Keep Your Decorating Fun, by Introducing Something New

One of the most exciting events around the spooky Halloween season is decorating your house. Each year, many of the neighbors will most likely use the same decorations they purchased previously. While there’s nothing wrong with keeping up with the Joneses, or re-purposing last year’s décor, this year you can surprise them with a whole new theme! One fresh and the cheap trick is to use what’s called a wall tapestry from If you’re creative, then you can create your fabric. Be sure to use waterproof paints and material that will hold up in inclement weather. Regardless, these tapestries are an excellent way to surprise your goblins, ghouls, and community!

Select Healthy Halloween Snacks

Next, don’t splurge on candy to pass out to the locals or your child’s school class. Instead, there are plenty of fresh ways to present the crowd with healthy snacks as an alternative to the sugary confections that cost a boatload. You can pass out caramel apple slices, boo nanas, and homemade gluten-free cookies. Of course, for the little trick or treaters, fruit snacks and roll-ups are excellent and not as bad as sugar.

Pick a Costume

In addition to the yummy snacks and treats, everyone knows Halloween is about dressing up in your favorite costume. You can make your costume or dredge through the crowded costume shops and places such as Target for the outfit to scare the masses. No matter what you do, be sure the costumes have good visibility and are clear from hanging material on causing accidents.

Safety First!

Now that you have the décor and the candy don’t forget to make this year’s Halloween the best by choosing safety first. Be conscious of using candles for pumpkins and seek other creative ways to illuminate your pumpkins. For instance, glow sticks are easy to open, safe and won’t start a fire.

Healthy Halloween Snacks: Hollow out a small pumpkin and keep the lid. Make sure the lid has a stem for aesthetics. Fill the pumpkin with Ranch Dip or veggie dip and then surround with healthy vegetables. Fun presentation for something nutritional.

Decorate the room with the traditional colors of black and white. Surround each table setting by skulls, bones, and spiders. While this theme works well for any Halloween party, make your child’s spot special by creating a thrown with Challis, etc.,

Visit places like Pinterest for fresh decorating ideas. This site is also a terrific place for fun food ideas and games. We love pumpkin bowling with toilet paper and a small round pumpkin to roll.

Pay particular tribute to the bewitching hour of when your child was born. Organize your party around that hour if it’s appropriate and sing “Happy Birthday” on his or hers particular time they entered the world.

Adult parties can include some ‘delicious but evil ‘concoctions such as Vampire’s Kiss made with Bailey’s Irish Crème and Raspberries Wow good, and they look extra creepy!
