Preparing for Halloween

Guest Author - Rose Mary

Everyone, especially children, will expect to see your house decorated to the nines on Halloween so be sure not to disappoint. Your decorations should match your theme, so give them plenty of thought. For instance, a haunted house theme should be complete with low lighting, smoke, a spooky soundtrack, and even live ghouls to jump out and scare the guests as they arrive. A horror movie bash might include retro horror B-movie posters stuck on the walls which you can find on the Internet and print off at home.

Decorations can be found just about anywhere in the months leading up to Halloween. Even grocery stores carry a wide selection. Start shopping early so you can get the best selection possible and take advantage of any sales. If you can't find just what you're looking for you can always rent decorations from a local party supply shop or even purchase decorations from the Internet. The Internet has an almost endless selection where you can find just about any party supplies or decorations you'll need.

Music

Music is an important aspect of any party as well. While some spooky tunes are fun at first, you'll want to switch over to some more upbeat music once the party gets going. People love to dance so have plenty of high energy songs ready to go. If you are inviting a variety of different people, have several different types of music so no ones gets bored.

Lighting

Setting up light bulbs at specific points of interest can cast ghastly hues and shadows in the windows and on the porch, as well as when you open the door. If this light is red or orange, it completely magnifies the effect!

Fog

A fog machine is always a favorite. Not only are they inexpensive, but they will come in handy for parties throughout the year such as outdoor summer parties or around the pool at night. Most times, these machines come with a switch to activate them on and off. If you are outside waiting for trick or treaters, it is easy to activate the fog when they are approaching your home or driveway.

There are many ways to prepare for Halloween decorating. Make sure to keep the decorations clean and repaired so that they can be used year after year.
