Boo! 6 Halloween Party Themes Everyone Will Enjoy
You can’t throw the perfect party without having the perfect theme. From superhero to zombie themes, there’s plenty to choose from. Check these six themes out!
Stephen King’s IT
Coulrophobia: The irrational fear of clowns.
Does that sound like anyone you know? If so, it might be polite to forewarn them before they show up to this party. Or it could be good exposure. It’s all about perspective!
Stephen King’s IT novel and the 1990 and 2017 movies are loaded with so much dark-minded creativity that it would be hard to not come up with a bunch of Halloween party ideas from it. For starters, you’ll need a bunch of red balloons and for someone to dress up as Pennywise
“Tasty, tasty, beautiful fear.”—Pennywise
Draco Malfoy: Scared, Potter?
Harry Potter: You wish.
Recreating the Wizarding World created by JK Rowling is a magical experience! You can go as dark as you want with the theme—death eaters, the Forbidden Forrest, the Chamber of Secrets, etc. You could appeal to those with a more sporty nature by doing your own rendition of The Triwizard Tournament. With seven books and eight movies (not including the Fantastic Beast films), there is so much material to gather inspiration from. Just remember, no Harry Potter-themed party is complete without Butter Beer.
Cosplay & Costumes
You know the drill here. Go for a movie feel—like superheroes and villains. You could even be bold and choose a time period such as the Medieval times. Encourage enthusiasm and cosplay extravagance. It might also be a good idea to have some face masks that go with your party’s theme on hand for those who are unable to get costumes.
A good murder mystery dinner adds a layer of suspense not found in other parties. You get to be the creator and author of your own murder party. Invite friends and family to come together dressed in costumes and ready to role play. Just beware—one is not as loyal as he or she may seem.
What does a skeleton order at a restaurant? Spareribs! Skeletons don’t have to be scary and you can have a lot of fun with this them. Dress them up as your favorite celebrities and plant them around your home and yard. Have a friend or family member that moved away and everyone misses? Dress a skeleton up like them and give them their own seat at the party table.
Nothing says “Halloween” more than the un-dead. Will you go for the classic zombie theme, or the contemporary “Walking Dead” style? You decide! Who will be the life of your party?
It’s safe to say that we love Halloween! We hope that yours is memorable—don’t lose your brain to a zombie and don’t go chasing red balloons!
