Follow our tips to make sure your Halloween party goes off smoothly, and you will be the talk of the town until the holidays.
Choose a theme
One of the best ways to ensure that everyone wears a costume is by choosing a theme. You can either decide to take the Halloween road and keep a monster theme or you can get creative and ask your friends to perform a Mr. T impersonation. There are chances that many will arrive without a costume. If you wish to maximize the realism of your Halloween bash, keep extra accessories and costumes to hand out to the ones who are unmasked.
Choose a date:
It is never a good idea to throw a party on the Halloween night. This is especially important if it falls on a weekday, as you will risk having a very few people show up. Plan it preferably on a weekend, and try and talk as many invitees as possible before fixing a date.
Decorate according to your theme
In case you’re planning to go with a traditional spooky theme then make sure you dim the lights, use strobe lights and fog machines, and add skeletons and spider webs throughout the space for enhancing the eeriness of the atmosphere. Also, place tarot cards in many places so that your guests can have fun playing Halloween-inspired games.
If you wish to enhance the theme and mood of your party, play different theme-appropriate movies in the party space — keeping the volume low. These movies will help add to the party’s mood.
You can either take the old-fashioned route by sending party invites through mail or you can mail a personalized, cool e-vite to every guest. Apart from the important details, do not forget to mention your theme and let the guests know that they should wear a costume for being a part of the fun.
Serve food and drinks according to your theme
Don’t just order pizza when you are throwing a Halloween party. Try using food that is inspired by Halloween. You can keep Halloween spiders made out of noodle, chicken witch fingers, and gummy worms made out of gelatin. Also, add food coloring to your drinks to give them a spooky-potion feel. Try to get as creative as you can!
Also, make sure you offer non-alcoholic beverages so that your guests have plenty of options to choose from.
It is not easy to plan a Halloween party. You have to consider the decor, food, and all the additional things that will make your party fantastic. But, once everything is prepared, you and your guests will have the time of your life.
