- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
for more suggestions. Or check out
Halloween Music for ideas.
- 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
