Did You Know?
- Halloween Trivia: Many games historically played at Halloween are kinds of divination. An old-fashioned Scottish method of divining someone's potential wife or husband is to cut the skin of an apple in one long piece, then throw the peel over your own head. The peel is believed to drop the same shape as the first letter of your future wife or husband's name.
- DIY Costume Idea: Hear No, See No, Speak No Evil - sport very dark sunglasses and big earmuffs. Put a piece of tape over your mouth. Write on your shirt "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil."
- Halloween Trivia: While eating dinner on Halloween, the Africans transported to United States as slaves, would eat in complete peace and quiet to encourage spirits to come to the table.
- DIY Costume Idea: Construction Worker - slip on trousers or overalls, a plaid work shirt, work boots, a tool belt with tools, plus a hardhat. Hold a metal lunch box to hold your candy.
- DIY Costume Idea: Bob's Big Boy - Make an oversized hamburger with cardboard mache. Dress in white overalls coated with crimson checks, steel toe work boots, and gel your hair up to a point and droop to the side.
- DIY Costume Idea: Dark colored Queen - dress in a long black colored dress (get an aged prom or bridesmaid gown and dye it jet black). Include on a tiara and charcoal horns, big earrings and jet black eye make-up.
- Halloween Trivia: To avoid being recognized by a soul, Christians would dress yourself in masks and halloween ensembles to conceal themselves, pursuing the ignited candles set by other people to help their journey for worship the day after. Currently, this practice continues to be perserved by boys and girls guising (trick or treating).
- DIY Costume Idea: Anna Nicole Smith - Wear skimpy clothes with heavy reddish lip stick and blonde medium length hair. Enhance your bust as necessary. Hold diet pill bottles.
- DIY Costume Idea: American Flag - dress in a azure shirt and crimson pants. Slice stars (50 if you can) out of white colored posterboard and stick or attach these to your shirt. Paint or get white-colored tape to make light stripes on your jeans. (Optional: Color the face light blue with one big white-colored star in the middle of your mouth.)
- DIY Costume Idea: BP Oil Worker - Look for a worker jumpsuit and affix a patch on the chest area saying "BP Oil." now take some vegetable oil and color it dark colored with food coloring, dump it all around the suit and let it dry. Go with black color make up to give yourself dingy skin.
- DIY Costume Idea: CD Burner - Simply tie a computer CD about your throat and take a lighter. If someone asks what you are, hold the lighter up to the CD.
- DIY Costume Idea: Bobby Soxer - dress yourself in a light short-sleeve button-down blouse, poodle skirt with crinoline, wide belt, bobby socks, and saddle footwear. Neck tie a chiffon scarf about your neck, put on poodle glasses, and a 50s style (beehive, pixie or pig tail).

: Hello everyone :] I am new here and you guys are awesome and very inspiring.As the season approaches, I'm getting more and more anxious as I plan to host my very first Halloween party! It's at my boyfriend's house, where he has recently done a lot of renovation (with more to come before the party), so it will be kind of a grand opening of sorts as well as being a Halloween party. I'm feeling a bit jumbled... I have amassed a modest collection of Halloween crap over the years and I'm sure you all can understand the lack of restraint you feel when it comes to seeing new stuff out on the shelves... "but it's only once a year!" Let's just say I've started hunting for props and supplies really early this year. My dilemma is, do I really need a theme? Would it look a complete mess if I just had random Halloween decorations
? I have a few bigger props I'm getting which I will post when I am not at work. So, any ideas? Should I section themes off by room? Should I not worry about having a theme at all?LamiaFudge:
Welcome! I did a theme last year but usually don't do one. I really can't afford to buy new decorations each & every year. We have props that were a lot of work & I can't imagine not putting them out every year because it doesn't go with a "theme". My invite is usually pretty unique & I did kind of go with a vampire one last year. Thinking about a zombie invite this year and may just do a graveyard
to go with. Most everything else will be from years past. Hope this helps!RhiannonDonovan:
My hubby and I didn't really have a theme for our past two parties. We just kind of put out what we had as far as decorations and grouped things together that made sense. This year I'd like to go for a more vintage/gothic theme. I'll get a few new decorations of course...but I pretty much have what I need. I'll just change the way I display things. So much fun to plan.One thing I've started doing this year to help me keep it all organized is, I've been writing down exactly what I want to do in each room. That way when I start going through my stuff I'll know what I need to get and what I already have. It can get a bit crazy during the planning process!OwenTart
