On Wednesday, we showed you a fun and festive Halloween party plan. Today, we scare up some style by showcasing the darker side of sophistication with a hauntingly beautiful spread!
To keep things polished and chic, start with a color scheme based in inky black, then add touches of metallic gold, scarlet red, and some twinkling lights.
Our striking centerpiece was made using a standard styrofoam hat form, which can be found at most large craft supply stores. To create more defined facial features, we used a black paint pen to draw brows, and then outlined the eyes and lips. Once dry, we set about spray painting — but be careful!
Spray paint can literally melt styrofoam. We found the texture to be an interesting element, and held the can a bit closer to create a bumpy, borderline-scaly effect!
Of course, this sophisticated soiree wouldn’t be complete without something scary-good to sip! Everyone knows and loves the classic Shirley Temple, which is simply made with lemon-lime soda and grenadine — for a Halloween-worthy twist, we partially filled plastic prop syringes with the grenadine.
If you want to make this an adults-only beverage, just add a splash of flavored vodka or gin!
Finito! This boo-tiful tablescape is done, and ready to dazzle your dinner guests.
