The Orange List: Top Halloween Party Themes
Can you feel it? Halloween season is in the air! We’re celebrating Orange Tuesday by showing off 10 amazing Halloween party themes that you can use to host the best bash on the block.
All throughout Halloween season, we’ll be updating this post with more details on each of our themes, but we’ll give you a small taste of each one for now. Read on for inspiration!
We were inspired by our favorite classic horror films for this costume party theme. Freddy, Jason, and Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein were all there!
Since you can’t really go to Elm Street, bring Elm Street to the party with this sign!
2. Ghost White
This all-white color scheme boasts plenty of ghosts to spook the guests. Skeletons, shrouds, and an all-around uneasy feeling give this party a chilling atmosphere.
Ghost costumes are a must! Party patrons should look the part.
3. Mad Masquerade
Have a Mardi Gras mashup for Halloween! Bringing Halloween to a classy masquerade ball is a creative way to go, with guests dressed in their best masquerade costumes.
Masquerade masks can be used as decorations, too.
4. Medieval Malice
Here’s one for the history buffs: go “ye olde school” this Halloween! Make use of Renaissance fair costumes, and decorate your whole house into a medieval era castle.
Silver candlesticks and gold goblets make the perfect table settings. Add some doubloons for good measure!
Even the menu can be made with “medieval” in mind, and walls can be adorned with swords and shields.
5. Orange You Scared?
6. Princesses on Ice
Our other Halloween parties specialize in building chilling atmospheres, but this one is positively Frozen! If you’re the proud parent of a couple of princesses, then Frozen costumes and a Frozen party theme are perfect for Halloween.
Find Frozen party supplies on Birthday Express.
7. Scary Tales
8. Somewhere in Time
This Halloween party is a trip through time – decorate different spaces around the party as different decades and have guests represent them with costumes. For example, flapper costumes would fit with the 20s room…
…and poodle skirts and saddle shoes fit with the 50s area!
9. Superheroes vs. Villains
10. Zombie Apocalypse
There’s a new take on “brain freeze” – chill your drinks with a zombie ice bucket.
