With the unanticipated pandemic this year, Halloween celebrations are bound to be unique. You could plan on a virtual get-together with a masquerade party or could even plan on celebrating the night keeping six feet distance yet keeping things stylish and spooky.

Here are a few tips on throwing a Halloween partyto commemorate this already extraordinary and bizarre year.

  • Spooky Décor

Decorate your party venue by creating an eerie ambience to bring in the Halloween cheer. Being creative without stressing out is not difficult with simple DIY ideas like adorning candy corn around a candle or hanging a few cut-outs of foam bats to get your guests into the spirit of Halloween.

  • Sinister Party Tunes

Create a playlist with tunes complementing the ominous ambience of Halloween. You can get a ready-made playlist from YouTube or else you can get creative and just take inspiration from various music sites. Having an unnerving backdrop music to your party will get everyone into the Halloween mood.

  • Get Creative with the Lighting

Appropriate lighting is bound to set the right Halloween vibe. Lower down the lights of your house and create a dingy setting with either all-blue, all-red or all-green lighting. You could even go in for those glow-in-the-dark creepy pair of eyes to liven up the night.

  • Have a Costume Contest

The Halloween evening is incomplete without ghoulish get-ups and savage costumes accompanying it. So, get creative and paint your face or do up your hair to complement the costume you intend to wear. You could plan to host a costume party and have some chilling skeleton trophies as gifts or party favors for all.

  • The Scary Movie Thrill

You and your gang could binge watch scary movies together on Netflix. A night spent watching freaky horror flicks, with lots of friends sounds like a Halloween full of fun and frights. 

Host the ultimate fright fest with our Halloween party tips and tricks to make it a night to remember.
