A theme is what sets the spirit of a party! So, before planning for any party deciding the theme is very important. Being a Halloween party, the theme has to be something spooky! You can go for a costume party where everyone will come dressed up as someone or something, other than that you can put props around the house, for example, fake skeleton, jack-o-lantern which is basically carved pumpkin with lights inside it or make some Halloween themed drinks and snacks! You can also throw a scary movie night party, playing a few horror films keeping everyone on the edge!

2. Plan your Costume for a Great Halloween Party:

If you’re on a budget it is better to set the value at your place or maybe at your friend’s place because renting out some venue might be expensive. Now set a date, you can either throw a party on Halloween’s eve or on some other day if you’re planning to invite a lot of people. Throwing a Halloween party will be best enjoyed in the night time, so you can pick some time after sunset and let the eeriness of the night set the mood and do its magic!

4. Send Invites for a Great Halloween Party:

So, choose a spooky Halloween themed template and send it to your guest-list! Make sure you tell everyone to come in their Halloween costumes since what is Halloween even without funky costumes.

For decoration, to add spookiness to the party, put probs like skeleton cut-outs in the entrance, place some wool to look like cobwebs at the corners around the ceiling. Place some jack-o-lantern carved pumpkins at random places around the house, lanterns and candles instead of main lights to make your place feel even scarier! You can also prepare some Halloween themed drinks and snacks for you and your guests to experience the ultimate Halloween feels!
