Halloween is a well-loved holiday that is celebrated by children and adults all over the country. However, if you’re feeling spoiled for choice and need some advice about organising a party, here’s a quick list of themes, tips, and ideas for party bags to give you a helping hand.
Organise A Spooky Party This Halloween
- A Fang-Tastic Vampire Party
If you want to organise a Halloween party with a vampire theme. The first step is to decide what type of vampire you’re going to base the celebrations on. However, it’s important to make sure that you keep the party at an appropriate level of horror and scariness for the youngest guests in attendance. Thankfully, vampires are a very varied monster and they come in various different styles, ranging from child friendly vampires, all the way up through the teen years and into fiction designed for adults.
If you’re organising a party with young children, it might be a good idea to look to vampire stories such as Mona the Vampire or The Little Vampire for inspiration. However, if your youngest guests are older teenagers, you could increase the level of scariness and look to television series such as The Vampire Diaries or Buffy The Vampire Slayer for inspiration.
- How About A Witch Theme?
Witches are fantastic for Halloween parties. Ranging from classics such as the Wicked Witch of the East from the classic and well loved film Wizard of Oz, or more contemporary interpretations of witches such as the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry created by J K Rowling.
Witches come in various different shapes and sizes and they’re a great theme for Halloween parties because of the variety of different fancy dress options. After all, what children’s Halloween party is complete without some fancy dress?
- Look To Other Cultures
If you’d like to create an educational experience for your children this year at a Halloween party, why not take the opportunity to educate them about a festival celebrated on the 1st and 2nd of November in countries such as Mexico and the United States of America? Día De Los Muertos (also known as the day of the dead).
One of the prominent themes and characters associated with this Mesoamerican celebration is the skeleton. However, unlike European and Asian interpretations of skeletons, the Mesoamerican interpretation isn’t a scary monster; instead the skeleton is a cheerful character. Opting for a colourful skeleton themed party could be a fantastic opportunity to teach your children and their friends about a different culture, whilst having a fun party at the same time.
- Something Not Too Spooky? How About Superheroes?
If you’re concerned about the Halloween party being too spooky and scary for children who are attending your party, a superhero theme is a fantastic idea. You could play lots of fun superhero themed games and give out superhero party bag fillers as prizes for the party guests who win games.
