Kyle Schuneman's Tips to Throw a Budget Chic Halloween Party

Enjoy this Halloween party post from designer guest writer Kyle Schuneman!


Halloween is the time of year where everyone gets to let loose. Juggling kids’ trick-or-treating time with adult parties is always tough. Here are some great ideas for throwing a budget chic party so everyone can stop by and celebrate.

  • Photo booth fun. Using Tempaper, wallpaper a Gothic feature wall in your space to set the mood. It will be a great backdrop for a photo booth! Add a few Ikea candlestick sconces and some spider webs to complete the look; everyone can take a Polaroid memento away with them from the night!
  • Scary soup buffet. For the table, think buffet style to save you money. Use a clear punch bowl and fill with a delicious butternut squash soup. On the outside of the bowl, use washable window markers to draw a Jack-O-Lantern face on the outside for an instant centerpiece! Use cheap bowls with handles from CB2 (that you can use year round) so it’s an easy soup to eat while standing up and mingling! For drinks, have classic orange soda bottles in a metal ice bucket with some dry ice for effect.
  • Black carnations. Usually I wouldn’t recommend carnations, but since they are so cheap, they are a great alternative to more expensive flowers. With a coat of black floral spray paint, these ho-hum flowers can become quite the conversation piece. One can of spray will be able to cover dozens of flowers to fill the party.
  • Treat tree. While the parents will enjoy their Polaroid Take-A-Way, a treat tree is a chic way to showcase candy treats for the kids. Using remnant pieces of fabric, make festive sacks to hang from a spray painted branch; it's a great alternative to that boring candy bowl!
