I loved designing this green, blue, and yellow party table for our amazing Halloween Spooky Lab Party! Kid friendly and colorful, this theme is perfect for anyone who wants to throw a Halloween bash that will delight your guests (rather than cause a fright).
Not only did I run with the color scheme, I included many “mad scientist” touches, like a bubbling dry ice centerpiece and “beakers” filled with candy and lollipops. Plus, our Halloween Spooky Lab Invitations and Party Favors made the table “come alive”! Take a look at all my table close-ups below, and don’t forget to check out our Mad Scientist Laboratory Halloween Ideas for more spooky inspiration!
From the ceiling to the floor, a lab theme party should be all about color! I layered yellow, green, and blue table covers as an easy and eye-catching way to dress up the table. And guests couldn't help but be drawn to my colorful backdrop. I hung easy-to-make confetti garlands in the theme's colors over a bright green table cover. A bunch of clear and white balloon "bubbles" rising from my smoking blue beaker centerpiece finished off my mad scientist laboratory look!
My party table was all about bright colors, creepy desserts and candy favors! Eye-popping Halloween Lab Lollipops burst out out of green and yellow "beakers" topped with white foam (just Halloween spider webs). Guests grabbed these fun favors as they passed by.
I personalized our Halloween Lab Theme Candy Bar Wrappers with a message for our guests! And organizing all of the treats in neat rows (just like these candy bars) and displaying them on clear or white trays, gave the table a "scientific" look that carried the theme well. The neatness only lasted until guests helped themselves to all the delicious goodies, however!
It's Aliiiiiivvvveeeee! Every good mad scientist needs a few brains around the lab, so I cooked up these goofy cupcakes for guests to enjoy throughout the night. Even as a (very) amateur baker, I found these desserts easy and fun to make. Family and friends couldn't help asking for some more braaaaaiiiinzzzz!
It was easy to make our drinks match our party theme by wrapping a Halloween Lab Water Bottle Label around each one.
On one side of the bottle we warned guests about the potential safety of our lab water, and on the other was our little Frankenstein friend.
I paid homage to everyone's favorite lab-created monster with these easy-to-make Frankenstein pudding cups. Green colored vanilla pudding and crushed Oreos was all I needed to make this tasty treat. (Notice the bubbling fog from my beaker centerpiece in the background? Awesome!)
The undeniable highlight of the party was the bubbling and boiling beaker centerpiece! I filled a large glass jar 3/4 of the way with warm water and mixed in blue food coloring. By adding just a few chunks of dry ice, I had a boiling beaker that spilled a delightful fog over the table! Don't forget to keep adding dry ice and warm water throughout the party to keep up this great look.
What did guests do with all of their delicious treats? They put candy bars and other goodies in Halloween Lab Party Favor Bags I had lined up on the table. There was even a cute message from the hosts on the personalized label.
Give your guests something with which to fill their favor bags! I piled yellow, green, and blue candies into small beaker shaped jars. I used Mike & Ikes and sour ropes, but pixie sticks, gum balls, pops rocks, and rock candy would be other great options, too.
The decorations didn't stop at the table top. The balloon "bubbles" added height to my centerpiece and coordinated well with my garland backdrop. Heavy cardstock, a round paper punch, and a sewing machine were all I needed to make the colorful garlands.
I loved all the little details about this party, too. From the DIY "measurements" on the lollipop beaker stands to the yellow, green and blue confetti scattered on the table, everything came together in one eye-popping statement!
