Choose a Theme

Throwing a themed party seems like a lot of work, but it doesn’t have to be! It can actually make the experience more fulfilling for everyone and more fun for you to throw. Whether it’s a fun-and-games theme or an evening centered around a murder mystery, simply having a direction you want your party to go can give you a guide for the treats you serve, decorations you put up, and activities you do. Pinterest has some great Halloween party themes for all sorts of party ideas.


Play Some Music

No party is complete without music. Music really helps set the tone of a party, so make a Halloween playlist and include some of these Top Ten Halloween Songs like Michael Jackson’s hit song “Thriller.” Get out on the dance floor and show off some of your killer dance moves!


Costume Contest

Half the fun of Halloween is dressing up! Every great Halloween party should also be a costume party. Hold a contest for the best costumes in a variety of categories — you can even give out prizes as added incentives for guests to bring costumes.


Play Games

Come up with some games to bring everyone together. These can be classic board games, like Pictionary or Trivial Pursuit, a card game. Or, you can put a little more effort in and try out a few Halloween party games from Pinterest. Have a few different game options available, but stick to two or three to allow for people to really get excited about them.


Fun Food

We can’t end today’s post without mentioning a few Halloween-inspired recipes. Take some time to look over these 19 Scary Halloween Recipes that you can bring to the table. There are even a few savory recipes to help you balance out all the sweets.
