Planning a Halloween party
By Kathryn Swartz
Trick or Treat time is nearing! Because All Hallows’ Eve is midweek this year, you can be sure the weekend before will be packed with holiday parties full of spooky, scary revelers of all ages. If you’re planning your own costume-clad affair, here are some stress-free best bets for Halloween party planning.
Halloween is nothing if not a good opportunity for a massive sugar rush. Stock up on sweets delivered right to your door (for free!) with eligible purchases from Walmart.com. Low price points mean you can present your ghouls and ghosts with an assortment of treats.
Oriental Trading and similar retailers are great low-cost options for décor. Browse the site for a la carte options like cups, plates and tablecloths, or choose an available theme, such as zombies or a monster bash, to quickly select coordinating tableware and decorations. Make a stop at OT-sponsored FreeFunHalloween.com to snag some free printable pumpkin stencils if you’re planning a carve-off, or just hit the free recipes for additional sweet and savory dishes. Speaking of jack-o-lanterns, if you trust another to select your shape and size, consider ordering some pumpkins from Peapod.com to save some time and energy loading and unloading your trunk.
And, of course, you’ll need something to wear as host, too. Offering getups for everyone, including infants, kids, teens, adults and pets, CostumeDiscounters.com’s wide selection and varying price points makes it a great option for all-in-one outfitting.
With so many budget-friendly options, there is really nothing to fear when planning for all of your Halloween festivities.
