Understandably, this year’s Halloween celebrations will be much different than in years past while we’re practicing physical distancing measures and meticulous hygiene practices.
However, when it comes to Halloween, there are still plenty of ways to celebrate in your multi-family home, as well as in Edmonton. Don’t worry, Halloween isn’t canceled this year.
COVID-Friendly Halloween Ideas In Your Multi-Family Home
Arguably one of the most enjoyable parts of Halloween is the trick-or-treating for children. The one night a year where they’re allowed to collect bales of free candy. While we’ll likely be skipping the apple bobbing this year, there’s still plenty of COVID-friendly and sanitary ways to celebrate Halloween. If this is your first time celebrating Halloween in a multi-family home, you’re in for a treat! Or maybe a trick.
A brand new practice to 2020, trunk-or-treating involves decorating your car instead of your home, to help keep people outdoors in open spaces!
Ever tried trick-or-treating indoors? The concept is giving out candies to children in the comfort of your own home dressed in your wackiest Halloween costume! Other ideas include hosting a virtual Halloween party with friends and family, watching a scary movie, or playing some spooky Halloween games! The choice is yours!
Celebrate at the Nautical at Summerside
As part of the Halloween festivities, the Nautical Luxury Suites at Summerside will prepare goody bags and organize a draw box for residents to enter and win prizes! Tune in on October 31st from 12 PM to 5 PM at our office (#109 4211 Savaryn Drive SW).
Indoor Halloween Decoration Ideas
There are still so many fun activities we can do inside during the Fall and Halloween season. Half the fun of living in a multi-family suite is decorating for the seasons, so here are a few indoor Halloween decoration ideas for your unit!
Pumpkin carving goes without saying during the Halloween season, right? Invite some friends from your bubble over, don gloves (because you don’t want to get your hands full of pumpkin anyways), and enjoy a nice pumpkin carving party or contest in your unit. The pumpkins will look great out on your balcony! You can pick up reusable LED lights to minimize the risk of fire.
If you’re not 100% confident in your knife skills, you can always paint your pumpkins instead. Much less mess, the pumpkins last longer, and you get to show off your artistic flair. As a bonus, you can string battery-operated LED mini string lights to illuminate these as well.
Every year the dollar stores and the like fill up with a plethora of Halloween decorations, all for cheap! Stock up on spiderwebs, wall hangings, reusable or plastic cups, hanging ghouls and witches, and more! Quick tip – some fake blood decorations will stain surfaces, so use discretion and only use them on appropriate surfaces like windows.
Paper spiderwebs and flying bats
Remember the paper snowflakes you’d carve out as a kid? You can use the same idea to make paper spider webs! Similarly, you can cut black paper to hang a flock of bats along your walls.
