Halloween is coming up, and if you don’t have any party ideas, well, you still have a bit of time. In fact, sometimes last minute Halloween party ideas are the best! Here are a few different things you could do this Halloween.
If you have kids or will be hosting a Halloween party for kids, you can always create a mini-haunted house in your home. It doesn’t have to be incredibly scary. In fact, you probably don’t want to make it that scary. One thing you can do is blindfold kids and put their hands in different items—spaghetti becomes worms, boiled eggs can be eyeballs, etc.
Have a treasure hunt or a scavenger hunt. Both can be fun. Creating a treasure hunt gives your friends or kids the chance to work together, while a scavenger hunt pits teams against each other.
For adult parties, create a creepy Halloween bar. Your mad scientist might brew up some pumpkin martinis, witch’s brew, and other scary drinks. A little food coloring, some neat glasses, and some fun decorations can really add to the overall effect.
Another idea is to have a theme party. Instead of having everyone come in whatever costume they want, send out invitations listing your theme. Maybe you want everyone to come as a historical figure, their favorite television character, or a traditional Halloween monster.
Host a murder mystery party. You can buy murder mystery kits from a number of different stores. Generally, these murder mysteries are done over dinner, but they don’t have to be. Most require between six and eight players, although there are some that accommodate a dozen.
If you need great flowers to use in your Halloween party decorations, there’s still time. MyFlorist has a number of great boo-quets available!
