Halloween is for tricks and treats… and partying!
If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year and want to ensure your party creates the right impression to wow your guests you’ll want to forget the traditional spider webs and leave bobbing the apples for the kids. Here are our top 10 tips to ensure that your Halloween party creates a spook-tacular impression.
★ Focus on the little details and set the tone from the beginning including your invitations. Who could resist this RSVP “we’re DYING to hear from you”?!
★ Pick a theme. Go Gothic. Draw inspiration from Twilight Movies and encourage guests to be dark and beautiful and paint everything in flat black.
★ What about a literary theme – do as Nearless Headless Nick does in Harry Potter and host a ‘deathday’ party complete with black drapes, lots of candles, and fake chandeliers accompanied by servings of chocolate frogs and butterbeer.
★ A Halloween party doesn’t have to be a traditional costume party. Add some glamour to your party by hosting a Masquerade Ball; think 50 shades of grey.
★ Every party needs music. Your playlist of Halloween-themed music can be as traditional as “Thriller” or “Monster Mash” or be based on soundtracks like “Phantom of the Opera”. Have some sound effects up your sleeve; a well-placed scream can make the night.
★ Pumpkins are a Halloween essential however they don’t have to be carved or plain orange. Miniature ghost pumpkins can become downright glamorous with a touch of gold spray paint.
★ Lighting, such as candles, is an easy and effective away to transform any space and create a dramatic atmosphere.
★ Get creative with your colour scheme. Who says everything must be black, orange, green and purple? Try gold, silver and white for Halloween.
★ Book some entertainment that goes bump in the night. What about hiring a psychic medium, tarot-card reader or palm reader for your guests, and conduct a séance before the evening’s over? If you’ve hired a large venue for your Halloween party you need something to fill the space so what about an aerial spider acrobat to thrill your guests?
★ Get creative with your food and beverage. Poison black candy apples and vampire blood cocktails will add a touch of drama to your evening.
