Halloween kitchenware ideas for a spooky party

Need help preparing for Halloween? Let’s get you all set for a thriller night with these fabulous party essentials.

If you are hosting a spooky party this year, you might be looking for Halloween-themed kitchenware to either cook, bake or serve your guests some delicious treats.

We’ve gathered some of our favourite ideas with a spooky feel. Let’s explore our edit of Halloween kitchenware, shall we?

Halloween kitchenware for scary baking

Spooky baking is one of the best things about Halloween. We have previously done a Halloween-themed Bake Off in the office, and it was such good fun seeing what everyone came up with. Picture spider-topped muffins, pumpkin bread and skull-shaped cakes.

So we highly encourage getting creative with the help of baking moulds in all sorts of shapes and sizes. They will make your life much easier – simply pour your batter into a scary-shaped pan, and your sweet treats are done.

Spooky drinks

Fancy a drink? You can go for Halloween-themed drinks and cocktails – although personally, I am not brave enough to try a Zombie Brain shot – or you can serve classic drinks in spooky glasses.

Novelty shot glasses and tumblers or statement wine glasses that even Morticia Addams would approve of are ideal.

Pumpkin-themed solutions

For me, the best bit about Halloween is spotting pumpkins everywhere you look. So for a dinner party, soup is a brilliant idea as it can be prepared ahead of time and easily warmed up when your guests get to the party.

Pumpkin-themed kitchenware is also easy to find – you can bake savoury meals in pumpkin-shaped dishes, blend ingredients in vibrant orange blenders and then serve your treats in seasonal bowls.
