{budget} glam halloween decor

I loooooove Halloween. Even with the 90+ weather goin’ on, it’s officially October, therefore officially Halloween planning time! I wasn’t going to throw a party this year because I am pinching pennies for our winter vacation, but the thought of not having one was making me sad. Plus I am getting prodded by a few friends about it. Doitdoitdoit. So, I’m doing it. {I’m a sucker}.

This year, though, it’s going to be on a shoe string. Last year ran me $400+, so this year I’m going to try to do it on $100. That includes food, beverages, decor, prizes, invites and costumes. I’m scouting the web for ideas on cheap but awesome party decor, making lists of necessities and recruiting some help from my friends on food and such. Thought I would share some of the things that have my wheels turning today:

Just a little spray paint and some stuff from nature would run only a couple dollars {Silver pumpkins, black branches}:

Printing your own makes for a cheap but totally festive party {cost of paper and ink}. Drink labels, framed letters/silhouettes, table cloth from Pottery Barn {good inspiration!}

Make your own cake stand out of hat boxes {definitely on the to-do list! Tabletops look better with stands!}, tin cans covered with scrapbook paper is super budget friendly!

Anyone already scheming their Halloween festivities? Any fun ideas to share?

  1. I’m currently in brainstorming mode for the Halloween party we’ll be hosting this year. Last year was our first and it was a good start, but I want to push it a little further this year.
