Guest Blogger: Halloween Party Decor from Goodwill

Halloween was a blast last year. It’s one of my favorite holidays. We had so much fun decorating for and throwing our Halloween party and I thought I’d share some highlights with you.

Spooky entry!

I purchased candlesticks from Goodwill and painted them black. I also found dripping blood candles and I was thrilled until they dripped everywhere including all over the table cloth and the rug. I will stick with regular candles from now on. I snagged tons of skulls and crows. I painted the plastic skulls black and silver and also used a few from last year that I’d sprayed with glitter spray paint. I replaced all of the bulbs in the lamps and light fixtures with red bulbs, adding to the spooky feel.  I already owned the bulbs. I’d used them for my fire and ice themed 40th birthday party a few years ago. The food and the skulls were displayed on cake stands that I found at Goodwill and we also used for our wedding. We also decided to serve Halloween inspired cocktails. Of course we hit up Goodwill for some vintage looking cocktail glasses.

Outside we had a fire pit and on the table I used a tray I found at Goodwill. It was an engraved tray (an award) but since I was going to put candles, mini gourds and skulls on it, the engraving wouldn’t show. I wanted to carry the spooky ambiance outside.
