Trick or Lattes Party! A latte bar for parents on Halloween night. I love coffee. There is just nothing better for me. I start my day with a coffee and often enjoy a latte later in the day as well. I am so excited to share my fall inspired latte bar with you today. This concept is simple.

On Halloween (or any day, really), you include a latte bar as a part of your Trick or Treating fun. Kids can Trick or Treat. Parents can Trick or Latte! Offering something special to the parents is fun and helps create community.

Trick or Lattes partyToday I’m sharing how I created this fun and fabulous latte party, latte bar and create-your-own mug station for the parents on Halloween how you can pull this party together too!

Trick or Lattes partyParty Setup Steps

  1. Create a backdrop. I used a white roll of paper and attached two simple and fun posters.  Trick or Treat Here. But First Lattes! I designed the posters and they are available as free printable posters right here. :)

  2. Plan your decorations. I kept things black, white and yellow. I used yellow to-go cups for the lattes. I placed chalkboard stickers on each one with a pumpkin sticker for fun. The chalkboard stickers were perfect for my guests to write their names and avoid any confusion about who the cup belonged to. I added texture with a black and white plaid throw blanket we own. I love using blankets on my tablescapes.

  3. Plan your menu. I kept it simple. Lattes are delicious and more than enough for most parents, but I added some pumpkin spice bundt cake and pumpkin shaped chocolates for extra fun.

  4. Plan an activity or two. I put together a simple create-your-own-mug station using some adorable latte and coffee stamps with a permanent ink pad. I picked up inexpensive white mugs for $1 each which were the perfect option. I’m sharing this DIY project in more detail below. It’s easy and fun!

  5. Say “thanks” with party favors. This is definitely unnecessary, but if you’re like me and enjoy giving a little something, why not give your guests a latte?!I filled white bags with Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cups® and a chocolate wafer. I wrapped the bag in black and gold baker’s twine with a homemade tag using the fun stamps from the mug station. :) I also had each guest take home a mug.

And of course, set up your latte bar. Latte bars are SO fun! I used Starbucks® Caffé Latte K-Cup® pods, salted caramel sauce, whipped cream, sprinkles and chocolate candies for our bar. You can make as detailed or simple as you want and I guarantee that all of your latte loving friends will appreciate it!
