These Are the Top 10 Halloween Party Ideas For Families and Children of All Ages

Planning a Halloween party for your family and friends is a fun thing to do. Whether you will be hosting adults, children, or a mix of both, a Halloween party is the fun and exciting party for everyone to attend.

Halloween Parties take a bit of planning and I have seen fit to cover all bases and make it the event of the year, with some great ideas to get you started:

First Step - Deciding on a budget for your party and working out who you are going to cater for is the first step, weather it is going to a Children Party, Adult or both.

Second Step - Using your imagination and creating some spooky foods is on the agenda, children are easy to cater for and for the adults some creepy canapes are just what the party needs.

Third Step - Beverages are also easy, as a slimy punch made out of lemonade, sugar, meringue powder, and seltzer water. To this add some green food coloring and stir. The mix will be slimy and frothy and some Creepy Cocktails for the adults won't go astray either.

Forth Step - Dry ice to beverages is also a fun way to spook things up a bit. This will give them a foggy effect which is just as appealing to Adults as it is to Children.

Fifth Step - Decorating for Halloween is also fun. Form Styrofoam cut outs you can make tombstones in the yard and even hang lanterns, skeletons and ghosts in your trees. Spider Webs can be put through the inside of your home, with spiders, creepy decorations a coffin here and there.

Sixth Step - Lighting is also an important consideration for the night, dimly lit but bright enough so your guests can see without tripping over each other, with a fog machine or cauldrons with dry ice creating that misty effect along the floor.

Seventh Step - All important Music is a must for a fun Halloween party. There is heaps of suitable music for Halloween, Thriller, Monster Mash, Welcome to my Nightmare, go wild and get some great party tracks.

Eighth Step - Game s for Halloween are always a hit for any party for that matter. A fun game for adults is charades using scary movies and themes. For children, bobbing for apples can be fun if the weather and space allow for it. Also, contests for the best Halloween Costumes always go over well. (Mention the Games and the Prizes on your invitations).

Ninth Step - Writing secret messages on your drinking glasses is a clever way to blow your guests away. How you do this, is by taking a mixture of dish soap and water and write messages with it, using your finger, on the outside of some drinking glasses. Once you are finished place them in the freezer to frost over. As your guests drink, and the glasses warm, your messages will magically appear. Your guests will be amazed at and talk about this ghostly phenomenon for a long time after wards.

Step 10 - Jumping online is one of the best ways to research Halloween Party Idea's. There's plenty to choose from, costume ideas, novelties and complete Halloween theme packs are available and very affordable, so make your Halloween one that everyone there will remember this year.
