Halloween is just around the corner and whether you’re creating a scare-tastic surprise for your kids or plan to venture out onto the spooky streets to enjoy some trick or treating fun, we have everything you need to throw a wicked Halloween celebration this year.
Falling on the 31st October, Halloween started as an ancient festival when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. Over time it has evolved to include trick or treating, pumpkin carving and plenty of spooky themed festivities for the whole family to enjoy.
We’re excited to stock a range of eco-friendly Halloween supplies at The Original Party Bag Company and the best luxury party brands, including Ginger Ray, Meri Meri plus so many more! Here are our top ideas to help you create a horrifyingly good Halloween in 2021…
Make an entrance to remember
If you plan to have guests over this Halloween, our Balloon Garland Kits are a must to create a freaky photo backdrop or a spectacular entrance to your home. Each kit contains a mix of monochrome-coloured balloons and spooky accessories to create an impressive sweeping balloon archway. Plan to keep the celebrations outside? Why not add the balloon garland to your front door for the ultimate welcome!
Host a Spooktacular movie night!
Scary film, check! Ghost stories, check! Popcorn, check! Hosting a Halloween themed film night is a great way to enjoy Halloween without heading outside to trick or treat. Create a Halloween themed cosy space with balloons, decorations and finish it off with freaky themed snacks. We love Pinterest for the best Halloween inspired snacks for parties and our Striped Popcorn Boxes are great for individual popcorn treats.
Anyone for a Pinata?
Pinatas are a fun way to get kids involved in a Halloween themed game that they will all enjoy. Fill the party pinata with their favourite sweet treats and let them loose to try and bash the bat!
Prepare your treats in advance
Ensuring you are keeping safe this Halloween is essential and if you are planning to welcome trick or treaters this year it’s a good idea to avoid bowls of sweets where germs can easily spread. Instead, you could prepare individual bags of treats (or ticks) with our Black Candy Stripe Bags which are an eco-friendly option too!
Create a pumpkin hunt for kids
Add a few fun games to your Halloween party plans to keep the kids entertained, we love this one by Talking Tables! The Halloween Hunt leads kids through a series of spook-tastic clues to the golden pumpkin and can be played both indoors or outdoors. Ideal for all ages, it’s the perfect spooky game for the whole family to enjoy. You could also add treats along the way and end the game with a pumpkin carving competition for older kids to battle it out to see who can create the scariest pumpkin!
