If you are looking to throw a party for your children and their friends, but you don’t want to spend a lot of time or money on the project, we have some simple tips that can help you to economize on both effort and expense. To do this, we use the actual food as part of the decorations, so it creates not only a beautiful and memorable centerpiece, but your guests will also enjoy interacting with the display you created.
To begin with, we recommend cupcakes as the main treat. you can certainly also supply some candies or some caramel apples or candy apples, but most people eat so much candy around this holiday that they appreciate something like a little pastry. you can also combine the two by decorating your cupcakes WITH candy such as gummi worms or Orange and Black colored candies like M&Ms or candy corn. This will definitely serve to give your cupcakes an automatic Halloween theme, and your guests are sure to appreciate the effort. you can do this whether you spent the time making the cupcakes yourself, or whether your outsourced the work!To create the centerpiece we mentioned, we recommend using Halloween cupcake stands. This can be a normal stand that is decorated with Halloween cupcakes, or it can be a specific Halloween themed stand such as a haunted hour or spider web stand. both of these type of stand are available through companies such as Hallmark, or you might be able to find them at your local party store. Combined with some simple Halloween cupcake decorations, the stand will give your party not only a focal point in the form of a tower of cupcakes, it will also encourage your guests to congregate around it, encouraging them to mix and mingle and have fun!
