A week ago, I hosted a small Halloween Lunch Party for girls ranging in ages 6 to 60. Tea from an English Brown Betty teapot was served with dessert. A brown teapot did not match my orange and black theme, but for Halloween everything is fun and nothing has to match, right?
In preparation for the Halloween Lunch, I set a themed table complete with a spider web tablecloth.
The white stuff in the center are popcorn hands. Below is a close-up. I filled food handler gloves (large size) with white popcorn, tied with a ribbon and added a plastic spider ring that was purchased at a cake decorating supply store.
As this was my first-ever Halloween party, I did a little extra decorating. I made the “witch is falling through the roof” from an umbrella. It was fun to make and was an attention-getter hanging from my living room ceiling.
As the younger guests arrived, there was a card table set up and ready with a festive coloring page. The girls loved having something to do while the mature girls chatted. Soon, everyone was coloring. I am delighted to share the link from The Pinning Mama‘s blog where I found the coloring page.
White and orange mini-pumpkins were out and ready to be decorated with adhesive-backed rhinestone studs. One simple game was played. Guess how many spider rings are in the jar?
It worked out well that I had party two weeks prior to October 31st. Everyone gets extra busy close to Halloween.
