Halloween Party Color Scheme

If you love traditional orange and black colors for Halloween you will enjoy our Halloween party decorations ideas. There is plenty of orange and black but it is complemented with lime green and purple for a whimsical look.

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 including exclusive candy and name brands. You will also find lots of allergy-friendly non-candy toys to give out as well.

We used four of the Halloween battery-operated Taper Candles for a little ambiance. I can’t even tell you how much I love the Haunted House Cupcake Holder!

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. See how they match our color scheme! Those were the first to go!

We loaded a fun Haunted House cake stand with store-bought cupcakes that we slid into our cute orange and black cupcake holders.

Don’t you just love those googly eyes peeping through the windows on the cupcake stand!

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 or including in your goodie bags as we did. 

The orange and white goodie cups are filled with Chex Mix. See my recipe for Pumpkin Spice Chex Mix that is perfect for Halloween party food.

We also served popcorn, pretzel sticks, mixed nuts, Cow Tails, Caramel Creams, Orange Slices, Candy Corn, Gummie Worms, and more.

We had plenty of Happy Halloween cupcake picks so we used some in the sweet and salty buffet.

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 Orange and Black Tissue Paper fans.

The center of our party table is layered with a spider web placemat, candy dishes filled with sweet treats, a couple of perfume bottles now called potion bottles, and a chalkboard sign which comes out at party time.

The mini Jack-o-lanterns are all filled with licorice sticks.

Our Not So Spooky Halloween Party buffet includes sweet and salty favorites.

Our table is layered with a purple metallic tablecloth which is topped with the lime green chevron runner, both from Oriental Trading. Our hanging chevron, polka dot, and striped Trick-Or-Treat banner and the green Chinese lanterns are also Oriental Trading finds.

  1. Thank you for sharing this Halloween party idea. I love everything about it and can’t wait to make it happen this year.

  2. What fun Halloween party decor! I prefer the not so spooky look. I haven’t had a look at Oriental Trading in years. I remember getting their catalog when I was a teacher and finding lots of fun items. I’ll need to have a look at their site. Thanks for sharing at Snickerdoodle, Shirley. Pinned.

  3. I like spooky at Halloween, but this is a great alternative. I like the way the theme is still clearly Halloween, but is more toned down. The decorations look great!
    Thanks for linking up to #HalloweenHorros 🙂

  4. What a great Halloween party! We fall into the not-so-spooky category also and this is one party the grandkids would love to attend. I like your bright colors and the individually wrapped fortune cookies. The cupcake holder is adorable!

  5. This is incredible. My kids would request parties for every single occasion if I were to pull something like this off. It’s amazing and the colours are awesome. Well done!

  8. We love Halloween! Halloween has always been a big family holiday so we have a good balance of spooky and not so spooky.

  9. Now this is right up my alley! I am not so good with Halloween because I get freaked out so easily. I can do a party like this. Those cupcakes look delightful.

  10. I love this idea. I love terrifying Halloween parties as much as the next girl, but when you have kids, you kind of have to dial back the terror a bit, you know? LOL

  11. We love celebrating Halloween! Sometimes it’s smart to make the get-together not too spooky especially with littles running around! I love the colors you chose and how that really makes it fun!

We enjoying hearing from you!
