Fun Witch Halloween Party Ideas for Witch’s Night Out! Find inspiration for hosting an epic gothic black, red, and gold-themed Witch Halloween Party.
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and it’s the perfect time to invite friends over to celebrate. Recently, I hosted a Witch’s Night Out for my friends. I decided on a gothic Halloween party theme complete with skulls, black witch hats, candles, and of course food and drink!
Easy Witch Halloween Party Ideas
These Witch Halloween Party Ideas were inspired by all of the fun Halloween party supplies and decorations from Oriental Trading. I got to preview their new Halloween line while visiting their headquarters this summer and found so many great things perfect for this year’s Halloween parties!
Sonoma Foodie Retreat Witch’s Night Out
When it was time to help host a blogger retreat in Sonoma with my friend Dorothy from Crazy for Crust, I knew I wanted to plan a witch’s night out for us. Even though it was still summer in wine country, we rocked the Halloween costumes!!
I hope you enjoy these fun and simple party ideas for hosting a creative witch-themed Halloween party.
How to Host a Witch Themed Halloween Party
When the weather is nice, I say move the party outside! Yes, go for it… pick up your dining room chairs and move them outside around a table. I stock up on folding tables for this purpose, but luckily our house in Sonoma had wonderfully long picnic tables that did the trick!
Here’s the final Halloween Party Table, but I’ll walk you through what I did below and also add a shopping list with links for where I got the party supplies. Thanks to Oriental Trading for all of the goodies. I pretty much got everything online through their shop!
Halloween Party Table Centerpieces
When decorating a party table, I always start with a few eye-catching centerpieces. My favorite find was the super-cool Gothic Halloween Skull Vase with Roses! Oriental Trading has so many amazing skeletons this year.
The skull came with the roses attached, but I wanted to sprinkle real roses throughout the table. Adding simple black lace around the vases is a simple added touch!
I even got the silver candleabra and candles from Oriental Trading for a very low price!
What Food Should You Bring to a Halloween Party?
I love traditional Halloween party food such as these spooktacular Halloween desserts, but if you want to throw a simple dinner party, ask friends to bring something to add to an epic charcuterie board.
Set up an additional table lined with kraft paper and pile it high with crackers, meats, fruits, nuts, dips and cheeses. This is so easy and will make an amazing party presentation!
We had a blast working together to make this amazing charcuterie board! Add your Halloween desserts throughout the fruits and cheeses, then watch everyone smile as they walk in the room to see your amazing spread! Halloween Crack would be adorable on this charcuterie board.

What Kind of Halloween Party Favors Should You Get?
For the perfect witch’s night out, you definitely need witch hats for everyone! I placed the hats on each guest’s chair. Along with the witch hats, I designed and ordered custom-made shirts through Oriental Trading for our trip. How cute are they? I love that they are soft, fit great, and were easy to order for a small group. Learn more about how to order your own shirts here.
Thanks to Kelly from The Suburban Soapbox for being my shirt model!
If you noticed, I placed a small gift bag next to each plate. To make the photos even more fun, I included funny wax lips as one of the goodie bag treats. Remember these from childhood?
We laughed so much that it was hard to take photos! ha!
When I took this photo of us all in witch hats in the middle of summer, I had to giggle wondering what the neighbors thought of us!
I think this is one of the most fun party tables I’ve set up in a long time. We had a blast!
