Holiday Parties- Halloween Edition

We know it’s still summer, but now is the perfect time to start planning your holiday gatherings. They will be here before you know it! Whether you want to throw a spooky Halloween bash, a rustic Thanksgiving feast, a vintage Christmas family gathering, or a rockin’ New Years Eve celebration- Events by Victoria Lee can help you make your party the best of the season.

Today, we wanted to talk about Halloween parties, since Halloween is right around the corner.

Halloween can be one of the most fun holidays to get family and friends together; when else can you dress-up in crazy costumes, make brains out of jello, and get excited about bats and ghosts? Halloween parties can include the whole family or they can be adult-only or kid-only.

Here are a few fun ideas for Halloween gatherings this year:

For an adult-party, you can get very creative with drinks you serve. We love the martini glasses garnished with “eyes”, the creative bottle stoppers, the amazing skeleton hand drink stand, and the Crystal Head Vodka (in the skull bottle).

Table settings really make a Halloween party come alive. From a table constructed from a wood slab and a galvanized trough, to the tablecloth made from torn cheesecloth , to paper-mache pumpkins, to halloween-themed plates and noisemakers,  to the fantastic (and simple!) candelabra and branch decor accented with crows- this entire table setting truly encompasses the spirit of Halloween.

The food served is another great opportunity to really wow your guests. Check out these eerily realistic “finger” cookies.

This amazing eyeball platter is a must-have at any Halloween Party. The tray includes mini-meatball eyeballs, mozzarella eyeballs, olive eyeballs, and more- all served in creative ways. You can really use your imagination to create a million different combinations.

Of course, if you want to go the extra mile, decorating your whole house with little surprises is a great way to get everyone excited!

Of course, you may want your party to be more kid-friendly, so here are some great ideas for kid-friendly Halloween parties!

Mummy Hot Dogs, spider Oreos, monster cupcakes, and poison trail mix are some fun twists on traditional party foods.

Your decor can be a little more subtle, but just as much fun! I love how the traditional Halloween colors are incorporated in a modern way with touches of pink and green!

Games are very important for any child’s party and playing games like “Pin the Leg on the Spider”, bobbing for apples, and halloween-themed scavenger hunts, are great ways to make sure everyone has a great time! We also love the monster-bag sack races. This may be a perfect game after trick-or-treating to make sure everyone is tired before bed.
