Throw a Spooky Halloween Party

Dances, Homecomings, & School Fall Festivals

Posted by Wendy Moyle on September 13, 2011

As we head into a new school year and change of seasons, so too we enter a different phase of the social whirl. Here are some handy pages and products to help you get ready for football, Homecoming dances and parades, fundraisers and other school-related fall functions.

Banners & Signs
No matter what fall school event you’re planning, you’ll need to advertise it on campus and maybe off. Weather-resistant vinyl banners come in seven sizes and are customizable with background color and design, font and text color, and graphic design or logo at minimum. You can add a photo to many banner designs, and grommets assure you can hang them anywhere. Shop for you banners by theme, holiday or special occasion. Don’t miss our banners made especially for school, too.

You could also add event information to a photorealistic backdrop or mural background.  Depending on the size you need, you have choice of material as well: vinyl, “photo real” cardboard or mural paper. We have several fall-themed backdrops and murals to set rural scenes in gorgeous autumn color.

Carnivals & Fundraising
Fall festivals and carnivals at school celebrate back-to-school but also have a fundraising function. You will want to select fall party supplies to create the seasonal mood, but don’t stop there; also visit our school event fundraiser and carnival party pages for craft, game and prize ideas.

Fall Party Decorations
For fall-themed parties and dances, we recommend bringing the outdoors in. Start with one of the backdrops mentioned above, festoon the room in fall leaves garland and add made-to-order cornstalk standees, an arch for an entrance or focal point (such as the one pictured, or use Create-An Arch Fall), and maybe a stand-alone faux fire pit as well!

Fall leaves Gleam’N Burst centerpieces coordinate well with the foil leaves garland. Place the centerpieces on chocolate brown table covers and finish your tables with our new Harvest Basket patterned tableware or tableware value packs from catering supplies.

Football Party Decorations
Watch for opportunities to customize the football decorations you find on these pages. A big Helmet Memories mural, Custom Creation arch, and giant football and helmet standees are ready to be personalized for Homecoming parties.

If you are shopping for collegiate football party supplies for Homecoming, you should know that Shindigz.com carries football party supplies for 29 NCAA teams!

Spirit items make naturally good party favors for football party events.

Parade Float Decorations
It’s never too early to finalize plans for that fall festival or Homecoming parade float, and to start shopping for materials. Metallic fringe and floral sheeting come in all the popular team colors, and readymade football float components give you a head start on a professional look. We can even help you give the team mascot a makeover! Just start from football party supplies to jump to float decorations, mascots, fan gear and more.
