HOW TO CREATE A SPOOKY ATMOSPHERE WITH COSTUMES
Halloween costumes are a must! There are several different costume ideas. You could go for the funny costume option (an inflatable costume) the sexy costume option (a dark angel), the group costume option, or of course the SCARY costume option. Whatever costume you decide to go as, dressing up is a must for your guest at this party.

Having everyone in costume will definitely set the tone and create the atmosphere for a spooky night. The night will be full of laughs, silly photo opts and more.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR FOOD FRIGHTENING
HALLOWEEN THEMED FOOD IDEAS
Frighten your guest with Halloween inspired food. You can go about this by having normal looking food with creep and hilarious labels. For example: cauliflower ‘brains’, red grape ‘eyeballs’, noodle ‘worms’, etc. Or you could put general signs if you do not want to label each and every food item. For example ‘terrify treats’ or ‘eat at your own risk’.
To step it up a notch, create hideous labels with creative food layouts. For example:

HALLOWEEN THEMED DRINK IDEAS
When it comes to making terrifying beverages, the colors and labels are everything.
See hoe many of your guest are daring to take a drink that look and sound anything but satisfying.
HOW TO MAKE THE VENUE AS CREEPY AS POSSIBLE
THINK – dim candlelight in every room, spiderwebs hanging from the walls and ceiling, ghost floating throughout the venue, and spooky pumpkin carvings with flickering candles. Your venue can be very creative without having to spend a lot of money on decor.
WHAT GAMES TO PLAY THAT WILL GIVE YOU A SCARE
SCARY GHOST STORIES
Scary story telling is a great way to get the night started. This could be a great ice breaker for your party.
HOW TO PLAY: have everyone stand in line or form a circle in one area. The host will tell a short ghost story to the person at the front of the line; this person then goes on to whisper what they heard to the person behind/next to them. This will continue until it reached the back of the line. After the last person hears the story they will announce their version to the entire group. Most times the results are completely wrong and super hilarious, causing a bunch of laughter. The host can then tell everyone what the original ghost story was.
BEST HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST
Encourage guest to come dressed in their best costume idea by hosting a competition. All guest can have a moment to show off their costume in front of everyone, play some themed music in the background and create a runway. The host of he party can be the judge and decide who came and impressed the most.
MUMMY WRAP COMPETITION
To play this game create teams of 2-4 players, depending on the amount of guest you have. Give each team a few rolls of toilet paper. Set a timer for 2 minutes. See which group can wrap their mummy the fasted and also the best. The goal is to have the person be completely covered in toilet paper (other than their mouth and nose). Have fun mummifying!
HALLOWEEN FEEL BOX
Find a few boxes and decorate them according to the theme of the party. Cut a hole on the top of each box that is big enough for a hand to fit but small enough that the guest can’t see what is inside. Then place a unique item(s) in each box. Make them feel as gross as possible – it’s Halloween! Examples could be: noodles (worms), fuzzy pipe cleaners (spiders), over cooked rice (maggots), and pudding (mud).
When setting up for this game, place the boxes in a really dimly lit room. If you want to make it extra creepy spread spider webs across the boxes/table and incorporate some Halloween inspired decorations.
HALLOWEEN PHOTO BOOTH BACKDROP
Photo booths are the best way capture the night in one snap shot. You could go the DIY route or buy a Halloween backdrop from a store. Either way the backdrop should be scary. DIY – take a black sheet and decorate it with red paint to represent blood or spiderwebs with spiders.
You can also include props for your photos to make them more spooky:
