Halloween Party Essentials for 2023

Planning a Halloween party can get expensive when you combine the costs of Halloween decorations, pumpkins for carving, a delicious party menu, and costumes for the whole family. Why not give your credit cards a break this year? At Red Dot, we’ve got you covered with a wide selection of affordable costumes and party supplies to help you create the perfect spooktacular celebration.

To help you get started, we’ve made a Halloween checklist of everything you’ll need.

Setting the scene

When you host a Halloween party, it’s necessary that you wear a fabulous costume. Finding the perfect one can be challenging, but drawing inspiration from your favourite book, movie, or TV characters is a great start. This year, our top costume picks include the Wednesday Addams Prom DressHorror Men’s Jacket & Pant Set with Mask, and, for the little ones, the Wednesday Addams Spot Dress and Zombie Skeleton Boy’s Costume.

Party Decorations
Transform your house into an eerie haunted mansion. Hang cobwebs and spiders in the corner of your room, let tinsel decorations drape from the ceiling and go all out with festive or frightening décor to create an eerie atmosphere.


Food and drink

Candy is a Halloween party essential. Alongside other party offerings, put out several large bowls filled with your favourite snack-size treats. Include a stack of small resealable bags to create a trick-or-treating station for your guests. A great selection of treats could include Lolliland Monster Mix, Lolliland Gummi Body Parts, Swizzel Trick or Sweet, or anything that is individually wrapped.

No Halloween party is complete without a few spooky Jack-o’-Lanterns! Visit your local grocery store or farmer’s market and grab a pumpkin or two that you can carve out.
