Fun Halloween Party Themes and Ideas
Halloween is day of year that has most parties thrown in its honor. Everyone loves to dress up and attend Halloween parties with their friends. Most people end up getting several invitations to different Halloween parties that are often on same night. If you are planning to throw your own Halloween party, how can you get all your friends to head to your shindig and not someone elseís? You need to come up with some unique and fun ideas that will get everyone on your list so excited about your party they wonít even consider going anywhere else.
Not Just Any Old Theme
Many people donít bother thinking of a theme for their Halloween party since it seems to be somewhat of a theme already. But rather than just putting up some Happy Halloween banners and fake cobwebs, why not come up with a great theme party idea? You can do anything from a haunted house or graveyard to a monster mash or horror movie bash. Once youíve chosen your theme apply it to everything from your invitations to your party food. Guests will love some guidance on what to dress up as, especially if you do something a little different.
Your Halloween party invitations are one of most important aspects of your party. Invitations are best way to get your guests excited about your party. Many people donít even send invitations anymore so even sending out simple ones will help your party stick in peopleís minds. Be sure to apply your party theme to your invitations. If you canít find any invitations at your local party store that go with your theme you can always use invitation templates that you can download for free from Internet.
You can totally customize invitation templates and add colorful pictures as well. Guests will love to receive these fun invitations in mail. You should send your invitations out approximately three to four weeks before your party to give everyone time to make plans to attend. If youíre running short of time sending electronic invitations is a great idea too. You can add animation and sound to e-invitations and even check guestís responses online. Be sure to contact anyone who doesnít respond via telephone since not everyone checks their email often.
Everyone will expect to see your house decorated to nines on Halloween so be sure not to disappoint. Your decorations should match your theme, so give them plenty of thought. For instance, a haunted house theme should be complete with low lighting, smoke, a spooky soundtrack, and even live ghouls to jump out and scare guests as they arrive. A horror movie bash might include retro horror B-movie posters stuck on walls which you can find on Internet and print off at home.
Decorations can be found just about anywhere in months leading up to Halloween. Even grocery stores carry a wide selection. Start shopping early so you can get best selection possible and take advantage of any sales. If you canít find just what youíre looking for you can always rent decorations from a local party supply shop or even purchase decorations from Internet. The Internet has an almost endless selection and you can find just about any party supplies or decorations youíll need.
