1.Light the night

Lights

Trick-or-treaters will appreciate hauling their treats up a well-lit, safe walkway. Simple white gift bags can be turned into glowing luminaries by punching holes in the front and placing one glow stick inside. Let yourself get creative by using hole punches that come in unique shapes or even create your own outline that resembles an iconic Halloween shape such as a pumpkin or a bat!

2.Signature sips

Lights

Most at-home Halloween parties have minimal lighting, so help your guests easily locate the drink station! Display your signature cocktails or kid-friendly beverages in mason jars or mini glass bottles; then, secure a glow stick to the back of the glass with baker's twine or double-sided tape. This will have guests saying "cheers" in no time!

3. Glowing metallics

Lights

When glow-in-the-dark items reflect off of anything metallic, it's... well... electrifying! Simply connect two or three glow necklaces together and weave them inside a few glass hurricanes. Add in silver or gold metallic candles of various shapes and sizes, and line the candles up along a mantel for a striking presentation.

Put on your costume and enjoy your night full of tricks and treats!
