Halloween parties can be the same from house to house. Dress up, have candy, decorations and maybe some scary themed food; it is the same all over. Throwing an epic Halloween party is easy if you do not get sucked into making it a mash of all things Halloween!
Pick a theme. When you choose your theme stick with it and do not deviate or your party will look like a mesh of all the other parties. There are thousands of themes to choose from such as horror movies, vampires, masquerade, Disney characters, superhero characters, TV shows, skeleton, pumpkin or scary tea parties. Children parties and adult parties are different. Let’s look at throwing a proper adult Halloween party…
Once you choose your theme start looking for invitations. Internet invites are the way to go. Do not do both Internet invites and paper invites, it is too confusing. Choose one and create your invites. Make sure you pass out your invites in plenty of time for people to clear their calendars for your party. Nobody likes a last minute invite; it shows lack of planning.
Decorate for your party to give your guests plenty to look at, creating some must-see conversation pieces will have people talking about YOUR party for weeks to come! Halloween stores, department stores and even the Internet can provide great places to shop. Check for local Halloween shops such as Spirit Halloween, Oriental Trading Company, Amazon, department stores, Home Depot, Lowes and even grocery stores, as they all carry Halloween decorations.
Large yard blow-up decorations make great entrance pieces. They can set the initial tone for your party. A graveyard scene in your front yard with some dry ice or fog machine creates a spooky atmosphere. Hire some teenagers, local theater students or your own kids to play zombies in the graveyard as your guests arrive. Everyone appreciates the extra effort and scare.
Inside decorations can match your outside efforts. Motion activated or animatronics are great, but you can decorate without them. Go beyond the streamers and balloons. Use backdrops and scene setters to set the mood. These can be hung on the wall or on doors. Decorations such as skeletons or webs can be positioned on them or in front of them. Ceiling decorations can also add to a spooky atmosphere.
Table covers and tableware are easy to find in various themes. If you have trouble and start to stressed, get black and orange table covers and tableware. Black and orange go with any theme. End of season is a great time to buy ahead for next year’s party. Buying generic color like black and orange will save you in the long run.
Your menu of food or snacks can also accompany your theme. Delish website offers many spooky and some gross snacks. Your guest will be surprised and amazed with brain molded Jell-O or pumpkin looking deviled eggs. Urine test Jell-O shots will have your guests begging for more.
