Move over Hot Girl Summer, Hot Ghoul Halloween is here. We’re creepin’ it real with the best Halloween brunch ideas. We partnered with CV Linens to create a chic, purple, black, blush and gold tablescape. We decorated our table with spiders, skeletons and ghosts and even made a char-booterie board. With our stylish tips, you can host a spooktacular Halloween brunch at home.
Select a Halloween Brunch Theme
You better work, witch. Because of Covid-19, we are still keeping our celebrations at home small. You can make a small party fantastic with a theme and some Twinspiration. A theme helps inspire the color palette, food, decorations and drinks. In the past we hosted:
- Dia de los Muertos Dinner
- Dia de Los Muerto Brunch
- Black, Silver and Purple Halloween Brunch
- Black, Silver and Purple Drink in Peace Dinner
- Monster Mash
- Orange, Black and White Dinner
- MacBeth Themed Dinner
Create a Ghoulish Halloween Brunch Tablescape
Where my ghouls at? Our stylish Halloween brunch tablescape featured shades of purple, black, blush and gold. We draped black spandex curtains behind the dining table. You’ll need two curtains for a 6-foot table. Make sure to clip them together in the back to connect them. We layered a black cheesecloth table runner over a crisp white tablecloth.
Bad to the bone. The star of the tablescape was our floral centerpiece, which featured black, blush and liliac foam roses and a Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Garland. We used hot glue to combine the floral foam together. Next we draped the garland on the foam. Then we added foam roses, pampas grass as well as pink, purple, black and white feathers. We added a tombstone and a black tree behind the centerpiece. Most of these decorations are from CV Linens. We also scattered black skulls, gold lanterns, mini white pumpkins, purple votives, black candles in mini cauldron candle holders, black cat confetti and large and mini spiders on the table.
Let’s get spooky. Each place setting featured a gold charger plate, black and gold plates with matching black and gold cutlery. These plates and cutlery are stunning. Our guests couldn’t believe they are plastic and disposable. Sign us up for anything that helps make cleanup easier. We also added a skeleton treat box with Halloween candy as a party favor.
Make Delicious Halloween Brunch Cocktails with Empress Gin
Ghouls just wanna have fun. We made a French 75 with Empress Gin and rosemary simple syrup. This gin gets its all natural purple hue from the butterfly pea blossom. We made a Pear and Rosemary Empress Gin Cocktail earlier this summer and knew this spirit would be perfect for our Halloween Brunch.
Look at the gorgeous color of this Halloween brunch cocktail. If you’ve got it, haunt it. P.S. Empress Gin is fantastic. If purple is ever in your color palette, create a specialty cocktail with Empress Gin. No food coloring required.
Serve Delicious Halloween Brunch Bites
No tricks. All treats. We made a char-booterie board with Halloween sugar cookies, pumpkin goat cheese, sharp cheddar, a coffin shaped Brie, crackers, baguette, blackberries and raspberries and walnuts. We added mini pumpkins and spiders for a spooky touch.
I’m here for the boos. We also served mini bagels with scream cheese. For an extra haunted touch, we used cheese knives and serving spoons made of skeleton bones.
Love at first bite. We also made pumpkin bread with a blackberry glaze. We used a Trader’s Joes Pumpkin bread mix but added chopped walnuts and blackberries to the mix. It was a gourd-geous.
We hope you have a bloody good time this Halloween. This Halloween brunch is easy to host and will make you the ghostess with the mostess. Happy haunting!

This was such a fun brunch!! The table looked amazing and the Empress Gin cocktail was delicious! I’m not usually a Gin drinker but it was beautiful and refreshing at the same time! Looking forward to trying it again at home now that I have the recipe.
The tablescape looks absolutely stunning and perfect for a Halloween-themed gathering. Have to give the pumpkin bread with a blackberry glaze a try.

What a cute and spooky spread for Halloween. I am inspired to use your ideas and may be copy some of your set up. 😉
I have actually never thought of having a Halloween brunch. It’s a cute idea and your decorations and fun foods look fabulous.
I would definitely choose something this colourful over the usual black and orange colour scheme. The rosemary syrup sounds really intriguing, I have never tried anything like that, it must be delicious.
