Pink Halloween Party: thrift store decorations spray painted pink, pink Halloween food and snacks, costumes, and a craft.
Halloween just turned pink! I’m so excited to share my pink Halloween party with you. It was so much fun to put together and could not be cuter. We used so many great thrift store finds and gave some a fun makeover to create amazing pink Halloween decor.
We wanted to inspire you with this sweet get together for close friends or family. A black Halloween party is fun, but how about giving your Halloween parties a makeover with pink! It’s perfect as a Halloween get together, or to give you ideas for home decor items this spooky season.
I set up the pink Halloween party with three different centres for guests to enjoy. This setup is perfect for young guests to enjoy, and go back and forth to whatever they’d like.
Dress Up Centre
The dress up centre is the first thing I worked on. It wouldn’t be pink Halloween without some pink Halloween costumes to dress up in. We found so many great options at our local thrift store on a recent visit. There were big costumes and little costumes for every age group, for boys and girls. I thought that it would be fun to have some options, including a fun basket full of great accessories for princesses, knights, a flying ghost or a puppy.
These costumes aren’t just for Halloween. After the festivities add these to the kids’ dress up box, and enjoy them for years to come. Make believe is such a favourite.
We added some fun bats to our dress up centre as decorations. These are cut out of black scrapbook paper on my cricut. You can use my pattern in Cricut Design Space here. These would also be really great as pink bats, just use pink scrapbook paper instead. Once they were cut, I used simple tape on the back to attach them to the wall and they look so fun and festive.
Pink Halloween Food and Snacks
The pink Halloween food is my favourite centre. It was so much fun coming up with delicious and adorable snacks to enjoy at the party. These are great for kids or even midnight feasts on Halloween.
I used some thrifted glass bottles for our strawberry milk to match our pink decor. To make them extra Halloween-y I added some fun playful accents of little black vinyl bats.
I used my Cricut to cut out some small adhesive vinyl bats to stick on the glass. They were so simple to make and they’re so perfect for this party. Find my Cricut cut file here to make your own. I added some fun black and pink striped straws for the perfect festive pink Halloween drinks.
Peanut Butter Cup Bats
These little bat treats were so easy to put together and are the most adorable cookies. I used peanut butter cups as the base. Next, take a regular Oreo, and remove the filling. Cut the Oreo in half to make the bat wings. Attach the wings with a little icing, and use more icing to attach some candy eyes.
Mini Pumpkin Treats Containers
I used these cute little plastic mini pumpkins to hold some chocolate covered almonds. The mini pumpkins are from the thrift store and I gave them a makeover for our dessert table.
These were originally orange pumpkins, and I spray painted some light pink, and some a dusty rose. These pink pumpkins look so cute! One of the easiest ways to make sure they were food safe is to line the spray painted pumpkins with some parchment paper. We filled them with one of our favourite treats, chocolate covered almonds.
Caramel Corn with Pink Spider Webs
I made some homemade caramel corn for our party. It’s a favourite at our house. I love nostalgic homemade Halloween treats. Find our homemade caramel corn recipe here, or pick up some premade.
I served it in cute paper striped cups, and added a pink cotton candy “spider web”, and a little plastic spider (just make sure no one eats the spiders). Cotton candy doesn’t do well in humidity, so be sure to add it right before serving. This is a really cute idea to use as cupcake toppers too.
Pink Candy Apples
Another nostalgic homemade Halloween classic is candy apples. We made these ones pink to match our pink Halloween party theme. Get the full recipe to make the pink candy apples here. They are decorated with sprinkles and edible glitter, and they couldn’t look more magical. I also used one plastic spider on each too, so I was sure to warn guests.
These are traditional candy apples, like the red ones you might find at a carnival or fair. They’re super crunchy, and glossy and beautiful. Wrap some up to use as a unique gift and party favor for guests.
Pink Halloween Party Decorations Makeover
I found lots of fun finding Halloween decor and party supplies at the thrift shop, and used some old stuff from last year and gave it a pink makeover. The pumpkins all started out in various shades of orange. I used a light pink and a dusty pink spray paint and turned each one into a pink decoration to make it match our playful color palette. Our fun decorations turned out so cute. Another unique idea was to paint a few spiders pink too. Won’t the pink spiders be cute on a black cobweb for a spooky attraction. Spray paint is the way to take your decor from old to a new whimsical Halloween collection.
We found a pumpkin bucket and turned it into a plant holder for the party, after I spray painted it pink. The other one was a hollow craft pumpkin that the top was cut off of and was perfect as a plant holder too. These would also make for great decor on Halloween mantels, paired with a metal lantern or two.
Free Halloween Art
I also wanted to add some fun Halloween art to the party. These vintage botanical drawings are all available as a free digital download and are perfect as a Halloween print. I had them printed as colour engineers prints. I added a piece of wood to the top and bottom to hang them. You can read exactly how to hang the engineer prints here.
Find the spider art free download here. Also, find the bat art free download here. And, find the centipede art free download here. We hung them together for a spooky effect, and as a final touch topped them with some a pink sparkly star garland; a silver star garland would be cute too. We love our vintage inspired are as Halloween decorations.
Spider Wand Making Centre
It’s always fun to have a craft at a party for the mini ghosts and goblins to enjoy. I made a little craft table where kids of all ages could make their own spider wand. Be sure to check out the craft section of the thrift store for supplies. We found so many beautiful colours of yarn there for our craft.
To make the spider wand, start by making a large Pom Pom out of yarn, or use a large pre-made one. Parents can help with a hot glue gun to add spider legs made from pipe cleaners, a small dowel to make it into a wand, and little crown. The crowns are made of foam craft, and decorated with different jewels and pink ornaments, and sequins. Little ones will enjoy adding all the sparkles and glitter to mini crowns with craft glue. Lastly, the kids can choose ribbons to tie around the wand as an easy way to make them even more magical.
This pink Halloween party was so much fun and is the happiest place to be this Halloween! We had a great time dressing up, crafting, and snacking on all the treats. I hope it inspires you for some of your Halloween festivities.
With a pretty pink Halloween party like this, life is really a party!
