Killer Halloween Party Themes

Drew Stoga


Halloween is one of our favorite holidays.  When else can you dress like a pirate and get free candy? Hopefully not that often. Halloween parties can be blast but they can also be, well, a bit lame.  Great Halloween party themes are hard to come by.  Putting a couple Halloween decorations on the wall and playing “The Monster Mash” isn’t enough to keep your guests happy. To that end we have come up with four Halloween party ideas that will thrill your guests:

  • Celebrity Parties - Have everyone come as their favorite celebrities or pick a theme like “80’s Movie Stars,” “Rock Stars” or “Video Game Characters.”  Encourage, no - demand, that your guests dress the part.  Our talented GigMasters impersonators can help you pull off a great celebrity party.
  • Zombies! - When in doubt, have a Zombie Party!  Use The Walking Dead as inspiration for costumes, decor, and to get the perfect zombie crawl down-pat. If you really want to be authentic, bring in a face painter to create your goulish glow!
  • Murder Mystery Party – If you have ever seen the movie Clue, you know that murder mysteries can be a ton of fun.  Your guests will love trying to solve the mystery and as the host you can even get in on the act.
  • Group/Couple Costume Contest – Some of the best Halloween costumes are group costumes.  Encourage guests to think, and dress, as a group or as couples.  Some fresh new ideas include Emojis, Game of Thrones characters, and the gang from Orange is the New Black. When in doubt, the crew from Scooby Doo, Star Wars and other great classic movies and tv shows will always make for great group costumes.

Remember – Halloween is about going all out.  Like anything worthwhile, it takes a lot of work to pull off a truly great Halloween party. If you have any other creative Halloween party ideas please share them in the comment section below. You can also check out other party theme ideas from The Bash.
