It’s almost that time of year – when the ghosts come out, headless horseman ride and all sorts of goblins are on the loose. In other words, it’s time for a London Halloween day party! What kind of party do you want to throw? Do you want to celebrate the Mexican Day of the Dead with colorful and traditional Dia de Muertos costumes? Would you rather celebrate the traditional American All Hollow’s Eve from olden times? Maybe you want to throw an adult super hero party. Whatever you want to do you need some guidelines on how to put together the best Halloween Party in all of London.
Planning Your Halloween Party
Here are a few ideas for planning your party:
- Get a dry erase board and list – date, time, place
- Generate options for the theme
- Costumes or not
- Who to invite
- Create Invitations – out two weeks before party and include if it is costume expected
- Food to be served – catered? Menu?
- Drinks to be served
- Décor – carved pumpkins
There are other factors that can go into planning your London Halloween day party, but we will concentrate our planning on these types of factors. We are especially interested in themes, food and décor.
In considering your possible themes, food and décor, you should first consider whether you wish to hire professional help such as a caterer, party director or photographer. If you decide to hire a professional you should consider what each type of professional can do. For instance, a caterer can handle food, theme and décor if they are a full-service caterer. The party director can handle themes and décor but would have to hire a caterer to handle the food. Both a caterer and party director would have to hire a photographer.
If you choose to hire a professional, your best all round choice would be to hire a full-service caterer. This person would be able to provide not only your menu, but your theme, your décor, costumes, invitations, tables and table settings, décor and hiring a photographer if one is desired. If you really want to have the best ever – or even best this year – London Halloween day party you will want to hire a full-service caterer.
