It’s that time of year again and Voucher Angels HQ are prepping for their Halloween hijinks! Organise the perfect grown-up Halloween party for you and your friends with our easy 5-step guide. From food to music, your Halloween party will rival any over-priced club night!

Pick a Halloween Party Theme

The first step towards throwing a great Halloween party is to pick your theme and stick to it. Choose from a vampire theme, monster mash, zombie theme, or theme your party around your favourite scary film. Try to choose a theme that can be applied to everything – from food to decorations and costumes.

Get Decorating

Once your theme is chosen, you can start your Halloween decorating! Consider creating a spooky entrance for your guests by carving some pumpkins to go by the door, and add fairy lights to your hallway to guide them in.

Complete the look with some wall & ceiling decorations and strategically placed cobwebs and spiders!

Curate Your Spooky Playlist

All the Halloween classics mixed in with your go-to party tunes. Choose some tracks that will keep the party going and throw in some go-to Halloween tracks like Thriller and Monster Mash. Why not ask your guests for their favourite Halloween song to add to the playlist?

Sort Your Snacks

No Halloween party is complete without spooky-themed snacks and drinks. We have a £50 voucher for you to spend with Virgin Wines so you can keep the red wine pouring! Or if wine isn’t your thing, check out our discounted case of beer from Beer 52. Finish off your Halloween refreshments with themed nibbles in Halloween colours like black, orange, green and purple. You can pick these up in a supermarket or get creative and make your own!

Now to keep your guests entertained! Pick a few of your favourite scary films to have on in the background and prepare some themed games to play. Why not organise a murder mystery or play a drinking game along with your chosen scary film?
