It is always difficult to come up with fresh ideas year in and year out for your Halloween party therefore we will try and give you some tips for your party this year. Remember you can never start too soon so even though it is not the 31st October yet, start planning for your party as soon as you can so that you will be fully prepared by the time the party is at hand.
If you have a limited budget then you can make many of the decorations and accessories at home and only buy or hire essentials to make your party successful.
When you plan your party beware of all the hazards involved when you light the candles in the hollowed out pumpkins, make sure that they are placed well away from the reach of small children and that there are no flammable materials close to the candles.
One of the first decisions you need to make is what theme you want your Halloween party to be. If you do not have children then you can go for an adult theme like The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Moulin Rouge or a sexy outfit theme, there are so many themes to choose from, just make a decision and advise your guests when you invite them.
If you have toddlers it will be better to cater just for toddlers and their parents and then you could either have an open theme where all the young guests may arrive wearing any costume they choose or you may have a set theme where you state that it will be an Alice in Wonderland theme or Peter Pan or Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, etc. This may be done when you send out the invitations so that the parents of your guests will know well in advance what is expected.
Once you have chosen the theme then you need to organize the décor so that your house or apartment sets the scene for the party and will create the correct atmosphere for your guests.
There are so many different decorations you can make, or buy or hire and depending on your budget and the type of party you are having, you may either encourage your youngsters to help with homemade decorations or if it is an adult party then invite your girlfriends for drinks and a decoration design and decoration making evening, which is much more fun than just going out and buying decorations.
Make sure that you buy your pumpkins well ahead of time so that you may hollow them out and decorate them according to your party theme. Of course you can also buy the imitation pumpkins and use them again in future when you have another party.
Choose the music for your Halloween party and transfer the songs onto your flash drive or mp3 player so that you have the right music for the occasion. If you arrange your music in this way you do not have to hire a DJ as you can play the music in random order through your own sound system. If you have a set theme party then ensure that your music matches your theme.
Decide on all the party games and party favours you are going to have and ensure that you have everything available on the night of your party. To get ideas for the games browse the web and pick those you feel is suitable for your party theme.
