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!

Wow... Boy have I grown. To anybody reading this, whether you a be a past friend or current user, I really hope you're well. I've changed a lot since I've been here. Since I've left. I want you guys, my old friends (should you be reading this), to know a few things. No, I probably won't be back. Not for a very very long time. Yes, I miss you all. So very much. As said, I truely hope you're all still well and happy. And I want you to know I'm happy too. After I left this site, I really found myself, as cheesy as it may sound. But I'm happier now. Not completely happy, but I'm happier. And now, something that everyone could hear. Something that everyone should hear. I hope you all have a great life, for life is a gift we are given so very little of. Use it as you will, but be wise with it. Let nobody else deprive you because of the color of your skin, the thoughts on your mind, or the love in your heart. You're all so very beautiful and smart, in you're own grand way. You deserve this gift you've been given. Each and everyone of you. If you ever think that no one seems to care, always remember that even if you don't know me and I don't know you, I care. I care so very very much. I'll see you another time KW. My stay has been the most grand. Thank you all so much.
