Now that you have your cheap adult costume it’s time to think about what you will do on Halloween. Maybe you have been invited to a Halloween party or perhaps you will throw one yourself.
If you’re having your own party plan well in advance because some of your friends may be having the same idea or perhaps you can get together with some of your closest friends and all of you can plan a Halloween jamboree together.
Don’t forget to check when Halloween is since you will want to have the party on a Friday or Saturday evening so it may fall right on Halloween or just before. A great thing to do is to come up with a theme for your event. If you don’t wish to have a roomful of oddly assorted characters then having a theme like perhaps the 60’s you’re sure to have some wonderful surprises and your friends will find it easier to decide what to be with it all coming down to one subject.
Once you have come up with a theme for your Halloween bash the next thing to do is to get invitations.
Say your theme has to do with monsters the more frightening and interesting your invitations will be the more interested your friends will be to attend your party. Don’t forget to add an R.S.V.P. date so that you can plan all the food and decorations that you will need and stay within budget.
There are very many different Halloween decorations and food ideas available on-line. Remember the traditional carved pumpkins. Having a party you may wish to choose carving several pumpkins and placing them in strategic positions in the room from which they will throw strange, spooky shadows. You may wish to take two pumpkins and draw faces on them but not carve them, then cut off the top and clean them out. Now you have two unique punch bowls you can fill with red, black or green punch.
Black and orange balloons are great. The more you have the more you can pop at certain moments at the party to make your guests jump especially if you have a room full of ghouls. Whatever your party theme you can still turn your house into a haunted palace by buying things like special accessories from which you can created spider webs and hang giant rubber spiders.
When considering food the best idea for a Halloween party is finger food. Lovely ideas like making cheese balls that appear as if they have mold on them or are old and rotten. If you’re talented you can make cheese balls which appear like cut off heads using large olives for eyeballs, red pepper strips for leering mouths and so on. Make a taco dip and stick in taco chips which appear to be tombstones and drip some taco sauce over them to look like blood dripping down. Tasty chicken fingers which appear bloody sticking out of shredded lettuce. The ideas are endless and the Internet is there to help you decide.
