Halloween is the best holiday for coming up with original party themes and decorations. The typical color palette is black and white I love the dramatic nature of these holiday decorations (as you’ve seen in my other Halloween stylings) not everyone wants to turn their home into a scene from a horror movie, right? With that in mind, I came up with an alternative decor idea: A ghost bar with a DIY Table runner and neon toxic drinks. This way, you can stay on the ‘white’ side and still spook your guests out! How does that sound? Let me show you how fast and easy it is!
To make a DIY table runner for your ghost bar you will need:
- A white/black rectangular piece of fabric. (Use a piece of from something you no longer need, such as an old sheet.)
- Granite spray paint in white and black to create a speckled pattern.
Simply spread out the fabric and spray paint one end of the runner with black speckled paint, and the other end with white. Overlap the two colors in the middle to create a ombre effect. Then wait for it to dry.
Now it’s time to make some poisonous-looking drinks for your guests!
The trick to make your drinks look toxic is to add a drop of neon food coloring (liquid or powder, either will work fine), which will stay on the surface of the drink unless you stir it. You can try different colors with different drinks. I added fluorescent pink to a gin and tonic and topped it with a green herbs. You can use for example rosemary — just make sure the herbs are not really poisonous!
Looks tempting? Think twice before you drink it!
