Summary of this article: Are you looking for a way to plan a Halloween party? You might be wondering whether you need a theme for your Halloween party. It is not necessary for you to have one, but it can definitely make your party a little more interesting if you choose to have one. Halloween costume parties are the best types of themed celebrations to host, because they encourage guests to go into the holiday spirit with costumes, props, and more.
Here I want to introduce 5 hot and vogue Halloween themes for your reference. I believe they will give you some inspiration to plan and hold a special and memorable party.
Monster Mashed Halloween Bash
What's the first word appears in your mind when you hear "Halloween"? Frankenstein? Dracula? Mummies, ghosts, goblins? It is a wonderful opportunity for you to throw a Monster Mash in happy Halloween day. Find a recording of the famous song originally, sung by Bobby Pickett, and use some of the wording in your invitations. Dress up the house in monster inspiration decorations and play the whole Pickett album at your party. Turn your favorite Halloween theme party into a monster-field version, which means adding fangs, fur, blood, and any other frightful touches you can think of to make a scary version of a traditional costume.
Decorations and costumes, such as werewolves, vampires, match well with this Halloween party theme. To make sure you have spare costume accessories like fake blood, wigs, and capes available in case that someone forgets a finishing touch. In addition, make Halloween theme party food just as spooky by labeling dishes with Halloween inspired names, such as eyeballs, guts, and witches brew.
Alice in Wonderland
We can see many different kooky characters in Lewis Carroll's famed "Alice in Wonderland", which gives us a great opportunity to hold a costume party. You can invite guests to a special Halloween-night Tea Party and recommend a different costume for each guest, including the Mad Hatter, Alice, the Cheshire Cat, the White Rabbit, and the Queen of Hearts. Set out teas and finger foods themed to the different adventures Alice finds herself in, such as key-shaped cookies, raspberry-filled heart-shaped tarts, and the cat's smile cake. What’s more, it wouldn't be an Alice in Wonderland party if you didn't start off a game of croquet or cards!
Rocky Horror Picture Show
Audiences often enjoy acting out and singing along with the on-screen characters in this classic film. Why not to reappear the same scene in your own happy Halloween day? There are so many characters your guests can imitate, each can dress up as a different person from the movie and act as spookish as they can. You can choose to watch the movie in your living room or get a projector and watch it in your backyard. Act along with the movie and teach the Time Warp dance before you begin. Decorate your party with old posters from the movie and make your desserts themed to the show like cookies in the shape of lips or cupcakes with images of those legs.
Hocus Pocus "You're Famous" Halloween Party
Have guests dress up like celebrities, alive or dead. Make the decorations of your party space look like old Hollywood charm with Hollywood stars, director’s chairs, and cut reels. Serve champagne in vintage champagne flutes and have a buffet with lots of fancy finger foods.
Whatever Halloween party theme you choose, make sure to inform of your guests so they can find appropriate costumes. The perfect way to let guests know about your Halloween costume party theme is on your Halloween invitations.
