Halloween Party Decorating Tips

Staff Writer · Jul 27, 2009

The only thing that shouldn’t be scary about your Halloween party is decorating. If you’ve outgrown your childhood decor consisting of that ubiquitous bright orange plastic pumpkin and CD playing Monster Mash, then it’s time to upgrade to adult decorations. If your apartment is small, you can still get festive with a bit of creativity. Here are a couple of tips to help you decorate your apartment just in time for your Halloween party:

Choose Tasteful Décor

  • Find a clear vase that’s 12-18 inches tall, and fill it with candy corn to make a festive display.
  • Put Halloween-inspired floating votive candles in a large bowl full of water to make a striking centerpiece. Stores like Pottery Barn and Crate and Barrel carry these items around Halloween.

Capitalize on the Season

  • Fill a tray or platter with gourd for a colorful statement, and be sure to keep it out for the Thanksgiving season.
  • A trio of pumpkins spread out on a mantle or coffee table is an affordable decorative touch. Remember to always choose an odd number because it will balance out the display.
  • Wrap the inside of any clear vase with leaves from outside, and then fill the vase with flowers or leaves for a Fall look.

Have Fun

  • Go on-line and print out pictures of your favorite thrillers and horror flicks. Display these photos throughout your house to get your guests talking.
  • Spray paint tree branches black and orange to get into the spirit!
  • Create ambiance with cotton cobwebs throughout your apartment.
  • Put together your favorite mix of scary songs. Check out Apple’s I-tunes for mix ideas and don’t forget to add Michael Jackson’s classic Thriller to the list.
  • Other items to help set the mood: dry ice, dark curtains/fabric, Halloween party props

Follow these tips to create a fun, yet spooky, atmosphere for an unforgettable Halloween party!
