As children, didn’t we all love Halloween? It was the perfect time for gathering with friends and family, and it always kicked off the festive season! But as the years passed, the parties became predictable and dull. The same old costumes, glaring lights, spooky music, and some boring Halloween-themed games were it—there was hardly anything different anywhere.
If you want things to be different this year, and if you’re planning to throw a Halloween party that people will remember for a very long time, read on!
- Understand Your Audience:
Planning a Halloween party for adults is easy—all you have to do is arrange for plenty of drinks, some good music, and great food and you’ve got things under control. If you’d like to add a fun element, you could arrange for a photo booth rental—these always add an extra dose of fun.
Planning a party exclusively for kids is a different ballgame altogether. You have to come up with a theme that children can relate to while ensuring that it’s not too scary. Game ideas also change accordingly; passing the parcel and scavenger hunts are some fun ideas.
But the most challenging parties are for families. You have to look for activities that people can enjoy along with their kids; for example, the toilet paper mummy game or face painting.
- Planning the Games:
You could hire a magician for some professional-quality tricks or you could learn online how to perform them yourself. Fake spiders, fake hands, and fake slimy worms are also some things you can buy. If you are planning games for the family, how about arranging a face-your-fear eating challenge? Blindfold guests and feed them an array of slimy and squiggly foods with unusual textures—ask them to guess the foods. Children can be asked to guess the number of lollipops and other treats in a jar!
- Hire a Photo Booth
A photo booth rental is a great way to ensure everyone is entertained throughout the whole party. In fact, our photo booth in Los Angeles has been a long-time favorite for party lovers. We can arrange for props and customized backdrops with Halloween themes; they’re sure to make for a fun event. Your guests will get access to unlimited prints, and they’ll even be able to share photos on social media instantly. For corporate parties, create unique hashtags that can be shared for maximum effect.
