Essentials for Throwing a Halloween Party

Welcome back to the Liv Avenida Blog! For the next few blogs of the month, we’re here to help you figure out and plan your Halloween celebrations! If you’re hoping to throw a Halloween party in your apartment here at Liv Avenida, remember these tips for making it one everyone will enjoy.



It doesn’t take much to turn your beautiful apartment into a temporary haunted mansion. Head to your favorite craft store for some orange, black, and white party decor. A few colored streamers, balloons, and tablecloths can set a great tone for a rockin’ party. Hang up some stretchable spider webs for a finishing touch.


Games and Activities

Depending on what you’re hoping to do for your party, you can be as creative as you wish. Play some classic board games or card games, make it more socialize-friendly by keeping the music down, or try some of the many Halloween games from Pinterest to involve your guests in some fun.


If you think your games, activities, music, and chatter might bother your neighbors, make efforts to accommodate them and their comfort. Check in with them and let them know your plans. Be willing to end the party at a reasonable hour or keep the music low.



Treats aren’t just reserved for the trick-or-treaters! Whether you just want to put out a bowl of Halloween candy on your table or you want to go all out, your guests will appreciate the effort. Try these Halloween muddy buddies for a cute twist on this delicious snack. You can also easily add a bit of Halloween fear into your refreshments by making these chocolate chip spider cookies or these adorable mummy pumpkin cookies.



Encourage your guests to come in their best Halloween getups to make it extra fitting for the holiday. Have a costume contest and give away treats or prizes for the best costumes for extra incentive. Or you can simply have a cowboy hat, feather boa, or other props handy for those who don’t have a costume.


Next week on the blog we’re going to offer you a few clever last-minute Halloween costumes, so if you’re not sure what you want to be, stay tuned for some ideas!
