Planning a Halloween party? Whether it’s your first or you’re the go to house every year, try these five tips to throw an extra fun party.
Pumpkin Patch Hunt Game
For a fun game that will last all night, try this Pumpkin Patch Hunt. Like an Easter Egg Hunt, your guests will scour your home to find hidden pumpkins. You can use real pumpkins of any size, paper pumpkin decorations or tiny plastic pumpkins from the craft store. The guest who finds the most pumpkins wins and can pick their favorite pumpkin to take home!
Serve Your Cocktails In A Unique Way
Give your guests a spooky treat by serving your cocktails with a syringe shooter. You can buy food safe syringes online and load them with your pre-made drink mixes. Then, store on ice until the party starts and serve, ready to shoot. This Bloody Mary recipe works perfectly with syringe shooters, but any red cocktail will look great.
Play Name That Monster
Get the conversation started with this ice-breaker game. When guests arrive, put a picture of a classic Halloween monster on their back: vampire, mummy, Frankenstein, etc. Make sure they don’t see what monster they have. Everyone has to ask other guests “yes” or “no” questions to figure out who they are. A prize goes to the first person to figure out their monster.
Add A Ghostly Twist To Your Punch Bowl
This is a fun and easy way to up your decoration game. Just fill a vinyl glove with water and tie it tight like a balloon. Then, put your glove in the freezer until it’s frozen solid. Cut the glove off and add the frozen hand to your party punch. The ice will keep your drink cold but the hand will slowly fade away, giving your beverage station a ghoulish vibe.
Make Scary Yummy Desserts With Walkers Shortbread
In addition to these fun games and activities, provide your guests with some devilishly delicious desserts. This no-bake icebox cake made with Walkers Shortbread Triangles looks like a piece of Candy Corn and is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Or, if you want to provide a more whimsical vibe, serve dirt cake decorated with mummies and monsters. Made with Chocolate Scottie Dogs and Shortbread Fingers, these individual-sized treats will make even the grumpiest ghoul smile.
