For the past four years, we have been working together with a very special family to create a Halloween scene like no other. We started somewhat small (seen on our post Haunted Graveyard) and have grown exponentially each year to include large rented props, sound, fog machines, loads of lights, and the scariest characters we can find (Our Haunted Circus and Hollywood decor can be seen here and here). Last Halloween, we had the opportunity to not only decorate this family’s front yard (seen here) with a fabulous Haunted Pirates scene but also plan and execute a party to follow this theme. Coming up on the Fall season, we are super excited to get the opportunity to work on this project again. This year, we will once again be creating a concept and bringing it to life in this family’s front yard for all to see, and will also be planning a Halloween party in the same theme for their guests to enjoy.

With this large of a project, we like to get started early to make sure all bases are covered, our clients are beyond happy, and each guest is wowed. We begin with coming up with a theme to make the decor at this particular house different from all of its surrounding neighbors. We like to create something original that people will come from all over the area to see. This year, we have collaborated with our client to once again come up with three equally awesome themes (in our opinion) and have met with the family to discuss the options and decide which would be carried through. Although our clients have already made this tough decision, we would like to put it out to you as well. Check out these three concepts, and let us know which option you would choose.

#1 Once Upon a Halloween: This idea was one we proposed last year as well and one that you all and our clients loved. It just didn’t quite make the cut, so we are bringing it back. With shows like “Once Upon a Time” and all of the fairy tale remakes coming out in the cinema, this seems like the perfect time to create a haunted fairy tale scene. Although each story has their villain, creating an overall dark feel will make it all come together. Add moss and decadent items to an event space along with candy “poison apples” and your guests will believe they are actually in their own haunted fairy tale.

#2 Greek Mythology (with a haunted twist): The Greeks have been known for many amazing things including the Olympics, great food, and some crazy spooky stories (or myths). Why not turn this into a totally unexpected Halloween theme? We would even incorporate some of these other aspects of Greek tradition into the party; Olympics activities for the kids and delicious kebabs for dinner. Stone men and Sirens may have to make an appearance as well.

#3 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory: Anyone else completely obsessed with this movie / famous Roald Dahl book? We can’t think of anything more Halloween than tons and tons of candy, and this direct quote, “Nobody ever goes in and nobody ever goes out” … spooky right? Fizzy Lifting Drinks and “chocolate river” milk or a chocolate fountain will make all of their guests happy as well as the arrival of a few Oompa Loompas.

Vote below … Which of these three themes would you like for us to create this Halloween? Leave a comment on our blog or on one of our social media accounts (links at the top of the screen). We will be posting the results as well as the client’s decision this coming Friday.
