The more you spend, the better time you’ll have – this is just a myth. DON’T let your credit card statement spook you with Halloween expenses. Enjoying those creepy moments, dressed up as witches and wizards, decorating your venue with carved pumpkins to scare your attendees becomes easier with our party ideas. It’s only treats and no tricks with us with these budget-friendly Halloween party ideas.
1. Plan In Advance
The ideal time to plan and promote your event is around 90-120 days prior. That way, you can alter your sales strategy if the tickets are not sold by a certain date. Once the date and venues are decided, use effective event marketing strategies and learn more about the ideal time to promote your event.
2. Pick A Thriller Of A Theme
Do you like witches and wizards or perhaps a subtle Jack-O’-Lantern theme? Picking your theme gives you a variety of colors to work with. Let’s say you’re hosting a Vampire Halloween event. Pick colors such as black, red, and purple. Since you celebrate Halloween every year, most of your props can be reused depending on your theme.
3. Send Out Spooky Invites
If you didn’t manage to scare your attendees with a spooky invite last year, you better do it now. Be it a small Halloween night party or a massive Monster bash, create email invites with scary Halloween illustrations using our email marketing integration which makes it easier to sync your attendee list and send out custom invitations.
4. Dollar Store To The Rescue
Most of the Halloween props and decor should be in your storage if this is not your first Halloween event. In case you’re organizing a Zombie-themed party and you find yourself with no zombie-related props, settle for DIY props if you have the time or simply visit the dollar store. You’ll find glittery polyfoam tombstones, plastic skulls, and Halloween-themed black plastic yard signs to up the spook factor of your event.
5. Eyeball Meat Curry, Anyone?
How eerie can you get to scare your attendees? If creativity is your second name, then this is the place to display it. Arrange a table setting and depending on the theme you chose, spruce it up with either a spider pizza or the eyeball meat curry.
6. Fancy A Bloody Mary, Perhaps?
Whether you choose a witches and wizards theme or a gothic Halloween party, serve your attendees with the spookiest cocktails. To be awarded as the creepiest event presenter, add eerie fruits in cocktails like lychees to look like eyeballs and some dry ice.
7. For Those Spine-Chilling Selfies
Photos are the reason why social media is growing each day. Set up a photo booth at your event with different props and a white bloodstained backdrop or a simple black backdrop with a lot of golden spiders pinned to it. The more attendees upload your event images, the more you’re getting famous without paying a dime.
8. Scream Out From A Spooky Bell Tower
Social media tower works off course! Event promotion if done well can give you a sold-out event. Kickstart your marketing campaign in advance. Roll out Early Bird offer and contests to attract new people to your event.
9. Howling Halloween Offers
Apart from the creepy parties, the scary fest brings with it Halloween offers. You’ll probably find Halloween sales at almost every store. Take advantage of those offers to pick the best stuff at low prices. At Yapsody, you don’t have to wait until Halloween to avail our Halloween offers.
