Throwing a Spooktacular Event

Halloween is almost here! As party professionals, this is one of our favorite times of year. We love incorporating holiday themes into sophisticated, well curated events. There is so much fun to be had with Halloween-centric decor, menus, costumes, and more! Here are our favorite tips and tricks for throwing some Halloween spirit into a spooktacular event:

EERIE EATS

One of our favorite ways to incorporate themes is through creative food and beverage menus. Greet your guests with worm shooters made with udon noodles in green broth. Just one of the many culinary treats sure to delight.

GHOULISH GLASSWARE

Your creativity doesn't have to stop with what’s in your drink or the name of your drink! Take it a step further and choose themed glassware to add to the ambiance. Serve your guests their drinks in beakers and test tubes while mad scientists’ lab coats drape over the bar area.

LIGHTING EFFECTS

In order to give your event a spooky feel, get creative with lighting! By using black light, dimmed lighting, strobe lights, spotlights, and even candles, you can easily transform your space and accentuate different decor that you want to stand out. Candles are a great table top option, because they can act as both a center piece and a lighting alternative for a dim and haunted feeling.
