1. Set the Date and Time
Let's get this party on the calendar! Pick a date that suits everyone's schedule. If Halloween falls on a weekday, no problemo! You can celebrate on the nearest weekend for maximum monster merriment.
2. Spookify Your Invites
Time to send out the ghostly summons! Grab or create some eerie invitations that scream Halloween. Don't forget to include the date, time, location, and a special note about costumes. We want everyone looking boo-tiful!
Want to go digital? Set up a Facebook event! With digital invites you can keep your guests up to date with the plans and share ideas in one place. Social media event spaces also give their host the opportunity to thank everyone for attending and share a few pictures of the fun. It's a great way to show appreciation and keep the positive energy going!
3. Create a Haunted Haven
Transform your space into a creeptastic wonderland! Cobwebs, pumpkins, skeletons, and eerie lights – go all out! And don't forget a photo booth corner for epic memories (We would love for you to tag us @hannahsgamesco !)
