Halloween Party Checklist!

Author CostumeBox / Posts / Published: 29/10/2014

One Month Before:

  • Choose a party theme: See our Halloween Page for theme ideas. Hot favorites for this year are Creepy Carnival theme, Asylum and Horror Fairy-tale.


  • Prepare a guest list: Whether it’s an intimate Halloween movie night with a few friends or a full-blown Halloween party with circus entertainment there are different ways to celebrate!


  • Book a venue: If you are choosing to opt for an extravagant party make sure you book a venue at least a month before to secure your spot! Community Halls and clubs are a good option for parties with 30+ guests.


  • Prepare Invitations: Give your invitees a fright with custom made creepy Halloween invitations.


  • Prepare party activities: Write up a rough outline for party activities for the night. This can range from having acrobatic performers to doing simple games like pass the pumpkin.
