Need some Halloween party ideas for the kids? Have we got some brilliant ones for you from the minds of Marissa and Kelsey of House Of Fete. These two have a serious love of color and incorporated it into a little rainBOO Halloween party. It’s ALL good but just wait until you see the creepy and colorful ombré Halloween candy charcuterie board…inside the bones of a rainbow skeleton! WE KNOW. You truly need to see it to believe it.
The inspiration started when Marissa envisioned our kids sitting inside cauldrons that bubbled up in rainbow order. The concept took off from there. “Somewhere over the rainBOO,” there is a giant candy charcuterie, potion bubbles made of balloons, and cake layered with rainbow frosting. Giving the kids a Halloween to remember – even if they aren’t going door to door – was our goal, and I think we achieved that. It was so much fun to take the colors of the rainbow and make it fit perfectly into the spooky season.
While the kids reveled in all the color + treats, Janea Greene Creative captured the photos!
There go the guests of honor!
Colorful Halloween Party Ideas
How do you incorporate color into a Halloween party? Let’s start with this invitation created by Itsy Bitsy Parties — it’s a rainbow cauldron!
The vision comes to life! Bijoux Balloons bubbled up the rainbow balloons and added a few outside the cauldrons, too. How cute are the kiddos in their colorful outfits?!
Before we dig into the details, have a look at the whole setup – complete with a “witches broom” bench adorned with dried florals!
Rainbow Skeleton Halloween Candy Charcuterie Board
Have you ever seen a candy charcuterie board like this?! The ladies went above and beyond with rainbow dyed table runners and place settings. But it’s that painted skeleton filled with sweets, cookies, and candies that gets the JAW DROP.
Danville Cheese packed those ribs full with all kinds of goodies.
And you can’t have a Halloween party without pumpkins! These colorful cuties were propped up on the opposite side of the broom bench.
Dried Rainbow Florals and all the Treats
Behind the table, the ladies styled a gorgeous vintage dresser that was refinished for the party. Dried flowers by Busy Bees Floral spilled out of the drawers and atop the dresser sat a rainbow of cake stands, each filled with something colorful and spooky.
Proof that “color” and “spooky” can totally be friends!
The two-layer rainbow cake was covered with vertical fondant ribbons and tiny bats on top — a show-stopper by Caramela by Ines.
A second cake by Danville Cheese was a little something for to the adults — a brie charcuterie cake!
(PS: If you want a second party that’s a little more adult and a little less color – ha! – here’s How to Throw a Black + White Halloween Dinner Party!)
You think these kids had the best Halloween party ever? We’re willing to bet YES.
And the adults had fun, too!

Here’s to a Halloween like no other!
