If you want to have a great, tasteful Halloween party this year for yourself and a few friends or family then there are a few tips and suggestions that might help you decorate perfectly.
When deciding where to host your party open spaces are always good, I find a conservatory an idea area because of the weather protection and open view, they’re generally big enough to hold a few friends and a dinner table or buffet table – depending on what you want to serve at your party.
Candles are always a great asset to a Halloween party, the flickering light has a slightly eerie look to it and tall candle sticks have a traditional old gothic look that suits a creepy party perfectly. Fake bats and spiders can be hung and placed just about anywhere, though always make sure you decorate in moderation – don’t make the space look cluttered but have enough to spread them out.

When you want to be tasteful with your party little things can generally make a bigger difference to your party, a few wooden carvings or a vase of dead flowers would be a subtle but nice touch, generally low lighting and a few fake spider webs are associated with Halloween – you’re generally trying to make your home look deserted. Fake cobwebs over picture frames to slightly obscure the images or around commonly used areas such as doors, drawers and kitchen utensils can be the perfect was of making your home look creepy and abandoned.
If you want to get original a fake skeleton can be great fun, you can sit them down at the table, place them in a chair with a paper or even dress them up. It’s the sort of thing that will amuse your guests and give your home that little bit of extra generic Halloween appearance. Putting out mirrors in the candle light can be a good way of startling your guests should they catch their reflection in the corner of their eye.
There are countless Halloween decorations around, with skulls set on the tables and a few lanterns on the window sills you’re bound to have the party everyone remembers.
