Halloween parties is not all about a house decorated with pumpkins- where half of the audience would come wearing some paper skeletons (rest would be least interested in performing) and the tone of the entire setting is influenced by a creepy Halloween song. Halloween fun is much more than that! It is about interesting costumes, exciting accessories, groovy setting and unique ideas compiled in one exuberant party. So in case you are about to throw a Halloween bash, here is what you need to do in order to make it the most remarkable one. Have a look at the party preparation tips!
Plan for a perfect 'Location': Ideally, Halloween parties are expected at homes but you can also make it an outdoor event. Work hard on the 'Wh' factors- where to throw the party, who all will be invited, what will be the theme, how many people will be attending it and what are the timing details.
Set a 'Theme' for the Party: Though Halloween in itself is a theme but it is too broad as a concrete theme! Make it narrow and a bit more specific. For instance, throw a party where every participant has to wear Sclera contact lenses. Other than this, you can also choose themes like Ghost, Dead Celebrity, Zombies, Clowns, Monsters and Vampires ( no denying the fact, these themes have been overused. Use something as innovative a sclera lenses).
Set a 'Theme' for the Party:If it's a party, people will always be thirsty and hungry. As a host, it becomes your duty to keep an appealing menu on track. Focus on the snacks and drinks, rather than just on the main course- appoint bartenders, use big glasses, keep everything organized and clean.
Keep the Entertainment Quotient Intact: You can either plan a small skit or a game for breaking the ice initially. The entertainment planning is directly related to the theme of the party. For instance, if the theme is of clowns then plan a Halloween circus for the party. The decoration could be old and wearied like a worn-out Circus theater- capture the feel of distress and gloominess in the mysterious setting. Rest, you can also go for DJ war or LIVE BAND for planning entertainment in your party.
Make the Decoration Interesting: Decoration decides the 'mood' and sets the 'feel' of the party! Once the theme is decided, plan the entire lighting and arrangement as per the theme. Use a lot of dark shade accessories and decorative for creating the right feel. For decoration, it is suggested to create pre-dedicated corners as in game stalls. For instance, a stall with 'Mummy Wrapped' can be used for both contest and decoration. Similarly, you can create stalls for Scavenger Hunt, Pass the Pumpkin, Ghost Stories, murder mystery and so on. Invite volunteers who could manage the stalls!
But above all, focus on the costumes, makeup, contact lenses and accessories for creating the right Halloween feel! Step ahead with something unique- this is what people will always appreciate in your Halloween party!
