It is already October. Not only fall has come but various holidays are just around the corner. The first on that list is Halloween. The first thing that will come to mind with that is spooky decorations, costume parties, and kids going out trick or treating. It is an occasion that you would think only the young will enjoy.
But it is not though. Adults cans also enjoy Halloween that does not only involve accompanying kids in trick or treating or answering doors for them. It is also not only about staying at home and watching scary movies to be festive. Why not also have some fun like having a party? What could you do with it, and how will it be prepared?
1. Halloween-Themed Food
Parties always have food and for Halloween, you could definitely have it themed and make it look creepy. You could make something that looks bloody like tomato soup or something with red streaks and sauces. You could also make cookies or cakes with Halloween designs in it. It is not only about the design but also the flavors of that season like pumpkin and apples. Whatever it will be, there are a lot of recipes and ideas you can look up online.
2. Halloween Decoration
Of course, to make it festive and give the ambiance, you will need the right decorations. It will surely be easy because you can definitely find something in stores at any price, so you will not be worried about your budget. You can even be creative and make them yourself or if you have some old stuff, you can fix them or revamp them to make them look brand new or even also repurpose some.
3. Fun Games and Activities
A party will be more fun with the activities involved. Like any other holiday party, it should go with the theme. There are some easy games that do not involve any materials like guessing games with questions, trivia, or charades. Then there are also activities that would need more effort and messy like pumpkin carving and eating food (apples and donuts for example) on.a string. You can also have something in your backyard like a scavenger hunt or guessing what is in the box for them to be really spooked or creeped out.
Having costumes is a tradition with Halloween whether with kids trick or treating or with parties for teenagers and adults. A nice say to give it a twist is having a theme like era-based (Victorian, 60s, etc.) or a masquerade (which are usually done formally) or any other. But of course, you could just have it traditionally and let your guests dressed however they want. But of course, the costume is a must. You can also hold a contest with it. You can declare who is the best. You can also have it by category. Examples are funniest, scariest, most creative, etc. This could be a surprise or said ahead of time to make it more exciting and competitive.
