Are you planning a Halloween party? Well then, make sure to not make the following mistakes!
Not making a guest list – you want to exactly know how many people can attend the ideal party to enjoy. Whilst most people will definitely be glad to tell you they can participate when you first invite them, you can count on some of them being unable to come for certain reasons: they can have plans for that specific date already – you can count on a number of kids parties during Halloween. This is why it is important to be aware of exactly how many people are coming, and who are they. When you send out invitations, try to include options where the guests can state their preferences with regards to food and the like.
Not informing the guests of the theme – a mistake most Halloween children’s parties from Miranda make is not including enough details of the theme of the party. The word Halloween itself seems enough of a description for most moms, but often, the word can be too broad and you might end up with kids who do not exactly fit in with the theme of your party. Whilst that is fine, you do not want them to feel out of place, which is why it is important to be specific enough when it comes to outfits and other things to bring to the party. Narrowing down the theme to a ghost party, for example, is a good idea.
Not picking a colour scheme – coming right next to the theme is the colour scheme of the party. When you hear the word Halloween, the colours you tend to remember range from orange, red, yellow, green to black and white. Well, unless you want to be too colourful in your decorations and detract from the spooky mood, it is a good idea to stick to a few principal colours for your colour scheme – for example, three main colours. This will also help you considerably when picking out food assortments and drinks, because it will narrow down your selection considerably.
Picking too many food options – there are so many sweets and treats you would want to try out for Halloween that it is normal to overwork yourself baking them before the party. But if you want to not be in bed the day of the party, try to stick to a limit. Go for a limited number of food options, and stick to a few drink varieties. And when it comes to sweets for trick and treating, you can easily buy large packets of your average sweets.
