Monster Bash

October 31, 2017. Category: diy, Halloween, holidays

Halloween is one of our favorite days of the year at A. Dominick Events. Hosting a Halloween party at home is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the Halloween spirit and enjoy an unforgettable night that’s fun for the whole family!

Nothing gets people into the Halloween spirit like some festive decorations. The fireplace mantle was the perfect spot to highlight these gorgeous black, white, and gold pumpkins.

You can’t properly celebrate Halloween without treats for the whole family! Kids indulged in some yummy Halloween candy, while the grown-ups were treated to a full bar featuring some delicious fall-inspired cocktails.

A great DIY trick to incorporate into your Halloween party is to make your own lights. With a little help from Frost Lighting, these black witch hats from Oriental Trading were used to cover hanging light bulbs, adding a fun and spooky feel to the outside decor.

The party was full of activities that kept guests feeling the Halloween spirit throughout the night! There were plenty of games for the kids, including a skeleton ring-toss and this ghost bean-bag toss from Oriental Trading.

The palm reader added to the spooky atmosphere of the party, and guests had a blast learning about what their future might hold.

To fully embrace the Gypsy-inspired theme of the party, the grown-up dinner option included Spanish fare and tapas catered by Occasions Caterers. We couldn’t forget about the little monsters, so the dinner buffet for the children featured some kid-friendly favorites, including pizza and pigs in a blanket.

A huge hit with the kids was the decorate-your-own pillowcase table. They loved getting creative and designing their own trick-or-treat bags!

The night concluded with a costume contest for the adults, and with so many fantastic costumes, it was hard to choose a winner!

1. Require Costumes! Even for grown ups. If all guests are in costume, guests don’t feel as silly and thinking of a costume, really helps to build anticipation for the guests.

2. If you are having a kid and adult party, be sure to have plenty of activities and a few helpers (babysitters) to run them, so adults can have fun too.

3. Prepare all food in advance so you can really be present and have fun!

4. Don’t over load kids with too much candy.They will get so much trick or treating. Instead focus on Savory treats, like chips and goldfish.
