Traditional Halloween colors are orange and black with purple and green accents, much like the classic jack-o-lantern and the bats and the purple witches’ hats. Get your black and purple balloons ready, and decorate your geometric arches with them and with orange sheer voile or taffeta fabric rolls.

For tablecloths, you may use a black polyester tablecloth with a deep plum lamour satin table overlay. If you want to add a little sparkle, you may use a purple glitz sequin table overlay.

Black and white parties are a popular choice for elegant occasions. This color scheme is easy to decorate and can easily transition into fall farmhouse decor. One of the best thing about black and white decorations is that they are incredibly versatile, you can use them again for any other celebration, and easily coordinate with a huge variety of color schemes and celebration themes.

Start with stripe-pattern tablecloths, and white cake stands. You may also opt for white candles and black candelabras. White sheer voile ceiling drapes are also perfect for evening Halloween parties. Match them with warm-toned LED lights and candles for a dramatic effect. These warm-toned lights will complement the neutral vibe of your black and white Halloween party.
