Halloween is just around the corner and I bet that most of you are excited to do the decorations and been busy thinking of a cool theme for the season. And since it’s the middle of October, I will create a month long post on how to prep and how to organize Halloween.
This post will be for those preparing for the first time preppers. Those who want to join the festivities and want to have a blast.
There are many things that you need to be aware of on October 31st. Here’s a helpful list of must-haves in order to have a happy and safe Halloween.
1. Think of a Theme
Halloween is all about the theme and decors. The scarier the better. But of course you can do some mix and match. You can go with a movie theme or go with the classic ghost and monsters. All that matters is that you make yourself unique and scary. Also, your theme should be safe for kids.

2. Prepare for snacks and treats
If you’re going for a theme this year then you have to have the right candy and treats for the kids. You can go for baked goodies or the good ‘ol candies. Make it extra cute by buying Halloween themed candies or cookies.
3. Dress up for the occasion!
Yes, costumes are a must forHalloween. But if you’re not the “dress up” type, then you could wear a mask (LOL!). But just like any other occasion, your costume should be at par with your theme. The last thing you want to do, is that you’re totally out of place because of your costume.
4. Invite friends, relatives and neighbors
If you decide to have a theme this Halloween, then it’s best if you have visitors or at least brag about it. Well it’s a way of getting friends and family over also you get to share your experience with them while prepping for the occasion.
5. Have a blast!
Well like any other occasion, just have fun! It may be your first time doing the decor or celebrating the occasion, so have fun! Give it your all and go all out!
