Mumbling Mommy

With Halloween just around the corner, more and more people are scrambling to find the right costume, the right decorations and the right elements needed for a fantastic Halloween night.

Here are some tips to follow to make the most of your Halloween event this year.

Halloween Décor

Perhaps the most important part of any Halloween event is the decorations. You should start by determining if you have a theme you want to stick to. Do you want it to be super scary, traditional, child appropriate, etc. This is going to help you decide what sort of Halloween decorations to get and what type of overall décor you want to focus on. If you are looking for a very scary Halloween, opt for blood and guts and things that go bump in the night. If you want something a bit more child-friendly opt for black cats and witches and jack o lanterns.

Halloween Costumes

If you are inviting people to your party or event you also want to make sure your costume is on point. If you are looking for everyone to wear skeleton costumes, monster costumes, or a specific theme costume, make it known so that everyone is on the same page and has a great look. With costumes it can be a very loose requirement, allowing your guests to wear what they want or it can be more of a theme that requires they wear a specific costume to be in keeping with the rest of the people attending.


This is another important factor. Night time parties are always more mysterious and a night time Halloween party is a great option. If you are inviting kids or having it on the actual Halloween holiday, you may have to make adjustments for trick or treaters but otherwise, a late party is going to make it more fun, spookier, and more in keeping with the Halloween spirit.

Halloween Food and Snacks

Another great way to set the mood for a Halloween party is to find snacks and foods that are spooky and fun. Boiled eggs that look like eyeballs, candies shaped like spiders, spaghetti that looks like guts. These are all fun options that can be spooky but still tasty and a great addition to any Halloween party.


Do not take yourself too seriously: The last piece of advice that can really work for any party is not to take yourself too seriously. The object of a party is to have fun, if you are stressing over every little detail the whole night odds are you are not going to be having the best time. Take the time to enjoy what you have created, mingle, meet with your party goers and just have a great time.

When it comes to throwing parties, the best method is to just try things out and see what happens. Add elements here and there and see what you enjoy, what works well for you, and what you can accomplish on your own without too much stress. Taking the time to do things that you actually like can also make your party more fun for you and more enjoyable overall for your guests as well.
