How to Decorate for a Halloween Party
Ok, hands up who has always wanted to throw an awesome Halloween party? Keep your hands up if you’ve avoided going all out (like you secretly want to) because of the cost of buying tonnes of props and decorations? The great news is that with Twiddlers, you don’t need to break the bank to throw your very own Monster Mash. You can be the envy of all your friends and neighbours with the biggest, baddest Halloween party on the block, AND you can do it on a budget.
We’re going to walk you through a bunch of ideas on how to decorate for a Halloween party, from indoor and outdoor decorations to kid-friendly decorations, to full-blown themed party ideas. To make it even better, everything you need is available from Twiddlers, and at an absolute steal.
Let’s get started...
Indoor Halloween Decorations
So how do you decorate the house for a Halloween party? First and foremost, think of your guests — will there be babies or young children? If so, you need to make sure sharp corners are covered and anything breakable is well and truly out of reach. You also don’t want any sort of party decorations that can easily be pulled down and put in a little one’s mouth. Here are a few great ideas:
Our Halloween LED candles are perfect for creating a dimly lit atmosphere, but with none of the fire hazard that regular candles pose. Our LED battery operated candles are made from real wax, so they still have all the aesthetic appeal of a normal candle, but they will last up to 8 hours. And more importantly, they won’t set anything on fire.
Fake spiders are always a great shout when it comes to Halloween decor. Here at Twiddlers, we have a number of fake spiders to choose from. You can have your pick from itty bitty plastic ones to soft plush ones, or even gigantic ones with scary red eyes, posable limbs, and the option to put batteries in and get them to squeak and shake!
Not all of us want to go all-out gory for the spooky season, particularly those of us with little humans. We’ve got a range of kid-friendly Halloween decorations and fun seasonal games that won’t cost the earth. Here are just a few of our favourites.
A firm family favourite for all ages, we’ve got a number of cute ‘n creepy piñatas in the shapes of bats, pumpkins, and spiders. The blindfold and stick are included, so all you need to do is simply fill with treats of your choice and get bashing!
The most obvious way to decorate a Halloween party cheaply is to get a tonne of balloons! Kids love balloons, so voilà! Our pack of 100 balloons features different seasonal designs on black or orange, featuring designs such as skeletons, pumpkins, bats, skulls and crossbones, and more.
Inflatable Spider Ring Toss.
If you’re looking for some fun budget-friendly party games, then this Inflatable Spider Ring Toss is perfect! The pack comes with a spider and witch’s hat which are easy to inflate, and 12 rings that kids can throw to land on the tip of the hat or one of the spider’s eight legs.
Outdoor Halloween Decorations
Halloween decorations suitable for use outside are a little harder to come by than your average party decor. But if you want to truly commit this year and decorate your garden or porch area, do not fear, because we have got you covered! Take a look at just a few of our seasonal products that are perfect for use outside...
Bag of Bones.
Our creepy ‘Bag of Bones’ are perfect Halloween party props. Scatter them outside, decorate your door with them, or partially obscure them in some disturbed earth for maximum effect.
- Spiderweb & Fake Spiders.
As we mentioned before, we have fake spiders and cobwebs galore! Some are cute and plush, and probably not best suited to the outside. However, we have got some little fellas made out of plastic who won’t mind if they get a bit wet.
- LED Candles.
Our wireless battery operated LED Candles can also be used outside, even a little drizzle of rain won’t put out their “flame”!
- Jack O Lanterns.
Last but not least, if you’re going for classic Jack O Lanterns for outside decorations this year, be sure to use our handy pumpkin carving kit to get the best results.
If you’re looking for some themed decorations, then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve got a few items that are perfect for fancy dress/themed parties! It’s time to get inspired...
Perhaps one of the most overlooked (and cheapest) options for Halloween props is the classic witch’s cauldron. You can get a whole pack of mini cauldrons right here.
- Bloody Apron.
Our blood splattered aprons can be worn as costumes or hung up as cheap and effective props as part of a horror/gore theme.
- Hanging Skeletons.
Our creepy spectral hanging skeletons are the perfect scary prop and can be used either inside or outside in sheltered areas. They’re great for a number of fun themes and can be hung from just about anything, although they look especially spooky when hanging from tree branches!
Bag of Bones.
Our infamous 'Bag of Bones' deserves one final mention as it's the prefect purchase for a themed party. Particularly if you're going for a pirate theme or a haunted graveyard setting!
We hope you enjoyed our guide to ‘The Best Halloween Decorations on a Budget’ and wish you all a happy Halloween.
