Marquee hire for parties, weddings and events

Hosting a Halloween Marquee Party with Abinger Marquees

As the crisp autumn air sets in and the leaves begin to fall, there's a magical feeling in the atmosphere that can only mean one thing – Halloween is approaching! It's that time of year when ghosts, ghouls, and goblins come out to play. And what better way to celebrate this eerie and enchanting holiday than by hosting a Halloween marquee party with Abinger Marquees? In this blog, we'll guide you through the steps to create a spooktacular and unforgettable Halloween event that will have your guests talking for years to come.

Step 1: Choosing the Perfect Marquee
The first step in planning your Halloween marquee party is selecting the right marquee. Abinger Marquees offers a wide range of marquee options to suit your needs, from cozy, intimate spaces to expansive, grand setups. Consider the size of your guest list, the location of your party, and your budget when choosing the marquee style that suits you best.
For a Halloween party, opting for a clear span marquee with large windows can add a touch of elegance while allowing your guests to enjoy the eerie outdoor atmosphere.

Step 2: Set the Spooky Scene
Once you've chosen your marquee, it's time to set the scene for a Halloween extravaganza. Decorate the interior with cobwebs, skeletons, bats, and eerie lighting. Consider incorporating themed decorations such as pumpkins, witch's cauldrons, and gravestones to create a truly haunting atmosphere.
Abinger Marquees can help you with lighting solutions to set the perfect mood. String lights, chandeliers, and uplighting can all contribute to the eerie ambiance of your Halloween party.

Step 3: Costume Contest
No Halloween party is complete without a costume contest. Encourage your guests to get creative and dress up in their spookiest, funniest, or most imaginative costumes. Offer prizes for the best costumes, and let your guests vote for their favorites. This will not only add excitement to your party but also create lasting memories.

Step 4: Themed Food and Drinks
Serve up some Halloween-themed food and drinks to tantalise your guests' taste buds. Think spooky cocktails, finger foods that resemble creepy creatures, and desserts with a ghoulish twist. Abinger Marquees can assist in setting up a catering area within your marquee to ensure that your guests are well-fed and entertained.

Step 5: Entertainment and Activities
Keep your guests entertained with Halloween-themed games and activities. Consider hiring a DJ to play spooky tunes and get everyone on the dance floor. You can also organise a haunted house experience, a tarot card reader, or even a pumpkin carving station. The key is to keep the energy high and the spookiness flowing.

Step 6: Safety First
As you plan your Halloween marquee party, remember to prioritise safety. Make sure your marquee is properly secured and that there is a clear emergency exit. If you plan to use candles or open flames for decorations, exercise caution to prevent accidents.

Hosting a Halloween marquee party with Abinger Marquees is the perfect way to celebrate this spooktacular holiday. With the right marquee, decorations, food, and entertainment, your guests are sure to have a hauntingly good time. So, get ready to create memories that will last a lifetime and book your Halloween marquee with Abinger Marquees today!
