It’s hard to believe that October is already here! You’ve likely already gotten out the pumpkins and begun brainstorming your Halloween costume. After all, there’s nothing quite as exciting as getting ready on Halloween night for an evening of candy, costumes, and fun! Do you have your Halloween plans yet? If not, why not host a Halloween party? With these tips and tricks, you’ll throw the perfect Halloween party.

Set a Spooky Scene

First things first: decorations! Whether you want to create a scary setting or simply a fun, colorful environment, there are many ways you can decorate your home for Halloween. A fog machine, an abundance of candles, and fake spider webs can create a haunting vibe for your party. On the other hand, bright pumpkins, string lights, and fall-themed decor create an autumnal, warm environment. No matter what you’re going for, be sure to decorate to set the scene for your party.

Stock Up on Snacks

The key to any good party? Snacks, of course! The best part is that these snacks can be Halloween-themed for some added fun. You can get some inspiration for these spooky snacks from websites like Pinterest. For instance, these Silly Halloween Spider Cookies by Thrifty Jinxy could be the perfect addition to your party! Or, keep it simple and healthy with this Pumpkin Veggie Tray by Keeping the Peas. Browse Pinterest to find inspiration for some perfect party snacks.

Get the Drinks Flowing

The party doesn’t start until the drinks are served! For your party, perhaps you could try making a fall cocktail to serve to guests. This is not only the key to every party, but the fall-themed cocktail will fit perfectly with the rest of the evening. For the adults, try making this Poison Apple Cocktail by Buzzfeed or this Boogeyman Brew by Who Needs a Cape. For those under 21, there are plenty of non-alcohol drink recipes you can make, like this Slow Cooker Vampire Punch by Boulder Locavore!

Let the Games Begin!

Last but certainly not least, make sure there are a few games for everyone to play! They could be Halloween-themed or simply a fun card game. For a spooky game, try Pick Your Poison from Amazon! This card game is essentially a game of “Would You Rather,” perfect for kids, teens, and adults. Or, try one of these games from Good Housekeeping like Pumpkin Tic Tac Toe or Cup Knock Down. No matter what you choose, everyone is sure to have a great time!

Now that you have all the tips and tricks to throw the perfect Halloween party, it’s time to invite your friends for a night of fun! As always, please drink responsibly and be courteous of your neighbors. Whether it’s a Halloween party for the kids or if it’s a gathering of your friends, it will be a night that everyone will remember! Still looking for a costume?
