How to throw a Halloween party at your home

Leave a Comment

I only recently realized that the Halloween is just around the corner and that I have no idea whether I should celebrate it at home like I did last year or should I go out or whatever. No matter what you decide, I think you will have at least some doubts regarding the organization – for me it will definitely be choosing the outfit and all the right decorations without spending too much money. So I've divided the post into three categories – decorating the house (in case you're staying in), fun things you might do on this day and of course, some outfit and makeup ideas. 

Tek sam nedavno shvatila da nam se uskoro približava Halloween i da još uvijek nisam odlučila hoću li nešto prirediti kod svoje kuće ili ću otići s prijateljima negdje van za tu priliku. Bez obzira što odlučili, sigurna sam da ćete imati barem nekih nedoumica oko toga kako urediti kuću ili što obući, a bez da potrošite hrpu novca, stoga sam odlučila napisati jedan post u kojem ću vam pomoći (nadam se) oko svih ovih pitanja, a podijelila sam ga u tri kategorije – uređenje doma, zabavne stvari koje možete raditi te večeri te ideje za makeup i outfit. 

DECORATING THE HOUSE

Last year I went to a KIK store, which an immensly popular shop for all home decoration items, and more importantly, really cheap. I purchased fairy lights with small pumpkins, a pumpkin candy jar and fake glow-in-the-dark spiders. You can really use anything that will spice up the atmosphere and make it seem cozy and spooky. If you don't have a lot on your budget, you can just dim the lights and use aromatic candles, it will work just as fine. One of the more fun ideas is using fresh fruit and carving it into Halloween theme shapes. Last year I had a friend help me out with cocktails which was a really fun experience and everyone liked it (they were named Zombie, Dracula and so on… ). One more thing that the guests enjoyed were home-made muffins – they're easy to make and everyone loves them + you get to choose from numerous ways of decorating them, all of which are easy and affordable. 

Prošle godine svoj sam shopping obavila u KIK-u – za kojeg vjerujem svi znate – i koji je uvijek pun odličnih tematskih dekoracija po niskim cijenama. Sigurna sam da ću i ove godine navratiti i nadopuniti asortiman. Prošle godine kupila sam male lampice s bundevama, jednu prilično veliku posudu u obliku bundeve u kojoj sam držala slatkiše te umjetne pauke koji svijetle u mraku. Možete, čini mi se, zaista upotrijebiti sve i dati mašti na volju. Ako vam je budžet ograničen, prigušite svjetla i upalite mirisne svijeće, vjerujem da će izgledati jednako lijepo. Također super je ideja koristiti svježe voće, npr. mandarine, koje možete ukrasiti da izgledaju kao malene bundevice. Prošle godine sam imala sreće što mi je prijatelj došao pomoći s izradom koktela kojima smo dali nazive kao što su Zombie, Dracula i sl. Svima su se svidjeli i ispali su pun pogodak. Također, gostima su se jako svidjeli domaći muffini, koji su vrlo jednostavni za izradu, a možete ih ukrasiti na razne maštovite načine. 

ENTERTAINMENT

People usually have certain expectations when it comes to Halloween – so be prepared with a wide array of horror movies to choose from. I realized last year that not all of my friends are comfortable with watching gory stuff so perhaps prepare something that's creepy but not too bloody – anything that Tim Burton ever made will do. Movies like Scream are really fun to watch in larger crowds because you can play with guessing who the murderer is and so on. Playing horror themed video games is also fun and it requires more engagement from your guests which will certainly make them entertained and put them in the right mood. You can also just talk – which is something people often forget about nowadays – just play some eery music in the background (type halloween mix in Youtube and you'll get plenty of options) and share some scary stories from your childhood – it will keep everyone on the edge of their seats. 

Vjerujem da ljudi imaju određena očekivanja od Halloween partya koja nam se nametnu gledajući razne teen filmove i serije – prema tome, pripremite i kokice i nekoliko horror filmova po svom izboru. Naravno, nisu svi ljudi skloni gledanju prizora mučenja i sl. stoga je dobro odabrati filmove koji su creepy, a ne previše krvavi – npr. bilo što od Tim Burtona će vjerojatno proći. Filmovi kao što su Vrisak su vrlo zabavni jer se cijelo vrijeme možete igrati pogađanja tko je ubojica itd. Igranje horor video igara također je dobra ideja jer će zahtijevati veću angažiranost svih uzvanika i sigurno ih staviti u pravo raspoloženje. Možete jednostavno i razgovarati, što su ljudi, čini mi se, danas zaboravili – jednostavno pustite atmosferičnu glazbu u pozadini (upišite Halloween mix u Youtube i dobit ćete hrpu ideja) i podijelite neke od strašnih ili neobičnih priča iz vašeg djetinjstva – na taj način ćete se bolje povezati kao grupa, a i sigurno će svima biti zanimljivo slušati o pravim događajima više nego gledati film.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?


If you're staying home – don't obssess too much over what you might be wearing. Though I'm the last person who should say this because for this occassion last year I wore something that I would normally wear to a club party. Anything that makes you feel good, pretty and comfortable will do. You can maybe suggest a costume party for your guests, but be careful, not everyone will want to play dress up. You can always buy dress for Halloween – but perhaps choose the one that you might still wear on your normal days as well. I’ve stumbled unto some gorgeous dresses at Stylewe online store (visit their Pinterest here).  In case you don’t know – huge discounts are ahead of us – so perhaps save up the money and buy for Black Friday and Cyber Monday instead. 

Ako ostajete kod kuće, nemojte se previše zamarati s time što trebate nositi – iako sam ja zadnja osoba koja ovo treba reći jer sam prošle godine nosila kombinaciju s kojom bih inače išla i u neki klub. Ali ipak s obzirom da ste kod svoje kuće, opustite se i nosite ono u čemu se osjećate lijepo i udobno. Možete možda predložiti i kostimiranu zabavu, no oprezno s tim, jer nisu svi jednako raspoloženi za ovakve akcije. Dobra ideja je kupiti haljinu za Halloween – ove godine našla sam izbor lijepih komada na Stylewe online dućanu (možete ih vidjeti na njihovom Pinterestu ovdje). Za slučaj da niste upućeni, možda je zgodno pričekati sa shoppingom jer nam dolaze dani velikih popusta – tako da svoju kupnju možete obaviti za Crni Petak ili Cyber Monday.
