Party Themes


Zombie Apocalypse

Halloween wouldn’t be Halloween without zombies, so why not celebrate them?


Decorations

Homemade signs ‘warning’ guests of the risk of entering are easy to make

Mason jars filled with water, red food colouring, and a bag of zombie eyeballs from pound shop make scary eyes in a jar

Make a trip to the bathroom a daunting prospect by decorating with fake blood


Cover walls with maps showing the scale of the ‘outbreak’


Food & Table Decorations

Simple additions like these make table settings horribly fun!

Ensure all drinks are a terrifying shade of blood red, possibly accessorised with toy syringes

Serve scary looking food like zombie boogers


And maybe even a zombie head!

Dot a few devastating decorations around the table


Game

A kind of zombie version of tag. Keep aside some makeup to zombify people up, and have half of the guests be zombies and the other half stay normal. That is until they get bitten, in which case you can take them aside and zombify them.


Fancy Dress

Super easy to pull off, a zombie costume can combine any other costume with gruesome makeup and contact lenses, creating zombie version of whatever you are dressed as. More


Circus Freakshow

Gloriously freaky, a sinister circus will creep all your guests out!


Decorations

Mark the entrance with fun decorations with a dark twist, maybe adding blood or scary sounding places to a signpost like this

Plant horror versions of usually cute items like clown dolls around the room/house to take on a scarier side

Decorate with bunting. Increase the horror factor with blood splatters and bloody hand smears on the wall


Fairground props such as a lemonade stall can serve guests drinks

Similar to this, choose white balloons and add red confetti, or poor in a few drips of fake blood for extra gore


Food & Table Decorations

Serve simple food typical of a fairground, like popcorn

Circus themed centerpieces such as raffle tickets can be displayed in all kinds of ways

Quench guests’ thirst with drinks a blood thirsty shade of red and an eerie shade of black with circus like striped straws


Decorate the table with bright colours, similar to this, but add something scary to each place setting (plastic spiders, fangs, fake blood bottles etc) and lots of fake blood

Glass containers filled with Halloween themed sweets will make a great addition to the table too. Choose fangs, snakes, spiders, etc.


Game

Fairground and circus themed games such as a simple ring toss game can be played with a bottle and glow sticks


Buy a roll of raffle tickets to pass out to the winners of the games, or as tokens to play games.


Fancy Dress

Usual circus themed costumes such as clowns and the ringmaster can be made terrifying with the addition of zombie contact lenses, blood, and fangs.


Murder Mystery

This is a favourite theme for dinner parties all year round but it seems even more appropriate at Halloween.


Decorations

Place tape on the ground to mark where the ‘body’ was found

Use lots of ‘crime scene’ tape. Everywhere.

Set up a mugshot booth for people to have their photo taken against


Print off foot prints to direct people where the party is located

Use smashed glass effect stickers on windows to give the look of a break in or struggle


Food & Table Decorations

Serve blood curdling broken glass cupcakes

Label food with evidence markers

Use crime scene tape on the table, around cutlery, on party invites, etc.


Items can be marked for CSIs, or police, or similar


Game

Either buy a pre-made, or create your own, murder mystery kit. Each guest is designated a character in advance, and can dress up accordingly. When it comes to the actual party, why not set up some scary traps around the house to keep everyone on their toes!? If you you’d rather stick to something a little easier (or if there are kids playing too), play Cluedo.


Fancy Dress

Dress up in accordance to the game being played. If playing a murder mystery game ask guests to come dressed in character. If playing Cluedo, ask guests to dress up on the character themes - that’s to say Professor Plum, Miss Scarlett, Colonel Mustard, etc.


Harry Potter

Kids will love a Harry Potter themed party, and there are plenty of adults who secretly love the franchise too.


Decorations

Cover the door with a Platform 9 ¾ entrance

Use cardboard to make a “have you seen this wizard?” booth for guests to have their photo taken in

Decorate walls with Hogwarts house crests and colours


Transform white balloons into owls with pens and some simple drawing (these can even be used to ‘deliver’ the invites too)!

String ‘floating’ candles from light fixtures or the ceiling using clear string


Food & Table Decorations

Lay each place setting (or create a centerpiece) with a ‘golden snitch’, created by attaching white feathers to either side of a Ferrero Rocher

Chocolate straws make the perfect (edible) magic wands!

‘Butter beer’ served in mason jars or similar will be very popular!


Vegetable crudités can be labeled as coming from “Hagrid’s veggie patch”

Serve creepy crawly sweets in glass jars labeled Honeydukes (downloadable here) More


Game

You could watch some of the movies, or have a game of garden Quidditch!


Fancy Dress

More


Haunted House

A Halloween classic, everyone loves a haunted house.


Decorations

Make a human head in a jar, and place in the fridge

Make a trip to the bathroom a daunting prospect by decorating with fake blood

Lots of pumpkins with scary shapes cut into them, lit with candles


Cover the house, inside and out if you wish, in cobwebs!

Hang plastic bats and spiders in corners and at head height so guests brush past them


Food & Table Decorations

Serve witches cupcakes and creepy crawly sweets

Cover an otherwise lovely bunch of flowers with lots of plastic spiders, and use as a centrepiece

Black candles and painted-black pumpkins look great dotted around table


All drinks should have red food dye in to make them look like blood!

Serve green jelly with snake sweets in martini glasses (or similar) for a great effect


Game

So many possibilities! One of our favourites includes scaring guests with a message written in fake blood on the mirror. Also bobbing for apples can take on a gruesome twist by bobbing for "monster eyes" (brussel sprouts) in a "blood bath" (water with red food colouring).


Fancy Dress

Plenty of fancy dress opportunities here; from zombies to vampires, witches to wizards, and not forgetting mummies! More


The History of Halloween

Halloween has a long, varied, and enduring history, and on October 31st every year it is celebrated in countries across the world. All Hallows’ Eve, as it is also known, was inspired by the Celtic harvest festival, and is believed to have roots that go all the way back to the pagan Gaelic Samhain. The Halloween celebrations we know today have been influenced by a variety of folk customs from Celtic-speaking countries, remnants of medieval Christianity, and modern pop culture.

Samhain and Calan Gaeaf are some of the earliest celebrations to have inspired Halloween and are still the Gaelic and Welsh names for the holiday. These festivals marked the end of the harvest and the beginning of the winter. It was a time when the barrier between the mortal world and the spirit world was weakest, when all sorts of ghouls and beasties would start to roam the land. The souls of the dead were thought to return home, and people would go from house to house in disguise to hide themselves from the wandering spirits.

The holiday of All Saints (All Hallows) was introduced to the Christian calendar in the year 609 AD as a way of integrating popular pagan celebrations, but the holiday originally fell on the 13th of May. In 835 AD, it was switched to the 1st of November, the same date as Samhain.

Christians across Europe believed that once a year on Halloween night the dead buried in the churchyards rose for a giant party, known as the danse macabre. This can be seen in the murals and wall paintings of cathedrals, monasteries, and cemeteries across Europe, but the danse macabre wasn’t seen as scary. In fact, this association didn’t gain ground until the reformation of the church in the sixteenth century. The ghosts and spirits were originally thought to come from purgatory, but this conflicted with the new Protestant doctrine. Spirits rising from the grave could not be seen as friendly anymore – they were now viewed as being evil. So the popularity of traditional Halloween celebrations began to wane.

Halloween would once again be celebrated, though, thanks to the mass migration of the Irish and Scottish across the world. The holiday became especially popular in the United States, and it is from the US that we get many of our modern customs, such as costume parties and eating copious amounts of sweets!

Halloween is celebrated in lots of different ways across the world. In China, it is popular among expatriate westerners and has caught on amongst Chinese children attending international schools. The costuming side of the holiday has become popular in Japan, where they have special Halloween events. The Philippines has always celebrated it as a more traditional holiday, with children singing carols about the souls in purgatory and going from house to house offering a song in exchange for money or food. During the night, small items will mysteriously disappear, and it is believed that the spirits of loved ones show they’ve visited by taking something.

In the parts of Europe that were strongly influenced by the more extreme side of Protestantism, Halloween has only recently been reintroduced, but has been growing in popularity. It is now widely celebrated in Germany, particularly in areas that were part of the American zone during the Cold War. Halloween celebrations in Romania centre on the myth of Dracula. The spirit of Dracula is thought to live on the site of witch trials, which are recreated by actors on the 31st of October, and a large party takes place in Sighisoara, where Vlad the Impaler – the real-life inspiration for Dracula – was born.

Halloween Fun Facts

  • The Christian church used to encourage abstinence from eating meat on All Hallows’ Eve, so it became traditional to eat fruits and vegetables. That is why apples, sweets, and cakes became associated with the holiday.
  • The word Halloween originates from about 1745 and means ‘hallowed evening’. It comes from a Scottish word for All Hallows’ Eve.
  • Halloween is a time when the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead are thin. If you want to see the future, this is the perfect night, although most customs seem to be based around finding out who your future husband will be. You can carve an apple and toss the peel over your shoulder, revealing the first letter of your future husband’s name. You can sit in a dark room and look into a mirror, and the face of your future husband is supposed to appear. If you see a skull, however, you’re going to die before you get married. Scottish girls believed they could see images of their future husband if they hung wet sheets in front of the fire on Halloween.
  • Jack O’ Lanterns started as an Irish custom and before pumpkins were available, turnips would be used. They would be carved into ghoulish faces to scare visitors.
  • Samhainophobia is the fear of Halloween.
  • Apparently, if a person wears his or her clothes inside out and then walks backwards on Halloween, he or she will see a witch at midnight.

Bananas

Lollipop sticks

White chocolate

Decorative chocolate drops

Waxed paper

 

Instructions:

Cut bananas in half and insert lollipop sticks into each cut end. Freeze for 2-3 hours, until firm.

Ghost Pizza

Ingredients:

Olive oil

Pizza dough

Tomato passata

Mozzarella

Capers / black olives for eyes

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 240ºC. Brush the bottom of a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil. Press and stretch dough evenly to cover the bottom of the sheet.

Spread an even layer of sauce over the dough, leaving a 2cm border around all sides. Bake for about 15 minutes, until underside of the dough is golden.

Slice the mozzarella, then use a ghost-shaped cookie cutter to cut ghost shapes. Place ghosts on top of the hot pizza and bake for 5 minutes. Place two capers/black olives on each piece of cheese as eyes.



Gingerbread Skeletons

Ingredients:

Readymade (uniced) gingerbread men

White icing pen

 

Instructions:

Super easy! Unpack the gingerbread men on to a flat, clean surface. Ice skeleton shapes onto each.



Sweet Potato Wedges

Ingredients:

Sweet potatoes, cut into wedges

Olive oil

Thyme leaves

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Chervil, to garnish

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6.

Lightly cover the wedges with oil and thyme, seasoning well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.

Serve in a warm bowl and garnish with chervil.



Devilish Red Cabbage

Ingredients:

1 tbsp sunflower oil

1 onion, chopped

450g/1lb red cabbage, shredded

225g/8oz cooking apples, peeled, cored and diced

2.5cm/1in piece fresh root ginger, peeled and grated

Pinch of ground cinnamon or allspice

150ml/¼pt vegetable stock

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

 

Instructions:

In a large saucepan heat the oil. Stir in the onion, red cabbage and apples, cooking gently for 5 minutes.

Add the ginger and cinnamon or allspice and the vegetable stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated and the vegetables are tender.

Season to taste and serve.



Sausage Mummy Dippers

Ingredients:

Oil, for greasing

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp ketchup

French's yellow mustard

12 chipolata sausages

Tube of 6 ready-to-roll croissant

 

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and brush 2 baking trays with a little oil. Stir the honey, ketchup and mustard together in a bowl, then brush over the chipolata sausages.

Unroll the croissant dough, splitting it into 3 rectangles. Pinch together the diagonal perforated seams, then cut into long thin strips – you should get about 16 per rectangle.

Wind the little croissant strips around the chipolatas, leaving a little gap at one end to make a slit for the eyes. Place on baking trays and bake for 20 mins. Cool, then add a pair of eyes to each mummy with the mustard. Serve warm with your favourite dip.

2l cherry juice

Peel from 3 oranges, pared with a vegetable peeler

3 cinnamon sticks

10 cloves

6 slices ginger

Dracula's fangs sweets

 

Instructions:

Tip the cherry juice, orange peel, chilli, cinnamon sticks, cloves and ginger into a large saucepan. Simmer for 5 mins, then turn off the heat. Leave to cool, then chill for at least 4 hrs, or up to 2 days – the longer you leave it the more intense the flavours. If serving to young children, take the chilli out after a few hours.

To serve, pour the juice into a jug. Serve in glass bottles or glasses with a straw, and dangle a fangs sweet from each glass.



Slime Soup

Ingredients:

500 grams frozen peas

1 spring onion

750 ml boiling water

Vegetable stock concentrate to taste or a stock cube

1 ball mozzarella

 

Instructions:

Boil the frozen peas and spring onion in water with the stock until tender and cooked through.

Once the peas are soft enough to be blended, remove the spring onion.

Roughly chop the mozzarella and process in a blender with the peas and their liquid. Do this in two or three batches, pouring the soup back into the pan and heating gently to meld cheese and peas better together. Otherwise just set aside and reheat later.



Eerie Eyeball Pops

Ingredients:

100g/4oz Madeira cake

100g Oreo cookies

100g bar milk chocolate, melted

200g bar white chocolate, melted

Instructions:

Tear the Madeira cake and break the cookies into a food processor bowl, adding in the melted milk chocolate, before whizzing together.

Put the mixture into a bowl, then, using your hands, roll the mix into about 10 golf ball sized balls. Chill for 2 hours until firm.

Push a skewer into each ball, and carefully spoon the white chocolate over the cake balls to cover completely. Press a Smartie onto the surface while wet, and chill again until the chocolate has set. Use the icing pens to add a pupil to each Smartie and wiggly red veins to the eyeballs before serving.
