Dressing up in costumes, decorating the house, planning scary games, and eating delicious treats can only mean one thing – Halloween is (almost) here! Halloween is one of our favorite opportunities for one last social event before the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
Thinking about throwing a Halloween party, but aren’t quite sure how or where to start? Read on for our helpful tips and tricks for throwing the BEST Halloween bash!
Bats, cats, and ghosts – oh my! Decorating for Halloween parties is half the fun of throwing them. First, pick a theme. Whether you prefer a ghoulish, spooky ambience or a classic, harvest atmosphere, find unexpected ways to design the look and feel of your party.
Now that your place is looking festive, it’s time to focus on your monster munchies. Turn ordinary party snacks into clever and creative Halloween treats by serving food and drinks inspired by your theme. If you’re going for a spooky theme, turn your typical pigs in a blanket into mummy dogs, and turn your punch bowl into a cauldron for your witch’s potion. This is a playful and festive twist that your guests will LOVE. Don’t have the time to get creative with your recipes? Order ahead of time! You can even take advantage of same-day-delivery to make things even easier. Whether it’s a frightful centerpiece or grab-and-go treats, we’ve got you covered.

Games like pop the pumpkin, bobbing for apples, witch’s hat toss, or candy corn count are fun ways to get your guests involved and keep them entertained. You can even host a costume contest and hand out prizes for different categories! Need some spook-tacular party activity inspiration?
