The days are getting shorter and the air is getting colder, but don’t mourn the loss of summer! The change in seasons means there are many new exciting things to come, the first of those being Halloween. This spooky autumnal holiday is a Cherryz favourite! No matter how you’re choosing to celebrate, we’ve a skele-ton of helpful tips on how to have a frightfully fun 31st of October. Without further ado, here are our spooktacular Halloween party ideas!
Halloween party decorations
Be the coolest (and creepiest) kids on the block with decorations that will fool any guest into believing they’ve just walked into a real-life haunted house! Before you’ve even thought about the inside, be sure to let passers-by know your home is ready for the Halloween season with some scary window decorations.
We recommend casting a ghastly glow with some glow in the dark pumpkins paired with a creepy door mat to give trick or treaters an eerie welcome! Once your guests are inside, give them a good jump-scare with a fangtastic hanging bat in your hallway or a bone-chilling holographic skeleton. Finish off with some string lights on your walls, doors, or bannister to really take your spooky soiree to the next level!
Top tip: Set up a pumpkin carving station and let guests unleash their creative side! Not only is this a frighteningly fun activity, but you can also line them up outside your home for added spooky points once they’re complete. Make sure there’s a prize for the most killer creation!
Halloween costume ideas
No haunted house is complete without some undead hosts to haunt it. With the right embellishments to your costume, your guests will believe you’ve just risen from the dead! Opt for something silly, eye-catching, or scary! A freaky clown mask is a great way to grab people’s attention. Or, grab some sequinned devil horns or spooky head bopper for a more fuss-free yet fa-boo-lous style! If you’re a little stuck about what costume to wear, just throw on a witches hat and wig and you’ll be good to go.
Halloween party food
Bone appetit! No Halloween party would be complete without a spooky spread that will allow your guests to eat, drink, and be scary! Grab some frighteningly funky bowls, and fill them with some savoury nibbles and sweet goodies. When it comes to drinks, serve up some punch in novelty skull design goblets and shot glasses! Or perhaps mason jars or tumblers are more your style.
Don’t forget to deliver some tricks with your treats by serving them up on a spine-chillingly fun serving platter. For serious spooky points, place some cobweb decoration on your table and watch as the fake spiders nestled within creep up on guests as they help themselves to your frightening feast! As your undead guests depart, be sure to gift them a party bag chock-full of terrifyingly tasty treats!
Trick or treat sweets
Last but by no means least, it’s essential you have those trick or treats goodies on lock. Grab yourself a pumpkin cauldron to place them all in, and then choose an array of wickedly tasty sweeties. Give guests a spooky sour surprise with some Sour Infernal lollies or hit them with some old school classics such as Parma Violets, Swizzels, or chillingly chewy Maoams. In handy mini packets, some Chewits sweets are also a super choice for those lucky enough to come a-knocking…
