Eat, drink and be Scary this year with your very own Halloween Party! Halloween is one of the most exciting times of the year for many. Costumes, decorations and the biggest opportunity to be extravagant.

If you are looking to throw the most memorable Halloween Party start with the decorations. Make sure to walk through your home or event location to figure out how much wall space you have, the height of the ceiling and any shelf space available to place your decorations on. Don’t stress yourself B4theParty is selling fun Halloween Décor to help you make it happen! Here are a few tips to get you started.

As the host, you want to mesmerize your guests from the moment they enter! Carved lighted pumpkins on the doorstep, bone chilling skeletons with glowing eyes in the corner, bloody doormats paired with cobwebs infested with spiders, can do the trick. Bloody footprints, bubbling cauldrons, balloons, strobe lights, hanging pumpkins, “Keep Out” tape and cobwebs never get old. It’s the little things that bring it all together.

Even though it is an adult party, selfies are everything! Pull out the creepy cloth, “Police Lineup” backdrops, spooky photo props and mugshot plates. Encourage the silliness amongst your guests and create an amazing atmosphere.

The final touch to the whole party is the host’s Costume!

Firstly, you should decide on your look. Whether it is Sexy, Scary, Funny, Cute, Angry or even a Couples costumes. This is the chance for you to share a side of yourself that you usually don’t get to. Think back to previous costumes you have worn for other events. Did you prefer to wear flats as the Peanut Butter to his Jelly? Heels to portray Charlies Angel? Or sneakers as the Referee?

Secondly, set a budget and stick to it! This might mean having to DIY part of your costume. Expect to spend anywhere from $40-$120. Keep in mind how much time you have to actually plan and execute your costume so you can avoid last minute decisions.

Lastly, accessorize, accessorize, accessorize! Some of the best costumes to date were made beyond epic by the accessories added to the look. i.e. An Egyptian Goddess not only needs a Toga but also the Gold Leaf headband and Silk cords paired with amazing highlighting makeup; or the Crazed Clown with Red Hair that is missing his bloody scissors and squeaky horn.

Whatever you come up with during this festive Halloween season, may you have a hair-raising experience, chills and thrills this Halloween!
