The Party Place_Checklist For Planning A Halloween Party


Halloween is next week! If you’re planning a spooktacular event for this year’s Halloween, it’s time to make sure you’re on top of your party planning! The Party Place has just what you need to plan the best Halloween party of the year — it’s sure to be a graveyard smash!


1. Save the Date

Pick the perfect date for your Halloween party. Check with friends and family before you finalize the details!

2. Set the Atmosphere for Your Guests

Make a list of guests for your Halloween party and makes sure the atmosphere suits the gathering! Plan a sophisticated Halloween party for adults or organize a Family Fun Night for the kids. Make the party complete with Halloween costume contests and lots of candy.

3. Get More RSVPs with Your Invites

Invitations are a great way to give your guests an idea of what to expect at your Halloween party — choose a design to match your theme and divulge all the gory details for a party they wouldn’t dare miss — or else! Make sure all your guests have received their invites far enough in advance to put together a winning costume for the big contest. It doesn’t hurt to check in and double-check on those who haven’t responded yet.

4. Food and Drink

Good food and drinks are a must for any successful party, and Halloween is a great time to get creative with your food and beverage choices! Candy is a given, of course. And just think of all the fun you can have naming every delightful dish and bloody beverage — more Vampire Blood fruit punch, please! And monstrous green slime Jell-O! Create a “Worms in Mud” dessert for the kids with chocolate pudding, crushed Oreo cookie pieces, and gummy worms. If you’re serving hot food, be sure to have enough service ware to keep your food warm.

5. Decorations

Halloween decor is where you can really go overboard to set atmosphere and mood — whether your desired level of horror is kiddie style or the stuff nightmares are made of. Want to keep it simple? Fake spider webs and banners can be arranged artfully throughout the venue for a classic, all-ages Halloween event. Adjusting the lighting can also adjust the mood appropriately.
