Halloween is fast approaching and here are a few tips and tricks for a spooky event:

  • Lighting is key and you can never have too many candles.

  • You can also never have too many pumpkins! Stacking pumpkins of various sizes and colours is a great (and cost effective!) way of decorating for Halloween.

  • Throw in a few of the classics like Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to get everyone on their feet.

  • When it comes to the menu, I recommend putting on an over the top feast so that your guests feel like they have stepped into Hogwarts and are overwhelmed with choice!

  • To create a vivid and eye-catching event, add some bold accents that contrast the dark background. The brighter and more fluorescent, the better!

  • Don’t be afraid to go a little overboard! This is one of the few times a year when you can really push a theme and use it to create a spectacular, memorable event.
