Halloween Decoration Ideas

 
 

Halloween parties are all the rage and very, very popular each year. More families and organizations are holding parties in lieu of individual "trick-or-treating" in neighborhoods. The parties promote fun and safety! The fall themes and inventive costumes are always a favorite. ImpressInPrint.com has a variety of Halloween party invitations and papers that will be perfect for your Halloween party!.

An orange and black balloon arch is an impressive way to direct guests to your Halloween party area. Simply alternate black and orange balloons and attach the air or helium-filled balloons to a ribbon about every 12 inches and secure it to the ground on either side of your doorway. Remember to attach a few balloons to your mailbox or driveway area to show guests where the party is. Be sure you have enough balloons to give one to each party guest as they leave.

Crepe Paper

Another cheap and easy party decoration is crepe paper. Tie four to six pieces of alternating orange and black crepe paper from the center light fixture in the room extending to the corners and walls. Twist as you go and secure with masking tape or rubber cement, both of which are easily removed after the party is over. For an extra fancy effect, twist two different colors of crepe together. Attach a couple of orange and black balloons over the crepe paper ends to cover any tape or glue.

Hang crepe paper strips in doorways similar to the 60's beaded look. Alternate colors for more visual interest. Of course, black and orange are used but you can use various shades of yellow and some browns for fall colors as well. Balloons and crepe paper alone are enough to give your party area a fun and festive atmosphere.

Table Decorations

Personalize your party table with some homemade embellishments. Start with a tablecloth designed by anyone in your group or by yourself. Cut a length of butcher paper decorate it with colorful markers, crayons, pictures cut from magazines, construction paper shapes - let the imagination run wild!

This can be used as a party activity if you want to turn this decoration into a keepsake activity to remember all that attend your party.

For the Halloween theme, you can feature all kinds of images such as pumpkins, black cats, witches, witch hats, acorns, colorful maple leaves in all shades, cauldrons, broomsticks, and so much more! Then, sandwich the creation between a colored plastic tablecloth and a clear one, so it can be appreciated by all, yet protected from spills. It is something that can be kept and used from year to year in case you do not want to do a new one every year! Great keepsake!

Halloween Invitations: Kids vs. Adults?

 
 

There are several types of Halloween parties that you can throw, and depending on who is invited you will want to select a different Halloween theme. Children and adults enjoy different activities, different decorations, and different food and refreshments.  When you are ready to start planning your Halloween event, ask yourself first if it will be a children Halloween party, an adult Halloween party, or a mixed event for families!

Children parties are full of imagination. Drinks with gross things in them (think bloody fingers and eyeballs) make children go crazy! They will be freaked out by bowls of spaghetti worms, real zombie mud pies, and any sort of rediculous Halloween themed creation you can come up with. So long as there is enough candy and treats to go around, your party will be a success. Be sure to decorate with spider webs!

Adults have an appreciation for themed decoration, but will not be quite so impressed with your bowl of fake worms. Switch out the themed food for mouth watering appetizers. Bring in the themed fun in your Halloween plates & napkins, glasses, and drinks! Start with orange liquor, red wine, and Halloween stirrers as the basics, and add some extra flair wherever you can manage. Go for an invitation with cocktails instead of one with candy from our selection of Halloween invitations.

 

Super spook Halloween invitations will set the mood for your frightening Halloween party!

 

 
 

Halloween Legends

 
 

Halloween is one of the oldest holidays with origins going back thousands of years. The holiday (although not really fitting the definition of "holiday") we know as Halloween has had many influences from various cultures over the centuries, including the Roman Pomona Day, the Celtic festival of Samhain, and the Christian holidays of All Saints and All Souls Days.

The Celts lived hundreds of years ago in what is now Great Britain and Northern France. They worshipped nature and had many gods, with the sun god as their favorite. It was the Sun God who commanded their work and their rest times, and who made the earth beautiful and the crops grow. The Celts celebrated their New Year on November 1st with a festival marking the end of the "season of the sun" and the beginning of "the season of darkness and cold."

On the eve before their new year (October 31st), it was believed that Samhain called together all the dead people. The dead would take different forms, with the bad spirits taking the form of animals. The most evil taking the form of cats.

On October 31st, after the crops were all harvested and stored for the long winter, the cooking fires in the homes would be extinguished. The Druids, the Celtic priests, would meet in the hilltop in the dark oak forest (oak trees were considered sacred). The Druids would light new fires and offer sacrifices of crops and animals. As they danced around the the fires, the season of the sun passed and the season of darkness would begin.

When the morning arrived the Druids would give an ember from their fires to each family who would then take them home to start new cooking fires. These fires would keep the homes warm and free from evil spirits. The November 1st festival was named after Samhain and honored both the sun god and Samhain. The festival would last for 3 days. Many people would parade in costumes made from the skins and heads of their animals. This festival would become the first Halloween.

During the first century the Romans invaded Britain. They brought with them many of their festivals and customs. One of these was the festival know as Pomona Day, named for their goddess of fruits and gardens. It was also celebrated around the 1st of November. After hundreds of years of Roman rule the customs of the Celtic's Samhain festival and the Roman Pomona Day
mixed becoming 1 major fall holiday.

The next influence came with the spread of the new Christian religion throughout Europe and Britain. In the year 835 AD the Roman Catholic Church would make November 1st a church holiday to honor all the saints. This day was called All Saint's Day, or Hallowmas, or All Hallows. Years later the Church would make November 2nd a holy day. It was called All Souls Day and was to honor the dead. It was celebrated with big bonfires, parades, and people dressing up as saints, angels and devils.

But the spread of Christianity did not make people forget their early customs. On the eve of All Hallows, Oct. 31, people continued to celebrate the festival of Samhain and Pomona Day. Over the years the customs from all these holidays mixed. October 31st became known as All Hallow Even, eventually All Hallow's Eve, Hallowe'en, and then - Halloween.

The Halloween and Halloween parties we celebrate today includes all of these influences, Pomona Day's apples, nuts, and harvest, the Festival of Sanhain's black cats, magic, evil spirits and death, and the ghosts, skeletons and skulls from All Saint's Day and All Soul's Day. All of these Halloween party invitation themes are available at Impress In Print to set the perfect mood for your gathering!
