Tips for Throwing an Epic Halloween Party

Halloween is a time for spooky costumes, pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating. But it’s also an excellent excuse to throw the party of the year! If you’re feeling overwhelmed with the idea of hosting an epic bash for your friends or family, we’ve got some tips that will make throwing a great Halloween party easy.

Jello Brains for Halloween Party


Halloween parties are all about grossing people out, so make sure that the food you serve is Halloween themed. Some examples include eyeball soup (hot dogs cut up with ketchup for the “blood”), witch fingers cookies, spider web pizza, handburgers (a spin on a normal hamburger but using cooked sausage patties instead of ground beef). Don’t forget some tasty Halloween snacks like meatloaf cupcakes, mummy dogs, pumpkin ravioli, and more!

How to Throw and Epic Halloween Party

Dress Up

This is one of the best parts about a Halloween party in seeing what everyone dressed up as. You can be whoever you want on this day, just put your creativity to work and go crazy with it. 

Some like to do a theme such as 80’s night, zombies, vampires, etc. This is the perfect way to set the mood for your party and it’s so much fun when all of your friends show up in their costumes too! Don’t forget to take pictures of everyone in their costumes for a night to remember!

Halloween Party Decorations


This is the finishing touch for any party and you want to make sure that your decorations fit whatever theme or vibe you’re going for. Choose either simple or go all out spooky with skeletons, blood splatter balloons, spiders, cobwebs, glow sticks and more. There are lots of DIY tutorials online and some items can even be found at the Dollar Store so there’s no need to spend too much. 


Halloween parties typically have type of theme when it comes to games. Halloween parties for children usually have games like bobbing for apples and Halloween party games with treats. For adults, Halloween is all about scaring people so Halloween party games involving scary props or telling spooky Halloween jokes are most common.

Nothing helps break the ice or get people mingling like some good games. You want to have at least one game of charades or Heads Up for your party, but you can also do more than that if there are enough people attending!


A Halloween Party wouldn’t be complete without some spooky music! You can choose whatever you want, but we recommend anything from John Carpenter and Danny Elfman.

Add some fun to your Halloween party with the right music. There are many artists that have released great songs for this occasion, like Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga just to name a few. You can even create playlists on Spotify or download their tracks on iTunes!

Hopefully these tips will help you thrown an epic Halloween Party, so you can spend less time worrying and more time celebrating! Happy Halloween!

    I had a amazing Halloween party last year. We made a lot of party decorations and baked a lot of food. We put out two big plastic bowls of orange crisps on a low table and had sweets displayed on the table as well. We played various fun games. One classic example of a game that we played was to eat the pumpkin. Basically we split up into pairs and tried to eat a pumpkin all whilst our hands were tied and we were blindfolded. Next we played a game that involved us telling spooky and creepy tales. The last ever one was to predict the name of the black cat. We wrote down all of our name suggestions on a sheet of paper and read them out to each other.
