All October posts are part of the Countdown to Halloween!
I love Halloween parties! And I believe every Halloween lover should be hosting their own. Since 2009, I’ve been hosting my own annual Halloween party, and it’s taken me from wistfully wishing for the days of trick or treating to going full-on Halloween mode by July 15 every year.
In case you couldn’t guess given where you are in Internetland right now…Halloween parties are my jam.
My own party, Halloweenie Roast, started off with humble beginnings: just a few friends around a fire roasting hot dogs for fun. But the next year it went full-fledged party and has grown every year since.
And my friends have a lot of nice things to say about Halloweenie Roast:
So today I thought I’d share some of secrets for planning your own Halloween party. These are short and sweet, and if you think, “Yeah, I can totally do that!” then you’re definitely going to want to check out my free Halloween e-course, How to Plan a Killer Halloween Party, before it disappears for 2016.
My 5 secrets for planning a killer Halloween party:
- Pick a hauntingly good theme & killer colors
In my opinion, zero party planning can start until you have a theme and a couple colors to center everything around. Planning these two details makes the rest of my own party planning so simple.
- Plan a scary good menu
Whether I’m planning a full on dinner, appetizers or a potluck, I always make sure my menu is so good it’s scary. (Because who doesn’t love party food?)
- Create a killer playlist
If you’ve spent any amount of time around Spooky Little Halloween, you know I. LOVE. HALLOWEEN. MUSIC. Creating a killer playlist helps set the scene for your entire party.
- Plan spooky activities
You don’t have the cheapen your killer party with kiddie activities – planning one or two simple things for your guests to do will help the gathering feel more like an event and less like a hang out.
- Set up easy & creepy decor
Decorating for a party doesn’t have to be difficult OR expensive. Just a few detailed touches here and there will do.
That sounds great, Miranda…but, y’know, how do I actually DO all of this?
