The Best Pastel Halloween Party Ever

Halloween parties should be equal parts fun, whimsy and spooky, and this one delivers! This pastel Halloween photo shoot, showcasing the sweetest Pottery Barn costumes, includes one of my signs in the adorable set-up. Can you believe it?! From creating during Annabelle’s naps to an item featured in a Pottery Barn photo shoot - what a difference five years makes! Eeeek!
Whether a Halloween themed birthday party, baby shower, or festive class fun, read on for all of the sweet and spooky ideas to make your party sparkle! 


Lets Talk Color

Gone are the days that orange and black have to dominate the scene for a Halloween party. I love how all of the pastels come together at this party to make an inviting atmosphere for kids of all ages. Instead of using the traditional pumpkin orange as the focal color try using coral, it is the Pantone color of the year after all!

After choosing the focal color you can pick various shades within the same family to create a warm and cohesive look. Shades of coral and pink go beautifully with gold and a touch of black, it is Halloween after all! The florals, balloons, signs, throw cushions, confetti, and table decor all help to tie the pastel theme together.

You'll wow your guests with stylish party decor from Glamfetti. She has the spookiest balloons and DIY balloon arch kits that will make your party Pinterest-worthy! From spooky ghosts to sparkly moons, you'll find the perfect pieces to bring your vision to life. I mean check out this balloon arch, it's totally swoon-worthy wouldn't you agree?!Pastel halloween party set up with balloon arch and tricks and treats sign

If you do include a balloon arch at your party, always ensure to have plenty of extra balloons floating around so your tiny guests can entertain themselves!

And of course if your party has a balloon arch you have top it off with a Sugar Crush Co sign! I love the pink acrylic Tricks & Treats sign that was made for this pastel photo shoot. Since I make these myself I can customize them to say anything you would like to perfectly suit your celebration! These signs are amazing because they are reusable and will last for many years. Also, since each word is it's own separate piece you can use them at different celebrations throughout the year.

 Halloween Party Table Set-Up

When planning a party, always consider who you're throwing it for. When throwing a party for the little ones in your life, why not bring everything down to their level. I love how this Halloween picnic is right at kid height! A coffee table or two side tables pushed together are perfect and of course some big cushions to sit on make the kids feel right at home!

This gorgeous Halloween picnic set up was designed by  Picnics in the City. I love how all of the florals have a pops of coral, greenery and pastel pinks which blend so nicely with the gold candelabras, flatware, and cups.

 The Sweets

You can't have a party without sweets. There are so many adorable yummies to swoon over! Check out this gorgeous drip cake created by Wink by Erica. I am obsessed with all of the colorful layers, the florals and of course the spiderweb donuts that top it off.
