If you love Amy Sedaris as much as we do, then this is the party for you! All of the details on how to throw your own Amy Sedaris Halloween party! This themed party is full of colorful, cheesy decorations… perfect for Halloween!
If you’re totally confused about the title of this post and don’t know who Amy Sedaris is, she’s a hilarious (and sometimes crass) comedian, actor, and bestselling author of two books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Crafts for Poor People.
She’s an unconventional hostess who brings a witty, hysterical, and bizarre side to entertaining. One of my favorite ideas… when your guests arrive, have a table set up with the junk you’ve been wanting to get rid of and a for-sale sign!
Is there a better way to sell your stuff than to a bunch of people you just convinced to come to your house?!
Amy’s crazy take on entertaining inspired us to host our own Amy Sedaris Halloween party!! We chose a few of our favorite DIYs from her books and had so much fun preparing a quirky, very funny and not-so-spooky Halloween party!! See the tips on how to host an Amy Sedaris party for Halloween below! Tomorrow we’ll be sharing 3 fun recipes we created too!
