Setting the Scene

As the weekend of October 31st approaches, the party spirit is at its peak. Embrace the festive vibe by throwing your own bash. You can opt for a costume party or go all out with Halloween decorations. Transform your place into a spooky haven by hitting up a Halloween store for fake cobwebs, tombstones, bats, and ghosts. These essentials can magically turn a simple college apartment into an eerie haunted space.

Take it a step further by illuminating your place with black lights and adorning walls with black sheets splattered with fluorescent red paint. This eerie setting, complemented by muted screenings of horror classics like “The Ring,” “The Exorcist,” or “Psycho,” will create the perfect chilling ambiance.

Booze-infused Fun

No party is complete without drinks, and Halloween is no exception. Add a spooky twist to traditional party beverages! Try Red Jello Shots for a bloody effect using red Jello packets. Check out our drink section for more Jello Shot recipes. Consider whipping up Orange Jungle Juice or Bloody Marys to tantalize your guests’ taste buds.

Dress to Impress

Costumes are a must, and the possibilities are endless! Unleash your creativity and embrace fun and excitement. Whether it’s a hilarious concept or inspired by the latest movie, uniqueness is key. To get you started, here are some costume ideas:

  • Doctor and Nurse
  • Naughty Nuns and Preachers
  • Hugh Hefner and Playboy Bunnies
  • Mexican Senor and Sexy Senorita
  • German Lederhosen and Dirndl

As a host, spice things up by organizing a costume contest and reward the best-dressed guest with a bottle of booze.
