Halloween is one of the greatest times of year for party goers and The Oriental Trading Company is well aware of that fact. Halloween partiers are constantly looking for Halloween themed items to jazz up their decor and make their parties unique. From exciting basics to the more unusual party favors, Oriental Trading Company is the place I go to get what I need for the ghoulish party season.

One of the coolest categories they have covered (no pun intended) involves great ways to throw a spooky party.

They have quite a few to b2ap3_thumbnail_ot3_20151014-002300_1.jpgjazz up your Halloween table and some of my personal favorites include the Halloween Silhouette Tablecloth. This awesome tablecloth just screams to your guests that they are attending a Halloween party! Haunted houses, black cats, witches and bats line the edges and really make your table pop! No worries though! If you like a more laid back tablecloth without the decor along the edge you can just go with a seasonally colored orange tablecloth. Oriental trading company has you covered both ways.


Another really cool aspect of any great Halloween party is really cool seasonally themed plates! OTC offers up these really cool Spider Web Dessert Plates for your evil enjoyment!


Moving over to the kid’s Halloween parties, you are going to need some party favors. I absolutely love to give the kids something to occupy their minds and hands when they are at my party. It tends to keep things going and avoids boredom. (Things which can literally ruin Halloween party plans!)

Here are some really awesome and inexpensive party favors from Oriental Trading Company that will be a huge hit at your party but not to your party budget:

Cool Ghoulz Tattoos - These cool temporary tats will keep the kids giggling and busy for hours and they are extremely easy to wash off. For the money, these are my favorites because they keep entertaining the kids even after you finish putting them on.

Jumping Spiders - Spiders that jump might creep you out but that is exactly why they are so popular. Kids will spend hours on the floor making these colorful spiders jump around. Just be sure you are good about picking them up off the floor or you might get a surprise later on!

Mini Jack-O’-Lantern Bubble Bottles - Bubbles are a hit no matter what kind of party you are throwing and Halloween is no exception. Shaped like miniature pumpkins, you will have hours of fun watching the kids blow and chase spooky bubbles.

Halloween Whistles - For those that are brave enough for the noise, Halloween whistles are the ultimate party favor. I would not suggest these for those that are sensitive to noise, but they are a great deal of fun outside!


Finally, you simply have to give out candy at your Halloween party. It is part of the experience and can actually be rather
expensive. Oriental Trading Company has this covered too, with a wonderful deal on their Halloween candy. Pick from Kids Combo Candy Mix or the Nestle Kiddie Carnival Candy Assortment and skip the trip to the store. You can save money and get it all in one nice neat package from Oriental Trading Company!
