Halloween is not just for kids anymore. Sure, they are the reason we buy candy and keep it at the ready for the trick or treaters. But be honest; don’t you pick the candy you’ll have no problem eating if there is some left in the bowl? Typically the weekend before the big day, you’ll find adult parties popping up all over the neighborhood. If you want to get into the act this year by throwing your own Halloween fest here are some helpful tips you can apply to your party production:
Get Creative With the Decorations:
There will be an unlimited supply of fake spider webs or plastic tombstones to spruce up your front yard but since a lot of the party action will be indoors you want to make sure your creepy decorations extend there as well. To set the mood you can rent a theatrical fog machine to lay a mist of eerie smoke by the front door to great your guests. Its’ also easy to find a dry ice supplier for some chunks of this special effect. When dry ice is dropped into any liquid, it creates that smoky look and it melts away completely harmless… just wear gloves when you break up the dry ice.
You can also hang bats, spiders and other ghoulish items from the ceiling with fishing wire and tacks. Any chance for your guest to knock into something floating in the air will certainly elicit a scream or two.
Have the Digital Camera Standing By:
You can create a live streaming digi photo display by setting up a lap top and digital camera hooked up. You can either assign photography duties to a special friend or simply pass around the camera and encourage everyone to start snapping. You can even set up a faux photo booth and make sure everyone stops by for a snap.
Go Black & White on the TV:
While you pick out your perfect party soundtrack, don’t forget the visual element. You can run some classic black and white horror films on the TV with the volume turned down to add a creepy allure. Good choices would be any of the classic horror films from the 40s and 50s plus the perennial favorite “Night of the Living Dead:” the original!
Clear Out the Clutter:
Cleaning up before and after your Halloween party will be greatly aided if you hired the professional services of junk haulers like Junk King Chattanooga. Before the party, you might want to make room in the garage to set up your spooky buffet or mini-haunted house display. To accomplish that, you’ll want to toss out all that junk that is stacked to the rafters. After the party, you’ll have plenty of trash that might overflow your garbage cans. With a professional team of junk haulers on call before and after the party you’ll be able to make sure to stay on top of the cleanup efforts.
