Spooky Halloween Party Ideas
Halloween is that part of the year that no one would want to miss. The fun, memories, new friends, and trolls are just enough reason to want to always partake in Halloween. Only as the custom has been since the pagan festival ‘Samhain,’ one would wish to be dressed in the best Halloween costume to appear as that ancient scary saint. One of the greatest challenges that approach every 31st October, being the annual Halloween date is how best individuals, families, or communities can put together an eerie Halloween Party. Come with me as I present you 8 Super Spooky Halloween Party ideas that will spice up your Halloween experience this year and beyond.
1. Opt For A Spooky Venue Theme
Finding an ideal place to host your Halloween party is very crucial and fundamental. For the best experience, go in for a spacious and friendly location where you can easily adjust and reorient the place to suit your preferred scene. A temporal wall painting, hanging skeletons, creepy wall hangings of ancient or deceased personalities, pumpkin lighting, creepy table setups with candles and cobwebs, among many others may be required to give you that spooky environment for your Halloween party. Not forgetting, your desired venue should be able to accommodate all your guests with ease. Also, there should be adequate extra space to aid free movements and dancing, such that there is no restriction.
2. Scary Couple Costumes
Your guests might have the different preferred costumes they would want to come in. Some would want to appear in a scary devil demon costume, a zombie or a scary demon outfit. For the sake of your perfect Halloween party scene, you can indicate in your invitation letters a particular form of costume that all your guests should appear in, especially for couples. There are many fun Halloween costumes for men and women out there. Maybe just a general dress code like “a super scary devil outfit” will be excellent. Or a more detailed and specific one like “a super scary devil outfit with red and black colors and horns.”
3. Print Scary Stories And Display On Walls
The Halloween festival always presents to us new and scary stories. As you plan your favorite Halloween party, draft a frightening story. Make sure it’s exciting and provokes fear to all who will be hearing it. The story can be your own exclusive one or an extract from an already existing narrative. Next is to find a suitable location or time to tell this great story. The stories can be printed on the walls for people to read themselves or can be told at the dining table. Around a bonfire will be a great location or when all the lights are off, and everyone gathers in a circle holding hands.
4. Create Creepy Food Decorations
Crazy looking food can add that extra touch to your Halloween party. A variety of these foods can be displayed on a large table in the middle of the party area. Simple making foods such as merely cutting pieces of bananas with raisin ‘mouth’ and chocolate chip ‘eyes’ to appear as ‘boo-nanas.’ You can also prepare some bloody milkshakes using food colorings, as well as devilish eggs, and pizza mummies. You can also cut your orange peppers into a pumpkin shape and then either fill it with chill, vegetables or cheese.
5. Opt For Spooky And Dreary Music
Give no room for a dull moment as you prepare for that pleasant Halloween Party. Music is everything. Carefully select Halloween song tracks that are fun and have danceable tunes. Fix these songs along the stretch of your Halloween Party to ginger your guests and keep them alive and happy throughout the party. Songs like “A Nightmare on My Street by DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince,” “This is Halloween by Marilyn Manson,” “I Walked with a Zombie” and “Highway to hell” among others can present that Halloween feels.
6. Go Crazy On The Scary Decorations
Present to your guests an exceptional Halloween Party experience as they first enter the venue. Halloween decorations are a great way to get your guests into the party. Not only your guests, even the walls, tables, chairs, and all nonliving objects will contribute and share in the Halloween experience. Give the walls a scary Halloween painting, drawings, and hangings that will fit the occasion. You can place fake spider webs just in the door entrance or in an old cupboard centered around.
7. Fix A Few Scarecrows At Random Corners Of The House
The role of scarecrows cannot be underplayed when it comes to the Halloween festivity. They play diverse roles in Halloween. Sometimes for costumes and decorations. A humanoid figure scarecrow is the most commonly patronized scarecrow category in Halloweens. They are dressed up in old clothing and then put inside the garden or just outside the house in many instances. Their scary look makes them a good fit for Halloween designs in general. They can be fixed or hidden at random corners of the house to startle anyone who comes across them.
8. Create A Creepy Cinema Scene On A Projector
A cinema scene on a projector can be fixed in the course of the Halloween party. With every light off, you can have a single screen projection show one of the many scary Halloween movies. This can be at the very beginning of the Halloween party, midway or getting to the close of the entire event. Alternatively, as the video plays and the lights are put off, there can be some bonfires around. The film should not be a very long one, also. Just one or two short and interesting Halloween movies will be excellent for the party.
9. Plan A Costume Swap
Costume swap is typical as it relates to Halloween. Wearing the same costume for two or three years continuous can take away the fun of the experience. To get a new feel and a refreshed look every Halloween year, swap your costume with a friend or a neighbor or a colleague. With your family, you may even decide to do an entire family costume swap with a distant family elsewhere. This will save you some money from having to buy a new Halloween costume every year.
10. Get The Games Out
Get tremendous and interactive Halloween games on standby for all age groups. The fun that comes with Halloween can be channeled into any direction which cannot always be predicted. Great indoor and outdoor games can come in handy to spice up your Halloween experience and that of your guests. No need to spend so much money on getting a game for your Halloween. Simple snake eyes game can be created by using empty water bottles and cheap mailing tubes.
