To use a catering service you will need to spend a little time choosing the right one. First ask your friends or co-workers for recommendations, and if that doesn’t produce any results you can always turn to the yellow pages. Whoever you select you’ll want to sample some of their cooking and once you’ve made your choice you’ll need to go over the menu and delivery schedule with them. Now that you have the food situation handled you’ll be free to turn your focus to other things and you won’t have to worry about the food on the night of the party so you can enjoy yourself more.

If hiring a catering service is not in your budget there are still less expensive ways you can reduce the stress of food preparation. Since the party will start later in the evening you could plan to serve snack type of food such as finger foods, chips, pizza, appetizers, breadsticks, vegetable sticks, pretzels etc. All these foods can be prepared easily and quickly. If you have someone to help set it all out that can help even more. More on New Years Eve.

Unique Halloween Costume Ideas

There are so many different possibilities when it comes to dressing up for Halloween. If you put your mind to it there are many things you have around the house that can make up a unique costume. Try dressing up as a head on a platter by putting a table cloth on card board and gluing paper picnic settings to it. Then put the costume on so that it goes around your neck and you can only see your head sticking out of the center. This takes very little work but the reactions you get will be amazing. There are many other ideas but the most unique often happen when you really put your mind to work seeking the rare. If you’re just looking for a cool costume, one of the hottest this year is going to be Batman Costume. Another great way to get ideas is to look at the costumes that stores are selling on the internet and think how you can recreate them at home if you’re on a limited budget.

Sexy Halloween Costumes

If you’re into sexy Halloween costumes, one of the most popular costumes is a Pirate Halloween Costume or a French maid. Dressing up like a French maid or a playboy bunny is always fun. Some of the best sexy Halloween costume ideas start with a favorite movie star.

Couples Halloween Costumes

When you and a friend or your significant other go to a party as a couple it can be fun to dress up like your favorite duo. The two of you could dress up as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance kid from the wild west. An angel and the Devil together is always a way to make a statement. Newly weds going as a bride and groom don’t always go over as well as you would think, but newlyweds “from beyond the grave” you might be able to pull off! If you want to play it safe, stick with characters like Bonnie and Clyde, Batman and Robin, or other characters who are well known.

Group costume ideas

Some group costume ideas might include rounding up your group of friends with each choosing a Star wars costume. Groups of friends dressing up as the Three (or more) Musketeers, a Harry Potter costume along with his friends, groups of Zombies, and your favorite rock band lets others at the party know you are together. Groups of witches and wizards from specific houses at Hogwarts are fun too, especially if you can get cousins together and each family dress up in costumes from a different house.

You could choose from a variety of Disney costumes such as Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends or even some of the characters from Pirates of the Caribbean movies. No matter what costumes or theme you come up with, group costumes are always a blast to think up and design together.

Whatever costumes you choose have fun coming up with your Halloween costume ideas. Put on a wig, color your hair or throw on a funky hat and see how creative you can be with your costume this year.
