If you want guests to dress to follow the theme, they can wear costumes that are literal characters like angels, devils, or even the grim reaper.

Or if you want people to be a little more creative, ask them to wear costumes representing vices or other behaviors that bring out their inner demon…and could get them sent to hell 🙂

Fallen angels and devils party decor

I used a lot of red and black party decorations to represent the devil’s lair Halloween theme.

The entrance

To welcome guests and make a statement, I hung an 8 foot devil in the entrance and had him holding a custom-made banner* that let everyone know what the theme was.

Red walls

Red foil curtains and red curtains add to the devil decor

When I was decorating my party, I was trying to make it feel like a devil’s lair.

But my living room has blue walls. A little too “zen” for that concept.

So I hung red foil curtains to cover all the walls.

The ones I bought had tape on the top so they were really easy to put up.

And not so easy to take down – the adhesive stuck to the walls. And to this day I haven’t been able to get some of it off. So you might want to try something else to put them up with. Double-sided tape or stapling them would probably work.

Black ceiling

I think the single biggest way to make an impact on party decor is to decorate the ceiling.

Since this was a Halloween party, I covered the ceiling in black fabric.

It makes the room darker and adds to the spooky feeling.

Candles are a staple of all of my Halloween parties. They add atmosphere that you just can’t get any other way.

Just be sure they’re in a location that won’t be knocked over.

Red lights

Since the red foil curtains move and reflect light, they give the illusion of fire when the light bounces off them.

I used a disco ball and kaleidoscope spot lights to add moving light which made the flame-like effect even more effective.

You can also replace the light bulbs in lamps and overhead lights with red ones to add to the drama.

Red tablecloths and chair covers

Red tablecloths and chair covers continue the red “devil’s lair” atmosphere.

The consistent color across all of the tables and chairs make them all look like they match. Even when they don’t.

Black chair sashes and a little bling helps to break up all the red.

Red and black feather centerpieces

I like to use feather centerpieces for all of my parties.

They always add drama to the party decor and changing the feather colors means they go with any color scheme.

For this party, I used red and black feathers to go with the devil theme.

Up lights under the vases make them stand out better.

Black and white place settings

To create contrast with all the red, I used white plates on top of these black chargers* and some gray Halloween napkins.

Wrapping black and red feather boas around the bottom of the vase cover the up-light and add some softness to the table.

Fake flames

A devil party wouldn’t feel right without some fire!

I added table-top fake flames* as centerpieces on some of the tables, along with a few hanging flames*.

If you want to go all out, you can also hang tissue “flames” (in yellow, red and orange) from the ceiling.

Black crows and red candles

Since this was a Halloween party, I added some crows on black metal candle trees with red candles to create some spooky-looking decor.

Party cocktails

If you want to have a specialty drink, either red or black is a good match with the theme:

Devil party food

Devil skull cake and cupcakes

Many Halloween parties start after dark, and often do not include dinner, but are great for a sweet table.

This can include different kinds of candies as well as cupcakes, brownies and cake pops (all easy-to-eat individual portions that can also be easily-decorated for Halloween).

Devilish red velvet Halloween cupcakes

The added bonus is that all of these items can be made ahead of time, so you have less stress on the day of the party.
