Halloween Invitations Tips (1940's)

A written invitation has the advantage of putting the guests into the party mood before they arrive at your door.  It should build up anticipation, but should not promise anything which the party will not justify.  Hallowe’en invitations may be written in:

  • black ink on orange paper with a tiny black cat in the corner
  • an orange pumpkin
  • or in white on black paper enclosed in an orange pumpkin envelope
  • invitations shaped like black cats, witches or owls
