Halloween Party Planning: 7 Tips for a Spooky and Scary Night

If you're looking for a fun, spooky and scary way to spend the night of October 31st then you should read this blog post. It will give you 7 tips that will help make your halloween party everything it needs to be!

This blog post is going to give you tips that will help make your halloween party one of the best nights ever! It's easy to plan an amazing night for friends, family or just yourself if these steps are followed closely. Let's get started!

I am looking forward to my Halloween Party this year because I'm finally having a big one where all my friends can come over at once instead of splitting up between two different weekends like we usually do. We always have fun but our parties might be too small for some people who don't know us as well so now everyone gets invited! Since its been a long time since I had a party like this I'm excited to see what people think of my new house and how they act around each other. We're all adults now so Halloween Party Planning should be easy, right?

1. Pick a theme

Halloween parties are the most fun when they're themed. You might not have realized it but there is a lot that goes into them! Everything from decorations to snacks needs to fit in with the theme of your party if you want everything to come together well. The food, drinks and activities need all be spooky or scary so everyone has an amazing time! If its just some candy handed out at school then people will be disappointed by how boring it was this year.

2. Don't forget about safety

Don't forget about safety either! It's always good for parents to keep an eye on their kids while trick-or-treating and make sure the costumes aren't too hot or heavy for children who've never worn one (if they can even walk in it). Make sure everyone has a flashlight and knows how to cross the street safely.

3. Costumes for everyone

Make sure everyone has a costume that fits the theme (if applicable) and doesn't take up too much space at your home.

4. Invite your guests to come when they can

Decide on a start time for the party and make sure that all of your guests are free to come then between those hours (if you're splitting into two groups/time slots keep these times far apart).

5. Games are perfect for all ages

Choose some activities like bobbing-for-apples, dodgeball or paintball depending on how many people will be there! If its only around 20 people you might want to do something more low key like charades or video games but if it's closer 50+ friends try not to overwhelm them with too many options so they don't feel as overwhelmed as I sometimes did when planning parties before school got out for break. :)

6. Set the ambiance

Remember decorations aren't optional even though Halloween is one night. You can't just throw some cheap spooky lights up in your front yard and call it a day. Gather any decorations you have from past halloween parties or make sure you buy all new ones to fit the theme of your party!

7. Zombies need to eat too!

Decide on food, drinks and snacks by thinking about how many people will be there. If its more than 50+ guests go with something simple like chips because no one wants to wait too long for hot dogs at their own house party (we should know). Last but not least keep safety tips in mind when choosing activities especially if they are outside games that involve running around. Make sure everyone knows what they're getting themselves into before starting anything physical! Hopefully this post gave you an idea of how to make your Halloween party one for the books! If you have any questions about what worked best at my parties or how I planned them feel free to ask me in the comments below.
