Black and White Halloween Decorations & Parties
Set the stage with fantastic decorations and party decor. Some of these parties are absolutely amazing, but please don’t feel like you need to go crazy and copy every detail. Pick just one or two items of inspiration from the following parties and decorations, and you’ll be getting the perfect start.
Pro Tip: Planning to use party printables? Printing on 8.5 x 11 photo paper means your decorations will look perfectly crisp. But framed prints can easily be printed out on less expensive heavy duty printer paper or white card stock without sacrificing quality.

Black & White Halloween Crafts
Give the kids something to do by having them make one of these crafts at the party. Or if you’re up to it, make one on your own before hand. (Honestly I love the pumpkin cloche and think that could be an incredible addition to any party, but I know that my girls would be all about the candy bar wrappers…mostly for the candy inside.)
