"Sweet" Halloween Gestures
Halloween is a fun, lighthearted, and youthful holiday and you will no doubt find plenty of reasons to dress up and indulge during this festive time. But before all the ghosts, goblins, and spooky stories make their appearance, why not get your friends together for a Halloween Get-Together with some serious heart? Think about the many people in your community who will be unable to dress up and trick-or-treat this year (for financial, physical, or other reasons). During this spirited time of year, it can be easy, fun, and rewarding to reach out and make simple, sweet gestures, all while having fun! Here are some suggestions for your very own “Halloween holiday party with heart:”
Serve spirited refreshments, play some spooky music, and lay a few tables with goody bags to be stuffed with pre-wrapped candy. You can invite your guests to get into the Halloween spirit while spreading a little love. Invite guests to write encouraging words or happy sentiments on cheerful cards to be included in Halloween goody bags. You can go as a group to deliver the bags to local charities, hospitals or food kitchens.
Because this will be both a party and a charitable event, you will want your invitations to be personal and inviting Your hand-addressed invitations will look especially spirited when printed on orange-bordered correspondence cards with black ink. Here is a sample wording:
Join us in making a "Sweet" Halloween Gesture
Halloween will bring ghosts and goblins and spooky fun soon
But, before we dress up and cause a scare
Please bring a bag or two of pre-wrapped candy. We’ll be making candy bags and delivering them to local charities and homes as treats for kids and adults alike who cannot get out to trick or treat this Halloween.
Take the party to the next level by encouraging guests to come in costume or by hosting a prize for the guest who donates the most bags of sweet treats!
