DIY Halloween from the Beam Team!

Halloween is days away and we have a few tricks for the cutest DIY Halloween party on the books!

Let’s start with the games.

Mummy bowling is a kid favorite and easy for you to put together. Purchase the plastic bowling pins at any party store and wrap them in toilet paper. Construct the alley lanes with cardboard boxes and voila ! Mummy Bowling is a chilling good time.

High Beam Hint : Put a little piece of tape in the bottom of each bowling pin so they will stay in place but are easy to knock over with the ball.

What's a Halloween party without a bean bag toss? Make this extra halloweenie by making your bean bags out of ghostly fabric. Carve pumpkins, place them on hay bales and toss!

High Beam Hint : To keep this game for Halloweens to come, use no-mess plastic carving pumpkins and store after your party.

Halloween decorations are the most fun. Who doesn’t love a good spook? Set up a little graveyard to accompany direction signs so your guests feel at home and can get around your space with ease.

High Beam Hint : Light up the grave stone with battery powered uplighting and for an extra spooky look add a green filter and a little bit of dry ice behind the stone.

The un-dead don’t eat very much but your human guests will get hungry.

An easy go to is arranging pepperonis on a pizza to look like fingernails – Pizza Fingers are a little zombie’s favorite food group. Peanut butter and jelly spiders are creepy - crawly and yummy. Arrange sections of a sub-sandwich like a giant snake around your food table and watch it slither away.

High Beam Hint : get “punny” with naming your menu. “BOOnana pops” are much scarier than chocolate covered bananas.
