How to Throw the Perfect Halloween Party

It's that time of year again, Halloween is just around the corner! We hope you're ready to get in the Halloween spirit! 👻

Follow these helpful steps to amaze your guests with the perfect Halloween party this year.

Step 1. The Invitations

This may be the most crucial step in the whole event planning process. To get people really excited about your event, it is important to give them a great first impression. Event invitations are fairly easy to make and always look great when mailed or virtually sent out. Take this event invitation as the perfect example!

Step 2. The Event Equipment, Furniture, Linens, Tents and More!

You can't throw a party if people don't have comfortable seating! Order chairs from ColdIron to ensure that your guests will be comfortable the whole night. Also, there may be a ghostly chill in the air, but you can ensure your guests are comfortable and warm with ColdIron Event Rentals tents and tent heaters! Cincinnati is prone to unpredictable weather forecasts, but don't let that interfere with your Halloween party plans! ColdIron's signature Vineyard collection is perfect to pair with spooky decorations and dark colored linens. For more information on all that ColdIron provides, visit

Step 3. The Food

Everyone knows it's not a party without great food! Don't settle for boring appetizers or basic snacks. There are tons of great recipes and inspiration on ColdIron Event Rentals' Pinterest Page. If you want to keep your guests happy, mix it up with Jack-O'-Lantern Chips & Dip and Chocolate Spider Trifles!

Don't settle for tacky paper plates and plastic silverware. Amaze your guests with elegant dinnerware. ColdIron Event Rentals can help provide you with all the plates, serving dishes, knives, forks, spoons, napkins and more that you may need. Click here to learn more.
