Easy Ways to Make Your Halloween House Party Extra Spooky!

Everyone loves Halloween, it's one of the few times a year when we can all dress up like our favourite fictional characters and get excited about sweets. If you're throwing a party this year, why not try some of these sure-fire ways to take it to the next level!

This one is a Halloween favourite, trying peeling and carving some apples to use as shrunken heads for some apple bobbing.

There's no 'I' in team, there's no 'I' in Beer Pong, but give this party-favourite a Halloween twist by playing with a glass eye! (A coloured-in ping pong balls works just as well)

Melt some red candle wax and have it dribble down the side of a white candle to give make it look bloody terrifying!

To let your guests know where the party is, or to show the rest of the street that you're the undisputed ruler of Halloween, grab some white balloons, draw a ghostly face on them and place a glowstick in them. Attach them to the door and voila! Spooky glowing balloony ghosts! 

Alternatively, If you're looking for something to really set your pary apart, Butterfly Occasions are sure to be able to help! They have a great selection of party supplies and can create amazing bespoke balloons. Find out more!

Get the kiddies involved in the Halloween fun by playing 'Mummy Wrap'. Get them into pairs, give them a couple of rolls of toilet paper or kitchen roll, and the first one to cover one completely like a mummy wins a prize!

Carving a pumpkin is difficult -  we have a Guide all about it here - if you messed one up, or just aren't that artistic, cut one in half and fill it full of ice. One thing that will surely result in blood-curdling screams is warm beers!

Staying on a keep-all-your-drinks-cold theme, filling a rubber glove full of water and freezing it makes a great addition to any punch bowl full of Halloween cocktails! Just make sure you cut the glove off before you put it in the bowl.
