Decorate your home to look like a scene or scenes from the show and ask everyone to come dressed as their favorite character. Once you have this theme set, the rest is easy to build around.

Witches Convention

Witches Party
Have a spooky witches party!

If you are interested in throwing a Halloween party but want to have it a bit more sophisticated for the older crowd then a witches party is a great theme. Decorate your home in dark but elegant decorations and ask everyone to arrive dressed as a witch or warlock from their favorite era. Think 3-course dinner with themed plating’s and crafty notes at the table as opposed to snacks and candy littered around the house.  You can even have a wine service with special Halloween attributes if you want to take this theme to the next level.

Angels & Devils

Angels and Devils
Are you are the good side or the bad side of the Angels party?

For those looking to host an all adult Halloween party but are not interested in a sit-down dinner style theme, an Angels & Devils theme might be right up your alley. Intended for the 21+ crowd you can make it a masked affair with your guest arriving in their preference of angel or devil attire. Games, drinks, dares and fun abound for this night of good versus evil.

Horror Viewing Party

If you have space and the time, a Horror themed viewing party is a great way to spend Halloween night. Pick two or three popular spooky movies and transform your living room and family room into themed viewing areas that fit each movie. If you have a basement you can even convert that into a special viewing party with a Halloween moving made for kids. Popcorn, snacks and spooky fun galore can be expected with this idea!

Murder Mystery Party

Make Your Event A Casino Party This October And Skip The Fake Blood

Casino Party

A casino party is something that everyone will enjoy, and it can turn any occasion into an event that everyone will remember forever. Try something exciting this time and go with a casino theme that will bring life to any party. Costumes for all Occasions has plenty of decorations to help you set the mood.

Holding a casino party instead of a traditional spooky or horror-themed event could be the best thing you do this year. A casino theme is one that most adults can really get into, and everyone loves a good wager, so try it out for your next party and see how a potentially drab occasion can turn into a night you’ll remember forever.

What Kind of Party Can Use a Casino Theme?

Aside from religious events, any party can have a casino theme. Essentially, it is like bringing home a piece of Vegas so your friends and acquaintances can enjoy what they would otherwise have to travel in order to experience. Birthday parties are ideal for this because adults tend to shy away from birthday parties unless it’s an exciting theme that they can really enjoy. Halloween parties are also a great bet because not everyone is into blood, guts, and gore. Wagering is certainly in that category, and nobody but nobody can resist a good wager. Besides, you can choose the kind of games you want – hardcore casino or just pure fun activities like bingo, darts or other similar games.

More on Game Types

Genuine casino games include poker, baccarat, roulette, blackjack, craps and the ever-popular one-arm bandit. Other entertainment includes bingo games, Hi-Lo and many others that are games of pure luck. Depending on the type of event and the kind of people that are going to be there, you can choose any combination of games you like.

Authenticity

This is where you might be tempted to hire a professional event management company to host the party. If you hire professionals they will make sure that the equipment is authentic and the staff is well-trained to play the roles of dealers, croupiers, stewards and so on. Of course, not everyone is looking to spend that kind of money and that’s where decorating and props from Costumes for all Occasions can come in handy. You can have a couple of your close friends dress the part of the dealers or you can hire short term help just for the night. 

Making the Right Food and Beverage Choices

When the entertainment is casino themed, the food and drinks need to be, too. That’s why it is essential that you make sure that the refreshments are “in tune” with the theme of the evening. Serving hors d’ oeuvres that match the exclusivity of the theme will ensure that your party is nothing less than a major hit event that will be the talk of your circle of friends for months to come. If your party is better than other Halloween events they attended, they might even expect the same thing next year!

Are You Ready To Transform Your House Into A Haunted Mansion?

Haunted house decorations/

Halloween is just around the corner and that means it’s time to get spooky. It’s that time of year to pick out a costume, stuff your face with candy, and deck the halls with cobwebs and skeletons. Whether you are decorating for trick-or-treaters or an awesome monster mash, there are lots of fun ways you can get your house prepared for Halloween. You just have to figure out what you are looking for!

The first thing you are going to want to do is to decide exactly what spooky elements you want to incorporate into your home. You need to really take into consideration what kind of atmosphere you are trying to create. Are you looking to get little kids into the Halloween spirit, or trying to scare the lights out of your peers and coworkers?

Either way, there is bound to be something you’re looking for, and the first place to start is the outside!

The Great Outdoors

The outdoors are honestly the best place to start decorating. It is the first thing people will see when they show up to your event and it may be the only place where you can woo trick-or-treaters.

Whether you are looking to do some minor festivities or want to do a full-blown Halloween makeover, light up yard ornaments is a great way to make sure you get that attention you seek.

Black Light-up Cat

There are few animals that scream Halloween quite like a black cat. From bad luck to a witch’s trusty familiar, the black cat has become synonymous with everything mysterious and magic. This piece is detailed enough that it doesn’t look out of place at a mature event but friendly enough you won’t send kids away in tears. Not the scariest item, but a classic! The best part, it’s completely illuminated so you don’t have to worry about not being able to see it on dark, stormy nights.

Clown-Go-Round Animated Prop

Now, this next one is certainly not for the faint of heart. This piece quite literally puts a twist on the classic killer clown gimmick. Terrify your guests, both adults and children alike, as you present them with their worse nightmare. You can even keep it a secret that this decoration has an infrared sensor so that you can catch people off guard when these little monsters come to life right before their unsuspecting eyes. Electronics like this, though, are much better left out of the rain on a porch or under some kind of tent.

Inflatable Jack the Pumpkin King

Whether you are trying to cater to a Disney loving audience or you are just a huge fan of the cult-classic, this Nightmare Before Christmas lawn ornament is sure to get you singing along to Danny Elfman. Boys and girls of every age will fall in love with this. Perfect for all weather conditions (so long as it doesn’t blow away) and even lights up so you can experience Jack rain or shine. Remember, Nightmare Before Christmas is a double holiday movie, and it’s the perfect way to sneak some spook into your winter décor.

Clawing Cathy Animated Zombie

If you are looking for something a little less Halloween Town and a little more graphic, this animated zombie is sure to do the trick. If her looks weren’t enough to send you running the other way, clawing Cathy also has a sensor to make sure everyone that walks by notices her presence. She’s a delicate lady who needs to be on a covered porch to stay functioning, but there is nothing delicate about the way she will scare the life out of every guest that comes to your home. Bonus points for the Walking Dead fans out there!

Inflatable Black Smiling Spider

For those of us trying not to scare little kids or just like the cutesy aesthetic, this is the perfect addition to your yard. Super cute, super simple, and unmistakably Halloween. Perfect if you’re doing something for toddlers or a school event where you have to tone it down a bit. Remember, just because you have a family-friendly outside doesn’t mean that you have to have a censored interior to match.

Barking Dog Skeleton

Any dog owner will tell you the struggle of a barking dog the second someone comes close to your door. However, no one would suspect to look down and see this pile of bones. This may not be what you typically think of man’s best friend, but, its the season! Tame enough for children while still adding a tasteful element to your home. We can’t guarantee how your real dog will be handling this new companion though.

Animated Lighted Cats Eyes

While Fido is hiding from your new pet, someone’s got to keep an eye on your home! This cute wall decoration is perfect people trying to sneak some feline fun into your home. The animated eyes look around and light up so you can enjoy them even better in the dark part scene. Perfect for kid’s parties and less serious adult parties alike. Cat ladies can rejoice that they aren’t crazy for having this stuff anymore.

Animated Spider with Long Legs

Let’s not leave spiders out of the animal party, now. These guys are just a much a part of everyone’s household (whether they want them to be or not). While these may not always be a welcomed pet in your home, this spider is ready to party. This giant spider hangs down from your ceiling and even dances around and moves. You’ve seen how people react to a tiny little house spider, now imagine what they are going to do when they check out this guy.

Bilious Zombie Animated Fog Machine Accessory

Starting to switch back to some more gore, everyone loves a good fog machine. What’s better than giving the people what they love? Scaring the daylights out of them with your own tweak. This fog machine accessory will transform your slightly muggy get-together into the set of an old slasher film. Isn’t the best thing for kids, but still, everyone loves a good zombie apocalypse.

Candy Creeper Animatronic

If you really want to take your party to the next level, you can always get a creepy animatronic. Animatronics are creepy without even trying, now imagine what happens when one is built for the sole purpose of scaring? Just prop this lifelike guy up in a corner, when everyone’s in costume, people may not even recognize that he’s not just one of the guests. He’s much more than a passive partygoer in a creepy mask. The animated fiend with add some subtle jump scares to unsuspecting people just trying to enjoy some candy. (You can even leave him to give to trick-or-treaters when you’re busy getting your spook on.)

Hanging Friendly Ghosts

Now to take it down a notch and bring you some kinder classics, these ghosts will keep the Halloween spirit up when you aren’t looking to give people nightmares. These cute little guys are a great way to celebrate the holidays in one of the most traditional ways. These guys are cute enough to decorate kids playroom or even a school function. These guys will be a hit, there’s a reason Casper’s so famous. It’s a great way to ween people into something a little more intense or just appeal to your inner desire to have something cute and friendly in your home.

Animated Dragon Statue

There isn’t exactly anything too friendly about this guy. Now if you’re looking for something less traditional with equal parts cool and creepy, this is exactly what you are looking for. Everyone who’s anyone has wanted a dragon at some point in their lives and now’s their chance. This creepy monster brings together the scare of Halloween while still retaining some uniqueness that people can really express themselves by. Show off your Game of Thrones passion or even Disney obsession. When Halloween comes to an end, he can turn any playroom or den into a medieval lair all year round.

With Halloween coming up so soon, don’t get so caught up with costumes and pumpkin carving that you end up having to settle for plastic spiders and cobwebs for decorations. Halloween is the time of year when there is no such thing as too much. Decorate everything, put on your best costume, and absolutely terrify your friends and family. It’s the one time of year where nothing is more flattering than someone screaming and running in the opposite direction, embrace it.

Even if you didn’t find something here that quite clicked, there is a near-endless range of stuff you can find. From dolls to vampires, if there is a fear, there is a prop.
