The Pumpkin Patch Party

This is a nice, unscary pleasant party theme for everyone. Why not paint or carve pumpkins as part of the evenings activities, or have everyone bring their own decorated pumpkins. Put on some Music...Halloween music is best, and have a great time. This is a pretty easy party theme.

A Monster Mash Party Theme

Have everyone come dressed up as a monster! You will see some friendly monsters, like Herman Munster and some scary monster costumes like the clown from Saw. Get some Halloween music going and have a monster mash dance contest, or just a plain old costume contest...with prizes for the cutest monster, the scariest monster and the biggest monster costume. It's always fun to give out some creepy candied eyeballs, or some other funny, but gross party prize.

A Scary Movie Fest

This kind of party doesn't require an entire costume...just some fun, scary props. Get some bones and leave them laying around, make a jello brain mold, and put some frozen hands in the punch bowl. A little red food dye in your popcorn's butter and your set to watch some of the scariest movies you can think of with your friends! I love scary movies! I'm not the one who jumps and screams the entire movie...I only jump and scream once or twice. I am also the one you hear yelling, "no, don't open it...No...NO!" I hate it when the movie actors don't listen to your very sound advice!
