Who knew flowers could be so spooky? Today, I am bringing this article out of the archives because I love it so much and think these flowers are perfect for a Halloween dinner party! These Halloween paper flowers will take you back to your arts and crafts days! These flowers are super cute, easy to make and won’t break the bank. They also won’t die on you, which is a great thing for all my “black” thumbed hostesses.

These Halloween paper flowers make wonderful decorative items and unique place cards! Be prepared for your dinner guests to want to take their name cards home with them!

 The flowers featured above are made out of silver and spider web wrapping paper and stuck together by double-sided tape! They are super fun to make and will bring a kitschy twist to your Halloween gathering!

Tasty Tip: Roasted Garlic

This Halloween, keep the vampires away by serving roasted garlic! This dish is simple and inexpensive to make for all you dinner party divas on a budget! Place the whole clove on top of some radicchio to add color to the dish. You can also spice up the presentation by putting candy corn flowers around the serving plate as garnish.


1 Head of Garlic

1 teaspoon of olive oil



Peel the head of garlic so that only a thin layer of the skin remains around the cloves. Cut the head of the garlic about 1/4 inch so that the top of each clove is exposed. Pour the olive oil over the top, coating the garlic as much as possible! Wrap it in tin foil and place in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the garlic is soft to the touch! Let cool and serve with crackers!
