Halloween is one of the festive traditions that children and adults alike are anticipating every year, well, not until the global pandemic hit us. Maybe you were one of those who loved visiting a haunted house, attending costume parties, and trick or treating, but navigating into the new normal doesn’t have to render this year’s celebration boring, even if it means staying at home. We’ve come up with 7 ways to celebrate Halloween at home and we promise you, it’ll be far from boring.

1. Create a Halloween concoction

Kickstart the celebration by mixing up a cocktail drink to set the mood. If your idea of a perfect Halloween party is to binge-watch your favourite horror flicks while sinking your teeth into sweet treats, you need a festive drink to make this annual tradition more fun. Conventional drinks are boring, so kick them up a notch by adding some scary effects. Red wine? Come up with a gory drink for an ultimate scare-fest.

2. Style up an edible canvas 

A cake, a gingerbread, a cookie? Turn your favourite pastries into a spooky masterpiece that you and your loved ones can enjoy this Halloween. It’s going to be a family affair as everyone gets to share their creative ideas in decorating baked goodies. Oh, you don’t have to be a master baker either. You can buy some ready-to-eat confectionaries and spook them up with candy sprinkles and frosting.

Unleash the artist in you. Invite some friends over and let your artistic hands do the talking. Acrylic paint and wood rounds are all you need for this creative undertaking. Express yourself and show your sense of style.
