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, and no matter how you’re choosing to celebrate, we’ve a ton of helpful tips on how to have a frightfully fun 31st of October. Without further ado, here’s how to host the ideal 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 stickers! Why not pick out some truly spine-chilling messages written in blood? After that, some hanging skulls in your hallway are sure to deliver a good jump-scare to unsuspecting party guests, and some battery-powered tea lights are a fire-hazard-free way to bathe them in a ghastly glow! 

Costumes! 

No haunted house is complete without some undead hosts to haunt it, and 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 light-up headband is a great way to grab people’s attention, or if you’re going for a creepier look, pairing a terrifying mask with some fake blood and realistic-looking bandages, these are sure to add a truly gruesome touch! Alternatively, grab some sequinned devil horns or eye mask for a more seductive style!

Food! 

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 containers such as patterned tubs and snack baskets, and fill them with some savoury nibbles and sweet goodies. When it comes to drinks, serve up some punch in novelty skull-shaped goblets and matching shot glasses! Don’t forget to deliver some tricks with your treats; why not cover the table in a ragged cloth and nestle some miniature fake spiders amongst it to creep up on guests as they help themselves to your frightening feast?
