The countdown to Halloween is officially underway. While we know that some of you have been ready for the holiday for weeks, others may still need a few eerie ideas for celebrating this year. If you are looking for some last minute party ideas, maybe you will find some inspiration in today’s Halloween parties we love. If weather permits, you may consider hosting some outdoor Halloween Party Fun like this cute get-together from The Sweetest Occasion. The scene indoors for this party was set with lots of candles, cardboard bats, spooky plastic spiders and skulls – simple and traditional Halloween décor that you can easily D-I-Y.  Tiny guests were invited to arrive in their favorite costumes, perfect for a little outdoor pretend play. Interactive games in the yard and a puppet show served as party activities for the day.  Guests also got to enjoy delicious caramel apples and other scrumptious snacks. This party is very cute, and easy to put together if you are short on time.

Halloween isn’t just for the kiddies anymore. So, those of you that are looking to host an adult affair, you may be able to borrow some ideas from this creative “Dying to Party” Halloween Bash from A to Zebra Celebrations.  Black and gray graveyard themed printables help bring the “Dying to Party” theme to life. All of the snacks, including tombstone and skeleton cookies, go great with this theme.  And if you think the snacks are great, you will love the clever sayings that go along with them!  Catchy phrases like “Sinful Sweets” and “Graveyard Treats” accompanied all of the food items at this party. Adult beverages were served at the “intoxicating booze bar” where guests could “pick their poison.” If you are thinking about trying to re-create this party, you may want to add a bit more fun and hire a psychic to allow guests to communicate with those on “the other side.”

If you aren’t into dressing up and going out, then hosting a Halloween Horror Movie Night may be more your speed. This party, featured on Pizzazzerie is a great alternative party option for those looking for a more low-key Halloween celebration. Once you have selected your favorite horror flicks, it’s time to whip up some scary snacks and plenty of popcorn. The Monster Mash printables from Spaceships and Laserbeams  that are featured in this party would make decorating a breeze.  And for real dramatic effect you could even hire a costumed character to dress up like your favorite horror movie character to scare your guests at just the right moment!
