Are you’re looking to add a little spooky flavour to your haunted celebration that is sure to keep all your little ghouls, ghosts and goblins in a festive mood? Look no further for the perfect ideas to dress up those Halloween treats as we show you how to host the perfect scary gathering.
Halloween is the perfect time to throw on a costume and act like a kid. Of course, you want friends and family there to take part in the spooky fun, so here are a few tips to make sure your party is remembered long after the witches put away their cauldrons:
Creepy Halloween decor, such as spider webs and carved pumpkins, can be placed around the house and terrace or balcony to help get guests into the spirit. Halloween-themed music, such as Monster Mash and movies, such as Dracula and Frankenstein, can help offset any down time and get your guests in a spooky mood.
Bobbing for apples is a Halloween tradition you can’t leave out. Halloween bingo or a pin the tail on the donkey or camel-type game, such as pin the nose on a skull, can also add to the fun. Or try a treasure hunt for a ghost ship’s loot by scattering clues around the house that lead to ghastly goodies.
Add a costume contest to the mix and hand out prizes to some of the best. Try breaking the contest into a few categories or by age and awarding prizes, such as most creative, judge’s choice and crowd favourite.
