Gothic Halloween Party
All things grey and black – create the perfect gothic ambience with ravens in a cage, spiderwebs, white skulls, antique candelabras and portraits of scary ancestors. Cover up portraits with lace to make it creepy. Play goth music and light up the venue with candles. To make it more interesting, get your attendees to dress up as members of The Addams Family.
The Haunted House Party
Create a haunted house and organize a scavenger hunt inside the house with creepy characters hiding in corners that pop out to scare the hell out of you. Make a spooky graveyard outside your house and hide candies around dead and dry flowers. Let your guests find these cookies as a part of your scavenger hunt.
Halloween without Scooby-Doo and the gang is never any fun. You can create a Mystery Machine using cardboard and use it as a photo booth. Have your guests dressed up as Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma. Add spice to your party with some Scooby snacks your guests can munch on. Organize mystery games to find candies hidden in secret spots to make your party fun and interesting.

From flying ghosts, bloody footprints to pumpkin bonfires and glowing eyes in the bushes, you can spring out a whole lot of crazy ideas an outdoor event.
Halloween Movie Night
Invite your guests over for a Halloween movie night out. Think of the scariest movie that will make your Halloween movie night a night to remember. Some movies to consider are some classics like Friday the 13th, Halloween Series, Nightmare on Elm Street Series, Walking Dead and so on. Have your attendees write their choices on a piece of paper, mix them up in a bowl and pick one. You can play pranks that’ll make your blood run cold in a minute while your guests’ eyes are focused on the movie.
The Witches Night
Deck up your venue with witchcraft themed decor like black cats, cauldron with dry ice and lights to create the fake smoke effect, ouija boards and a witches book full of spells. Keep a corner reserved for the broom and hats your guests will bring. For dinner, you can serve your guests ‘Witches-Hair pasta’ made of squid ink oil and a lot of garlic, witch fingers, jello worms and cheesy chicken stuffed skulls. Use witch-faces stirrers in your cocktails. For desserts, simply serve the favorite – the devilish chocolate cupcakes with a witches black hat topping.
Host a Halloween murder-mystery party. Create a background story about the murder and let your guests get into character. Organize mysterious games with hints about who the murderer could be. Create a thrilling environment with some bizarrely lit dense fog and dark silhouette. To make it interesting, give away prizes to everyone who is able to solve each clue.
Harry Potter Party
Invite your guests with a Hogwarts Acceptance Letter sealed with a DIY stamp on it. Let them know in the letter the house they’ve been assigned to – Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, Gryffindor or Slytherin.
