A Halloween party isn’t just time for you to gather with friends or family, it’s also a time for you to show off your creativity. You might be thinking of throwing a Halloween party to kick off the long weekend—here are some tips to get the ball rolling:
Dress Up in Costumes
Let’s face it: a Halloween party isn’t complete without the costumes, so this is on top of the list. Whether you want to go for a cute, sexy or scary costume, it doesn’t matter—just make sure you’re in one, and that your friends have costumes as well.
Jazz Up Your Cocktails
For a Halloween party with friends, the presence of alcoholic drinks can help the night flow freely. To make things more exciting, you can put a spin on the usual cocktails by adding spooky elements like red dye to make the drink look like blood, eye-shaped candies, incorporate dry ice, or serve them in skull-shaped glasses.
It helps to add Halloween-themed decor to your home or venue. If you’re up for it, you can clear out a space for a photo wall or photo booth, where guests can take photos and post online. You can go the extra mile by creating your own hashtag, so they’re easily trackable.
Lay Out a Horrific Spread
Aside from your cocktails, you’ve got to make sure that your guests don’t go hungry—else you might find Dracula feeding off one of your other guests, and you do not want that. A punch bowl with eye-shaped fruits is a good way to spook guests, and Halloween-themed desserts are a great addition.
You can’t let your guests leave the party empty-handed. As per Halloween tradition, you can put together a goodie bag that contains an assortment of chocolates and candies.
