Now that Halloween is just around the corner, you might be trying to think up of interesting ways to host and have fun during this fun period. Here are some options you can try out other than just dressing up in a costume and taking the kids Trick ‘r’ Treating.
Murder Mystery Dinner Party : Who doesn’t love a good whodunnit story? For a memorable party theme, serve up a little mystery along with dinner. It’s a great way to keep guests engaged and entertained.
Spooky Skeleton Scavenger Hunt : Keep your little monsters entertained this Halloween by throwing a skeleton scavenger hunt party. Hide faux bones around your yard or house and send the kids out to find them all.
Backyard Horror Movie Night : Invite friends over for a backyard horror movie night this Halloween! (You could also screen It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown for a more kid friendly event.) All you need to create your own outdoor theater experience is a blank wall or sheet and a portable projector (you’ll hook it up to your laptop or another device). Set up comfy seating and DIY a creepy concession stand.
Haunted House Party : Break out the spooky decorations and music, and recruit some friends to help you with the scaring.
Spooky Supper Party : Invite your bravest friends for a frightening, adults-only dinner party. For the most spooktacular setting, decorate your dining room table with black linens, dishes, utensils, serving pieces, and candleholders, as well as few creepy curiosities, like your child’s stuffed animals and passed-down antique tchotchkes. Then to make things even eerier, serve and eat your scary dinner—vampire cocktails, mummy baked brie, eyeball pasta, bloody cheesecake—entirely by candlelight.
Halloween Craft Party : Both kids and adults alike will enjoy a craft-making party. You pick the project and provide the supplies and guests can bring a snack for everyone to enjoy.
Pumpkin-Carving Party : Get into the Halloween spirit by hosting a pumpkin-carving competition. Winner takes home a freshly baked pie. Check out our clever pumpkin carving ideas here.
