Steps to an amazing Halloween Party:

1. Choose free printable party invitations that go with the theme for you party. Think of clever wording to use to invite your guests. A cleverly worded invitation can pique interest in your party and give your guests a hint at what to expect! Your Halloween party invitations should include the start and end times for the party.

2. Plan ahead and find out what your guests like in terms of food, drinks and games. You'll want to have a little something for everyone to ensure all your guests have a good time.

3. Decorate your home or venue with decorations that set the tone for the event. You can make your own decorations or buy them from the store, but being the frugal-minded people we are, we recommend making your own!

4. Choose some spooky and fun music. There are plenty of CDs available with haunting Halloween sounds and howling tunes. You can also purchase MP3s through your favorite online stores like iTunes and Amazon. Here are several songs to get you started: "Thriller" by Michael Jackson; "Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett; "Ghostbusters" by Ray Parker Jr.; "A Nightmare on My Street" by D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince; "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell; "Tubular Bells Pt. 1" (Theme from 'The Exorcist') by Mike Oldfield; The Addams Family Theme; "Werewolves of London" by Warren Zevon; and "Toccata and Fuge in D Minor" composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.

5. Select food for the occasion. While any tasty treat will do, make it a personal challenge to find or make foods in colors and shapes that fit the theme. Any orange, yellow or black food will do, but don't make all of your offerings sugary. Some people prefer to eat healthy even when at parties, so add some fruits and veggies to your party menu.

6. Use disposables for easy cleanup. Disposable plates, cups and utensils can make cleanup after the party a snap. It also protects your best dishes from clumsy partygoers, especially young children.

7. Play games! Halloween is a time for fun and merriment, so have some games appropriate for each age group. Kids and adults alike enjoy costume contests and bobbing for apples. Dance contests, too, can be lots of fun. Check out Pinterest for games that you can make yourself.

8. Snap some photos so you and your guests will have candid shots and posed shots of themselves at your amazing party.
