Ideas and Tips for Throwing the Perfect Halloween Party

Halloween is just around the corner, so the party season begins. We all love being invited to Halloween parties, but the joy some of us get from throwing a bangin' party of our own is incomparable. If you've done it before, you probably have your tips and tricks, but if this is your first year hosting for Halloween, we're here to help. Check out these Halloween party ideas for yours to be the best party around town. 

Pick a Theme

Although Halloween in itself is already a theme, many people forget that they can make it even more fun by defining their own Halloween party theme. A couple of ideas for this: haunted house party, pumpkin carving party, spooky treats party, murder mystery party, spooky scavenger hunt, witches and potions party, Halloween movie party, spicy Halloween party, and many more. Go crazy with this, and choose a theme your guests will enjoy and be able to comply with!

Pick a Decor Palette

This may sound silly for Halloween, but trust us on it. There are so many different types of spooky decorations that choosing a defined color palette can help you pick what to get. Plus, it basically guarantees that your party house will look amazing.

Create Spooky Invites

If you're gonna go all out, go all out. Making spooky invites for your guests -- whether printed or digital -- will let them know that they aren't going to just any old Halloween party, this is THE party to be at.

Gift Ghoulish Goodie Bags

This is a must and can be done in so many fun ways. You can go traditional and give them some candy with some fake spiders mixed in, but you can also bake some spooky treats for them to take home, make some creepy decorations for their own houses, or gift them some Halloween-themed items to make your guests feel extra special.

Set Up a Deadly Snack Table

Bake some creepy cookies and cupcakes to decorate, buy some pumpkin treats, create a scary cake decoration, and make some spider-inspired finger food. There are so many ways to make simple recipes more Halloween-ie with little effort. However, we recommend that you keep in mind what your culinary limits are - you don't want to end up with a bunch of recipes you don't know how to follow.

Dance Until the Dead Rise with Your Halloween Playlist 

This goes without saying -- and doesn't specifically apply to Halloween. The key to a good party is the music. Make a good, long playlist, and make sure you have options for all music tastes. If you don't want to hire a DJ, then you or one of your friends can try to read the vibe during the party and choose which song should go next.

Find the Perfect Party Day Shirt

Get Your Frank On T-Shirt
If you're too busy planning everything else related to your costume, you'll need a good party shirt to fit in with your guests. Whether it's a scary movie theme or just an old-fashioned horror theme, your t-shirt needs to be up to par with the date -- so make it good. Our collection of horror shirts has a long list of t-shirt options to make your look the best at the party, so don't forget to check it out.
