TRICK OR TREAT: How to Throw Your Best Halloween Party Yet!


Halloween is just around the corner, it's time to start thinking about how you and your friends can celebrate this spooky day!




Pick a Theme
To take some of the stress out of finding the perfect Halloween costume try picking a theme to guide guests as to what to wear.  Some popular Halloween themed parties this year are: True Blood, 7 Deadly Sins, Superheroes and Villains, and a Murder Mystery Party.

Setting the Mood
Throwing a party is all about setting the mood for your guests.  Create the ultimate experience for your guests by decorating in true Halloween style.
-Try creating cobwebs on your porch by stretching out some cotton
-Fill a cauldron with dry ice and add some hot tap water this will create a rolling fog that will take your party up a notch
-Blackout! Replacing your lights with blacklights for the night will definitely set the mood for your Halloween party
-Use wine goblets and votives for some eery lighting throughout the house
