Whether you have an adult
Halloween costume party or a children's party, you want it
to be the best it can be. With the right planning, you can
make this years party the best ever!
ADULT HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY
With some planning, you can
have a great party. You'll need to plan invitations, food,
drink, decorations and music. Decide on if you want a theme,
say, Vampires, the 50's, Famous Monsters of Hollywood or
something else. Will you give prize to the best
dressed person or couple? You'll need prizes of some kind.
You'll have to plan your food
and rink around how many people you invite. Smaller numbers
might get away with snacks rather than a meal. You can find
all kinds of food ideas at
Wanda's Halloween Coolbook. Recipes for main meals,
dips, pies and more can be found here.
Decorating can be costly so
check discount stores for Halloween decor. You'll find
plenty of paper plates designed for Halloween and everything
to go with them. Inexpensive decorations are plentiful at
this time of year as well. You'll find some ideas in our
Halloween Decorations section to help you out.
Looking for the perfect
costume ideas? Check out the
Costume and Make-up section here as well. If you throw
a couples party, there are lots of couples costumes to
choose from every year. You don't have to have a theme, let
people come dressed as they want. It will make for an
interesting party to see what people dress up as on the one
night a year they can be anything they want to be.
You can basically use the
ideas for the adult party and scale them down for kids. Add
some games in to keep them busy. You'll find many in our
Halloween Party Games section.
If Halloween is on a week day, have the party the week-end
before. Afternoon is a good time for the party but night
time makes a Halloween party a bit creepier for kids. Have a
scavenger hunt in the back yard, tell spooky stories around
a fire. Make it a party the kids will never forget!
With a little
advanced planning, some helpful ideas and your own
creativity, you can throw the best Halloween party of your
