Deck out your party space in fall touches like classic pumpkins or faux spider webs. Little pieces of decoration here and there add to the room such as long candles in old fashioned candelabras or a flower arrangement with eyeballs.
If you’re feeling like a “haunted house vibe” is the route you want to take, check out a Halloween shop for some eerie animatronics, or spooky skeleton props. Hang sheets covered with fake blood over your normal walls and ceilings. Create fake “pickled organs” using peeled vegetables, cauliflower or fake floating brains, try a ghost made of chicken wire in your yard, and add some fake blood to guest’s hand towels in the bathroom!
Food & Drink
Serve up some tasty Halloween-themed treats and seasonal snack foods. Pumpkin seeds are a tasty, salty option and you could also satisfy your guests’ sweet teeth by scattering Halloween candy around your party location.
