THROW A MONSTER MASH DANCE PARTY


Dust off your dancing shoes and throw it back to a time of mid-century kitsch, when Tupperware parties were all the rage and girls carried dance cards and wore pointy bras. Add in a dash of silliness and spook and you'll be monster mashing with the best of them.


 
INVITES: check out these fun skeleton invites from martha stewart. they're mini versions of the popular moveable paper skeleton cut-outs people have been hanging on their doors for decades of halloweens.

DÉCOR: drape orange and black crepe paper from every corner of the ceiling, float black & orange balloons all around the dance floor, hang vintage paper cutouts of cats, ghosts and pumpkins on the walls and around the table. we got our inspiration from family circle.

EATS: try some ‘40s-60s party staples like these popcorn balls with candy corn from the pioneer woman.

OUTFIT: wear mad men-esque party dresses for the ladies and bow ties for the gents, like this past collection from banana republic, as seen on fashionista.

DRINKS: for a traditional yet festive drink choice, try these sriracha bloody mary cocktails from white on rice couple.
 
P.S. plan old-timey activities like bobbing for apples and ducking for donuts. For music, check out these fun Songza playlists - mad men: sally's secret dorm party, trackula: psychobilly & horror punk, and the ultimate halloween party.
