This is entirely up to you, but here are some suggestions! You can adjust the quantity based on the size of your group.

What I love about food boards is that there is no right or wrong way to set it up! Here are my favorite tips that work for me:

  1. Start with the biggest items (such as the cauldron)
  2. Add the popcorn bags on the outside so all the treats stay in the middle
  3. Have fun!

Here’s a Quick Video Tutorial!

Perfect Presentation Platters

Cauldron and Jack o’ Lantern Bags: How cute is this Hocus Pocus cauldron from Walmart? If you’d prefer a plain black cauldron, you could also go with this option from Amazon. Those cute orange pumpkin bags also double as decor and popcorn holders! If you’re looking for a Popcorn Maker, Walmart has a great option!

Wooden Serving Boards: If you’d like a large rectangular wooden tray like mine, this wooden version from Target is fantastic, as well as this beautiful choice from Etsy. Additionally, this large rectangular board from Etsy is also beautiful.

Round Trays: If you’d prefer a round tray, I’d recommend this round wooden Target tray, which I get so much use out of year-round! For a higher-end round tray, I love my MacKenzie-Childs checkered party tray. If you’d prefer some glitz, you could also go with this Gold Metal Party Tray from Walmart for a smaller gathering.

Kitchen Links: I get asked all the time about the products in the background of my kitchen. Much of it is from MacKenzie-Childs, which I have slowly grown a collection of over the years! My favorites are this checkered chopping board, my black and white checkered teapot, and the gray and white checkered utensil holder. I also have this enamel canister that you can find in smallmedium, or large.

For the Halloween decor items, the cute Jack-O’-Lantern platter is from Pottery Barn and the Haunted House Candy Jar is MacKenzie-Childs.

Can I Prep This Halloween Movie Night Board Ahead of Time?

This takes only a few minutes to prep, so I’d hold off until a couple hours before serving so the candy doesn’t taste stale. However, you can get a head start by washing the cauldron and setting out the popcorn bags to save time!

Storing Leftovers

My favorite tip is to save the boxes for candy, so you can just pop any leftovers back in the boxes and save for later. Or you can store leftover Halloween Movie Night Board goodies in Ziploc bags!
