1. You’ve set the date and it’s now time to send out your invitations. This is the first impression that your guests will have of your event so it’s vital to make sure you get this right. In our software, we have invitation templates which you can personalise with your event information and there’s plenty of Halloween images and templates for you to use too. Before you start think about your theme as once you have created a design you can then easily add it to other products. Potential themes include Murder Mystery, Rocky Horror, Scary Movies, Dead Rockstar or just any fancy dress.


2. An important part of any party is the food and you can turn any food item into a spooky affair simply by adding a Halloween themed label. Name your food Halloween themed products such as Skeleton Sandwiches, Cobweb Cakes and Pumpkin Peppers.

3. Create fun themed drinks using our range of bottle labels (product codes HBL01 and HBL02). You can create your labels straight from our Halloween gallery and apply that design to these products.  Choose drinks names that will make your guests smile such as “Witches Broth” or “Vampire Blood”.


4. Halloween is all about the sweet treats, and round labels on sticks make a simple but effective cake toppers. All you need to do is stick two labels back-to-back with a cocktail or lolly stick in the middle.  It’s such a simple, quick and easy way to create your own personalised cupcake toppers at home.


5. Don’t forget to make some signs for around your home or party venue. You could create some signs for your front door saying ‘Enter with Caution’ and create scary names for different rooms such as ‘The Broom Cupboard’, ‘Spell Room’ or ‘Sleepy Hollow’.


Now you just need to get in your costume and we’re ready to party!
