FRIDAY THE 13TH PARTY


While not actually a Halloween party, hosting a Friday the 13th. party is a great way to dispel the "I wish it were Halloween" blues and are a lot of fun. 2012 there will be a Friday the 13th. in April and July. Sadly, there won't be a Friday the Thirteenth in the month of October until 2017.

Entertainment
We usually watch Friday the 13th. parts one and two, but you can watch any of them you wish. Both of these movies are under an hour and a half long, so you can watch them both during the course of your party.

Friday The 13th. on DVD
Twenty years after a drowning and a pair of murders shut it down, Camp Crystal Lake is reopening -- against the better judgment of skeptical locals. The new owner scoffs at the camp's "death curse," but when the teenage counselors start to drop, he begins to reconsider. Gruesome makeup and effects, a nubile cast and a psycho-killer for the ages make this a slasher classic.

Intermission
This is a good time to discuss the first movie and refresh everyone's food and beverage.

Friday The 13th. Part 2 on DVD
Five years after the horrible bloodbath at Camp Crystal Lake, it seems Jason Voorhees and his demented mother are in the past. Paul opens up a new camp close to the infamous site, ignoring warnings to stay away, and a sexually-charged group of counselors follow -- including child psychologist major Ginny. But Jason has been hiding out all this time, and now he's ready for revenge.


Decorations
Decorations are the mainstay of any type of party, and this one is no different. Fortunately, there are many different types of decorations and props based on the Friday the 13th. movies and Jason, there main character to create a really great mood.

Jason Door Topper
One of our favorite decorations for our Friday the 13th. party is the "Jason Door Topper". This large Halloween decoration features a life-sized hockey-mask wearing Jason Voorhees carrying a bloody machete on top and tattered black cloth that flows down below it for your guests to walk through.

This door topper can be mounted over standard sized doors or even a similarly sized window. Its up to you whether you hang it on the inside or outside of your front door. The door topper measures around 35" wide by 11" high, not including the 83" long black fringed curtain. This great Halloween or Friday the 13th. decoration is available from several online retailers.

Plus, you can use the "Jason Door Topper" as a creepy Halloween decoration as well.

Friday the 13th Camp Crystal Lake Sign
A great way to welcome your honored guests to your killer campground or in this case, party with this "Camp Crystal Lake" sign.

This plastic sign measures 16.5 inches by 8.25 inches in size. You can mount it on your wall, on or next to your front door or just about anywhere you want.  Can also be used as a table center-piece.

Halloween Party - Friday the 13th Party Decorations

Jason Scene Setter
These life-size movie killer posters are impressive and yet very affordable. The set includes two large Jason Voorhees decals. One is in a normal view and the other is a shadowed silhouette. The normal view Jason measures sixty-five inches by thirty-three and a half inches. The Shadow Jason measures thirty inches by thirteen inches.

Both posters are made of thin vinyl so they can be easily hung indoors or out. We attach the "normal view" scene setter to one wall inside the house and the "shadow silhouette" version to the outside of the front door.

 This is a very menacing decoration to use in combination with other Camp Crystal Lake Halloween decorations. The "Jason Scene Setters" are currently available online from various retailers.

Jason Room Rolls
This set of "Jason Room Rolls" contains two complete rolls of a creepy wall covering, both measuring four feet high by twenty-five feet wide. The top roll looks like the forest at Camp Crystal Lake.

The bottom roll  is the reflection of the forest on the water. Can be used either indoors or outdoors. We cover an entire wall with this wall covering and then hang the Camp Crystal Lake sign on it.

While you can use tape or thumb tacks to attach the room roll material to the walls, we prefer to use Sticky Tack.

Sticky Tack is a non-toxic, sticky clay-like adhesive that is used to temporarily attach light-weight material such as posters, banners and in this case the room rolls to walls.

Food & Beverage
We usually serve cake and punch to our guests before watching the first movie and then sit out the bloody pop-corn just before we start the first movie.

Tableware
There are many decorations based on the Friday the 13th. movies and Jason, there main character including:

Bloody Tablecloth
The "Bloody Tablecloth" is a perfect table cover for a Friday the Thirteenth massacre, Halloween party or if you just want to freak-out your friends and family. You can also use it as a base to place Halloween props on as part of a gory Halloween display. This vinyl tablecloth measures a full fifty-four inches by one-hundred and eight inches in size.

Blood Red Tableware
For our Friday the 13th. party tableware we wanted to stick with the blood theme, so we chose to use plain, red colored paper plates, dinner sized napkins and red plastic forks, knives and spoons. These are usually available at your local party store year round. The plastic cups are not necessary if you use either the "Jason Shot Glasses" or "Jason Goblets" to serve your beverages from.

Jason Serving Bowl
This large serving bowl is embossed with Jason Voorhees complete with hockey mask and his trusty machete on one side and says "Friday the 13th" on the other. We have two of these great bowls. One that acts as a punch bowl for our Blood Punch and the other to serve Bloody Pop-corn from.

Jason Shot Glasses
These shot glasses match the design of the Jason Serving Bowl above and are a perfect set. One set includes two shot glasses.

Jason Goblets
These seven inch tall plastic goblets are perfect for serving your punch or other beverages in. They are textured and painted with the Jason hockey mask.

Halloween Party Cups
 

While there are many "bad luck" associations with the number thirteen, the fear of Friday the 13th as a combined date of the month and day of the week was most likely created during the middle ages, when on a Friday the 13th in 1306, King Philip of France arrested, tortured and then murdered the revered Knights Templar.
