Whoever tells you that getting a costume very year for Halloween is stressful or frustrating is just a little shy on the creativity in their heads. I recently started exploring the field of mindfulness of as most of us know it to be practicing the meditation. The best outcome of this practice that I have experienced has to directly do with the level of creativity that I have. Now, based on my own experience, I feel completely confident of recommending this practice to all those stressed souls who are fretting over the idea of getting a costume every year.
I say hone your creative skills and recycle. I have been recycling the same costume for many years and still manage o get away with it pretty good. The costume that I am talking about is the peacock costume which I have varied in design and turned into a disco dress, an actual peacock replica and a grown up night dress which was perfect for late night parties that I got invited to. I think it is quite wasteful to spend money on costume every year and would strongly suggest you spend it wisely on other things while you use to mind power to create a costume for yourself.
Party decorations CAN make or break your party. The first thing people notice when they enter your venue are the decorations. Lame decorations can actually make an impression that party would be lame as well. So put a lot of thought into it before you choose a theme and buy the right kind of decor.
Your decorations needn’t be expensive or difficult. You can have some unique but cheap decorations that would complete your graduation party ideas. Here are some of the ideas you can use:
1. Considered as the cheapest decorations. Your high school or college mementos. Just ask to borrow from some of your friends or get one from your own old stuff. Old memories would be good for your group.
2. Relate it to the theme. It depends on what theme you’re planning. If it’s an underwater theme, then you should go to the nearest beach and grab plenty of shells or anything you can use. If it’s time related, like the 70’s then go grab some disco ball and start putting blinding lights and groovy music.
3. Reuse some of your old decor. Confetti? Get some used up colored paper and cut them. You can even use those newspapers for a dancing game later on.
