We all know that Halloween is the holiday to dress up in scary (or not-so-scary) costumes and go from house to house collecting treats. When you give out great candy or have scary decorations around the end of October, you will certainly be remembered by trick or treaters.
Below is a list of five steps for making your apartment memorable for Halloween.
Decorations: It takes some time and thought to pull off a scary space on the outside, but consider a cozy and comfortable one on the inside that will impress guests (whether young trick or treaters or family friends). Going to a store that sells home products, like Target or Wal-Mart, will give you all of the necessities needed to pull off the best Halloween decorations for an affordable price.
Candy: From candy corn to caramelized apples to Snickers, having great candy and food is a no-brainer around the holiday time. Kids don’t forget about a place that gives away the best candy on the block. In most candy aisles during October, you can find festive colored wrapping that will reflect this spooky time of year!
Cooking: Imagine walking into an apartment with great decorations and an amazing smell of pumpkin pie! There are many great recipes for the Halloween season (such as pumpkin seeds in the oven) that will have your home smelling like Halloween time. Check out this delicious recipe for a pumpkin spice bundt cake if you don’t want to make the traditional pumpkin pie.
Movies: What’s better than a chilly night in October watching a spooky movie with your family and friends? Rent, buy or stream several scary movies and plan on watching them all! Your cozy home will be the perfect environment to watch a scary movie on the edge of your couch with blankets in tact (to hold on to tightly during the spookiest scene).
Costumes: Whether you want to take the scary route and have a bloodied body or the comedic route with a president’s face, make sure you have a good costume! Whether you are having a Halloween party with friends or want to make a lasting impression on trick or treaters, you’ll never forget about the best costume. Throwing a costume party is a great idea to have with a small group of friends at your apartment!
Follow these five steps and your Halloween in 2013 will certainly be a memorable one! Just make sure not to make your apartment too spooky; remember, you do have to sleep there every night!
