Halloween is just around the corner again. People are already planning great parties for October 31th and they should have some exceptional ideas at hand. So we came up with 5 essentials for your spooky event. Take a seat and enjoy!
There’s no better way to motivate your guests than a costume contest. This will drive them to great ideas for original outfits. You can select the award you prefer for the winner, from money to liquor or gift cards. Remember to notify your invitees that you are going to do this contest, because that’s the best way for them to be aware and design an awesome Halloween costume.
Halloween has always been a festivity related to ghosts, vampires, witches, and, especially, carved pumpkins. That last one is an all-time favorite and it’s something everyone is curious about. Cut a hole on the top of the pumpkin to make space for a lantern or a candle. Then carve the face. You can also carve forms to avoid repeating the same design in other pumpkins. We promise you´ll have lots of fun doing this and your guest will be pleased with the decoration.
There’s no Halloween without candy, so make sure to put some in bowls located all over your party. Also you can make your guests go home with a gift bag full of candies. They will appreciate that!
Halloween is fully thematic. There’s no doubt about it, so try to check every detail: from décor to food. Here we have some ideas for spooky snacks: brain dip, ghost-shaped cookies, witch chicken fingers, spider cupcakes, and many more.
Spider web everywhere!
There are so many options when it comes to decorating a Halloween party. We already told you to include carved pumpkins among those alternatives. Another idea is to buy lots and lots of synthetic spider web to put on the walls and over tables and sofas. It’s easy, cheap and fast, in case you’re looking for something simple but likable.

For those who still don’t know, spandex is a synthetic fiber known for its exceptional elasticity. It’s stronger and more durable than natural rubber, in case you thought about competition. It’s also known for being great when it comes to making tight clothes. However, nowadays it has another use: decoration.
Spandex décor brings versatility, modernity and beauty to any event… that’s for sure. It’s perfect to recreate movement and deepness, taking venues to a whole new level, and it can be used for any type of gathering (the color and size will vary, depending on the theme and the occasion).
What can you do with spandex décor? Well, the answer is formed by several options: backdrops, sails, hanging panels, screens, chair covers, chair bands, table covers, table toppers and truss covers.
Even though spandex usually looks spectacular by itself, you can use light on it (especially if you are using white spandex) to set mood or create enjoyable visual experiences for your guests.
Do you want more positive arguments? Ok, let’s go! Spandex is easy to clean and easy to install/remove; is also environment-friendly because of its low maintenance; and, the best of all, is transformable.
No matter the theme or the occasion, spandex is always an option. Take in consideration that this type of material is actually a trend inside the world of event planning.

Party planners have something really simple and understandable in common: they want to promote social interaction during all the events they organize. To achieve that kind of goal they need to take in consideration every single detail, from the seating chart to the decoration. Here’s where small centerpieces play an important part.
Imagine this picture: a round table full of guests and in the middle a wide and tall centerpiece. What do you think will happen? We’ll answer for you. Your invitee’s visión will be partially blocked by this big ornamental item, provoking an interruption during any normal conversation between the persons seated in front of each other.
To avoid this problem, we suggest the usage of small centerpieces. They will not disturb or distract anybody, letting social interaction be the main element in every table.
But, stop right here. We are not saying you should never use tall centerpieces; it will always depend on your goal prioritization.
It’s true that is easier to catch your guest’s attention with beautiful big centerpieces. It’s also true that these kind of items will help you fill a big venue. However, remember that minimalism is a trend that’s pretty alive, so not always bigger is better.
So, to all event planners: your first step before organizing a party or event is to clearly know what are the host’s goals. When you have those, you can start the real deal and make the adequate decisions.
Remember that the success of every event depends on the quantity of established goals you accomplished through it.
