Thrilling Ideas For A Halloween Party On A Budget

Halloween is a thrilling time for people of all ages but the budget can wear thin on certain holidays and while you are still enthusiastic about having a great time with loved ones, practical considerations do beckon. The ideal solution is to plan a thrilling Halloween party on a budget (a sensible budget) using elements that are cost-effective but full of impact and beauty…or well, horror.

A Single Theme

Choose a theme like ghosts or vampires or werewolf etc and just buy elements relating to that theme. You’ll find if you stick to a singular theme you are able to buy larger packets of relevant décor at a lower price. A whole pack of vampire’s teeth costs less than for example buying a few items each of different supernatural concepts. Not to mention you can refashion what you have at home! Look for materials like velvet, leftover crepe and chart paper, and even fairy lights or Christmas décor items (although you’ll need to give them a turn for the darker and more terrible!)

Smoke Bombs & Sparklers

Smoke bombs are a great treat to use at your Halloween party. Especially when the evening is getting started or at night if you have great lighting arranged. They let loose smoke in different colors add a hint of beauty, mysticism, and even gloomy, foggy horror if you think about it.

And Halloween sparklers are a real festive touch as they can be bought rather inexpensively and in different sizes which determines how long they will stay alight. You can also hide them in your décor to light them later when the moment’s right.

Ideas For Throwing A 2021 Halloween Party On A Budget

Photos Make Or Break A Party

One of the best ways to make a small budget stretch far is to create activities that will keep guests and especially children endlessly occupied such a constructing a photo booth. All you need is an interesting background (that can be inexpensively printed as well), maybe a table and a banner. Props such as signs to hold or masquerade masks can be made easily DIY style using some colored cardboard and wooden sticks or even straws. Glitter glue and markers are your best friends to add a sparkling touch to the photographs.

In terms of backdrops, you can choose anything from a police photo background to a dark stormy gothic novel-type night. Think of how you can use items lying around the house or perhaps in the attic to fit in with the idea you have chosen. A little elbow grease and creativity can go a long way in sprucing up any space.

Strategic Snacks

When planning a Halloween party for a large group of people including children that are definitely going to get hungry you want to opt for snacks that can be prepared in relative abundance at less cost but are still filling and delicious. Create grazing platters that are incredibly fashionable nowadays and they can be decorated Halloween style with cobwebs and spiders.

Grazing platters have a variety of small finger food that can easily be munched on even without a plate. It is quite ideal for large gatherings. You can also put out snacks like homemade toffee squares, caramel apples, brownies, hot dogs, and small finger sandwiches.

Halloween parties in 2021 will be an amazing time to celebrate with your friends and family. And with COVID-19 still looming around, it’s important to be safe. Offer some social distancing items like masks, and try to format your seating and food so that the gatherings aren’t too close. But remember it’s all about having fun, plan your Halloween Party On A Budget and celebrate!

Inspiration For Using Sparklers On Holidays

Sparklers mean excitement to children and adults alike. They signify a deviation from standard party poppers, balloons, and other decorations. Sparklers are an ideal choice for someone looking to upgrade the festivities and add a bit of light, sparkle, and joy. Sparklers are incredibly versatile and chic and go well with a number of special occasions. Here is a little Inspiration for using sparklers on holidays to jazz up any event.

Your Regular Weekend Family Dinner

Who said you can’t use sparklers on family dinners and get-togethers? These times with the family are amongst the most beautiful memories that you must preserve with photos and videos and using sparklers before everyone digs into grandma’s specialty pot pie is a great way to mark the occasion, (even if it comes a couple of weekends a month). Just make sure to exercise caution when using sparklers in the house around pets or children. Light the sparkler but keep it at a distance from your body.

Jazz Up A Mundane Birthday

After childhood, most birthdays seem just a little boring. If you want to do an impromptu birthday celebration for your adult best friend with just pizza and beer, birthday sparklers can really add a sense of occasion. Not to mention most adults do not prefer elaborate birthday decorations unless they’re that rare person who loves a good theme or dress-up birthday party.

The New Year Or The First Day

Sparklers are almost considered synonymous with New Year’s celebrations as they are the perfect way to mark a new beginning and new resolutions. They are also more pleasing to look at than noisemakers and easier to use than something like smoke bombs. Not to mention you can use environmentally friendly sparklers or biodegradable ones.

New Year’s Eve Sparklers work well for first days too; such as the first day of a new job. They are an easy way to take the celebration to the next level for events like anniversaries or marriage proposals.

It’s Christmas Time

Christmas is when you have to go all out in terms of décor and Christmas sparklers are a welcomed addition to the general splendor. They’re a good background for singing Christmas carols or for after dinner on Christmas Eve too. Not to mention they make a terrific centerpiece at the dinner table and can be used in the garden in the evening to compliment the rest of the Christmas decorations and lights.

An Expression Of Love

Valentine’s Day is perfect for sparklers, they also come in heart shapes! Whether you’re about to pop the big question or profess your everlasting love, sparklers may it all the more special, bright and memorable.

Halloween is terrific fun especially with the right decorations and all the fixings. Carved-up pumpkins, glimmering skeletons, eerie cobwebs, all add to the thrill and Halloween sparklers can too.

Genius Ideas for Halloween Parties During COVID-19

Hey, we get it! COVID-19 sure has put a damper on a lot of parties and events so you’re probably wondering what Halloween 2020 will be like. It’s one the most popular times to host a party and with social distancing restrictions, we wanted to find some genius ideas for Halloween parties during COVID-19. After all, we sure could use some fun in our lives right now and Halloween hasn’t ghosted us yet!

Halloween Party during COVID-19 is not cancelled.

Halloween candy is on the shelves, people are scrambling to get the best costume and parties are being planned. Here are some great ideas on how you can keep your family and your party guests safe.

Outdoor Halloween Party

The best place to host your 2020 Halloween party during COVID-19 is outdoors. Your backyard is the perfect place. You don’t have to pay venue rental fees or transport any of your 2020 Halloween decorations. Having your Halloween party in 2020 outdoors allows you to space everything out and hopefully, your party-goers will adhere to the social distancing guidelines.

Here are some cool things you can do to elevate your outdoor Halloween party to a whole new level.

How To Plan Halloween Parties During COVID-19

Create a Candy Graveyard

Everyone loves candy, so this will work if it is a kid’s party or adults only. Set up some fact tombstones and sprinkle candy and prizes around them. You can usually buy them at stores that sell Halloween decor (Michael’s, Target, Party City, Walmart, etc). For an extra spooky touch, you can add smoke to your graveyard and some creepy music. Everyone will love it!

It’s kind of like an Easter egg hunt, everyone can run around the yard collecting candy. It’s genius really because they will go at different paces, ultimately keeping their distance from each other. Just make sure to provide everyone with some instructions…you don’t want one person gobbling up all the candy.

Sky  lanterns for Halloween

Spooky Movie Night

Get a huge blow up projector screen and play a spooky movie. This is such a cute idea. You can set up individual or couple seating areas with pillows or blankets, spaced apart 6 feet. Everyone can get cozy while watching the movie.

Set Up Food Stations

Rather than have all the food in one place, create small snacking stations throughout your yard. Not only is this a great idea to get people mingling and talking, but it will allow your guests to stay a safe distance from each other.

Halloween Parties during COVID-19 – Exciting & Safe.

Light it Up!

To make your Halloween 2020 party even more memorable and exciting, light up the night. Unexpected activities really make a huge impact on party-goers. Order holiday sparklers and allow your party-goers to light up the sky by twirling and spelling out things. Everyone keeps their distance when anyone has a sparkler in hand so it’s a great way to social distance.

Another great idea, that will totally blow your guests minds is to release sky lanterns. Never heard of them before? Your guests probably haven’t either that’s why it’s a genius idea!

For Halloween, we have pumpkin sky lanterns. These are orange lanterns with a Black Pumpkin Face. Sky Lanterns are a real hit for any occasion and can be used for day or night use entertainment for any occasion or event.

If you want an extra special touch you could order both white sky lanterns and the pumpkin sky lanterns. It will result in a beautiful, and unexpected display of light in the sky. We promise these sky lanterns will be a hit!

Decorate to the Max

Go all out with your Halloween decorations in 2020. We believe that Halloween shouldn’t be cancelled but it will have to look a little different this year. Decorate your front yard, the backyard any and everywhere to really WOW your guests.

Trunk-or-Treat

What a great idea! Park your car at the end of the driveway pop open your trunk and decorate it with Halloween decor. Have baskets or bowls of candy inside for trick-or-treaters (if it’s allowed in your area). Super cute idea!

BUT! Make sure that you do not let anyone’s hand dig into the candy bowls. Instead, use candy grabbers to pick up the candy and drop it in their bags or pumpkins. You just never know! Better to be safe than sorry.

If you don’t want to risk having a lot of people get together there are tons of virtual options as well. Stay tuned for an upcoming post on how to throw a virtual Halloween party.
