The Trick to Halloween Parties
With the 31st October drawing ever closer the excitement around Halloween grows evermore. Here at Neviti we are picking out our costumes and deciding what the best Halloween party would look like. So here it is, Neviti’s best Halloween party planning ideas…
For children’s parties Neviti has two themes to offer; Happy Halloween and Trick or Treat. The Happy Halloween collection has a classically spooky colour pallet of black, orange and lime green featuring the friendly faces of ghosties, spiders, bats, and pumpkins. Contrasting with the Trick or Treat collection that boasts a much more poppy colour pallet of orange, purple and navy. Trick or Treat also has a different family of spooky friends; Skeleton, pumpkin, spider, vampire, and monster.
Serve up some sweet treats with a Halloween twist, like our spider-shaped rice pop cakes. It is our favourite recipe and so easy, they only require 4 ingredients! Simply melt some milk chocolate in the microwave in 10 second intervals, making sure to stir, in a microwavable bowl. Combine with the rice pops until fully coated. Cut up some strawberry laces (these will be your little spider’s legs) and place 4 ‘legs’ on either side of the cupcake cases. Next just spoon in your chocolate rice pop mixture and add a pair of green mini sweeties for the eyes and let set! Perfectly paired with our Happy Halloween or Trick or Treat cupcake cases. If you don’t have the time to magic up these sweet treats, use our handy trick of decorating pre-made cupcakes with our Happy Halloween food picks. Perfect for adding that finishing touch to your party table snacks.
Decorating your party venue is as easy as waving a magic wand! With pre-strung bunting in our Trick or Treat collection your party room will be ready in a flash. Pair with our black ghost and orange pumpkin balloons, which make excellent party favours to send your guests home with at the end of the evening. If you want to go for decorations that all the family can do together, the Trick or Treat paper chains are perfect for keeping little hands busy. With two designs and 50 links per pack, they are full of fun to put together and look fantastic strung up around your party venue.
Need activities to keep little ones occupied? Our Trick or Treat Kit contains all the items you need for a Spooktacular time. Including; 4 masks to add to costumes, 4 hanging signs to get the party started, 4 colour-in sheets and 4 crayons for a little quiet time too. If that isn’t enough the Trick or Treat collection also features fun party bubbles, that can be used with little ones in a bubble catching game. Or if trick or treating is your favourite activity of the holiday make sure to prepare your little ones with one of our Loot bags, with options for everyone with different designs in our Trick or Treat and Happy Halloween collections. Don’t forget the classic Halloween games too like toilet paper mummies, costume contest or a pumpkin carving contest, if you don’t mind getting messy!
But that’s not all! Neviti also has an offering for teen and adult parties. Featuring dusky graveyard scenes and a spookily stylish colour pallet of orange and black, Graveyard Gathering has all your tableware and room decorations for the spooky season.
Set the perfect spooky scene by decorating your venue with the Graveyard Gathering bunting, featuring orange and grey flags with scary zombie hands and cackling pumpkins. Dress up your drinks with the bottle wrap labels, a way to add excitement to bottled drinks by convincing your guests they are drinking ‘Zombie Juice’, ‘Bats Blood’, ‘Fast Acting Poison’ or ‘Devil’s Brew’. Or use these bottle labels to create a witchy table centre piece, simply stick the labels to old empty wine bottles and add a dinner candle to the top. Allow the candle to drip down the bottle and create an aged look, try using black or red candles for a spookier look.
Serve up devilishly delicious snacks on the coordinating Graveyard Gathering plates, featuring the full moon with a cackling pumpkin in the foreground and vampire bats circling overhead. Perfect for using with the coordinating cups in the collection, which display the full moon with a zombie hand rising from the graveyard below. If you don’t want to serve up paper cups at your party but still want a cohesive theme to run throughout, our creepy zombie hand glass decorations are perfect! Just add your name with a silver permanent marker and you will always be able to find which drink is yours.
Stuck on treats to serve up at your gathering? A delicious cheese board makes the ideal table spread, that all your guests can help themselves to. Decorate your snacks and sweet treats with the Graveyard Gathering food picks, perfect for attracting your guest’s attention to the treats you want to serve. Seasonal winter berries paired with meringue and double cream make the perfect autumnal dessert and our treat tubs are the perfect size.

Girl’s Party Ideas
If you’re looking for a girl’s birthday range that doesn’t veer towards the pink and frilly, you’ll love our Tree Top Friends collection. Sweet but not sugary, the range has everything you need to create a fun themed celebration and has appeal for a broad age range, from pre-schoolers up to the difficult ‘tween’ age group. With its zingy colour palette of acid green, pink and yellow, Tree Top Friends is a bold alternative to the myriad pink ‘n’ princessy ranges out there, so if you’re looking for party ideas with something a little unusual about them, this is a great place to start.
If you’re lucky enough to be celebrating during the summer, this range lends itself perfectly to a outdoor celebration. Give your outdoor space an ‘enchanted garden’ feel with bunting, balloons and fairy lights – the range includes some gorgeous bunting featuring circular flags reading ‘Happy Birthday’ which can be attached to garden walls or fences, or strung around a parasol or tree. We love the idea of using multi-coloured paper lanterns or pom poms to decorate your outdoor space, too. Available in a multitude of colours, hang a cluster to a tree or canopy – Hobby craft does a good selection in zesty colours to match the other pieces in the Tree Top Friends range.
If you’ve got a pre-schooler with a birthday on the horizon and you’re looking for a theme that’s a little bit different from the ubiquitous pirates ‘n’ princesses, you might like to check out our range inspired by a children’s bookshelf classic. Few parents of kids in the 0-4 age range will be unfamiliar with Dear Zoo, Rod Campell’s internationally best selling story. With this impressive heritage, we were delighted to be able to see the story come to life in our party range, which features original illustrations by the author himself. It’s perfect if you’re looking for a colourful alternative to standard party ware, and includes pieces to dress your table as well as decorative accessories and stationery.
When it comes to ticking off the essentials, you’ll find everything you need to create a party table popping with colour. Bold paper plates, cups, bowls and napkins come in shades of green, red and yellow and feature instantly recognisable Dear Zoo characters; the too tall giraffe, the too naughty monkey and the too big elephant, for example. Serve the classic jelly and ice cream in a co-ordinating treat tub, illustrated with a leaping frog. On the subject of jelly you could stick with your theme and look for some animal-shaped moulds to make your desserts extra special – retailers such as Etsy and eBay are good for sourcing unusual party food supplies.
