Top Tips For a Spooktacular Halloween PartyPosted: 18th October 2011 Category: Create your own projects By: jogaskin
Top Tips For a Spooktacular Halloween Party
Halloween is a time of year that can be as fun for adults as it is for children, and it’s a great opportunity to get the whole family involved in craft activities. There are many ways to incorporate a spooky theme into your party decorations. Follow these tips to bring your Halloween party to life.
Even if it is just a small family party, letting children design invitations will help them get in the Halloween spirit. If they are inviting friends, why not include a dress code and adapt the language to suit the spooky theme? For example, “Come to my ghostly party if you dare!”
Perfect for any occasion, bunting is a popular decoration that can add an impressive touch to any room. Use fall colours such as brown, orange and black and include pumpkins, bats, witches, ghosts and other spooky images to add some character to the room.
3. Eye Masks
Whether you decide to dress up or not, an eye mask is a simple accessory to add to an outfit. It can add an air of mystery to a costume and could also be incorporated into some party games such as pin the nose on the pumpkin or a monster hunt hide and seek.
Even the food choices can have a spooky twist and add to the enjoyment. Use a play on words to describe the food and drink. For instance, a fruit punch can be labelled as ‘swamp juice’, jelly as ‘brains’ and spaghetti as ‘worms’. Embrace the theme and let your imagination run wild!
5. Cupcake Wrappers and Toppers
Once you’ve made your spooky treats, the Halloween theme can continue with how they are displayed. Cupcake wrappers and toppers can make a delicious treat look even more irresistible and also make homemade cakes look very professional.
6. Gift Bags
Give your children and their friends some treats to take away with them after the party has finished, reminding them of the great time they had. Fill a gift bag with badges, stickers, tattoo transfers, stationery and sweets all in the Halloween theme.
All of these items and much more can be created using CraftArtist Platinum – buy yours now from the DaisyTrail shop!
