To make your party a success, be sure to remember the following;

– if you plan to party into the night, be sure to inform your neighbours to potentially expect noise and ghostly comings and goings, or they may feel like the walking dead in the morning

– grenadine sugar syrup is a Halloween must buy as it can be used to give practically any food or drink a bloody makeover (and it tastes pretty good too!)

– always be careful if using fire e.g. in pumpkins near the door as these could be dangerous. Never leave an open flame unattended but ideally use LED candles such as these for a safer option with the same result that will last all night

– For children’s parties, make sure you prepare some ghoulish goody bags. Not only will these give your child’s friends a gift from an amazing party, it also means you can give away some of the leftover party food (if there is any left by the end of the evening!)
