We celebrated our Office Party on Wednesday because we have no patience and did not want to wait till Friday. We challenged ourselves to throw a Halloween Office party for less than $100. So, how did we do?
Hanging Swirls. These took a surprising amount of time to set up, but it was well worth it! We really enjoyed the way they looked when it was all said and done.
Scene Setter with a Personalized Halloween Banner. We really enjoyed our pumpkin scene setters, because we feel pumpkins are an integral part of Halloween. (I really enjoy the pumpkin that has Boo carved into it.) However, we needed a little more to fill up our white space. A banner is a perfect way to fill in while adding to the theme of the party.
Halloween Fright Tape. We had a lot of tape to work with so we started by criss-crossing across the display cases. Two personal favorites, first the “Caution: Zombie Zone” in front of our cutouts of Elvis and Mick Jagger. I still laugh thinking about it. Secondly, because I have the maturity of a two year old, the “Enter if you Dare” tape over the bathroom door makes me laugh.
Halloween Confetti and Halloween Centerpieces. We think the confetti and centerpieces go really well together. Naturally, we were happy with the way this turned out. (And I know you want to try some of those Ghost Cookies. So good.)
Food: We didn’t ask everyone to bring in food for the party, but given the opportunity to bring donuts, a few souls jumped at the opportunity. We also had a salad and pizza. You can see Amy’s commitment to the Halloween punch, making it in costume!
We spent under a $100 and all the decorations looked good. We didn't look too bad in our Halloween Costumes either. We told the office if they didn't dress up they would not be getting any of the food, and it worked. Sometimes you have to add a little bit motivation to get your guests to dress up.
