5 nice and easy Halloween party ideas

With Halloween just around the corner, we thought it was the perfect opportunity to check out some top Halloween party themes. Halloween is the best time of year for all of us to let our imaginations run wild, so why not try out some of these great party ideas.

Pumpkin power

 One of the most iconic symbols of Halloween is the simple pumpkin. The tradition of carving pumpkins was thought to have originated with Irish immigrants finding an abundance of pumpkins when arriving in the United States, and ever since then, no Halloween is complete without a carved pumpkin.

So whether you’re wanting to dress yourself up as a massive paper-mache pumpkin, or want to join in the fun with an advanced pumpkin-carving party, be sure to stock up on a range of different sized pumpkins and enjoy this pumpkin soup recipe afterwards!

Zombie takeover

Another big trend that has been hitting many media outlets is that of the zombie takeover. Whether it be through films such as World War Z, or top TV series like The Walking Dead, the zombie aesthetic is something that we can all enjoy with a simple touch of make-up and some threadbare clothes.

Other zombie touches for your party could include some blood-spattered decorations, edible eyeballs and of course the zombie classic Night of
the Living Dead running on repeat in the background.

Casino style

One Halloween trend that has been growing in recent years is the casino theme. With iconic casino films such as Ocean’s Eleven and Martin Scorsese’s Casino showing continued cultural influence in our lives, there’s never been a better time to dress as a mafia boss or a vampish villainess.

Vampire chic

We’re all aware of the massive cultural influences of vampires in recent films such as Twilight. And there’s no sign of the vampire aesthetic going away anytime soon. The vampire look is always a safe bet if you’re looking to head out on the town to a special Halloween-themed club night.
And whilst we can all attempt the vampire look with some fake-teeth and a luxurious cape, those wishing to get a little crafty could attempt to accessorise the vampire themes with the likes of this shoe-box vampire coffin!

Superheroes assemble

And finally, the massively cultural imprint left by the recent Marvel films is something that cannot be underestimated. This has seen the superhero party really taking off as a trend in recent years, with traditionally iconic comic-book characters such as Batman and Robin being rivalled by the likes of Wolverine and Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy as this year’s top Halloween characters.
