Witches Brew Cupcakes

3 / 15


For a sweet treat that is just as terrifying as it is tasty, these Witches Brew Cupcakes by House of Yumm are made to resemble a bubbling pot of green bubbly witch’s brew, and we are so obsessed. Grab your favorite chocolate cupcake recipe and pile on the extremely light and fluffy frosting before adding on different sized sprinkles and gumballs to create the wicked looking bubbles!

A Virgin Lit The Candle

Black Flame Candle

4 / 15


Perhaps one of the most fate-altering candles of Max, Dani, & Allison’s lives—the infamous Black Flame Candle will be the highlight of your party. Legend says that it will raise the spirits of the dead when lit by a virgin on Halloween night, however we can’t guarantee that it will bring the Sanderson Sisters back from the dead, but rather, it will ignite the warm smells of white carnation, sandalwood, black rose, smoky wood, and a kiss of patchouli upon your party guests. It may be made from the fat of a hanged man, but we’ll refrain from sharing that part with our party-goers.

To buy: Black Flame Candle, Etsy, $9

I’ll Take Thee Away…

Come Little Children Sign

5 / 15


Add some more Hocus Pocus-inspired decor to your porch or fireplace mantle with this handmade walnut sign, proclaiming the song title made famous by the 1993 film. Just as Sarah Sanderson flew over the town of Salem luring the children to their subsequent death, you will attract your party guests just the same… but to an endless array of delicious food and cocktails, of course.

To buy: Come Little Children Sign, Etsy, $16

Wicked Wafers

Witches Hat Cookies

6 / 15


These witches hat cookies by Adventures in the Anderl House are almost too cute to eat! Almost. Only requiring three components, you’ll use a fudge-striped cookie as your base, topping with a touch of frosting and a Hershey’s kiss. Simple, delicious, and soon to be a party favorite among your guests—these cookies would definitely be amok amok amok!

Treat Table (No Tricks Necessary)

Witches Cauldrons

7 / 15


For an incredibly easy way to witch up your tablescape, head down to your nearest Halloween store and pick up different sized witches cauldrons for the ideal serving bowls to hold all your frightful finger foods. Getting different sized bowls will offer more variety to accommodate your different types of snacks, while your table will be completely enchanted by the perfect Halloween vibes of a Hocus Pocus-themed get together.

Boots & Broomsticks

Witches Hooks

8 / 15


For another witchy decor idea, build your own broomstick station by hanging hats and cloaks off of wall hooks. Add on some straw witches brooms (bonus points if they’re sparkly), and you’re all set! It will look just like the Sanderson Sisters stopped by to hang up their hats, but for an added touch of Hocus Pocus flair be sure to roll out your vacuum cleaner to channel the broomstick flying of the future.

Halloween Appetizers

These unnerving little snacks by The Small Things may seem morbid, but man are they tasty!
