Halloween Party Planning Tips

Oct 06, 2015

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!

And its just better that way. because I've been homeschooled since 3rd grade and I'm in 8th grade now,  I have a very small social life. I have done stuff like dance and cheerleading but still, I only have one good friend (actually she is AWESOME!)

There are plenty of educational books, videos, and websites that are easily accessible online or from the library (seriously, Khan Academy and Crash Course saved my life, bless those men). nice! I have asked my local school but they refused because I'm not vaccinated (we don't believe in vaccines) but NY is one of the strictest  states for homeschool. we are moving and I might be able to go to high school but I could always stick with homeschool. With the social side, i have lots a lot of my social skills so now I'm really shy but i can work and fix that
