5 Spine-Chilling Halloween Event Ideas to Spook-ify your Night

Happy October! At ABCey, we are so excited to start October because that means Halloween is right around the corner. We’ve collected a list of our 5 favorite hair-raising Halloween event ideas for you to start planning now!

Halloween, Dinner Party

Host a Murder Mystery Party

Send out invitations in creepy-crawly font and plan the meal to revolve around Halloween-inspired food (think: Bloody Mary potatoes, Vampire Delight Martini, and Turtle Caramel Apples).

Halloween Event Ideas

Throw a Scary Movie Marathon

Make some popcorn, light some candles, and get ready to scream! In need of some scary movie ideas? Put on Hellraiser, Friday the 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, and, obviously, Halloween!

Halloween Event Ideas

Hold a Pumpkin Carving Party

With a spooky playlist and plenty of templates, hold a pumpkin carving party to get in touch with your artsy crafty side. Bonus: You can roast the pumpkin seeds for a healthy, delicious snack when you’re done!

 

Halloween Event Ideas

Entertain a Haunted House

While this event might call for the most work, the quality you put in will most certainly correlate with the number of screams. Don’t forget to add plenty of cobwebs and maybe even a chainsaw or two.

 

Halloween Event Ideas

Throw a Costume Party

Of course, for all of the events above, costumes should be involved, but have a specific party that recognizes each person’s unique outfit! Vote on “Most Creative,” “Scariest Couple,” “Naughtiest Costume,” and “Best Dressed!” Eat, Drink, and Be Scary!

Pumpkin Carving Party

We are always looking for any excuse to have an event! This October, why not have some friends over for a pumpkin carving party? What better way to ring in the holidays and to relax with friends?! Here are 5 of ABCey’s favorite things we think you may need for this Halloween inspired event.

1. Blankets | We love all these blanket ideas from Brit+Co. So cute and warm, we can’t pick!

2. Warm Spiced Cider | Warm spiced cider is a must for any party past September. Our favorite is this one from Trader Joes!

3. Pumpkin Pie Popcorn | Spice up this snack with the perfect fall flavor: pumpkin! Guests will love this fun take on the otherwise ordinary snack.

4. The Perfect Playlist | No party is set without the perfect playlist. We like to use Grooveshark to make playlists and share them with our friends.

5.  Pumpkins and Cutting tools |We love this article from Marthat Stewart with all the pumpkin tools you could ever need and how to use them!
