Today is the day that I get to share an Easy DIY Terminus Walking Dead Party! We’re die-hard fans of the Walking Dead series and have been eagerly waiting for the October 23 premiere. And since my kids are too old for trick-or-treating, we’ve decided to do a Walking Dead party to celebrate the October season.
Since I like one-stop shopping, I headed to one of the best online places to shop for party supplies, Oriental Trading. I was easily able to find everything I needed for a Walking Dead party by typing in “zombies” into their search box and looking through their party tableware section.
To throw this party, these are the items I chose from Oriental Trading –
- Zombie Party Tablecloth
- Zombie Party Luncheon Napkins
- Personalized Small Zombie Party Vinyl Banner
- Zombie Table Decorations
- Zombie Party Dessert Plates
- Red Dinner Plates
- Red Cups
- Cutt-off Ear – used to create Daryl’s zombie ear necklace for wall decor
- Gumball Eyes – placed in jar
- Gummy Eyeballs – used in Bloodshot Eyeball Cupcakes
Terminus Walking Dead Party Set-up
If you’re a Walking Dead fan, you’ll understand the custom Oriental Trade banner. If you don’t watch the show, let’s just say that the people in Terminus were cannibals and would lure people in with the promise of a place of sanctuary, only to butcher and eat them – gross! So the sign, bloody tablecloth, napkins, and red plates/cups totally set the perfect atmosphere for a place of dining horror, don’t you think?
And since this is a Walking Dead party, I HAD to add zombie elements. The zombie cut-outs, zombie dessert plates, and Daryl’s Zombie ear necklace (made with five ears glued to twine) made perfect additions to the party table. Last, I created Terminus food to mimic a feast made from humans – ribs, Jell-O brain mold, giant femur bones , blood punch, and bloodshot eyeball cupcakes.
I can’t even tell you how much I enjoyed putting this party together. I loved the way this party turned out and plan on making this an annual party for every fall Walking Dead season premiere!
