Halloween Party Planning Tips

Oct 06, 2014

Do you want to throw a Halloween party that all the boils and ghouls want to come to? With a little planning and creativity you can scare and delight any monster that comes through your door. Check out these Halloween Party Planning Tips!

Spooky Snacks!

Sure, you can just empty a couple of bags of chips and Halloween candies into bowls, but one of the best parts of a Halloween party can be serving up some frightening food to your friends. Here are some ideas for Halloween treats that may lure your guests from the graveyard to your front door.

  • Brain Jello: No one in their right mind would want to eat a brain you might think, but if it's delicious wobbly jello in the shape of brain, they might think twice. All you need for this one is some jello and a mold. 
  • Creepy Cookies: If you like to bake spice up the sweets by making your own cookies and decorating them with spooky scenes or cutting them into fun halloween shapes like bats, witches and more!
  • Drink up!: Pick out pops that are orange, or make a fruit punch with a few extras in it - like floating fingers, eyeballs or other ghoulish extras! If you want to go the extra mile, serve it all up in a cauldron.

Devilish Decorations

An easy way to start decorating for a Halloween party is to buy a big bag of cotton balls and start making spiderwebs. it's as easy as pulling them apart, so you don't have to leave any corridor un-creepy. It's also a good idea to hit up a dollar store or party supplier for extras like skeletons, spiders,  and even severed limbs. If you want it to look like a proper haunted house, try putting some gravestones in the front yard! If you make them yourself you can choose exactly who goes in the ground.

Last but not least, no Halloween party is complete without a pumpkin! You might need your parents and friends to help you with this one since a trip out to the pumpkin patch and digging out the goopy gross insides can be a two person job. If you want to cheat you can buy plastic jack o' lanterns or carving kits to show you how to do it.

Killer Costumes

If you're the one throwing the party, then you can make the rules, and no one should be getting into this fright night without a rock solid costume. Checking out each other's costumes is the absolute best part of Halloween, so make sure that you've got that part planned out beforehand and don't forget to take pictures - you may never wear that costume again!

Add a scary soundtrack to your night and you're ready to have the best Halloween party yet!

In a recent interview with The PUNCH, the ‘Clinic Matters’ star said “I cannot act ude but like I have said before, if you pay me about $50m, I will. Please who is the first to pay? I can shave my hair because I’m an actress. If the role requires it, if it is a beautiful script and the money is good, I will do it. It will not be because it is the trend. It is not because Mercy Johnson did it, so I should, no, that is not enough reason. Right now, the script has to be outstanding for me to be interested in shaving off my hair.” On growing up, she said “I was a stubborn kid. I was never a tomboy. I don’t know how to bounce or sag for the world but stubborn, fighting for my rights and the rights of others, yes. I always wanted to defend others in need. That’s why often, they used to say I knew how to ‘buy’ other people’s matter. But my friends would say I had and will always have the heart of a child because no matter how much I fight you, I’ll always feel bad and be the first to tell you sorry.”If its you re you going to accept it nor reject it.  ALL I NEED IS TRUTH ANSWER  STATE  YOUR ANSWER BELOW THE SPACES. ........................................................................................................................................ ......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................                                                                                             Sign by Desmond

Like Kirsten said, do Windows updates first (From the start menu select 'Control Panel', then 'System and Security' (or something similar) then 'Windows updates'. After installing them the windows logo should appear in the bottom right of the screen

I haven't got the choice to update.. If you have windows 7 or 8, make sure the latest updates for your computer are installed. A "get windows 10 app" should appear on the toolbar, bottom right. Click that, reserve your copy, and it'll download and eventually notify you to install.  To get mine, I had to manually check for and install updates from the web first. My mom's had it already there. It all depends on your windows updates.
