The season of the witches and wizards is here! Halloween is probably the best holiday for both kids and adults. Dressing up as witches or any fictional character and planning parties are just the hype of this season. Planning the perfect Halloween party is just as amazing as it is to decide everything about the party.

So to help you out, here are some points you will need to consider when planning the perfect party!

 

 

• Pick a theme
Setting a theme for a party is always easy as the decorations will be available. Try traditional ideas like a costume party or a marathon of scary movies. Some ideas can be dead celebrities, murder mysteries or cartoon characters!

• Set a date and time
Setting the date and time is important as your guests will have to mark their calendar for your party. It’s important that all guests are told the same schedule. It can be on Halloween night or before that, it totally depends on your choice!

• Make a guest list and send invites
Make your list ahead of setting the time and date as you will need to provide for all these guests. Don’t forget sending the invites! Also double check with all your guests days prior to your party.

• Plan your costume
Around Halloween, it’s easier to find the costumes you would want to wear. There are almost sales everywhere you go. You can always customize your costumes with materials available at home.

• Plan the decorations
Decorating for Halloween can be hectic as you would want your party to be memorable. Yes, it can be memorable but try not to overdo it! Look for decorations that are according to your theme and according to what you can afford. Decoration does not mean the furniture covers or hanging spiders, you can always decorate with your foods. I don’t mean to play with the food, but be creative with the food. Try looking up for Halloween specials on the internet!

• Drinks and food
Spending your time in the kitchen for Halloween is inadvisable! So it’s better if you prepare the food and drinks for your guests beforehand. You can always hire caterers to help you out or just order pizza for the lot you have invited. It’s always handy to do so!

 

• Plan games
If you feel like your party is going to be boring, then games are the best solution! Plan some board games or some spooky games to liven up your party.
