That spook-tacular time of year is almost here once again – and that means one very important thing: It’s time for you to start planning your Halloween party! Whether you’re planning an incredible bash of your own, or you’re looking for an exciting way to help out with your friends’ get-together, the last thing you want is to be restricted to the same old ideas and plastic skeletons.
Following, we’ve put together a list of some of our favorite unique Halloween ideas – to give you the inspiration you need for a truly dazzling evening.
1. Murder-Mystery Party
There’s nothing quite like a murder-mystery soiree to get the excitement brewing on Halloween. You can even ask a friend to take a moment out of his or her busy schedule to act as a temporary “body”, for the initial shock factor to wow your guests.
You can add to the atmosphere with candy blood slides to mystery-based party games, and even hand out prizes to those who manage to solve the riddle by the end of the evening. There’s plenty of murder mystery scripts online today if you’re feeling uninspired – but keep in mind that a few of them are up to seventy-pages long.
2. Halloween Cocktail Contest
What’s more important on Halloween than finding time for some deliciously sinful drinks and treats? Rather than handing a bunch of pre-made beverages to your guests, the “contest” aspect of this theme will get them to show off their own creativity, and ensure that everyone’s engaged during your bash – rather than simply sitting on the sofa and waiting for time to pass.
All you need to make this idea a success is a few exciting recipes, plenty of booze, and Halloween extras to add a touch of “horror” to your delicious drinks.
3. YouTube Clip Carousel
Finally, why not make the most out of everyone’s love of YouTube and create a playlist of incredible Halloween-themed videos to keep your party guests entertained if they want to take a break from booze and dancing. If you’re holding the bash at home, you can always have your YouTube clips running in a different room to provide a great “chill-out” space for tired party-goers.
If you can’t think of a lot of videos to include yourself, make sure to create a Facebook group for your Halloween event and get people to input their own suggestions – just make sure videos are all three-minutes long or less – or you could end up with some clips that last forever.
