How will you be celebrating Halloween this year in Colorado Springs? Sure, you could put a few pumpkins out on your front porch and call it a day but where is the fun in that? To have a truly memorable Halloween you’ll want to throw an old fashioned costume party. Not only will this be a great Facebook update opportunity, but you’ll also get to see just what you’re friends are really thinking by the choice of costumes they show up in. That’s worth going through the whole experience.
Throwing a Halloween party doesn’t have to be complicated at all. First, you should send out invitations. This is easily accomplished through email with sites like E-vite. The invitation should be clear about dates, times and costume. Some Halloween party planners are very strict about costumes as they should be: “No costume, no admittance!” The invitation should also leave no doubt as to whether this is an “adult” or “kid friendly” party.
If you are opening the doors to kids, then it’s a safe bet they’ll be riding on a major sugar high. Let ‘em go but just make sure you have designated adult supervision. These should be the grownups that are in charge of making sure the kids don’t wander off or break things.
Your Halloween party is also going to be one occasion where you want to make sure the camera is standing by. With cell phones and digital cameras so readily available this shouldn’t be a problem. You might want to kick it up a notch by having a laptop open to Facebook where you can do a live blogging of the party as guests arrive and you snap their pictures for posting.
As with any party you might be throwing outdoors, make sure you have a back-up plan if the weather turns sour. The last thing you want is a bunch of soggy zombies shivering in the rain. Throwing a successful party means you shouldn’t try to do it all alone. Why not enlist the help of a party “co-host?” This is someone who can help you coordinate and get the home ready.
The first step would be cleaning out all the clutter. The help you can get for this phase of the party planning is with professional junk haulers like Junk King Colorado Springs. These are the experienced hauling crews who have the man power and truck space to take away all your junk. The idea is to make room for your guests by getting rid of some eyesores around your home like old furniture, old appliances or old mattresses. And if you got some piles of debris in the backyard, you most definitely want to haul those away to avoid any injuries from roaming party goers.
Finally, leave some room for trick or treating. Yes, this applies to the adults as well. There isn’t any age restriction on trick or treating. How much fun would it be to relive those childhood memories? Plus don’t forget all the great candy you’ll be snagging!
