7 Ways to Make Halloween Super Fun

Black (and white) magic. Watch and enter a wickedly charming world of stunning contrasts. Fun Halloween is a fraidy-cat’s decorating masterpiece.

Opposites attract

More fiercely well designed than frightful, Fun Halloween celebrates your love of inspired decor while still maintaining the high-spirited aura you’re dying for. Dramatic black and white dominate the scene, while [BOO] surprise pops of orange are a visual treat. A host of mannequins and hanging heads bring “life” to the party. There’s a lingering mist… and a warm, flickering glow courtesy of lots and lots of candles.

Join us in the ghostly gallery for the social event of the season. We’ll mingle and learn the easy tricks for bringing more fun to your haunted house this year.

1.  Brilliant disguise

Every party setting needs a focal point—it’s simple to transform your table. Tall, center element decorated to thrill… surround with graphic, bold black and white Designer Pumpkins, florals, and a touch of glam. Candles bring it to light. Captivating.

 2.  Light magic

Here’s where you stir up something on a totally different level. Have fun experimenting: play with shadows, depth, and color-tinted lights. Our Witch Silhouette & Fire and Ice Spotlight are a good place to start. Branch out.

3.  Planters take wing

The only thing they’ll be screaming for is more. Creative process is black-and-white… spray-painted branches give it height, crow introduces mystery and a dynamic presence. Remember to employ décor elements below table level for balance—this is a great way to do it. And don’t be afraid to display indoors or out (in a covered area).

4.  We’ll spell it out

Remember those unexpected touches of orange we talked about…?

5.  Life of the party

When guests have an eye-to-eye encounter with a lifesize figure this frightfully fab, they can’t help but be thrilled. No mannequin? No problem—dress yourself to chill, and really bring the celebration alive.

6.  Visual feast

Designer-inspired Black Raven Wreath runs rings around anything less wickedly impactful. Just hang it up, and the compliments flock in.

7.  Heads above

Nothing else will have party-goers’ eyes fixed and mouths agape like a ghostly gathering of our “floating” White with Fright Trio. The more the scarier.

  2. Beautifully done! So loved the witch with depth and branches in front with lights. Wondering what the trick is to the dry ice and how long it lasts? So fun..thank you!

    1. The length of dry ice effects will vary depending on how much water you’re working with. For example, with 5 pounds of Dry Ice in 4 to 5 gallons of hot water, the greatest amount of fog will be produced the first 5 to 10 minutes. There will be far less fog for the next 5 to 10 minutes as the water cools down and the volume of Dry Ice diminishes. As the water cools, the fog becomes wispier. We love the facts given out on this website: https://dryiceinfo.com/fog.htm. Hope this helps!
