Choose a Theme:
In order to set your party about from the rest, you’ll want to choose a theme. A simple black and orange party or a haunted house theme are always crowd pleasing options. If you really want to be festive, go the pop-culture route, and choose an American Horror Story Theme or  a really creepy theme modeled after your a favorite horror movie.  If you’re not into spooky stuff, opt for a fun Harry Potter theme or stick with traditional ghosts and pumpkins.

No Halloween gathering would be complete without decorations–that’s what makes the whole party! Depending on your budget you can keep the decorations cute and simple or go all out, dressing your lawn and front of your house. A smoke machine, red handprints on the wall, and creepy cobwebs are always staples and can be used no matter what your theme.

Food & Drinks:
If you want to throw a really epic party, you’re going to have to get creative and serve more than pizza, beer and chips. There are tons of fun and festive recipes to choose from. Vampire caramel apples, mummy puff pastry appetizer and crunch donut eyeballs are just a few treat ideas to scare and satisfy your guests. For scary treat recipes, visit here, while these seriously chilling Blood Orange cocktails will keep the party going all night.

Even if music isn’t a main focus of your party, it’s important to keep it playing in the background to tie all of the details together. Halloween classics like “Monster Mash” or “Thriller” will keep your guests entertained and in a “witchy”mood.
