Zombie Apocalypse Halloween Party Theme
Here’s one for The Walking Dead fans among us – a zombie apocalypse Halloween party theme! Zombies are one of the most classic movie monsters of all time, and we can’t get enough. That’s why we’ve thrown not one, but two zombie parties to give you plenty of ideas for Halloween.
Catch up on our Top 10 Halloween party themes here, or keep scrolling to enter the apocalypse!
Zombie Halloween Party Ideas for Kids
Guests will need their own zombie survival kits to get through the zombie apocalypse unharmed. Rope, glow sticks, and toy weapons are all important additions to any survival kit, and kids will have tons of fun with them, too.
These zombies don’t stand a chance.
Those aren’t actually samples of an unknown killer virus – just punch. But, it’s easy and quick to make your own creative labels on bottle wraps for drinks and refreshments.
What could be more perfect for a zombie Halloween party than brain cupcakes? These are baked from red velvet to get that bloody look right from the get-go, and covered in pink frosting. The frosting is them sculpted with a toothpick and red food coloring or decorating gel can be used to finish off the brainy design.
Zombie costumes and a little bit of makeup can turn any kid into a ferocious force. Stay away to avoid getting eaten!
Zombie Halloween Party Ideas for Adults
The same basic concept stands, but there’s just a little bit more blood and gore. Check it out:
We used a basic black table cover with some bloody cloth and faux chains to decorate this table. Brains are really the only sustenance most zombies need, but you may want to diversify the available options for your guests just a little bit.
The snacks table is where all of the brain food for the party belongs, but here’s a zombified take on brain freeze while we’re at it. A decapitated zombie skull, packed with ice, is the perfect way to keep beers and beverages frosty cold.
A group of spooky spider decorations made themselves right at home in the corner of the room, along with some fake cobwebs. Using red ones adds a little variance to the theme and adds a “bloody” feel.
Giant spider props dangled from the ceiling, too, thanks to more chains and a bag of bones.
A patch of pumpkins and a creepy wooden fence prop, complete with skulls, helped to set the proper Halloween ambience – ghouls were more than free to shamble about, though. Zombie costume options included everything from a brainless zombie cop costume to a sexy zombie nurse. (Learn more from our list of Top 10 Zombie Costumes.)
Captain Miss America seems to have wandered into the wrong party. (She’s looking for the Superheroes vs. Villains Halloween party theme, which you can read about here.) Not even superpowers can save you from a zombie horde!
