Halloween is great fun for people of all ages, particularly if you really embrace the event and host a party. In our latest guest blog post, Sally Hodge, director at Bubblegum Balloons, shares her tips on how to make the most of the spooky festivities.
Halloween is one of the most exciting events of the year, especially for children.
Whether you’re throwing a spooky shindig or simply dressing your home for trick or treating, here’s a few tips on decorating and throwing the ultimate Halloween party.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without pumpkin carving. Get some inspiration for a scary face from Pinterest or paint them as an alternative. Put candles inside and place then by the front door or around the house for the perfect Halloween accessory.
The kids will love turning your home into a haunted house. Hang fake spiders, creepy crawlies and cobwebs, and keep young ones busy by making creepy ‘Beware’ and ‘haunted house’ signs.
Sweets are a must if you want to win over little ones. Provide plastic buckets decorated with spooky stickers for kids to take their haul home with them.
Conjure up a kid friendly punch to keep them refreshed. Serve in a punch bowl surrounded by creepy crawlies and cobwebs, and draw their attention with Halloween-themed helium balloons.
Game for a laugh
A party isn’t a party without games. Kids will love a Halloween-themed party game of pass the parcel – use spooky wrapping paper and small gifts hidden in each layer. Apple bobbing is a time honoured tradition at this time of year, and pass the balloon is a firm favourite all year round.
