Realistically, decorations for kids’ Halloween parties shouldn’t get too spooky in case they get too terrified to have fun. By focusing more on the prominent Halloween characteristics, you can actually make your party decor look more kid-friendly! If you’d like to try your hand at DIY, here are some ideas from the folks at The Party Elves:
1) Lantern or Balloon Pumpkins
Really easy and quick to do – and look best in large numbers! Cover a wall with the lanterns half opened, or have helium balloons with faces on, floating in small spaces at eye level.
2) Bat Wall
Easy as pie, but this has amazing impact and works well for a photo wall that doesn’t spook young trick-or-treaters. Cut out some black felt or paper into bat shapes and stick them onto the wall!
The Party Elves can also sort out Halloween entertainment at your next party, mama! Check them out on Facebook to view awesome pics from some of their most recent parties and make sure to drop them a line if you’d like to make a booking.

Sometimes decorations are really better left to the pros: the kids’ party specialists at Happier SG offer various packages that feature jack-o-lanterns, ghost and spider balloon sculptures, and vampire- and witch-themed balloon arches that will make any Halloween party a hit. If you want to go extra crazy they can even do broken doll heads and morbid zombies!
No need to drive around Singapore to find the supplies and decorations in different shops. This one-stop online shop has it all! Their supplies range from pretty sustainable wooden spoons and forks to pastel confetti, drool-worthy paper plates in all colours of the rainbow to cute unraveling pompoms, cake toppers, and photo booth props. Their Halloween section has just arrived so head on down to stock up on chic Halloween gear to spook up a party.
You could always try to throw something together with a little Pinterest inspiration, but if your sewing skills aren’t quite up to snuff or you simply want to leave it to the pros, we can heartily recommend Costumes ‘n’ Parties, which specialises in costumes for kids (like, from newborn onwards), teens and adults. They’re also the only costume boutique in Singapore to offer “special effects makeup” (wigs, blood and fangs really make the costume!), and can also supply you with decorations like spiderwebs, balloons and banners. They’ve even got hard-to-find “ani-motion” Halloween masks With a constant stream of new costumes based on the latest movies and trends, it’s no wonder they have a rep for winning lots of costume contests!
This costume shop at The Central on Clarke Quay is most popular for their cosplay offerings, but you’ll also find little knick-knacks and costume accessories if you find your bubba’s old costume needs a little pizazz!

Candy Empire is always a go-to for good quality candy from all around the world that you may not get anywhere else! They recently opened in Suntec City, adding to the ever-growing list of outlets available in town.
Sure you could snag some sweets at any old grocery or convenience store, but if you really want to wow trick-or-treaters, head to international candy emporium Sophisca, which has a big shop at Marina Square along with another outpost at Changi Airport. Not only do they offer a wide range of yummy sweets – including candied fruits, bonbons, chocolates and more – but their products are all designed and manufactured in-house at their headquarters in Taiwan, so you can rest easy about safe ingredients (not a small thing when it comes to Halloween candy!). YUM!
