Trendy Halloween party ideas for 2015

EZcosplay Halloween BannerHalloween is just around the corner (October 31st) and I  have been busy researching the trendiest Halloween Halloweenparty ideas ever. This is not an easy task as most ideas have been done to death (excuse the pun :). Very popular are Costume parties and you can’t have a great Halloween party without costumes so how can we keep the costumes but switch it up a little? Here are my top three trendy Halloween party ideas that keep the costumes …yay!

1. Murder Mystery with a Horror Film Twist
Murder mysteries generally involve period costumes and have a storyline where all the guests take on prescribed characters while they endeavor to solve a mysterious murder. How about having this party ‘Horror Movie’ style? Every classic horror film starts the same way; some rebellious teenagers enter a foreboding property. There is no electricity (it’s midnight) and there appears to be no one home. Did I mention the car they arrived in had a puncture and they were miles from the next house? And ………. it’s a full moon. You’ve seen the movie.

This Halloween party has that as the theme but with a paranormal edge and one by one the guests get picked off until someone solves the mystery of ‘who-done-it’. This could also have a Blair Witch Project feel, with someone filming the action (badly) to play back later when the party switches to music and dance mode.

To plan a party like this, research some Murder Mystery Party plotlines and use your own warped imagination to over-write the action so it has a Halloween Horror movie vibe.

If this sounds like too much hard work I have performed a search and found something that may take the effort out of the script writing and that is Murder At The Toadwart Inn (wizards and witches style).This game will be popular with Harry Potter fans! There are many more great ready-made Halloween murder mystery party packs online via Amazon.

To get the party started you will also need some amazing personalized Halloween party invitations. You can go the traditional route or you can be über trendy and send some ‘hip’ retro chalkboard style party invitations – see left. More great ideas below:

Another trendy theme is of course Zombie Apocalypse!! I’m loving these Zombie Halloween party invitations (page down). Which brings me to:

2. How about recreating your favorite cult Zombie movie in your yard! The theme of the party would be ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ and guests can arrive dressed as Zombies, Zombie defence squad members and of course victims for Zombies to chase around. Resurrect Day of the Dead (sorry, I can’t help myself, I am just so … punny!)

Get creative and devise some fun Zombie battle games. Think Cosplay, think RolePlay, think fun! You can really go to town with a theme like this. If you’re a die-hard (mwah ha harrrrrrrr) zombie fan, this will be a breeeeeeeze.

Halloween party favor, Creepy EYEBALL Cake PopsTrendy Halloween Party Food Ideas

I have an amazing CakePop idea for Halloween – I thought I was a genius when I came up with this  … disembodied eye balls!!

Let me know what you think of these because eye love ’em! 😉

Here are some more Halloween Food Favor ideas ………yummy!

3. It’s a BUGS life – my eleven year old son gave me this idea and this is one for the kids. Instead of dressing the kids in the usual witches and ghosts costumes, how about have them dress as their favorite ‘BUG’ characters. These would be fun costumes and not so scary even though most of us are terrified of little creepy crawly bugs!! You can devise a giant version of Snakes and Ladders replacing the Snakes with centipedes and the ladders with long grasses. The bugs can then hop about the board having great fun 🙂 Check out these Fun Bugs Life gifts below.

No trendy Halloween party is complete without Halloween themed party favors, decorations and games  – check out this handpicked selection of trendy party fun goodies.

    Cupcake Baking Themed Party

    Cupcakes became hugely popular (dare I say trendy) not just for children’s parties but for adults too, who incorporate them into their wedding receptions and tea parties. Have you seen those towering cupcake wedding tiers?

    The new spin for cupcakes however is to have a cupcake baking party. If you’re wondering about that word ‘Kawaii’ in the blog post title, this means ‘cute’ in Japanese and is a very trendy word among Western kids. Get with it mom! 🙂 Though this is more about decorating cupcakes than necessarily baking them. Having a kitchen filled with 8 or more kids mixing flour and eggs isn’t my idea of heaven! 🙂 Decorating cupcakes however is whole different ballgame. You can set up a decorators table with a fancy polka dot or cupcake themed table-cloth (can even make your own) and set it up like a stall outdoors (weather permitting) with everything needed to decorate cupcakes in a nice long semi-organised row. Relay style – even better.

    Featured above to make life easier still is a wonderful cupcake baking party set which includes customizable party invitations, favors, plates and so much more. Items are ordered individually so you just buy whatever you want in whatever quantity needed. Also featured (page down) are some other cupcake party goodies.

    If you’ve had a cupcake party please do send in pics as we’d love to see them and share them here 🙂 Send them to me via creativeblogger@aol.com with ‘cupcakes’ in the subject line.

    Kids’ Parties – A Practical Guide to Hosting a Kids Party

    By Michelle Eckles

    Expectations

    Whether to have a “party” or not is up to the parents and what makes them feel comfortable. However, it’s best to be realistic when it comes to expectations. Throwing a party for a 2 year old with pony rides, a magician, jumping castle, decadent food and a three tier cake is a waste of money if the expectation is for that child to remember any of it. Chances are they won’t even stay awake or they may have a meltdown as it’s just all too much for them. It’s only natural to want to celebrate these milestones but for kids under five, keeping it low key with family and close friends is recommended, until the kids and parents are ready for the responsibility, cost and exhaustion that comes with throwing a party (as well as the fun, excitement and joy!!)

    Guest List

    Who to invite seems to cause the most angst when it comes to kids’ parties. Again it’s up to the parent and child as to what feels acceptable. Beware of inviting the whole class, unless looking after 20-30 kids is not daunting and you have a whip and chair handy! For school age children, their preferences should be respected. Inviting kids they don’t know at all or may not necessarily like, may lead to social issues on the day. Humility and resilience are also important – kids shouldn’t gloat about having a party or being invited to one but also need to learn they aren’t always going to be invited either. More kids = more cost, more time and preparation and more chance for accidents and incidents. However, the age plus one rule is not necessarily practical either -6 kids won’t necessarily create a party atmosphere or make playing party games workable. A good number is 12 to 15.

    RSVP

    Should you RSVP? YES! Some people go to a lot of effort, time and preparation when it comes to organising a kid’s party. There can be a lot of per head costs like party bags, entertainment and food. Respect that the organiser has gone to this effort and cost and their child is looking forward to being surrounded by their friends. Also no one should be put in a position where they don’t have a party bag, cupcake or prize for a child because they weren’t expecting them. Having only one or two kids show up would be even worse.Don’t rely on kids to RSVP to the birthday child or their parent – communicate directly with the organiser to prevent misunderstandings. This also ensures they then have all parents’ details if something happens on the day or they are not staying.

    There was a post recently about the controversial decision of a mother in the UK to send the parent of a boy that didn’t show up to her child’s party, an invoice for �15.95, as a no show fee (to cover the ski slope fee). Okay, maybe that’s a bit extreme and yes, plans change and kids get sick but if a child does RSVP yes and they can no longer make it, then it’s courtesy to let the organiser know, even if it’s just a text message.

    Sometimes taking siblings is unavoidable and organisers appreciate this. Again it’s courtesy to let them know if siblings are coming and if the party is at somewhere like a roller skating rink or the movies it is their parent’s responsibility to pay for and supervise those siblings.

    For the organiser -hand out the invitations at least 2 weeks before the party; the more notice the greater chance of people being able to make it. Be aware of things like Saturday morning sports that can prevent a lot of kids from being able to make it. A great tip to prevent invitations getting lost is to pop a magnet on the back so it goes on the fridge. Also, make sure all communication options are listed, e.g. mobile phone and email and the date the RSVP is required by. That way there is no excuse for someone not being able to contact the organiser.

    Drop Off or Stay

    This depends on the party venue, e.g. secure play centre vs a park or the family home; age and personality of the child and the relationship with the birthday child’s family. The best thing to do is assess the situation when arriving, e.g. how many kids there are, the level or supervision, etc. but it wouldn’t normally be considered appropriate to leave a preschool age child at a party without a parent nor a child who may be clingy or insecure.

    Gift Opening

    Giving a kid a pile of presents and telling them they can’t open it would be like putting a block of Cadbury’s finest in front of a chocoholic and telling them they can’t have it. However, it can cause chaos and delay things like games or entertainment. The best option is to discuss with the birthday child beforehand when the present opening will be. The end of the party is good after the entertainment and cake are done but before everyone leaves so that the giver gets to see the child open their present. Thank you cards may not be practical if a parent is not sitting there opening the presents like you would do with a toddler as you may not even be able to match the presents to the givers. Parents should not be too hard on themselves when it comes to this practice but do ensure the birthday child thanks their friends for their gift and for coming and vice versa.

    Provisions

    What should the party host provide? The merriam-webster dictionary describes a party as “a social event in which entertainment, food, and drinks are provided”.

    How to entertain the kids is probably the second biggest issue behind who to invite and is the one aspect of a kids’ party that parents are mostly likely to outsource. It depends on the age of the kids, number of kids, whether the party host is comfortable entertaining a group of kids and if not what their budget is. As a guide – toddlers are happy to play with what is in the home, I.e what the birthday child plays with or the local play centre or playground. Jumping castles, face painters and balloonist are great for pre-schoolers and party games are good to introduce from age 5 and upwards, as are magicians, animal shows, etc. Movies, roller skating rinks, etc. are better left for when they are a bit more mature and able to self regulate their behaviour (and coordination!). It’s important to be consistent. Don’t raise a child’s expectations with a trip to Dreamworld one year and takeaway dinner from Maccas the next.

    The type of food to provide depends on the time of day the party is being held. If the party is from say 11.00 to 1.00 then there is an expectation of substantial lunch time food. Lighter refreshments are fine for late afternoon. Also, if there is an expectation for the parents to stay then they should be provided for also, especially as it’s quite likely they have been running around doing errands beforehand and have probably forgotten to eat. Make sure there is plenty of water and not just cordial and soft drinks, especially in summer.

    Party Bags

    The kids are worn out from running around, bellies are full, the cake has been done and it’s time to go home and the first child that leaves is looking expectantly at the party host and whispers in anticipation “are there party bags?” (okay maybe it’s just my child that does this!!). Despite extensive research it is difficult to locate the origin of “party bags”. They began as lolly bags but with the health revolution and high rate of childhood obesity these have become frowned upon. But let’s face it, kids are materialistic! Who wouldn’t want to receive a little gift? But they also like giving – they take pleasure in handing out goody bags, especially if they have made or decorated them. It’s up to the party host to decide what to give – it’s a bit pointless to hand out something that is going to get thrown in the trash within an hour of getting home just for the sake of distributing something,but it’s also not necessary to send them home with a mini Van Gough or iPod. Something practical they can use or an art/craft activity they can do quietly when they get home is sure to be appreciated. Whatever the decision, the intention should be obvious – if party bags are going to be handed out, it’s good to have them in plain view and task the you birthday child or a relative with making sure the kids get one when they leave so no one misses out! If there are no party bags, make it light and polite, e.g. “sweetheart the prize you got in the pass the parcel was our thank you gift.”

    On a recent survey conducted (of my own two children ), when asked what their favourite part of having a party is, their response was “the cake & the party bags”, whereas I would spend far more time on decorations and entertainment. It just goes to show that parents probably stress unnecessarily over aspects that the birthday child and their guests may not even notice. It doesn’t mean I’m going to stop doing those things as I enjoy it and it’s my contribution to them. However, I do outsource things I don’t like to do, e.g. the cake, food, taking photos, etc. so they are things I don’t have to stress about and I’m left to enjoy the day with the kids, which is what it’s all about in the end…
