Throwing a party requires certain skills. You have to see everything from a guest’s perspective first before starting with the plans. A banquet for the family is easy; with enough food and careful sorting of heated relatives and it will be a success. A mostly social party, however, is a bit tricky. In addition, if you plan to be a staple every year, all the more reason you need to be careful.
There is no other yearly festivity harder to throw than a Halloween party. It has to be sufficiently scary and cheesy for people to like it. Too much fright and everyone will be on edge, while being too cheesy will just invite criticism.
You don’t have to go for exotic delicacies, as it might put off your guests and it’s difficult to procure. It’s best to consult Halloween recipes that get really creative when it comes to creating creepy-looking fare. Serve fingers, spiders and ghosts without needing the real thing.
Exclude those moving decorations that will jolt your guests. Go for simple but creepy decorations. A well placed wide-eyed creature will make their hairs stand on end. Put up banners that will retain the joy of the party.
Costumes Are Mandatory
It is no fun when one person made the choice of wearing sweatpants and a rummy shirt. Make costumes a requirement to gain entry in your party. Moreover, tell your guests to be creative. Whether it’s a Halloween party in Singapore, London or Los Angeles, costumes are critical.
There is enough scary stuff in your decorations and food that you do not have to play the soundtrack of The Exorcist. Put on happy tunes early on; when it is getting late, play the thumping music that will recharge your guests.
Children’s party games will not suffice; pick an amusement that will involve everyone and will be done in one go. Some of them are scavenger hunt, costume contest or dance off. It is certainly a way to make your party more memorable.
The main thing when planning a Halloween party is to be inventive. There are enough parties that have the same theme that breaking from pattern is a welcome sight. Be spooky and fun!
