Choose a Halloween Party Theme

Before you know it, it will be October 31st. Where will you be and what will you be doing on that date? If you are planning a Halloween party, here are some great ideas to keep your party eerie, frightening, and fun.

Start with Spooky

Halloween is the one time of year when it is permitted to scare the 'be-jeebers' out of everybody. Nothing is off limits; the spookier, the better. Fine tune your scare tactics and bring your most ghoulish dreams to reality with a spooky Halloween party.

Pick a Theme

You may want your party to revolve around something hideous and creepy, but there are so many variations on that idea. Here are some themes you can use for the different age groups:

Youth Theme Party Ideas

Scary Monster Theme
Bad Guy Theme
Favorite Movie or Television Character
Jack-o-lantern Costume Theme
Princess Costume Theme

With kids, the possibilities are endless because they have so many interests, not the least of which is dressing up… for everything!

Teenage Theme Party Ideas

Vampire Party
Favorite Undead Character
Favorite Ghoulish Mask
Twilight
Psychedelic

Using the same basic concept for teens as for younger children, you just think of popular television and movie characters and stories and pick a theme. For teenagers, just step it up a notch and give them more bizarre options. Throw out some ideas and let your teen run with it.

Adult Theme Party Ideas
So Sexy Monster Theme
Murder Mystery Night
Re-visit the 60s 70s 80s 90s
Nightie Night Pajama Party

If you are throwing an all-adult party, be sure to plan for a long night. Make it fun and worth the extra effort it takes to plan and execute a costume to fit the theme. Find a babysitter whose willing to stay into the wee hours so you and your guests can howl at the moon. Couple parties as well as all-girl or guys night parties are especially fun for Halloween. Create some fun with this night away from the stress of work and family responsibilities.

The Planning

As with any party, the first step is the planning. If Halloween falls on a weekend, great. Otherwise, choose a non-workday and non-school day that's close to Halloween for the best result. If you pick a day too far before or after Halloween, you will lose the festive feeling. Unlike Christmas, the 'season' for Halloween is short.

Halloween falls on the same day every year, so we all know it's coming, and when! Sometimes the success of a party boils down to who gets their invitations out first. You will need to send out invitations before the social calendars fill up. Hash out the particulars of your party and let everyone know about the theme so they can get their costumes together. Once the invitations are out, get the decorations and food planned and ready. And, don't forget your own costume!

Pick a theme for your Halloween party this year to make it even more spectacular. Make the theme scary if you like, or just make it fun. It doesn't matter just as long as everyone's having a good time!
