When witches go riding,
And black cats are seen,
The moon laughs and whispers
Tis near Halloween.

Come 31st October and people will be busy celebrating this special day.
Did you know that this day is considered to be the second most successful holiday after Christmas? Children and adults alike, wait eagerly and when it comes 'hell' breaks loose. Costume parties are held in all households. Even you would be all geared up and sending invites. Here are some ideas to help you to make your cards special.

Invitation Tips

Preparing the party cards gives you the opportunity to let your imagination run. You can either buy the store cards, use your creativity, and make your own cards. While making the cards, make sure that you use black and orange, the two most important colors assigned to this festival. Black symbolizes darkness, while orange symbolizes the harvest season.
There are certain points which you need to keep in mind while deciding on the invitation wording.
  • Think or look up for some Halloween quotes or poems which your guests will love. Make use of your imagination, it should be fun as well as scary.
  • The wordings should match with the main theme of the party. If the theme is say, 'insides of a human body', then the invite should not be about graveyard.
  • The wordings should tell the guest what they are to expect at the party. And also mention where and when, the party is going to be organized.
  • Mention whether the party is only for adults, or whether children are also invited.
  • Do not forget to talk about the best part - the food and drinks. All these can be mentioned in a "spooktacular" manner and made more interesting.
