So far this week I've shown you how my whole spooky colorful Halloween party came together, from the initial plants, to the event, to a simple DIY project. My favorite part of putting the whole thing together might have been thinking about the decorations, so today I'm laying it all out there! Here's everything you need to get the look of my party.

1. Spooky black and white vegetable posters

The walls of my living room are normally adorned with a giant poster of a pink grapefruit rind and personal photos. These things have no purpose being in a Halloween party. I wanted to cover the blank walls in cheap DIY posters like Faith made for her Mother's Day Gathering. Going along with the food costumes, I made black and white spooky vegetable posters and then added glow in the dark googly eyes to each poster.

Follow the easy instructions below and you'll have your very own creepy posters for Halloween!

2. Big colorful lights

Jordan of Oh Happy Day recently started her own company called Bright Lab, and I immediately fell in love with all the beautiful, colorful lights. After the party I could't take them down – they might have just become a staple in my living room.

4. Balloons

Originally I wanted to make LED lit-up balloons that looked kind of like this. I wanted to string them against the wall as people entered my apartment. I bought some LED lights on Amazon as well as large primary color balloons, but when I put the LED lights inside the balloons you just couldn't see them.

So instead I decided to hang the balloons on the ceiling for a different look! I thought it made my apartment look a little more party-like.
