Last-Minute Costume Favors:
If the party is a costume based party (or you want to add some extra fun), keep a small basket of impromptu props for guests to put on if they’ve forgotten their costumes. Buy cheap plastic vampire teeth, mustaches and throw in some festive hats scarves, sunglasses. Let them use it as creatively as possible.
Halloween Serving Platters:
To avoid cleaning up afterwards, you can purchase some theme based cups, paper plates, straws, paper napkins etc. If you want to save money, you can buy some plain white ones beforehand, and paint them with some red paint to look like blood splatter.
With Halloween you have liberty to try out your spookiest food ideas. Prepare some creepy witch fingers or spooky spider cupcakes. They look great yet spooky displayed on food trays. The creepier and gorier, the better!
Halloween candies is a great way to keep the guests occupied. Place individual baggies of different items which the guests can use to make their own treat bags. Be sure to fill up on most favourite items that most people like. Butter cups, mini Kit Kat bars and other small chocolate treats are everyone’s favourite and should definitely be on the list.
Also, do not forget to tag each item individually and properly. You never know which of your guest is allergic to what ingredient. You definitely don’t want to make them fall sick. It’s also a great way to indicate which snacks are gluten-free, dairy-free or contain nuts.
Edible Party Favors:
Be sure that your guests don’t leave the party empty handed. Marshmallow Pops or yummy Cake Pops that can be an added extra to already pre-packed bags of Halloween candy or if you let your guests make Halloween candy bags themselves this should look good when given alongside. Your guests are sure to get impressed by this little gesture.
Keep in mind these Halloween bits to keep your festive spirits high and guests entertained. Enjoy the spookiest and funniest Halloween this Halloween’s Day.
