6 Creative Last Minute Halloween Ideas

It's Halloween! So you know what that means, right? If you haven’t already figured out what you're going to do for the Halloween party that you decided was a good idea to host, now is the time! Lucky for you, there are so many creative ideas out there that are quick and easy and perfect for those last minute parties. 

So what's the quickest way to spice up your pumpkin? Out with the carving and in with the monogramming, I say! Hey, I'm from Georgia. What can I say? We monogram everything. But seriously, guys. Grab a sharpie and hop to it! Free hand will do just fine. But if you're feeling a little hesitant you can always find a simple stencil online! Just find one you like, print it out and voila! Set it outside your door for instant curb appeal!


What are my other favorite go-to ideas for spooky soirees on the fly? How adorable are these candy bars dressed as 'mummies.' Simply buy full size Hershey bars, grab some toilet paper and some googly eyes and you've got the makings of the coolest treats on the block. Trust me, if word gets out that you're giving away full sized candy bars, you'll run out of candy fast. (Not always a bad thing in my opinion)

Looking for another way to spruce up your sweets this Halloween? Aren't these DIY trick or treat bags the cutest things ever? Get the free printable and the full tutorial here. So fun and festive! Don't you think? Speaking of fun, how great is this pumpkin turned cooler? Simply empty out a pumpkin, add ice, add beer... And there you have it! An instant conversation piece. See, I'm all about simplicity, guys. Well, that and cold beer. Smart and chic at the same time. It's a win-win!

Oh, and don't beat yourself up! Sure, you waited 'til the last minute, but it's okay! It's not your fault! October has been a crazy busy month! But hopefully now you'll be all set to entertain in style. Know anyone else who has waited 'til the last minute to start planning the party they're hosting tonight? Be sure to share this post with them! Halloween help is here and it's not too late to add a bit of flair to your spooky soiree. And remember, sometimes the simplest ideas are the best!

Pumpkin turned wine cooler? Seriously, I must try this now!


Southern belles (born in GA) love monogrammed anything, glad to see I'm not alone on this ;)

I might just have to monogram one of those pumpkins we grew, mine are just sitting there, too! I got a laugh about the full-size bars & running out of candy- sounds like our neighborhoods might be similar! Have a great Halloween!

This palette is truly perfect - love the stripes, lace, and the fun you can have with patterns when you stick to these colors. And like you said - no worries about matching, and no worries of color scheme remorse - just a super chic wedding that will be remembered as such!

lkjkhg My name is Camille bruno Valdez my partner and I have been trying for a baby for over two years now, We were going to a fertility clinic for about 5 months before somebody told us to contact this spell caster who is so powerful, We contacted him at this email; arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com , for him to help us, then we told him our problem, he told us that we will either conceive in February 2014 or March 2014,but after two years of trying we were at a point where we were willing to try anything. And I'm glad we came to Dr Dahiru, Because his pregnancy spell cast put us at ease, and I honestly believe him, and his gods really helped us as well, I am thankful for all he has done. contact him via email: arewaspecialistttemple@gmail.com if you are trying to get a baby or want your lover back. he has powers to do it, he has done mine,
