We’ve seen a rising demand for private Halloween parties in recent years, with clients inspired by Instagram images of impressively costumed stars and clients jumping at the chance to go all-out with costumes and dramatic décor to throw a really over-the-top party.

OK, so you may just be wondering: apart from some seriously epic attire, what does Halloween actually celebrate? Allow us to share a few quick facts. 

Also known as ‘All Saints Eve,’ ‘All Hallows Eve’ and ‘El Dia de Los Muertos’ (Day of the Dead), Halloween is a celebration with pagan roots dating back over 2000 years. In ancient Celtic times, the festival was called Samhain and celebrated the end of the “lighter half” of the year and beginning of the “darker half” in the northern hemisphere.

Here in Australia (where our seasons are opposite) it has turned out to be just another great excuse to dress up and have fun; and if you’re a grown-up, it’s a perfect opportunity to entertain friends over some great food and drinks.  Keen to get your freak on this Halloween? We’re here to help you pull off a spectacularly spooky themed soiree that will have your friends eerily impressed. Our team can design a special Halloween-themed menu around your party, with beverage package to match – all you need to do is figure out your costume.
