Halloween is the perfect excuse to gather your friends and family and have one hell of a party. Whether you want to host a spooky kids' night or throw a devilishly good cocktail bash for the adults, a little planning goes a long way.
Here’s a foolproof checklist of what you need to ensure that your Halloween party is a frightful fête:
Everyone loves a themed costume party and Halloween is the perfect excuse to throw one. From your favourite Stranger Things character to traditional zombies and pirates, there are tons of costume ideas out there, so get creative.
If you want to raise the stakes, organise a prize for the best dressed and let your guests know in advance. Don't forget to charge your camera too, because you're going to want to take some scary snaps to commemorate the occasion.
It’s almost mandatory that any venue hosting a Halloween party is decorated accordingly. Think cobwebs, spiders, piles of bones and everything in between to create that perfect spooky atmosphere.
Trick-or-treating is an iconic part of the Halloween tradition, which makes lollies and confectionary an absolute must. Grab share packs of all your favourite goodies, or look for specially themed Halloween candy to put around the house and gift to your guests as they leave.
It's not a party without some seriously good food and Halloween gives you the perfect opportunity to get creative in the kitchen. From ghoulishly good cakes to bloody cocktails, there are so many fun Halloween recipes to try. Don't forget that decoration and presentation go a long way, so make sure they look boo-tiful.
Halloween party games can be as frighteningly fun for kids as they are for adults. Be inspired by the simple party games below or invest in some spooky board games to keep your guests entertained for hours.
Saving money on Halloween decorations is one DIY step away. Here are some hacks that won’t cost a fortune or hours to make.
What do you need?
Paint the jars, add a spooky design and leave to dry. On the night of the party, place a small tea light candle in the jar for maximum effect.
What do you need?
Grab some old toilet paper rolls and cut out some eyes. Put a glow stick in the centre of the roll and place the Halloween eyes in and around the garden.
What do you need?
Place the jar in an unlikely spot, such as the fridge, then watch as your guests run and scream.
What do you need?
Grab some plastic spiders and stick them to the wall with double-sided tape. This is easy to put together and can be placed just about anywhere in the house.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product or service.

If you're unsure about anything, seek professional advice before you apply for any product or commit to any plan.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or 'Advertisement' are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category.

Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment when you click on those buttons or apply for a product. You can learn more about how we make money here.
When products are grouped in a table or list, the order in which they are initially sorted may be influenced by a range of factors including price, fees and discounts; commercial partnerships; product features; and brand popularity. We provide tools so you can sort and filter these lists to highlight features that matter to you.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad-based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle.
