As Halloween creeps closer and closer, the leaves turn beautiful shades of orange and red outside, and your children are combing the shelves for the perfect Halloween costume, you are probably preparing for a spooky Halloween party of your own! Here are some tips to make your Halloween party extra-spooky and extra-fun, whether it’s for four-year-olds or forty-year-olds.
Keep it Simple
Halloween is an easy time to host a party because there is already an accepted and simple color palette for decorations. You don’t have to stick to only orange and black (unless those are your favorite Halloween party colors), so feel free to experiment with other color palettes like black and white, black and red, or even gold and orange. Party stores have supplies available in countless colors for the fall and Halloween season, so don’t feel stuck to the standards unless you want to be.
Don’t Forget the Mood Lighting
Lighting is a great way to transform a space from welcoming to welcoming-but-spooky. Instead of putting up animated skeletons or scary blood and cobwebs, use the lighting to convey a mysterious and spooky atmosphere. Turn off your overhead dinner lighting and instead use candelabras and old school candles to create atmosphere. For a younger or safer party, use LED tea lights in lanterns to set the atmosphere.
Leave the Clean-Up to Someone Else
Halloween is a wonderful time for hosting parties, but also during one of the busiest times of the year. School is in full swing for your little ghouls and goblins, work is busy as you prepare for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and the last thing you’ll want to do after a fun night is worry about taking down the spiderwebs. Hiring a professional cleaning service to take care of your after-party clean-up is a great way to make sure your party is spooky and fun for everyone involved.
