THEMES

  1. Costume Party: You can’t get it wrong here. Let your visitors come in their best Halloween outfits. To ensure that each visitor will be happy to come in costume, make a costume contest which will end of with the winner getting a prize.

 

  1. Haunted House: Turn your home or patio into a spooky house. If your guests are to be adults, you can transform your house into a spooky scientific lab and do something that is more befitting for a family party.

 

  1. Murder Mystery: This one is fun and involves having your literary friends to all dress up as their top choice (dead) writer who has come back from the dead to gather stuff for their secret world. You can give out "formal" invitations welcoming your guests to literary reading and even decorate your house to look like a creepy library, full of old books, gleaming candles and lots of spider webs.

 

  1. Heroes vs. Villains:   People of all ages like comic stories from either books or movies. Let the guest in shindig choose a hero or villain to represent. Think of how exciting it is to see who will arrive dressed as a villain or hero.

 

In case you're taking into account little kids or families, having games during the party and letting them have a villain Vs. Hero contest will be great. Keep track of the side that is winning or the performance of each of the sides in the course of the night and count up the results toward the end. Hmm, who will be the winner; the Heroe side or the Villains?

 

  1. Carnival versus Freak Show:  Adorn your home in red and white, string shaded lights, serve popcorn, pipe cakes and monster pretzels. If your backyard is huge, take the display outdoor for that will be ideal for the family. Whoever is the host should appear dressed in ringmaster costume to host rivalries, games, or any other fun activities for the guests.  

 

  1. Willy Wonka: Candy is at the center of Halloween. Send glowing and candy invitation-shaped-like candy and turn your home into a candy world! Splendid colors, whirls, and sparkle served as exciting decoration, won’t have your guests scared.

 

  1. Alice in Wonderland: It’s a theme that enables you to explore party ideas with fun. Thoughts vary from the standard occasion to holiday spook. Your visitors will have lots of fun taking on the appearance of different characters as in the book (and movie). Now, you can serve desserts with tea play cards and croquet!

 

HARRY POTTER: Turn your home to Hogwarts and add owl decorations, candles, creepy lighting magic wands, cauldrons, the sorting hat, and more. Send some invitations out as Hogwarts’ acceptance letters. If it’s a party for family members, let all adults get into professor costumes and children into students’. Serve “butterbeer” for Harry Potter fans, and finally, you can call a Knight Bus to return your guests to their homes.

 

DECOR

An extraordinary method to change the atmosphere at your party is to play some scary music in the background. Put the volume on mute to set the temperament such that the sound will not be conflicting with music. Put it on screen. That’s even better.

  1. Halloween Movies: Decide your movie playlist according to the party theme. If you need a genuinely frightening party, select scary Halloween movies like Friday the 13th series, Rocky Horror Picture Show or Beetlejuice. If children are invited, make a selection based on favorite family movies like Hocus Pocus, The Adams Family, etc,

Lighting is basic for all bashes. Wind purple, green and orange colored string lights around the home.

  1. Fake cobwebs, rats, bats, spiders: Fake cobwebs have to be added to make your party a complete Halloween party. Hang fake and creepy spiders and bats on the furnishings, plus rodents in the kitchen or on the dining table. Be creative and feel free to scare your guests with such decorations.
  2. Tombstones, body parts, fake blood: Venture up the decor style with a genuinely horrific twist. Bring out the thrills if the party is for adults. Line up the names of your guests on tombstones and get some artificial body parts and fake blood from your local store and raise the decoration to a super spooky level.
  3. Jack-o-Lanterns, Gourds, and Pumpkins: If the guests you invited are youngsters, startling blood and gravestone enhancements won't be a strong match. Rather decorate the house in merry pumpkins, scarecrows, and gourds. Neighborly looking witches, zombies, skeletons and more in that category.
  4. Candles: Let your refreshment table have a candelabra that comprises candles of changing sizes. Due to the fear of the risk of using real candles, get sparkling electric candles to bring in the needed spook. However, anything that is risky for kids or your dog should be protected or not used at all because safety must always be given significant attention on Halloween.
  5. Spooky Playlist: Music is fundamental for any social event. For creepy music, just play the blend in the entrance. Or make a play list and include a couple of friendly holiday songs

PHOTO WALL

Creating a photo booth to create a photo wall is a great idea if you can’t rent one. Make the wall background for taking pictures, and your guests would like it. Drape a towel, solid blanket or paper to make the background and a banner with the theme and year on it.

Mount a prop-table with costume accessories such as feather boas, beads, mustache cutouts, and hats. Also include masks, superhero masks, glasses, and cat ears. These cutouts will be great for your party and Instagram too.

FOOD

It’s crucial to know your guests' palates to deal with food allergy issues and have the right dietary needs. Keep away nuts and milk from food. Ensure that all dishes and appetizers are labeled clearly to clear the issue of allergens.

  1. Though it’s an adult party, a bowl of candy at the entrance is great. It’s Halloween! Including an assortment of candy in goodie bags for guests when they leave makes a lot of sense. Kids adore it!
  2. Blood Red Punch Bowl: A blood-red punch bowl or even a ghoulish green as a creepy treat will look better. For a spooky treat, use dry ice to create a fog on the punch using dry ice. There’s a lot of creative stuff to do here.
  3. Appetizers: Serve appetizers and finger foods instead of full meals. And for kids, hot dogs will also be great instead of regular buns with twisted bread stick dough to make fun mummies.
  4. Dessert: Prepare a few dessert choices instead of candy for adults with a big sweet tooth. You can serve ghostly hot cocoa top with whip cream plus chocolate pieces as eyes. Have your cupcakes looking like ghosts, monsters or gravestone brownies and include caramel apples too.
