Lighting Is Pretty Much Everything
Ron Wendt is the founder of his own event production firm, and he’s regularly given free reign to remake sprawling private homes into party palaces. If your budget isn’t princely, there are still some small things you can do that make a big impact.
“One of the easiest ways to elevate your Halloween party is to place candles everywhere and set the lighting low,” Wendt said. “This inherently will create a dark, spooky mood, but will also create an elevated vibe.”
He also recommends ditching the orange and black color scheme we all associate with Halloween. “Use a dark velvet tablecloth and china that completes the look,” he said. “Maybe this is where a hint of orange can come in without going crazy. You don’t need to put cob webs and fake dried blood all over to have the party feel appropriate for the holiday.”
However, above all, he cautioned that your guests need to know the night’s number one rule before arriving: Costumes are required. Even if you apply all of these décor tips, your guests and their costumes add much more to the scene.
