Halloween Party Ideas

Halloween parties make a great alternative to trick-or treating. For an incredible, well-put together Halloween party, it’s best to make arrangements well in advance. Here’s some party planning tips for a terrifyingly good time.

Send out Invitations

Get your party invitations out 2-3 weeks before the party. To avoid any confusion, clearly state instructions about themes, costumes, and when the party ends.

Have Adult Supervision

For children, adult supervision is necessary for safety reasons as well as preventing any property damage. Adults can help with the party and enforce rules, while the guests have fun.

Have a Camera Ready

Take pictures and arrange them in a photo album to show your guests after the party. Another idea is to have someone take Polaroid pictures of each guest as they arrive. Give everyone their picture as they leave your party in remembrance of the occasion.

Have a Backup Plan

If you’re planning your party outdoors, be prepared for inclement weather. Have other arrangements ready at a moments notice.

Decoration

Spookify the place, hang shredded black garbage bags in entrance ways and old torn sheets in windows to make your party room look decrepit and abandoned. Shredded black garbage bags make great tablecloths too — just roll everything up in the bags after the party and toss in the garbage. In addition, cover the party food table with a black or orange tablecloth and a selection of scary items such as plastic bugs, rats, and skulls.

Supply Food and Candy

And plenty of it. What’s a party without goodies? Try dressing up your food to look like gross things such as eyeballs, body parts, etc. Make the punch look like blood.

Hand out Party Favors

Don’t let the kids leave empty handed. Hand out gifts to game contest winners and make up some party favor bags with Halloween candy.

Games

it is a great way to break the ice, especially when all of your guests don’t know each other! Ideas include costume contest, pumpkin decorating contest, play musical Caps (similar to musical chairs, but guest pass around hats) and more.
