Halloween party ideas needed? Not sure where to start? Then lets get your spooky halloween party working a treat, no tricks...
So what are you like to need?
How long do you need to plan this? That all depends on what you want to do for your party, but I would suggest that you start to think about this a good 6 weeks before Halloween!
As with most good parties there is an element of organization that is needed. A Halloween Party is no exception!
As for me, I find spending time planning, makes for a successful halloween party! Ideas on which checklists you will need to use, then take a look at these:
First thing to work through is your guest list and whether you are hosting an adult or child's Halloween Party!
Your Venue - Although you may already know where you are having your party, you will need to consider the venue. You may be weighing up hiring a venue vs hosting your party at home, you'll need to consider these types of things...
With your numbers worked out you can then look at whether you are going to be doing food, what music or entertainment you want, or whether you want to jump straight into party games.
Not everyone has the most suitable creepy looking house, with the creaky gate or a cemetery just outside their door! But using your best halloween decoration ideas, will enhance your Halloween party.
Decorate the front of your venue - you may wish to consider some or all of these...
Once your guests come inside, don't let your interior decorations let the side down! Some of the decorations you can consider are...
The list is endless, just if you do have a spare coffin lying around, make sure that it's not lockable!
Of all the best halloween party ideas, it has to be the fancy dress competition!
You can let your guests imaginations run truly wild. So before your airing cupboard is ransacked for all your white sheets, what other easy halloween costumes are out there...
Costumes - whether they are homemade or purchased for you, they add and create so much of your atmosphere that something is a must... even if it's just face paint!
Fancy Dress Competitions - what do you need to do to run one?
A reward for the winner is also a nice gesture, but be prepared that you may have joint winners!
Whether the kids are 5 and under or 21 plus, there is always a good bit of fun to be had with some classic party games...
Party Games -
These can be particularly messy, so you may want to make sure that any fancy dress competitions are finished first!
If you are particularly house proud, you may wish for these games outside!
