How to Throw a Halloween Tea Party

The first thing you want to have for your party this Halloween will be pumpkins galore.  Small pumpkns or large pumpkins are a great go-to item to decorate, carve, and eat!

Next, when you are throwing a halloween tea party, you will want to think of what kind of tea you want to serve of course.  Here are a few ideas for teas or tea alternatives for your halloween party:

Tea Bags

If you want to go for the “real deal” have a variety of tea bags for guests to choose. 

Black Tea

This black tea just goes with a Halloween party!  Black tea, black cats, black spiders – totally goes with the theme.  However, youngsters might not like the flavor, so we do have some tea alternatives below as well.

Pumpkin Spice Tea

If you are going with more of a pumpkin themed party, the pumpkin spice tea will be the way to go!

Tea with Cinnamon and Pumpkin Spice Added

Bring on the fall vibes with this cinnamon and pumpkin spice!.  Start with a plain green or black tea, then add your own spices.

Tea with Honey

Traditional tea with honey is a great tea for most occasions.

Tea Alternatives:

Apple Cider

The perfect fall vibes are happening with apple cider.  Warm the apple cider to enhance the flavors.

Hot Chocolate

Always a crowd pleaser – hot chocolate!  No explanation needed!

It is also fun to think of names for your tea.  My favorite name is a “witch’s brew” tea.

The third major item that you will want to think about is the halloween menu.  The party food is something to which your guests will be looking forward.  The best part of a halloween party is creating original food items that will be spooky and fun.  

Since it is a Halloween party, guests will be expecting to find “finger sandwiches” and something sweet such as cupcakes with their tea as well.

Picking the Food for a Halloween Tea Party

Let’s face it, the food is pretty much the star of the show of most parties.  When it comes to kids, they want to know “what are we eating?” or “when are we eating?”  Every mom knows these questions quite familiarly. 

The best part about a Halloween party is that you can get creative with lots of different food items for your Halloween tea party.  

Starting with appetizers before the tea, the tea itself, tea sandwiches, fruit or vegetables to pari, and finally the cookies and/or cupcake dessert options.

Now that you have the basic outline for what to serve, let’s get into the details of an actual menu.  Speaking of menu, be sure to create unique names for food items that go along with the Halloween theme.  

It can be a plain old everyday food item, but if you give it a spooky name, it can be a total game changer!

Every Halloween tea party needs a good Halloween party name.  Find 100 Halloween Party Name Ideas here.
