The first thing you need when planning any party is a unique party invitation to send to your friends. Who needs paper invitations when you can send them via email? People are already addicted to the internet as it is, so why not save some paper as well? Paperless Posts has a variety of Halloween templates to choose from and the delivery of these invites is very simple.

If you want to vamp up the party décor even more then consider using burlap trick-or-treat banner such as this one found on Etsy. Burlap is not only on trend design wise, but it’s also eco-friendly. This piece can be re-used as a wonderful backdrop for future Halloween events.

No matter how old you may be, you can’t deny you love trick-or-treating or at least anything involving candy! Tell your guests to bring a bag of candy that are boxed only, no plastic out of respect for the environment. Mix the bags of candy together and hand these sweet treats out to trick-or-treaters. Don’t know what to do with all the left over candy? Visit a local food bank, homeless shelter, soup kitchen or store that sends candy to our soldiers through the program Operation Gratitude. You will feel in the Halloween spirit while also giving back!

Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays, so it’s only fitting to plan one festive party with your friends. You can still have a fabulous (and spooky) soiree while being environmentally conscious so follow these ideas to be good to our planet while having fun along the way!

Happy Hallo-Green!
