Time is flying by and Halloween is almost here! So, it's time to get planning if you haven't already. Now, some of you might want to throw a fabulous Halloween party of epic proportions. But if you're worried about how to do this without spending a gazillion pounds (no exaggeration), then you'll want to check out the tips below:
When it comes to throwing a party for any occasion, the cost of food and drink can quickly add up and spiral out of control. However, you can significantly cut down on costs, ensure that your guests are well-fed, and keep the drinks flowing.
First of all, you can start off by purchasing finger foods, snacks, Halloween sweets, and appetisers. These are relatively affordable and you can buy all of them at your local supermarket. Also, you should be sure to buy food and drink in bulk since it tends to be more cost-effective. Not to mention, this is a great way to stock up and ensure that your guests won't go hungry or thirsty during the festivities. Before shopping at the supermarket, make sure that you secure yourself some voucher codes so that you can save even more money on your purchase.
In addition, you should avoid takeaways when planning for your party because they can quickly add up and break your budget. Unless you're planning on only having a few guests in attendance, it is much more cost-effective to grab supplies from a supermarket and create a homecooked meal for your guests.
For decorations, we recommend avoiding the craft stores and instead, getting creative and making your own! You can start out small and visit Pinterest to gain ideas and inspiration for your disturbing decor. You can also purchase arts, crafts, and decorative pieces for a bargain from stores such as Home Bargains and B&M. By doing so, you can achieve DIY decor for less than a few quid!
If creative crafts aren't your thing, don't worry! You can always grab some awesome crafts for less when you visit Codes.co.uk and use the available voucher codes for Halloween retailers such as Joker's Masquerade and Fun.co.uk. When shopping with these codes, you will get even more spooky merch for less!
Dressing up in scary costumes is one of the highlights of Halloween, but they can be incredibly costly. You can save money on Halloween costumes by shopping in local and independent stores, and by purchasing your costume as soon as possible. Or you can avoid the crowded stores altogether and shop for your costume online at HalloweenCostumes.co.uk.
If you want to party like it’s 1999 - with a twist of a Halloween theme - then you need to make sure you’ve got your entertainment sorted. Whether you’re playing music, watching a scary film or viewing a TV show, you can be sure to have wonderful entertainment available without spending much money. For music, you don’t need to hire a DJ - sign up to a music streaming service, select a Halloween playlist and you’re good to go. As for TV and films, this is the season for scary movies and TV programmes so you can find something on the TV and film schedules without having to pay a penny.
