Almost everything came from Oriental Trading which is easily everyone’s Halloween Headquarters.
They have not so scary and spooky decor as well as great prices on candy and costumes.
Halloween Party Food
My motto is Work Smarter, Not Harder so with that in mind so we provided good party food but not everything took a lot of time.
I picked up some chocolate-covered doughnuts with pretty colored plastic vampire teeth from the bakery. See how they match our color scheme! Those were the first to go!
We even found these super fun edible Halloween Fortune Cookies at Oriental Trading. They are individually wrapped so perfect for handing out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night or including in your Halloween party goodie bags as we did.

Halloween Party Decorations
We set up our Not So Scary Halloween Party on our dining table which is a little wide. That works out great when we have a dinner party but for this party, we turned our table around and decorated the backside with fun Orange and Black Tissue Paper fans.

The mini Jack-o-lanterns are all filled with licorice sticks. You should be able to find those at the Dollar store.
