Haunted Halloween House

A haunted house is a great theme that lets you get creative. It’s a big favourite for all ages, too!

Use creepy decorations to turn your house into a spooky manor with surprises around every corner. Start with gravestones in the garden to set the tone. Inside, decide how many rooms the guests will visit and decorate them. You might use a variety of props, or theme each room separately. For example, make the dining room a gruesome kitchen with snacks like eyeball cake-pops and slime punch

…While hosting games in a deadly dungeon-themed living room, with skeletons and chains. Add some music and sound effects for an unforgettable party night!

Gothic Elegance

Want a refined adults-only party? This theme is perfect for an Autumn evening occasion. Decorate with dark silky tablecloths, mysterious wilted roses, and intricate vintage lace. Skulls and cobweb-covered Gothic candlesticks add to the creepy atmosphere! Focus on elegance and macabre Victorian style to pull this theme together.

Have a devilish dinner party with dark twists at every turn. These toffee apples make the ideal dessert, while a posh pumpkin dish could provide the perfect main course.

Decorate your venue with quarantine signssome fake blood splatters (for older party-goers), and zombie cutouts. Why not close off rooms in the house with some warning tape for a fun touch? We love these simple DIY zombie barricades – they’re cheap and easy to make, but look so effective! And guests will love how unique they look.

There’s also no shortage of ghoulish food ideas. If you want something to gross out your guests, try a melon brain. But, if you want something a bit tamer, these creepy undead cupcakes have just the right amount of spook-factor! Add a few biohazard signs to your buffet to really set the tone!

You can also get creative with party favours. Give guests ‘survival kits’ filled with sweets labelled ‘antidote’ and novelty IV bags.
