A guide to hosting a charming Halloween movie night! Create a not-so-spooky evening with popcorn candy and some charming Halloween decorations. Also, sharing a list of our favorite family friendly Halloween movies!
I always try to incorporate some charm in everything I do. Halloween is no exception, so we put together a charming Halloween movie night. I love Halloween! Mostly for the fact that it kicks off the holiday season — pumpkin carving, dressing up, homemade chili and trick or treating.
It’s also been one of my favorite holidays for entertaining. Every year, I host a small Halloween night for Romeo and a few of our close friends and nothing makes me happier than creating those memories for their childhood.
I like to keep our Halloween movie night light with some not too spooky Halloween movies. I shared a few of my family favorites below… who likes stuff frightening anyway?! I like just a little spook! Below are some of my favorite items and tips for hosting a charming Halloween movie night.
Halloween Movie Night Ideas
For simple decor, stick these paper bats on the wall. I used the ones from Martha Stewart’s Halloween collection, so easy and fun! You can also do this with spiders.
Flowers make great Halloween decor! Create an arrangements with darker colors and in a black vase to go with the holiday theme.
Faux pumpkins, skeleton decanters, enamel black dishes and wooden bowls are all great for Halloween decorations!
Halloween Party Food
For food, make an easy slow cooker chili or pot roast when entertaining for Halloween. Serve buttery popcorn and some fun Halloween appetizers.
For easy drinks serve pumpkin beer (goes well with chili!), hard apple cider. For kids apple juice or homemade almond milk horchata.
I used this glass skeleton decanter for spiked cider!
It’s not Halloween without candy! We stocked up on candy from one of our favorite boutique candy stores, Sugarfina! I filled bowls with candy, as well as these clear tubes!
