Ever dream of hosting a Halloween party that takes “spooky” to the next level? Sure, getting dressed up in your costume-of-choice is fun as it is. However, you don’t have to settle for your mother’s typical Halloween shindig this year!
You can keep it light, silly, and fun with jack-o’-lanterns all ablaze. You can also plan your Halloween party with a scary edge – perhaps a ghostly-maze to haunt your guests!
There are so many choices when it comes to hosting a spook-tacular Halloween party.
Know your audience, keep it on theme, and of course, pick the right venue. Here at Salero, we take spooky very seriously.
Halloween Party Ideas 101: Have a Howling Good Time
1. Curate a Fang-tastic Halloween Playlist
First thing’s first: keep your guests on the dance floor! It isn’t a real Halloween party without a Halloween playlist.
You can opt for some lighthearted classics (i.e. Monster Mash). If you want to go creepier this year, try the playlist from “Stranger Things.” It’s creepy-cool!
2. Creep’ it Real with a Signature Halloween Drink
A truly unforgettable Halloween party needs its cauldron of witches’ brew. Craft a unique, Halloween-esque cocktail that makes your guests scream!
You don’t have to go with the standard Bloody Mary, either, you can get creative!
Opt for the Vampire’s Kiss instead. Or make a deliciously-dreadful Halloween Punch for your guests.
3. Plan an Eerie-sistible Menu
Food is what makes or breaks a party, Halloween-themed or not. Depending on the mood you’re trying to create, you can choose a menu accordingly.
Maybe spaghetti and eyeballs, perhaps? Or chocolate-covered ghost strawberries? If you’re looking for something more upscale, planning a 5-star menu is a no-brainer with Salero.
4. Choose Bewitching Decor
Atmosphere is everything, especially at a Halloween party! Low lighting, spider-webs, jack-o’-lanterns, skeletons, oh my!
Thrift stores usually are stocked up with unique Halloween decor, particularly for DIY projects. You can even create an optical illusion with mazes, moving images, spooky projections, and more.
To kick it up a notch, even hire actors to pose as scary-living-statues, and spook your guests at inopportune times!
5. Ghoul’s Just Wanna’ Have Fun: Plan Games
Bobbing for apples, costume contests, haunted hayrides – the options are limitless! Have you ever thought about how adults want to trick-or-treat, too? To delight the inner-child in us all, they can!
Trick-or-treating with an adult twist can look like a scavenger hunt or hiding candy in food! You can include prizes, too.
Costume contests are also a great incentive for your guests to arrive dressed-to-the-nines. Offer some unique prizes, and give your guests a night they won’t forget.
6. Give Out Party Favors to Die For
Who doesn’t love receiving gifts? Why do goody-bags have to stop with children’s parties?
Party favors are a lovely cherry-on-top to an already unforgettable evening. Halloween party favors will impress your party-goers, and it’s a way to extend your gratitude to your guests.
You may consider a goblet filled with Halloween candy, a skull-shaped shot-glass, or a witches cauldron of goodies.
