No matter how old or young we are, there is something magical about Halloween. Hosting or attending a Halloween party gives us a chance to play a character, adopt a new persona for the night, and have fun with friends and family. We’ve picked ten of our favorite party themes to share with you.
When it comes to party planning, it’s easy to use the WeInvite platform and find what you need, including entertainment, catering, bartenders, decorations, and invitations -- all in one place
Have fun and happy haunting – whether it’s virtual or in person, WeInvite can help!
A party designed around conversation and action! Choose your story and guide (we found excellent options by Masters of Mystery). Many mystery kits include the deck, script, audio files, evidence packs, and character descriptions. How about invitations? There are countless e-vites and printed invites on the market; we found some cool ones on Etsy.
What about food and beverages? Consider having a “Pick Your Poison” bar with cocktails such as a Corpse Reviver, a Skeleton Key made with Varchas or your favorite bourbon whiskey. Since this is a dinner party, tie the menu to your mystery’s setting or the story. Menu courses can be served between story scenes to encourage conversation. WeInvite makes it easy to get what you need!
Host friends and family for a backyard movie that’s fun for everyone. The film can be a classic, like Halloween, or suited for young kids, like It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown. An option is to set up hay bales for “theater seats” and serve popcorn, finger foods, candy, and beverages. We found fun Halloween snack recipes on Insanely Good, such as mini-spider pizzas and mummy brie.
A fun option for adults, tweens, and teens! Set up your laptop or phone and connect to speakers, run a danceable playlist; you have a party waiting to happen! WeInvite can link you with DJs, caterers, bartenders, performers, and more to make the host’s work easier. You could incorporate themes, like a “glow party” with glow-in-the-dark party supplies, glow sticks, and more; the kids will be all smiles! For adults, use your glowing supplies for a “Halloween Rave!” More ideas: a “Mad Masquerade” or “Boos and Brews.”
