Halloween is right around the corner; no need to be scared, check out the party tips Homes.com has prepared to help make entertaining in your home this season spook-tacular!
We’re in the Halloween spirit this year, as you can tell by our Spooky Spaces contest and our downright creepy real estate analysis; as such, we want to help you get into the chilling mindset, so we’ve put together these frightening easy party tips with the help of our spooky spaces partner, Party City.
Transform the outside of your house into an evil entrance to send shivers up guests’ spines right off the bat (haha, get it)! Outside decorations like creepy front porches are of ‘grave’ importance when setting the scene for the good times waiting.
Decorate the living space guests will spend the most time in; from Halloween mantels to bathrooms, your house should be an ex-scream sight. The party will be terrifying with stretched faux spider webs over a painting and place black ravens and bats all around the room. EEK!
Serve ghoulish refreshments for your fright night, like this fizzy pumpkin drink or Rice Krispies pumpkin treats. Don’t forget to dress the bottles in creepy fake labels, drape your buffet in jute and bring on the skull glasses and goblets. Adding scary elements like masks, wigs, veils or mummy bandages will certainly add to the fun!
Get in the ‘spirit’ by making the event a costume party! In your party invitations you can tell guests they’d better dress up…..or else! Increase the fun by throwing a costume contest during your party; award prizes to the funniest, scariest, most original, sexiest, or most unlike their day job!
