HALLOWEEN PARTY THEME - HAUNTED HOUSE

Halloween Party Theme - Haunted HouseTurn your house into a haunted house for the night! Start by lining the walk way to the front door with Jack-O-Lanterns. Hang gauze ghosts in the trees. Have spooky music playing for your guests to hear as they walk up. Use white sheets over the inside of your windows and adorn them with silhouettes of  ghosts, hanged men and black cats. Inside, dark lighting, candelabras, black roses, cob webs. Throw old white or slightly yellowed sheets over furniture. The house should look old and haunted inside and out. Costumes should be ghosts of all kinds, there are quite a few Gothy ghost costumes available. If they want, just use a white sheet but dress it up by distressing it, cutting or shredding the bottom and dying it to look old and yellowed.

Costumes -  Halloween Online's costume section has a section on ghost costumes that have that Gothic feel to them. Be sure and include in the invitations that everyone comes dressed in their favorite ghost costume. The range of ghost costumes has grown over the years from a sheet to full costumes that have an apparition feel to them.

Decorations - You want your house to look haunted inside and out. Inside, keep the lighting low, use electric candles all over. Stick ravens, owls, bats everywhere. Lots of cobwebs placed all over. Outside, lining the walk way to the front door with glowing Jack-O-Lanterns. Hang gauze ghosts in the trees. Have spooky music playing for your guests to hear as they walk up. 

Refreshments - Serve some ghastly treats! Ghosts don't eat much so feel free to feed them the food of the living. Halloween treats like a coffin shaped cake, marshmallow ghosts, Jack-O-Lantern pizza will keep them happy. Check out Halloween Recipes for more ideas.

Music - Dark, soundscapes will work well as will sounds of haunted houses. Chains rattling, ghosts moaning, screams in the distance. There are many sound effects and soundscape CDs to be found such as Midnight Syndicates many choices. See our Entertainment section for more suggestions. Or check out Halloween Music for ideas.

Entertainment - Telling round table ghost stories work well for this ghostly party. You can also take some children's games like "The Tell Tale Tale", "Weaving A Scary Tale" or just telling urban legends based on ghosts. For lots of Halloween party game suggestions visit the Halloween Games 101 website.
