The Halloween season is a time for many events, such as haunted houses, Trick-or-Treating, and Halloween parties. Halloween parties give everyone the chance to dress up in Halloween costumes, celebrate the holiday, and just have a good time. Throwing a Halloween party can be easy or difficult. If the party is planned out in advance, then it can go by easily and smoothly.
If you want to throw a Halloween party this holiday season, then here are tips for planning a Halloween party.
First of all you may want to decide if there is going to be a theme or not. You can have a general Halloween party where everyone can wear whatever costume they want to. You can have a themed party, such as zombies, where everyone would dress up as a zombie. If there are going to be children present, then you can throw a Halloween party that is child friendly or family friendly. You should let your guests know in advance what kind of party you will be throwing and whether or not the party will be appropriate for all ages or adults only.
Once you have the theme decided, you can decide on the supplies and decorations. You can find supplies and decorations that match the theme, or you can any kind of Halloween supplies and decorations. This can also include Halloween props. This can range from supplies, balloon, and a candy bowl to fake spider webs, Halloween wreaths, and pumpkins. The decorations and props can sit still, play music, or move, and can be silly, friendly, or scary.
Even your food can be Halloween themed. Of course you can serve regular party food, such as hotdogs, hamburgers, pizza, chips, soda, and juice. But you can also serve food that will fit the theme of a Halloween party, all you need to do is use your imagination! For example, fruit punch can be placed in a bottle or punch bowl labeled “Blood”. You can wrap biscuits around hotdogs and make them look like fingers. You can even use ketchup as “blood”. Orange and black cupcakes can have Halloween related toppers, Halloween cookies, and candy corn can be served as treats.
If you are playing music, you can play Halloween music such as “The Monster Mash” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. If desired, you can also play regular dance music as well. Of course you should keep the music at a reasonable level, so that the guests can still socialize.
Halloween games and activities for both children and adults can include “Bobbing For Apples”, “Musical Chairs” (to Halloween music), and, trivia for Halloween movies. Children can take part in arts and crafts and games such as “Pin The Witch On The Broom” (similar to “Pin The Tail On The Donkey”). Everyone can also take part in telling spooky stories.
Tips for planning a Halloween party can help you to have your Halloween party planned out before it even happens! If you plan everything out in advance, then it will go by smoothly. When it is time to party, everyone will have a great time! Have fun at your party and Happy Halloween!
