Tips for Preparing Your Halloween Party
Pick a Theme
Halloween is obviously the overarching theme, but what kind of tricks are you trying to treat your guests to? Are you going for more of a candy-corn-colored playful party, or a dark, haunted mansion vibe? Use Adobe Spark’s premade designs to help you fine tune your ideas and develop your venue into one otherworldly experience.
Don’t Break the Bank
You don’t need to spend a lot of money to make things look dreary and desolate, in fact, you can do quite the opposite! Use Adobe Spark for all your creative paper and display needs, free of charge. Then, think outside the box with some of your other décor ideas. Construction paper, old bed sheets, and candles are some household items that can transform any standard space into a sinister one. If you need to buy decorations, hold on to them for your future parties! If they collect dust overtime, they’ll look all the more perfect for the occasion.
So Much Room for Activities!
Halloween parties are some of the most fun of all because of all the opportunity for activities! Adobe Spark offers customizable designs for ideas like raffles, bingo, and costume contests. Other crowd favorites include bobbing for apples, carving pumpkins, toilet paper mummies, and donut eating contests. But any good party game can be transformed into a Halloween-themed one with the addition of some plastic spiders and blood-colored drinks!
Eat, Drink, and Be Scary!
Fueling up is important to keep the party all through the night. Since Halloween caters to a lot of sweet treats, don’t forget to offer your guests more filling foods that offer more sustenance. Spaghetti and eyeball meatballs are a classic, along with deviled eggs, chips and dips, and other sorts of finger foods. For beverages, fill your witch’s cauldron with a punch potion of sorts!
