      Chicagoland’s Mobile PYOP Studio Let us bring the party to you!

      http://www.funkyfriedas.comHalloween is a favorite holiday for me. I’ve

      always loved autumn with it’s chilly nights, clear skys, and

      crunching leaves underfoot. It’s a great time for a really fun party,

      one where even us adults can let down our hair, dress up in costume

      and have as much fun as the kids. Here are a few ideas to help create

      the proper Halloween atmosphere in your home:

      The Psycho Bathroom

      I did this last year, and it was a huge hit! First, take down your

      regular shower curtain and replace it with a cheap, white, vinyl

      shower curtain liner. With a sharp knife, make lots of slashes in the

      liner. Mix up some fake blood from Kayro Syrup and lots of red food

      coloring, and sling it around the tub, up the shower walls, and on

      the curtain. Smear some of the fake blood on a large, plastic butcher

      knife (can be found in any store carrying Halloween costumes and

      props) and lay it in the bottom of the tub. For added coolness, hang

      a “Bates Motel” towel on the towel bar. I’ve seen these manufactured

      professionally, but couldn’t find them last Halloween. Instead I

      bought a cheap, white towel, black fabric paint, and painted the

      words on myself. You should have heard people shrieking when they

      went into the bathroom!

      Wormy Punch

      I made a neon green punch for the punchbowl. I used Midori melon

      liquor, pineapple juice, and 7-Up for mine, but this can also be done

      in a non-alchoholic version using Mountain Dew and pineapple juice. I

      poured some of the punch in a ring cake pan, and added gummy worms

      all around the ring. Once frozen this makes an ice ring that will

      keep the punch cold without watering it down, and the worms look very

      cool.

      Fog Machines

      Fog machines have become reasonably priced in the past couple years.

      I’ve seen them at K-Mart for $39.95 this year. This is way better

      than trying to locate and purchase dry ice, and less dangerous too.

      (Dry ice cannot be handled without gloves.) Just make sure your

      machine has a chiller so that the fog remains low to the ground.

      Otherwise you’ll have smog instead of an eerie fog.

      No-Admittance Areas

      Want to block off some rooms or areas of the house from partygoers?

      Keep in the spirit of the night and use bright yellow, plastic police

      tape printed with the words “Do Not Cross” and “Keep Out”. If you

      look around Halloween and novelty stores you can usually find this.
