Halloween is nearly upon us. There’s a lot to plan for a children’s Halloween party including party food, party games, decorations, and party bags filled with lots of spooky party bag fillers .
So if you need some help organising your Halloween party, don’t despair – here is a quick list of advice for last moment party preparations.
What Is Your Budget?
It’s important to make a note of how much money you have to use for the party. With last moment preparations, you need to make every penny count; so split each section into its own budget and set aside some money in case of emergencies during the party planning.
Find Ways To Save Time
Every second counts with last moment preparations, so it’s very important that you make sure that you save as much time as possible. One great way to save time when organising a children’s party is to purchase readymade Halloween party bags instead of making your own.
Our online party store has a vast selection of readymade bags to choose from which have lots of fantastic party bag fillers inside, such as a Bits & Pieces Halloween Party Bag, Full Of Treats Halloween Party Bag, or a Sneaky Snake Halloween Party Bag.
Choose A Simple Fancy Dress Costume
Whilst it might be tempting to go the extra mile and choose an extravagant Halloween fancy dress costume, it’s important to keep an eye on the amount of time you have left to plan the party. As such, it might be a better idea to choose a simple fancy dress costume that requires only one of two items of fancy dress and some face paint, such as a witch or a vampire costume.
Get Creative With Decorations
If you’re trying to decorate your home on a budget and on a short timeframe, you’ll need to carefully consider the decorations that you choose. So don’t choose expensive novelty decorations, with some orange and black balloons and some basic arts & crafts skills you can create some awesome Halloween decorations at home. Plus if you choose to purchase readymade party bags instead of making your own, you’ll have lots more time to make your party decorations.
Pick Easy To Play Party Games
Every party needs party games, but that doesn’t mean that you need to go the extra mile. Some would argue that the simple and easy to play party games are often the best. Games like apple bobbing take minutes to set up and are lots of fun to play, plus all you need is a bag of apples and a bucket of water!
Limit The Menu To A Few Drinks And Snacks
Similar to other areas of the party planning process, it’s important to keep things simple when you’re on a short time scale. Whilst it might be tempting to offer a wide range of snacks and beverages for your party guests, remember that keeping it simple can save a lot of time and you’ll be able to focus your prep in other areas of the party.
Another idea for keeping the amount of party prep as low as possible is to ask guests to bring their own drinks and contribute some snacks to the party table. This is a fantastic way to involve guests in the party planning and creates a wonderful way for different guests to mingle, making it a great idea for parties if all the guests do not already know each other.
