Aside from the typical scary and fright night, isn’t it great to experience a fun Halloween too? This season, let’s all pinky swear to make it a fun and memorable one, okay?
Every year, I’ve been to different Halloween parties with outrageous themes, eerie ideas and horrifying makeup and costumes. And the best part of each party? It’s always fun-filled. No dull moments, guys and gals! Being with friends and relatives to party all night long has always been a blast and it never fails to bring the best of both worlds.
If this year is your lucky year to host a Halloween party, more than the food and drinks, you must assure your guests that they will experience the best and most amusing Halloween party ever. How will that happen? We got you covered, dear!
8 Perfect Ways to Guarantee a Fun Halloween
Achieving a fun Halloween is almost the same as other parties celebrated throughout the year. The only exception is that it wouldn’t be complete without a little sprinkle of spooky ideas. Like I said, it doesn’t need to be a night full of screams and goosebumps. And definitely, it does not need to be filled with DRAMA. The dreaded D word.
Are you a fan of Halloween? Yes? Not so much? Either way, Halloween only happens once a year so we might as well have fun with it. There are tons of non-creepy ways to enjoy the day. Here are some of the best ideas to try out for your next Halloween party:
1. Trick or Treat
Trick or treat is what Halloween is for! Kids and adults alike love it, except that only the kids get tons of candy. But hey, that shouldn’t stop you from going around the neighborhood in your best Halloween costume and having some fun too! Just go ahead, enjoy, we are all young at heart anyway.
2. Shop for Treats
Giving is caring and having treats ready for the trick-or-treaters show your appreciation for all their efforts to dress up and break a sweat walking around like a princess or a zombie. Shop for treats like candies, chocolates and other goodies that the kids will love. That is part of the Halloween spirit, so get into it!
3. Make Treats for Awesome Costumes
Another fun way to enjoy Halloween is to make special Halloween treats. Why not bake some pumpkin or skeleton-faced cookies? You can hand out the special treats to the kids with costumes that you really like. It can be your small little reward of some sort and I’m sure the kids will love it too.
4. Family Dinner
Aside from meeting with friendly neighbors and strangers at your doorstep, take this time to gather the family for a special Halloween dinner. Prepare dinner and enjoy the night in the company of your loved ones. A family get-together is always food for the soul! If you like the idea, why not make it a yearly thing too?
5. Dress Up with Family (even the dog)
Probably the most fun thing during Halloween is dressing up! There are so many wonderful ideas for costumes and must I say, this is the only time in the year where you can be anyone you want to be. You name it! Want to dress up like Captain Jack Sparrow? A walker? Or maybe, Snow White? Just do it and enjoy every moment!
6. Decorate the House
You don’t want to be that boring house on the block that trick or treaters avoid, do you? I’m not saying that you go all out with the Halloween decor, but at least do some work to make the house look Halloween-appropriate. And trust me when I say, you’re going to have heaps of fun turning your house into a haunted one!
7. Watch Scary Movies or TV Shows
Waiting for an excuse to watch those scary movies and TV shows that you’ve managed to avoid through the year? Halloween is the perfect excuse to be scared! Doesn’t matter if you’ll end up biting your nails, hiding under the sheets, closing your eyes for more than 50% of the movie or even crying because of fear. What matters is that you enjoy this rare occasion with friends and family who will probably be as scared as you. If it makes you feel any better, at least you won’t be alone right?
8. Organize a Party
Well, this last one can take some work, but parties are always fun! For Halloween, you can organize a Halloween costume party for family and friends. If you’re saving on cash, you can ask everyone to chip in. You can do a potluck for food and snacks. What’s important here is that you guys have a blast this Halloween and make sure it’s 100% fun for everyone.
