Halloween is just around the corner again. People are already planning great parties for October 31th and they should have some exceptional ideas at hand. So we came up with 5 essentials for your spooky event. Take a seat and enjoy!

Costume contest

There’s no better way to motivate your guests than a costume contest. This will drive them to great ideas for original outfits. You can select the award you prefer for the winner, from money to liquor or gift cards. Remember to notify your invitees that you are going to do this contest, because that’s the best way for them to be aware and design an awesome Halloween costume.

Pumpkin carving

Halloween has always been a festivity related to ghosts, vampires, witches, and, especially, carved pumpkins. That last one is an all-time favorite and it’s something everyone is curious about. Cut a hole on the top of the pumpkin to make space for a lantern or a candle. Then carve the face. You can also carve forms to avoid repeating the same design in other pumpkins. We promise you´ll have lots of fun doing this and your guest will be pleased with the decoration.


There’s no Halloween without candy, so make sure to put some in bowls located all over your party. Also you can make your guests go home with a gift bag full of candies. They will appreciate that!

Spooky snacks

Halloween is fully thematic. There’s no doubt about it, so try to check every detail: from décor to food. Here we have some ideas for spooky snacks: brain dip, ghost-shaped cookies, witch chicken fingers, spider cupcakes, and many more.

Spider web everywhere!

There are so many options when it comes to decorating a Halloween party. We already told you to include carved pumpkins among those alternatives. Another idea is to buy lots and lots of synthetic spider web to put on the walls and over tables and sofas. It’s easy, cheap and fast, in case you’re looking for something simple but likable.
