Halloween or All Hallow’s Eve, is a longstanding Western tradition. Stemming from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, the practice and celebration has been with us for over two thousand years. From apple bobbing and trick or treating to costume wearing and parties, Halloween is a great traditional holiday that offers the chance for both a few laughs and a few scares. Start your own tradition this year by hosting a Halloween party in your home.
Halloween parties are a great way for adults and older children to enjoy the holiday without taking precious candy morsels away from the young ones. Home parties or even rented hall parties make Halloween an opportunity to hang out with friends, family and co-workers in a fun atmosphere. Parties can include cakes, games, costumes, pumpkin based beverages and food, and okay, a little candy for the grown-ups.
The most important thing to remember when organizing a Halloween party is to make sure people attend. For many, October 31st or even Halloween weekend can be a very busy time. The best way to let people know you are having a party is to send out formal printed invitations. And with Vistaprint’s line of custom printed invites, you could have your invites back and delivered in as little as three days.

Time to get those costumes and masks out a little early and snap a few pictures for upload.
Make those pumpkins shimmer with a little foil accenting to give invites eye catching sparkle. Remember, if a friend has numerous invites this Halloween, you want yours to be the one they choose. The extra effort of photo cards and foil can make all the difference.
