October means it’s officially the start of the holiday season, with endless fun parties and events on the horizon. Every Halloween represents a special celebration of all things otherworldly, and it gives people the chance to live out their wildest fantasies without any fear (well, maybe a few jumpscares). If you want to throw a killer party all of your Halloween-loving guests are bound to enjoy, here are some tips that will help you throw the best monster bash ever:
Find the perfect Halloween costume
If you’re throwing a Halloween party, you need to go all out and host your event in style. Wrapping yourself in toilet paper to represent a mummy or throwing a sheet over your head to act as a ghost simply isn’t going to cut it; you need to put some serious effort into your costume. Whether you decide to recreate your favorite horror movie character or completely transform yourself into a terrifying creature with open wounds and objects protruding from your body, as well as a ton of fake blood, give it your best shot and show your guests what a Halloween host should look like.
Go wild with the party decor
A Halloween party can be a complete failure without appropriately themed decor, so make sure to embellish your whole home with some seriously spooky splendor. Even though you can always go with the traditional option and choose a haunted house theme, complete with spider webs, smoke, bloody handprints and an artificial corpse or two, there are numerous imaginative Halloween decor ideas you can opt for. Whether you go for candlesticks and skulls for a dark Victorian theme, or make snake wreaths and blacken your plants for a truly witchy vibe, don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Let your imagination go wild and wow your guests with your stunning Halloween decorations.
Choose healthy food options
Even though it’s a party and the festive season is just beginning, that doesn’t mean that you should let yourself go completely and indulge in tons of unhealthy snacks. What Australians like to do during this season is to get healthy meals delivered from Brisbane and encourage some healthier eating habits during the holidays. So, take a cue from the Aussies and only opt for healthy and nutritious snack options that are made from fresh, high-quality ingredients, in order to keep all of your guests full and satisfied, while preventing them from making another poor food choice during the holiday season.
Opt for fun themed beverages
When it comes to beverages, there are endless options for fun and festive drinks that embrace the spirit of Halloween. Whether you opt for classic Bloody Marys and a Pumpkin Spice Punch or even some creative Halloween cocktails, don’t forget to stock up on dry ice to create a spooky smoking effect. You can even decide to pick up some cocktail garnishes, such as plastic eyeballs, syringes or spiders, and lay out only black and orange cocktail napkins, to pull the whole Halloween theme together and impress every guest.
Incorporate lots of fun games
Encourage your guests to come to your party wearing the most creative and terrifying costume they can think of by throwing a contest and rewarding the winner with some gag gifts or even a collection of old weird horror movie DVDs. Apart from the contest, try to incorporate lost of entertaining Halloween games, such as murder mysteries, spooky trivia, and exciting scavenger hunts, that will ensure your guests have a bewitchingly good time throughout the whole evening.
Put together a spooky playlist
No great party was ever thrown without a killer playlist, so set up a few powerful speakers around your living room or the area where you are planning to entertain and blast your favorite seasonal tunes. From Monster Mash and Thriller to iconic horror movie themes, there are endless Halloween songs you can choose from. If you’re tired of the classics, a great idea would be to take inspiration from Spotify’s amazing Halloween playlist for this year and opt for some lesser-known tunes that will keep your guests dancing all night long.
From tasty food to themed drinks and ghoulish decor, there are many ways you can throw the best Halloween party your guests will undoubtedly be talking about until next year.
