If you’re looking to be festive this Halloween, are new to your area or are looking for ways to gather your friends & family for a spook-tacular time, read on!
1. Host a frighteningly good costume party. Halloween is one of the few socially acceptable days for grown ups to play dress up – get into the silliness of the season. Offer prizes to the scariest, funniest, or most inventive costume. Have extra funny hats, colourful scarves, and boas for those who didn’t dress up, but want to be included in the fun.
2. Brew a Halloween punch that will put your guests in ghoulish spirits. The internet is full of fizzy drink ideas which simulate green slime, fresh blood or even witch’s brew! Get Googling and explore tasting some spine-chilling concoctions.
3. Create a playlist of “spooky tunes” using your favourite streaming service. Start with the classics like ‘Thriller’, ‘Ghostbusters’,’ ‘Monster Mash’, and ‘Season of The Witch.’ Then, branch out into creepier tunes like ‘Disturbia’, ‘She Wolf’, and ‘Everyday is Halloween.’
4. Entertain your guests with some Minute to Win it Games, bobbing for eyeballs, or the Mummy Wrap! If that’s too terrifying for your guests, settle in to watch a scary movie. Adults may want to play a drinking game – a big gulp of Halloween punch every time “something horrible happens”, somebody screams or someone trips in the woods.
*Make sure you & your guests drink responsibly. Call an Uber & be prepared for overnight guests
