Great Halloween Party Supplies Make the Fun Even More Fun
What exactly is so wondrous about Halloween? Is it the chance to scare the dickens out of little people and not get frowned upon for it?
Is it the chance to magically transform yourself into your favourite hero or villain? Of course, costumes are fantastic fun for both kids and adults alike.
I am well past trick-or-treating age; in fact, so are my children, but I still love to get all gussied up in a really cool costume every year.
Even if I do not have a party to go to, it is still awesome fun to become someone else for a night and lurk behind bushes or wait on the front porch for all the goblins to come hunting their treats.
Is it the chance to get scared silly by weaving your way through the local boy scouts’ haunted house? Whether you scream or just laugh at such antics, the creative hauntings that folks can create to celebrate Halloween can be ridiculously fun and offer adults the chance to have a great time on what some folks mistakenly think of as a kid’s holiday.
All of the above stuff provides great entertainment, but the absolute best way to have fun on Halloween is to throw a party and decorate with really awesome Halloween party supplies.
A Halloween party is one of the easiest kinds of parties to host because your guests provide most of the entertainment by showing up in the required costumes.
Whether your party is for kids, grown-ups, or both, all you really need to do is have some games, a costume contest, lots of great food and drink, and – most important of all – really amazing Halloween party supplies and decorations.
Halloween party supplies are easy to find and come in a variety of price ranges. You can go to your local drug store, WalMart, and/or dollar store to find just about anything you could imagine. You can also look online for great Hallween party supplies at bargain prices.
If your house is normally pretty clean, you need to head out and get some artificial spider webs and hang them up in the corners. They usually come complete with some nasty-looking plastic spiders that you can put in them as well.
As an added touch of fun, I really like to take one of those plastic spiders and stick it in the punch bowl – what a silly way to laugh like a hyena as people ponder over whether or not to fill up their plastic cups.
And speaking of cups, cups come in all sorts of cool designs for the holiday and make great Halloween party supplies, along with themed plates and napkins. When I was little, my mom and I always used to take the candy we would be giving out and put a few pieces inside a little treat bag.
Whether you are having a party or just answering the door, little bags make great Halloween party supplies because there is a little extra thrill when the treat inside is a secret until the bag is opened.
Whatever kind of partying you choose to do this Halloween, make sure you spend a little bit of time and a few bucks to make a big hit with Halloween party supplies.
Fun Party Games:
Good Party Games With Boo Activities For Halloween
If you want to get your neighbors in the Halloween spirit, be sure to engage them in a little game known as "Boo!"
It's a popular game in some parts of the country, while in others, nobody has heard of it.
You might live in a neighborhood where you think nobody will participate in a round robin type of event as this, but you might be surprised.
Sometimes during the holidays people will step up and get involved where before they wouldn't. It's possible, anyway.
The game goes something like this, and then will be described in more detail later. You print up a few poems and instructions on colorful paper (likely, orange).
You get a treat bucket, or bowl or something and fill it with candy. You can also "Boo" people with candles, Halloween socks, and really whatever your imagination comes up with.
You "Boo" two people at a time, leaving the items anonymously on their doorstep. You leave it with the instructions and the poem and hope they "Boo" other neighbors.
Once you are done, you tape up a large "Boo!" on your door so neighbors know not to hit you up again.
Specifically, here's how it's done. Start this game around the very end of September or very beginning of October.
If you want until everyone is decorated for Halloween, you're probably too late. You want this to spread around the neighborhood and that takes time, so you want to start it right as the season starts (or a little before, perhaps) and just as people are starting to think about Halloween.
If you start too early, however, you might be out of luck as far as being able to purchase items goes.
So, it's the right time of the year and you're ready to go. Find a "Boo" poem and photocopy it. There are many variations of the poem.
Here is a sampling:
To our good friends on the street;
Our homes' locations made us meet;
You now have been Boo'd, but who would we be?
We'll never tell, it's a secret, you see.
We placed these goodies for you and yours;
Then we ran fast, after knocking the door!
Or it might be a big longer, something like this:
"The air is cool, the season fall
Soon Halloween will come to all;
The neighbors are after things to do
In fact, a neighbor brought this to you;
"Boo" is a sign of friendship power
Just hang it up and watch it double by hour;
On your front door is where it works
It wards off solicitors and scary jerks;
The treat that came with friendly note
Are yours to keep; enjoy them both;
The power comes when friends like you
Copy this and make it two;
Then others here among our friends
Will give warm fuzzies that will not end;
We'll all have smiles upon our face
No one will know who "boo'ed" whose place;
Just one short day to share your Boo
You must be quick so they don't know who;
And don't forget a nifty treat
Like something cute or something sweet;
Please join the fun, let's really hear it
And spread some "Boos" and neighborhood spirit!
Be sure to include a cute graphic of a ghost or something else that looks like it might say "Boo!"
You might want to include some details on the flyer about what should be done next, in case you think the poem itself won't be clear enough.
Then attach the poem to the goodie bag, basket, whatever you have created, and run out one night dropping your goodies on peoples' doorsteps.
If you are just getting this started in your neighborhood, be sure to do more than 2 houses.
You might find that some people don't participate and in that case, you want to have "Boo"ed enough people that you will get adequate participation.
What you're striving for is a neighborhood full of "Boo" doors by Halloween night!

Now for some of my terribly sophisticated humour – lol!
A nice young worker from the Post Office, was sorting through her regular envelopes, when she discovered a letter addressed as follows:
Upon opening the envelope, a letter enclosed told of how a little old lady, who had never asked for anything in her life, was desperately in need of $100 and was wondering if God could send her the money.
Well the young lady was deeply touched and arranged a collection from her fellow workmates. She collected $90 and sent it off to the old lady.
A few weeks later another letter arrived addressed to God, so the young lady opened it and it read
"Dear God, Thank you for the money, I deeply appreciate it, however I only received $90. It must have been those b******s at the Post Office."
