Halloween kicks off a seasons full of holidays, traditions, and fun-filled events. It’s one of the easier holiday parties to design as just a few key party rentals can be used to transform your home or venue into a stylized Halloween celebration. Whether you’re planning an elegant, silly, or traditionally spooky event, the following versatile items are just a few must-haves.
Black & Orange Linens:
Black and orange is the symbolic color palette for Halloween. With linens taking up so much surface space, they are perfect to utilize for your color scheme. Keeping the linens uniformly black can give a sophisticated look while mixing black and orange linens create a more fun and exciting tablescape. Chevron linens are the perfect pattern for adding updated styles to your linen selection.
Beverage Dispensers & Buffetware:
The buffet table is where a lot of the creativity can happen. Colorful drinks can be mixed using different liquors and food coloring. Clear beverage dispenser rentals allow guests to see the curious colors- don’t forget to add your potion and poison labels!
If you have Halloween-themed plates, Halloween is obviously the best time to use them. However, if you’re planning an inspired menu, simple ceramic tray rentals are the best backdrop for your dishes. Check out this great (and easy!) recipe for ghost meringues.
Candles & Lighting:
Nothing sets a spooky ambiance like many flickering candles or candelabras. You can set up lanterns and jack o lanterns inside and outside of your venue to manage the amount of lighting in various areas. Make sure they are out of reach of children if there are any at your party.
What really makes a Halloween event are the details you put into your own venue design. Props like pumpkins, spooky signage, and black & orange décor go a long way. Looking for more party ideas?
