Let’s see what decorations you may take for a cool tropical party for Halloween.
Usual jack-o-lanterns are made of faux or usual pumpkins but we don’t want anything usual, so make your lanterns of tropical fruit. Watermelons, melons, pineapples, tangerines and some other fruit can be a perfect base for a jack-o-lantern. Such lanterns can be used both indoors and outdoors, for decor and centerpieces, your guests will be excited. Make scary tiki torches of skulls and put them on branches outside, take a couple of pumpkins to cut spooky tropical scenes on them, then just place a candle inside.
Skulls And Skeletons
There’s no Halloween without skulls and skeletons, they are easy to get from dollar stores and match lots of party themes. How to give usual dollar store skeletons a tropical Halloween look? Make them pirates: dress them up as pirates, tikis or hula hoop dancers and place them outside and inside for décor. Use skeletons as card holders and favors; turn life-size skeletons into voodoo witchers, it will be your take on traditional witch decor. Skulls can be decorated in bold colors, they may be turned into zombie skulls placed on branches for décor or into lanterns. Voodoo skeletons and skulls are an amazing idea for a tropical Halloween party.
Food And Drinks
Treats are an important part of Halloween décor because spooky food leaves an impression. Make cool tropical cocktails for the party and give them a haunt look with skeletons, skulls cut of limes, make giant edible octopi and voodoo doll cookies. Bake a giant Ktulhu or octopus pie to infuse the party with tropical touches. Make cards with scary names and decorate the serving trays and tables with skulls to create a mood.
