Halloween Party Tips – Lights

There is something about this holiday that we all have to admit we love, whether that be the dressing up, the scaring younger people or maybe just the amount of sweets you are (technically) allowed to consume without feeling guilty!

When it comes to this time of year, some people really enjoy decorating the house (and for some, the garden).  We know this all looks great for the evening in question, but have you had your practice run? Are you sure that those pumpkins light up automatically and that the skeleton will talk when someone walks by…

Of course, this night is all for a bit of fun, but we can’t help but think about the drain on your electric. (We are the energy company with a heart!).

Here we have a variety of lighting choices you can use that are safe, fun and good for your pockets!

String Lighting

String lighting is available for every budget and every decorating idea.  In fact, there is so much choice of string lighting available, you may have seen people often choose to wrap their house and garden decorations in it!

String lights fit the theme brilliantly and can also be good to your pockets! There are numerous types available, from solar panel versions that often the light throughout the day, battery powered and of course, plug in string lights.  Using string lights is a great idea as these pretty little lights can be used at your disposal from rooftops to inside your pumpkin.

Thinking of having a Halloween party? Well great news, string lights can be used inside too!  Just make sure that you have no loose wire to avoid any trip hazards.  String lights can elevate a centre piece and can make quite a statement in big vases.  Why not try some pumpkin string lights around your windows to really suit the event.

Spot Lights

Another creepy way to illuminate your home is to make your lighting look like spider’s webs.  This can be done with various wire-made lamp shades or easily by using spot lights.  Spot lights add depth and can create many interesting angles to make your ‘spider’s web’ completely unique.  Use different intensity spot lights with a good energy rating and you can successfully create the scene knowing you are doing so whilst being energy efficient.

Maybe you are planning on having a spider hanging from your walls or a skeleton in a particularly position.  Spot light them! This will add an increasingly eerie feel if your main lights are off, whilst also drawing your visitors attention to your hard work! Sport lights can help to give your Halloween theme tell its own story, giving you more time to be creative with your Halloween scares!

Hanging Lanterns

Why not try to hang various different Halloween themed lanterns around your home?  Different lanterns around the home or garden can create the ultimate Halloween atmosphere. Once again, it is very important that you ensure all wiring is kept covered and avoiding any trip hazards.  Once you have the safety aspects covered, you will be able to create the perfect venue for any Halloween party.  Spooky but in an economical and safe way!

By doing this or hanging fake cobwebs on your light features can also create the perfect atmosphere.

Keeping in mind safety and creativity, you will be able to light up your habitat for Halloween in a spooky, yet safe and economical way.

Being creative with your lighting can turn boring Halloween decoration into the perfect creepy scene, making your Halloween party much more realistic and enjoyable.
