It's that time of year again!
The time when ghosts and ghouls come out to play, and the monsters come out to mash.
If you're looking to throw the best Monster Mash party this Halloween, then you've come to the right place. There's no need to be scared, throwing the best monster mash party this Halloween is easy peasy!
Just follow these Dos and Don'ts and you're sure to have a spooktacular time.
Do: Set the Mood with Spooky Decorations
Nothing gets a party started like some good old-fashioned spooky decorations. Go all out with cobwebs, bats, and orange and black streamers. And don't forget the most important decoration of all: a big ol' pumpkin to greet your guests at the door!
And remember to dress to impress.
Showing up to a Halloween party in sweatpants is just lazy. Get a costume, you'll look great and feel even better.
Trust me on this one.
Don't: Forget the Candy or the Booze!
No Halloween party is complete without candy.
Lots and lots of candy.
So, make sure you have enough to satisfy all those sweet tooths. Though, yes, you're an adult now and candy isn't really "cool." But what's cooler than being prepared with plenty of candy when those kiddos come knocking on your door begging for sweets?
Not much, if you ask me.
And we all know adults love candy just as much as kids if not more. No judgment here.
Don't be that host or hostess running out of booze halfway through the party.
Doing a quick headcount before heading to the liquor store will save you a lot of hassle (and potential embarrassment) later on. Nobody likes a party pooper.
And don't be the guest that gets so drunk you pass out before midnight. Oh, Lord, you didn't!
I get it, Halloween parties are a great excuse to let loose and have some fun. But there's nothing worse than waking up disoriented and not remembering how you got home the night before. That's just embarrassing.
Do: Play Some Fun Halloween Games
What's a party without some games?
Organize a relay race where teams have to bob for apples or see who can guess the most popular Halloween candy.
Or set up a Haunted House in your backyard for the brave souls who are looking for a little extra thrill. Just make sure you have plenty of prizes on hand for the winners!
Don't: Forget about the Music!
No party is complete without a killer playlist.
So put on your dancing shoes and get ready to boogie down with all your favorite Halloween hits.
"Monster Mash," "Thriller," "Purple People Eater," "Werewolves of London" - the list goes on and on.
Make sure you have enough tunes to keep everyone dancing all night!
So, there you have it, folks! Just follow these simple dos and don'ts, and your Monster Mash party is sure to be a smash hit this Halloween season!
