Set the Mood- Halloween Decoration Ideas


Visitors: 449

When Halloween comes around and you want to throw a party or you are a room mother for your son’s class at school, how should you decorate? Here are some Halloween decoration ideas to get you started.

Halloween decoration ideas do not have to be complicated or time-consuming. They can also be fairly inexpensive.

You will want to decide on a theme. This will help you plan the Halloween decorating. Jot down all the ideas you have so you don’t forget anything.

Let’s say you decide on a ghost town theme. You could use hay bales to set the mood. Creepy music adds a little ghostly sound and make sure the lights are low.

The tables can be covered with brown craft paper and then add cheesecloth for cobwebs. Make luminaries from paper sacks that look like cacti or gnarled trees.

Fashion coffins out of cardboard and fill with people made from old clothes stuffed with newspaper. Make tombstones from pieces of Styrofoam and put funny names and other information on them.

Create different names for the rooms like Terrorville or Spooky Scream Center.

When you set the table, make sure you label the dishes with appropriate ghost-town-like names such as Sheriff’s Best Shot Sandwiches or Cowboy in a Shroud. If you serve punch try something like Desert Thirst Soda and for dessert you could have Ghost Town Sundaes.

Remember that part of the decorating is your costume so you may want to dress as a sheriff, ghost or cowboy. At least wear a bandana and use any extras for decorating your Halloween ghost town!
