We hosted a Halloween dance last year and it was fun! We had zero budget so everything had to be dollar store or borrowed. We had a youth council that got to plan and decorate. They rock. Here is what we can up with.
Helium was not an option last year so we had to improvise. The teens had to walk through all the black low hanging balloons to get into the dance, they had glow in the dark skeletons so they could kinda see where they were going.
Doing things on the cheap is not always easy but (this one wasn’t finished) we wrapped all these branches with purple and orange lights. We had a dozen of these trees. They were also lightly sprayed with white lights so they could glow in the black light.
We had a picture place at the entrance so they could enjoy taking pictures with their friends.
This spider was at the entrance….so easy and cheap. The legs are wrapping paper rolls wrapped in a green streamer. The body is a aluminum baking dish from dollar tree that has black paper mogpog onto it. Black balloon mogpog for the head. Easy and cheap.
I wish I would have gotten better pictures but it was amazing. We broke records and had 560 teens at this dance! The average amount of people that attend those dances is in between 250-300! Everyone had fun. Those who didn’t want to dance there was a game room with a air hockey table, Foosball table, and ping-pong. Hope you enjoyed it!
