Offer your residents an opportunity to stretch their budget and recycle old Halloween costumes through a costume exchange party. This event is perfect for residents of all ages and will provide a unique pre-Halloween event that won’t conflict with their already scheduled Halloween parties.
In addition to offering a place to exchange costumes, set up a pumpkin carving station and if desired, host a contest for best pumpkin, scariest pumpkin, etc. In addition to purchasing pumpkins and carving tools, you can also provide craft supplies to “bling” out your pumpkin, including rhinestones, paint, lace, and burlap.
Serve light snacks or candy and drinks – food isn’t the main focus of this party.
