the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, what happens at Halloween? Here at Evolution it is one of our favourite
celebrations but we won´t be holding our usual crew party this year.
question is: how to celebrate Halloween and stay safe within the local
restrictions? We think it’s time to create new traditions on board to keep the SPIRIT
and the SPOOKS alive!!
1.- HOST A SUPERYACHT VIRTUAL PARTY
those of us who were looking forward to hosting an amazing Halloween party, let
us not be discouraged! We have you
covered with some great party planning tips to have the best Halloween
celebration yet, all the while safely sheltered
Work the isolation factor into your theme – a zombie outbreak, with everyone hiding
somewhere to survive. Or take your party to outer space and pretend everyone is
in their own spaceship, trying to avoid an alien threat. What is more scary than being alone and not knowing what
lurks under the bed or in the shadows?!
all the crew, friends, or family dress up to match the theme and host an online
costume contest with a virtual prize (like a gift card) for the winner. Don´t forget that
facemasks can be worked very easily into your costume with a bit of creative
thinking, see these images to get you started!
Plan a menu and ask everyone to prepare the same snack or beverage to enjoy together (while apart).
Why not add an extra dimension to your virtual and/or distanced party – Rodney James Piper is a magician who will be hosting his brand-new show live from Salou, Spain and you can join him via the ZOOM App. The show will last just over 35 minutes and is expected to be filled with laughter, suspense, amazement, and surprise.
Everybody on board is set for the
virtual party and the only thing left to figure out is: What will everyone be
Let us help with two of our favorite 2020 Halloween-inspired cocktail recipes (by Town & Country):
1 oz Johnnie Walker Black Label
.5 oz Kahlua
.25 oz Cynar
1 spoon peanut butter
1 Butterfinger bar
Dry shake all ingredients first, then shake with ice and strain over crushed ice. Garnish with Butterfinger crumbles, and half Butterfinger stick.
1.5 oz Hornitos Black Barrel Tequila
.75 oz fresh lemon juice
.25 oz sage simple syrup*
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 capsule activated charcoal
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a coupe glass. Garnish with a lemon wedge.
3.- HALLOWEEN-THEMED SCAVENGER HUNT ON BOARD
trick or treating is not an option this year, how about setting up a scavenger
hunt on board? Along with providing a safe alternative to traditional Halloween
activities, scavenger hunts are entertaining and very engaging. It does require a little preparation, but it can be socially
distanced and adds some mystery and guesswork to your event.
Halloween-themed items around the yacht and set your
crew off try to find the hidden items either on their own or in socially
distancing pairs or teams.
Map out the clues to where you hid the items. All teams will get the same list of Halloween items to
search for throughout the yacht. If you want to make it a competition, see
which team can find them first (and take a photo for proof). The winner team
gets a prize.
order to keep contact to a minimum, send out instructions (but not the list of
items) to all crew members ahead of time, so you don’t need to gather everyone
together closely to go over rules.
the day of the hunt, we suggest delegating one single person to distribute the
lists and pens and don´t forget that ghosts and ghouls
and witches and weirdos still have a responsibility to wash their hands!
These are just some ideas to show that HALLOWEEN isn´t scared of COVID!!! Share your costumes, games and parties with us, we would love to know how you end up celebrating!
Contact your Evolution Yacht Agents office to get more creative ideas and to meet all your needs to organize your Halloween event onboard.
At Evolution we love to get together with our friends and the yachting community, and Halloween is a perfect excuse! Last Friday 25th October we held our 9th annual Halloween fancy dress party at the Nass Beach Club restaurant in Barcelona. About 200 people came from about 16 – 17 different ships, and it was a lot of fun.
These lavish events based around the Mediterranean are firmly established in the yachting agenda, and are essential meeting points for yachting professionals to gather and partake in equal doses of business and pleasure. Which of the following are you planning to attend next year?
We are getting ready for the Monaco Yacht Show, and looking forward to immersing ourselves in the leading-edge exhibitions and showcases from industry leaders in the yachting world. It’s also a welcome opportunity for us all to connect with industry colleagues, clients, and meet like-minded people in a more relaxed way.
