Halloween is the perfect time to get creative with your party theme. You can choose from any of the themes listed below or mix and match them to create something completely unique.
Some people love combining a few different ideas, like a costume from one theme with decorations from another. If you want to use these ideas but don’t have room for all of them in your home, try re-creating just one aspect of each idea at home (like adding pumpkins on your porch).
Alternatively, you can also get yourself a costume set from Smiffys with everything you need, so you don’t have to worry about mixing and matching clothes to make a costume. There’s no DIY required and you get more time to plan for other things. You can go with whatever is convenient with you.
For a Western theme, you’ll need to get your guests dressed for the occasion. Cowboy costumes are always a good choice for Halloween, and if you want to take this idea even further, consider incorporating cowboy hats (or “sombreros”) into your decor. Make sure to have plenty of cowboy boots available for all those who want to dress up as cowboys or cowgirls.
If you’re looking for a Halloween party theme that is both elegant and spooky, this one is for you. To set the mood, put on some classical ballroom music and have everyone dress up like their favorite characters from “Downton Abbey” or another period drama.
If you’re not into costume parties or fancy dress (but still want to dress up), ask each guest to bring an item from her family’s past that has special meaning for her. Ask each guest to share what it means in relation to Halloween.
If you’re looking for a theme that will make your Halloween party gather some attention, then why not go with political figures past and present?
Politicians are always in the news and cause plenty of controversies. Who doesn’t love getting dressed up as an iconic politician from history? From Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump and everything in between, these costumes will start your party!
Superheroes are a popular theme for Halloween parties. From decorating your party space to dressing up like a superhero and even making the food look like a superhero’s emblem, this theme will help you create an awesome atmosphere for your event. If you want to make it extra special, set up an area where everyone can get their photo taken with Superman or Batman!
Fairy tales are timeless and have been used to tell stories about people and things for hundreds of years. They can be used to teach kids about the world, as well or better than any other book or fairy tale collection. The lessons learned in most fairy tales can help children learn important values and morals.
Fairy tales can also be used to teach people about different cultures in a fun way. From time to time, they may even introduce you to new cultures that you didn’t know existed before!
Hopefully, you enjoy these themes and have a great time planning your party. If you have any suggestions for other themes that should be added to this list, please leave them in the comments below!
