Are you the host of this year’s Halloween party? If so, prepare to get spooky because we’ve compiled the most enchanting tips and ideas to ensure you and your guests will have a wicked good time!
1.) Set a spooky scene.
Get guests to arrive in a festive mood by picking a Halloween party theme. It could be a traditional costume party or haunted house, or you can even surprise guests with something unique like decades or a masquerade.
ClosetMaid Tip: Setting a theme can help you pick out costumes and narrow down decorations.
2.) Ghoulish games.
Engage your company with a thrilling game everyone can be involved in. Try pumpkin bocce, a costume contest or villain trivia. If kids are involved, play Monster Mash musical chairs, witches’ hat ring toss or a Frankenstein freeze-dance.
