Spooktacular Party; Best Tips for the Best Halloween Party

Halloween makes for some great parties. Whether you have been planning a huge event or just a small get-together with friends, you can always expect a fun time. Throwing a spooky party is easier than you think. Here are the best ideas and tips to make a fun Halloween extravaganza!

Create A Haunting Space

Guests love walking into a party and immediately being immersed. But decorating doesn’t need to be complicated for it to look cool. You could even get all your supplies from the dollar store! Some ideas include spiderwebs, pumpkins, or even bats that can hang from the ceiling. If you want to be extra creative, you could make a Halloween banner or drawing for the walls! If you don’t want to hand-make things, you can buy decorations from Target or Amazon.

Halloween Themed Snacks

You will be goblin up these snacks all night! From sweet to savory, there will be food for everyone to taste. One great way to make hot dogs spooky is by wrapping them in croissant dough. Your ordinary hot dogs just became the perfect mummy snack! A sweeter option is arranging some pretzels in the shape of a spider web, then piping some melted chocolate over it to give them a spider web effect. Just make sure you have a wide variety of sweet and savory and your food will be top-notch!

Have Some Crazy Halloween Games

You have to have fun games or else your guests will become bored. One spooky game is a murder mystery. One guest has met the end, now everyone else has to be detectives on the case! You can make your own setup with this guide here  or use a premade one. Another game is the eyeball hunt. You make or buy eyeballs out of ping pong balls and hide them. Then your guests have to go on a scavenger hunt to find the most eyes. 


With these tips, your Halloween party will be the most haunted in all of town! Are you going to throw a spooktacular party? Leave a comment!
