How to Host a Halloween Movie Night

Planning a Halloween party of cinematic proportions need not send you to the grave. Instead, gather your best friends, ghouls, and goblins for a a stylish fright night of cinema, popcorn, and potions. It’s a great way to get into the spirit of the holiday without the complicated planning of a huge party. Read on to discover how to make it a fun, stylish night without breaking a sweat.


Clockwise from left: “Trick or Treat” lucite tray, Birdaria; copper Halloween cookie cutters, Williams-Sonoma; mercury-glass skull bottle stopper, Waiting on Martha; translucent black goblet, MADHOUSE; Halloween taper candles, Williams-Sonoma; “Fright Night” invitation, Postmark; “Rococo Noir” cake pedestal, Waiting on Martha.

Step 1: First, send out frighteningly fitting invitations like our “Fright Night” design to set the mood.

Step 2: Next, stock up on some jump-out-of-your-seat flicks.

Step 3: Set the (crime) scene by dimming all the lights and lighting lots of black taper candles. This adds instant effect and hides a multitude of sins.

Step 4: Next, pour your potion (a.k.a. red wine) into devilishly dark glasses for a presentation that’s sure to have your guests on the edge of their seats. Put a skull topper lid on the leftovers – you wouldn’t want it to go bad. The perfect way to present your potions? On a tray, natch. A “Trick or Treat” lucite tray fits the glamorous but ghoulish theme to a T.

Step 5: Finally, set out treats (or are they tricks?) such as popcorn, movie-theater candy, and cookies in the shape of bats, bones, ghosts, black cats, and skulls and crossbones on an ebony cake pedestal and you’ll be set for an evening of earthly delights… well, mostly.
