Tips for Halloween Decorations

Part of the fun when it comes to Halloween is coming up with new and creative ways to decorate. This can turn the photos from your party into memorable moments that people will want to post in their house. If you do your decorating right, you can even capture some of these pieces inside a photo booth so they are front and center for everyone’s pictures.

Everyone knows how to put up a spider web, but you can take it one level further. Wrapping fake bugs and skulls in a thicker spider web and hanging them from the ceiling gives a spooky cocoon effect. You can even leave a few on the table to use as props for pictures.

Syringe Jello ShotsScreen Shot 2014-10-16 at 9.07.50 AM

For a kid party or an adult party these are fun. Take the plastic syringes you use to give kids their medicine and fill them with red Jello, with or without alcohol. This is a fun way to drink the Jello and it makes for a very spooky prop in photos. If you want to get creative you can use other colors of Jello as well.





Tonic Water Glow

If you plan on having black light, and why wouldn’t you, make sure to feature drinks that have tonic water. Tonic water will make almost any clear beverage glow. It gives a great effect to the glass and creates a new kind of light all over the room. Plus it doesn’t change the taste of drinks that already call for it.

Christmas Light PhotosScreen Shot 2014-10-16 at 9.07.08 AM

Using orange colored Christmas lights you can deface some of your old photos, preferably copies. Simply put the orange lights in the place of the eyes and hang them around the venue. This is another great prop to include outside the photo booth. It works best if you get the battery operated ones so you don’t have to have a power source.

Glow Stick Water BalloonsScreen Shot 2014-10-16 at 9.06.43 AM

Pop a glow stick in a water balloon and seal it up. Then put the water balloon in white stocking and hang it from the ceiling. These glowing orbs are a unique form of light and add to a eeriness, especially on a dance floor. You can even make the ropes look like nooses if you are so inclined.

These are just a few ways to make your Halloween decorations really stand out. People will be talking about your event for weeks after. You may even want to include a few “do it yourself” options on the table outside the photo booth to see what creations your guests come up with on their own.
