Halloween is right around the corner and that means ghosts, glee, and a great party. If you want to throw the best Halloween party on the block, here are some tips to streamline your decor without going overboard.
Choose a simple color scheme
Halloween is great because the colors are already picked for you: black, orange, and purple. However, these colors offer a level of contrast that might be jarring for some party guests. If you want to create a great looking Halloween party, choose three main complementary colors and stick to it throughout your decor.
A rule of thumb is to pick one loud color and two neutrals. For example, orange will look great with black and white. Purple can shine with white and gold. Experiment with colors that suit your aesthetic and get chair covers, and rental linens that tie the room together. Cotton rental linens are high-quality fabrics that range anywhere from table runners to napkins. They look great if you want to boost your decor.
Choose one Halloween-themed dish
Planning clever puns and baking complicated dishes will take valuable time and energy. If you choose one, beautiful dish to embody your Halloween festivities, you can double this treat as a centerpiece for your table.
A tiered display with creepy cupcakes or another dastardly dish will tempt your guests. Simply serve cheese and crackers and other foods as the lead-up to the main event. If you want a strictly Halloween-themed party, however, holding a potluck party is a great way to take the stress off of you.
Prep your punch
Instead of getting countless mixers and liquors for every taste bud, choose a festive punch that draws the crowd. It’ll save you space and look great, especially if you’re good with food coloring — but even if you’re not, using plenty of yellows and reds will give it an orange color while blue and yellow will serve up green.
Simply serve your punch in a large bowl or tub with a ladle for self-serve options throughout the night. For an extra-special flare, top it off with sherbet ice cream for a scrumptious concoction that will last the whole night long.
