When it comes to a Halloween party color palette, you just cannot go wrong with traditional black and orange. Whip together a cohesive look with simple decorations that come together for a looks that’s totally pin-worthy.

Balloons: Use balloons for instant, and affordable, party décor. To create an impressive décor statement using balloons, follow these instructions:

  1. Blow up balloons with varying sizes. Some small, some big!
  2. Use glue dots to attach balloons together and attach to a corner of a wall, or doorway.
  3. Wrap the balloons with fake spider webs.

DIY Bats: Attach 3D bats to your walls is simple and a cheap decoration. Follow this template to make it easy!

Food: And finally, serve up treats that match your party colors. We love the black and orange cake in the mood board. Those little bats are adorable and surprisingly easy to make!
