Halloween Party Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner, and now could be the perfect time to throw a party for your friends and family. After all, after 18 difficult months, we’re now able to spend time together again, so, as long as we’re mindful of taking precautions, why not make the most of it. If you’re looking to celebrate this spooky season, discover some great Halloween party ideas to make yours the social event of the year.

Make sure you decorate with lots of Halloween-themed decorations

Halloween Party

Firstly, you need to consider how you are going to decorate your home or the venue that you have hired. The two traditional colours for Halloween are orange and black, so incorporate them for your Halloween inspired party venue. Use the Magic Stitch to create themed bunting in minutes or get fake cobwebs for your home. Both are a cheap and effective way of making an impression.

There are a lot of other cheap, convenient decorations that will add to a frightful theme, including plastic spiders and jack-o-lanterns. You may also want to consider the likes of brooms and witches’ hats. As long as the items are associated with Halloween, the possibilities are endless! Alternatively, why not get creative. Use red lipstick to write a creepy message on the bathroom mirror. Or, you may want to consider buying a Halloween themed door mat for your front door. Little touches like this really make a big impression on your guests.

Don’t forget your costumes!

A Halloween party isn’t a Halloween party without some fantastic fancy dress. Go for a horror movie theme for your do or if traditional costumes like witches, ghosts, vamps or skeletons. We love a family costume theme (Addams Family anyone?!). Alternatively, go for something current – is there a new favourite TV character that you love? Lastly, funny but frightening fancy dress will never go out of fashion!

Keep everyone entertained with fun and frightening games

There are lots of great Halloween-themed games that you can add to the celebrations to keep all your guests entertained. Why not have a Halloween crafts competition, where the creator of the best Halloween-themed decoration wins a prize? Of course, you may also want to consider hosting a competition for the best fancy dress for Halloween. After all, we are sure you will see a lot of frighteningly spectacular costumes during your event, and it adds some extra fun and excitement to the occasion if you provide the best dressed with a prize for their efforts.

Make trick or treat bags

Next on our list of Halloween party ideas is to make trick or treat bags for everyone to enjoy. After all, who doesn’t love a party bag? Party bags leave a good impression, no matter how young or old the guests are. Just make sure that the contents are suitable for the age of the attendees. You could even grab your pots and pans and create some Halloween biscuits to enjoy after the party’s over. For the ‘trick’ element, why not add in gummy worms and a few fake spiders!

Make sure you set up your playlist with lots of scary tunes

In addition to the Halloween party ideas that we have covered so far, every good party needs to have good music. At this time of year, your playlist needs to be filled with monstrous music to create the right atmosphere. The good news is that it is not difficult to put together such a playlist today which is suitable for adults and children. Streaming platforms tend to have a lot of pre-made Halloween playlists, so there will be numerous options for you to select from. Just be sure to make sure they’re age appropriate before you hit play.

Delight with tasty Halloween treats and drinks

There are lots of incredible recipes online, which include everything from monster-themed burgers to graveyard trifles. It is all about making foods that looks amazing and fits in with the theme, but tastes good too. Don’t sacrifice the taste of the food in order to make it look more frightening, as people want to enjoy what they are eating!

Holding your party outdoors?

If you’re planning on having your party outside to ensure you reduce the risk of COVID-19, you might want to consider a few things to make sure that your guests are comfortable and warm, whatever the weather. Having outdoor heaters is one thing, but if you can’t stretch to providing this, why not provide blankets and a hot pan of food to keep your guests warmed. You could provide a crowd-pleasing pot of chilli alongside the usual themed food.

As you can see, there are a lot of different ways that you can make sure your Halloween party is one to remember.
