Trick-or-Treating Party Invitations

Monday, September 26th, 2011

Who has their costumes ready for Halloween this year?  It’s time to start planning your Halloween parties, if you haven’t already.  Trick-or-treating parties have become very popular in the last few years – which are typically made into a neighborhood get-together which allows the kids to have fun trick-or-treating with all of their neighborhood friends and some great socialization for the parents!

Halloween night can be a stressful time for some parents, with having to rush home from work in time to get the kids dinner and dressed in their costumes all before dusk.  Having a group Halloween party can really add some ease into a parent’s day.  Being the host, serve up dinner for the kids of mac & cheese and hot dogs, mini pizzas, spaghetti – or anything easy.  All the kids can eat a small dinner before they head out to go trick-0r-treating.  Let the parents munch on appetizers and have a beer or two, as well.

When ready for trick-or-treating, choose a group of parents to accompany the kids trick-or-treating and let a group of parents stay behind to give out candy to the other trick-or-treators.  You can even swap out the groups so that everyone gets a chance to trick-or-treat or give out candy.  Some neighborhoods will make this a fun yearly event and not only give out candy to the kids, but will hand out jell-o shots and beer to the parents accompanying the kids…totally a fun event for all!  When finished, bring all the kids back to the house to have their candy checked and to let them see how much candy they received!  The kids can play and eat their favorite kinds while the parents relax with their neighbors and friends before heading home for the night.

When planning your trick-or-treating party, make sure you set the scene with a fun, spooky or ghoulish trick-or-treating party invitation.  Our Halloween party invitations feature a variety of styles, from creepy to cartoony!  Choose from kids dressed up in costumes,  pumpkins, mummies, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, digital photographs of your favorite trick-or-treator, witches, spiders and open houses.  Mail your Halloween party invitations out about 2-3 weeks before your event, to make sure everyone can attend.  And remember, the more the merrier.  The more adults, the safer the kids are during the spooky Halloween night!
