Halloween Themes Part II

There is something about fancy dress which helps a party get off the ground. I find that the cool period that is normally experienced as guests arrive dissolves away with fun and humour as new characters enter the room. Inhibitions are put to one side. Costumes are an instant ice breaker.

Halloween parties are probably one of the easiest themes to dress for as there are so many iconic costumes to choose from. It would be relatively easy to attend Halloween parties for the next ten years and dress entirely differently on each occasion.

To add to the number of choices, costumes of a particular genre can be approached in different ways. A Classic Witch Costume for example, could be traditional, glamorous, sexy, or scary.

If the party has a general Halloween theme the choices are very open. To adopt a more specific theme narrows the choice, and gives the party more cohesion, ensuring all guests feel integral to the atmosphere and overall look of the party.

Some of the Halloween themes that we have explored at previous parties are: Traditional Halloween; The Count's Kitchen; Witches and Wizards; Welcome to Hell; Rocky Horror and next year, for the first time...The Day Of The Dead.

Whatever theme you decide to run with, the planning remains the same. Whether the party is to be held at home or at an outside venue, the budget, (how much you wish to spend) is the first consideration. The largest part of the budget will probably be allocated to food, drink and room hire. Specific costs will depend on the number of guests attending.

Decorations and entertainment are fairly flexible expenses. The cost of Halloween decorations and Party Supplies can be kept to a minimum by creating your own. Home-made decorations can also be part of the fun of the proceedings, as it can involve all members of the family, old and young. The same applies to games and ideas for entertainment. As with Christmas, you will find that your collection of Halloween essentials grows over time.
