Halloween Decor and Party Tips

Halloween is one of my favourite holidays as we celebrate the end of the harvest and welcome the darker half of the season, yes, shorter days, longer nights.  I also love hosting and going to a Halloween party.  Smokes machines, music, goolish snacks and drinks…Below you’ll find some of my favourite items for Halloween decoration when it comes to hosting.  
5 Tips for a Halloween Party:

1. Start with a spooktacular invite. You can find something online or make your own for a special old school touch.

2. Decor – pumpkins, skulls, witches and ghosts, oh my!  These hanging animated talking skeleton ghosts are awesome!

3. Lighting- dimmed lights and candles always set the mood and little-LED lights to have on the table, or hang on the wall.

4. Music- eery Halloween music as you welcome guests to your home and once the party is rolling you can’t go wrong with Halloween classics!

5. Food!  Goolish food is a must.  For some delicious ideas check out these cookbooks and you can always cater 😉

    I love that checked table runner! We always had a big Halloween party for friends and family and I know that these decor items would be great to have in my home.

    Decorating for Halloween is so much fun! My daughter was so afraid of one of those animated decorations, The Creeper, that for months after Halloween she still asked me where it was, as if it might be lurking someplace ready to scare her again.

    I need #3 in my life. Okay need is a strong word, I want one, lol. I’m feeling boring right now because I haven’t decorated for Halloween since the kids grew up and flew the coop. I think you just reminded me of how excited I used to be at Halloween. I’m suddenly feeling nostalgic. We always had a BIG party. I’m going to decorate this year. I won’t be in my new place before Halloween but next year, I’ll throw a party. There that’s settled.

    I kind of want the Witches Brew glasses all year long! I love Halloween decorations and I see a few I need to snag from here!

    • Mama Ash | 11th Oct 17

      I could use it all year long too 😉

    These are some great ideas for enjoying the Halloween season. Reminds me we need to get a teal pumpkin to support the kids with food allergy who are out trick or treating.
