Get your friends and family together for an awesome Halloween party with these theme ideas. 

It’s that time of year again: Halloween is right around the corner. If you’re looking to throw a party this year, these Halloween party themes are guaranteed to spook your guests. Oh, and they’re fun, too.

To start, personalize the invitations you send out with a Silver Scream theme that shows off your favorite scary movies. Have your guests dress as their favorite creepy characters and serve up some spooky treats to make this the best costume party ever. You can even have terrifying movies playing on the television, so your guests will hear screams all night.

Your party can also feature a create-your-own Bloody Mary bar or you can serve up some spicy Bloody Marys. Deck your house in mirrors and dare your guests to say Bloody Mary’s name three times. For maximum spookiness, make sure to paint the ghost of Bloody Mary onto at least one of your mirrors.

The spirit behind one of our favorite holidays always stirs up new, terrifying Halloween theme ideas. Doing a frightening fairy tale theme gives your guests room to dress up in their favorite costumes and gives you a wide-range of recipes to make. Fairy tales are typically sweet, but with added frightening twists, you can make them horrifying. Create a walk through a frightening forest where scary characters jump out at your guests. Dress up as the wolf from Little Red Riding Hood or as Captain Hook with a bloody hook from Peter Pan. Whether you’re serving poisoned apples as Snow White or gingerbread cookies as Hansel and Gretel, you can’t go wrong with a fairy tale Halloween themed party.
