Plan a Vampire Theme Event

Posted by Wendy Moyle on August 31, 2011

We know that vampires nowadays are romantic figures and popular year ‘round, but we still appreciate them especially near Halloween. We also know they tend to love the good life! So when we do the monster math, it comes to this: You can combine romance and easy elegance with a hot vampire theme event for Halloween, a fall fundraiser or a Homecoming dance.

Past and current vampire lore is full of places and objects from which you can derive a theme: New Orleans settings, full moons, and red apples, just to name a few. Visit Vampire party supply decorations for ideas. Then choose your colors! A formal black-and-white color scheme with red accents is dramatic, as is red-and-black with accessories of gold. You might also stray from tradition to evoke, say, a forest at midnight with dark brown and cool greens.

Invitations & Banners: Announce the Date with Damask
To our undying delight, we offer damask designs to match any vampire theme event plan, depending upon the mood you wish to set.

The Fangtastic invitation brings full-on camp, complete with blood and fangs dripping upon a gray-on-black damask pattern. Look for balloons and tableware in this design also.

Formal damask personalized banners and invitations can be customized with your wording and choice of font plus 36 color options for text, pattern and background.

Enchanted Forest Elegance invitations display beautiful, delicate green damasks on dark brown, and you can customize matching banners with a photo or logo.

Glampire Party Supplies: Just the Glam, Ma’am
Vampires and romance meet in a new, unexpected and posh presentation with new Glampire party supplies, as seen in the photo above. Decorate a large vamp venue in arches and columns of red roses or glitter fabrics, black balloons and a few bat silhouette cutouts for good measure.

Glampire lighting calls for lots of candlelight. Be sure to check out our selection of LED candles.

Finishing Touches: Bring Humor to the Table
Of course we know that neither romantic nor elegant equals stuffy. Bring a couple unexpected and humorous touches to a vampire theme event via your bar and tables. They’ll be talking about them for days!

  • Wrap Vampire Elegance or other Halloween personalized bottle labels around bottles of the “house red” or other potions of your choice.

  • Drip melted red wax or crayons on white candles to make them look like they are bleeding. (Put “safely melt crayons for dripping” in your search engine to find out how.) Place the “bleeding” candles in our black candelabras for table display.

  • Make old fashioned Halloween party favors, such as wax fangs, a part of place settings.

  • Stock the bar with syringe shot glasses, punny cocktail napkins and other Halloween tableware items.

    Love In All the Wrong Places – Dreadful Valentine’s Day Decorations

    Posted by Wendy Moyle on February 10, 2011

    If you’re inclined to put a twist on the traditional Valentine’s Day party – or even to mangle it completely – you’ve come to the right blog! Here are a few ways to pull the hearts-and-flowers routine a bit out of the mainstream with Halloween decorations and other theme party supplies.

    St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Party

    Suggested Slogan: “Guns, Not Roses”

    Create a style reminiscent of the movie Some Like It Hot, whether you are from Chicago or not! Pick up big city backgrounds, flapper standees and other theme party decorations and wearables from the 1920s party supplies store for a gangster-themed party.

    Include a Valentine-related password to your “speakeasy” on invitations.

    Present attendees with hot pink gangster guns and other 1920s party favors that can be used as props at the party. Use gangster photo frames as prizes for the best gangster costumes. Customize labels with your party colors to create “bathtub gin” bottles.

    Twilight™ Party

    Suggested Slogan: “BELLA!!!”

    Find Twilight™ Eclipse, New Moon and Moonlight decorations, favors and tableware in Vampire party supplies to suit any Twilight fan.

    Consider creating your own apple-shaped invitations for this theme.

    We’re inclined to favor a more Gothic look in party decorations for this theme: black-and-white with an occasional dramatic red flourish. Try placing a Moonlight Revelers standee against a dark backdrop, and use a bowl or acrylic ice bucket filled with apples as a symbolic centerpiece atop mostly black table décor.

    Don’t forget Claire de Lune.

    Anti-Valentine’s Day Party

    Suggested Slogan: “Love Stinks”

    Celebrate independence and singlehood by turning Valentine’s Day on its head! Start with the pinks in our Martini line of decorations and tableware from Cocktail Party Supplies coupled with plenty of black in your color scheme.

    From there, add “statement” pieces from Halloween decorations. Our realistic crow, for example, makes a substitute for the bluebird of happiness. Fill vases with black silk roses, or hand single roses at the door. Finish with black balloons.

    Host a Twilight Party with Vampire Decorations!

    Posted by Wendy Moyle on June 23, 2009

    haunted-house-decorationsTwilight, New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Meyer, plus the movies based off of them, have become a huge sensation! If you’re a Twilight fan and so are your friends, a Twilight party with vampire themed party supplies will be a hit! This party isn’t just great for Halloween. It’ll be fun for birthday parties or other celebrations! Here are our tips for creating a fun Twilight themed party!

    Welcome guests to your party using a personalized vinyl banner. Our Haunted Cemetery Personalized Banner is a great choice. Our banners are printed with your custom wording on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and are available in several different sizes to fit your needs.

    Create a focal point for your event and set the whole scene using our Haunted House Decorations. The Large Haunted Mansion Silhouette is 10 feet high and 9 ½ feet wide. The Small Haunted Mansion Silhouette is 46 ½ inches tall and 4 feet 7 inches wide. Add the flying bats and a Gargoyle Tombstone to complete the scene. These decorations are awesome for using at Halloween too.

    Decorate your party space using black crepe roles or cob web print gossamer decorating material. Create swags, grapes and columns with the materials to further the look of a haunted home of a vampire family.

    Use black balloons to add some extra dimension to your decorations. Create balloon bunches of odd numbers using black helium balloons and secure them with black curling ribbon to the backs of chairs or to black foil balloon weights. For an extra special touch, add a gold or silver crescent moon mylar balloon.

    Add a spooky accent with cob webs and for a final touch create a garland of string ‘em bats around the room.

    For your party food, cover tables with black plastic table covers and add some silver metallic star confetti. In the center of the table add black silk roses or our flaming table torches for an eerie effect. Use black or silver plastic tableware and coordinating cutlery to serve your snacks on.

    For a fantastic party favor, hand out glow in the dark vampire fangs to guests at the door and they can use them during the party and for fun times to come.
