Halloween is almost here and whether you have kids who love to celebrate or you’re a big kid yourself and adore Halloween, there’s loads of fun to be had with throwing a Halloween bash at home. Of course, every great Halloween party needs a few essential ingredients and we’re here to help you figure out the right stuff to ensure you have a frightfully fun Halloween night. These 5 spooky party must-haves are guaranteed to make any Halloween get-together a memorable one.
Halloween treats and loot bags
Chances are you’re going to have a few trick or treaters come around to your house on Halloween night. Make sure you have treats and snacks ready for the little witches and wizards rocking up at your doorstep. Individually wrapped sweets like bite-sized chocolates or wrapped sweats are easy to hand out while healthier snacks like fruit and nut bars are also a great choice.
For those attending your party make sure you have a good selection of Halloween-themed eats and treats or even loot bags to treat every guest as a take-home snack. A sweet buffet is always a winner at any party. Set out glass jars loaded with different types of sweets and mini scoops, and let guests fill their own goodie bags to take home. Stock up on a variety of treats, from gross gummy body parts (feet, ears, and eyeballs) to classics like bite-sized Chomp chocolates and Fizz Pops.

Make sure you have enough spooky Halloween-themed décor to set the mood for your party. Try to decorate your space with light-up haunted house figurines, a cauldron for your frightfully delicious punch, jack-o’-lantern decorations, fake cobwebs and spiders, paper bats, balloons, and other Halloween-themed decorations. It doesn’t have to cost you the earth, but a few Halloween-themed décor items can go a long way to helping make your party a big success.
A scary playlist
If you’re throwing a grown-up Halloween bash for adults, put together a playful playlist of favourite on-brand Halloween songs to go along with your theme. Think The Doors’ “People Are Strange” and Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”. If it’s a scary bash for little ones, then consider investing in a soundtrack of creepy sound effects that will keep them entertained throughout the party.
A ghoulishly good punch
No Halloween party would be complete without a delicious punch and there’s no punch more fun to make than a Halloween-themed punch! Serve one that’s blood-red, ghoulish green, putrid purple, orange, or black and use dry ice to create an eerie mist. Just make sure it’s also delicious, or your guests won’t come back for more.
We all love stuffing our faces with sweets on Halloween but don’t forget to serve plenty of savoury snack items to balance out all that Halloween sugar. Think easy to eat and serve solutions like mini pies, cheese and crackers, chips and dip, or anything that has a savoury kick to it.
