Halloween parties aren’t just for kids. If you don’t have little ones to take trick-or-treating around the neighborhood, Halloween is a great time to throw a fun costume party for you and your friends! Here are just a few tips to make sure you get everything you need to throw an amazing party on October 31.
1. Create the mood. Keep things sufficiently spooky with dark lights, black cloths, jack-o-lanterns, and, of course, fake cobwebs. If you want something a little more creative, create a mini haunted house that stretches from your front doorway to the kitchen or living room. All your guests have to go through it to get to the food!
2. Pick the right food. Make sure you visit BlairCandy.com online candy store for plenty of candy for guests to snack on or hand out to visiting trick-or-treaters. Beyond that, give your food the right atmosphere. Use red food coloring to look like your sandwiches or popcorn are bleeding. Serve punch in a hollowed out pumpkin or fake skull bowl. Add olives to your deviled eggs to give them eyes. Get creative!
3. Award costume prizes. Cheesy as it may be, everyone loves dressing up and getting noticed for their costumes. Come up with fun, silly prizes for the funniest costume, the scariest costume, the most creative costume, the best couples costume, and more. Have people vote for who they think should win, and award the prizes at the end of the night.
4. Watch a scary movie. Top off the evening with a scary movie. Depending on how much you and your friends like horror flicks, you could go for something genuinely terrifying, or you could choose a so-bad-it’s-good horror movie and have fun making fun of it all night long.
