiday. Use them for festive cupcake toppers, drink stirrers, cork toppers, and more. They would even look cute on the table, poking out of a floral centerpiece or planter. Here’s how to make your own set…



You will need: orange oven bake clay, pumpkin candy mold, bamboo skewers, cork bottle stoppers

Directions: Using oven bake clay, roll two balls (one big and one small) to fit into your pumpkin candy mold. Add the small ball first, for the stem, and then add the larger ball on top. Press down firmly, but not too firmly (you don’t want it to get stuck in there). And then pop the finished pumpkin out of the mold. Bake in the oven according to directions and then add to cork wine stoppers, mason jars, even potted plants to bring a little bit of the pumpkin season into your home. Note: If you want to use the clay pumpkins as drink stirrers or cupcake toppers, soak bamboo skewers in water for up to 30 minutes before piercing them through the underside of the pumpkin. Then bake according to instructions. Soaking the skewers in water first will prevent them from burning in the oven.

Add a little bit of flair to party drinks for Halloween with this cool craft project that doubles as a fun surprise in a child’s lunch box. Bonus! You can make these spook-tacular silhouette straws in about 5 minutes. How’s that for quick and easy?



You will need: black and white chevron paper straws, construction paper (in various Halloween colors), scissors, glue stick or glue gun

Directions: Start by drawing Halloween shapes on a piece of construction paper. Try a bat, cat, and witch hat. If you don’t feel comfortable freehanding the drawings, you can use clip art or a small cookie cutter, like this one, for tracing. Cut out the shapes with scissors. Then glue the shapes onto paper straws, about two inches down from the top of the straw. Wait for it to dry and you have a set of Halloween straws perfect for your next party or kid’s lunch boxes (with a milk or juice box) to get them excited about trick-or-treating.
