Tired of the same Halloween parties every year with mundane decorations?

Now you want to throw a Halloween party, but want to add more flare to it and not sure how.  Then keep reading about these 6 creative ways to have a successful Halloween party.

Halloween is one of those holidays that can be hard to make sophisticated or classy.

There are a lot of cheap and overused Halloween decorations that can make the party dull and predictable.

When you are having adult friends over the last thing you want them thinking is how childish the party is.

There are a few creative decorating tips and tricks to ensure your party is a hit.

#1 Good Decorations 

One tip to keep your Halloween party on trend and not tacky is invest in good decorations for your Halloween table.

If you are throwing a dinner party, make the table the focal point. Add candles, classy dinnerware, and pumpkins.

To add even more of a refined look to the table buy decorative pumpkins.

If you buy real pumpkins don’t carve them, but instead add rhinestones or ribbons for a more elegant look.

#2 Incorporate Flowers

Another thing to do is incorporate flowers into the party decorations.

Flowers are always a great thing to add to a house no matter what time of year it is.

Especially around the holiday season, there are always flower companies creating floral arrangements to match the seasons.

They are great for table decorations and can add to the overall look of the party.

The flowers can be used to bring the theme of the party together, help add a fresh element, and add dimension to the table.

#3 Color Scheme 

The third thing to pay attention to is what the color scheme of the party should be.

Many people will gravitate to the color combo orange and black because that is what first comes to mind when thinking of Halloween.

To make the party unique try adding white, purple, brown, and black more into the decorations.

People will like seeing other colors than orange everywhere.  Dark reds and greens would also be great colors to add to the décor.

#4 Food 

Food is something people will be expecting during the party.

If the party is more casual and not a dinner party, there are some ways to spice up the appetizers you will have.

First off do not plan on only having candy for people even though it is Halloween.  Plan on having desserts and appetizers that people will enjoy.

A charcuterie tray would be easy and something people would want to eat.

You can even decorate the tray by placing Halloween décor around it.  There are so many ways to decorate and add to the food to make sure it matches the theme.

If you are making cookies, then frost them to match your color scheme.  You can also add dye to most food and drinks to add color.

#5 Party Lighting 

The lighting is also important for a Halloween party.

If the party is more laid-back then add some candles and keep the lights on.

If you are going for a dark spooky feel, then turn off the larger light sources and mainly use candles for the light.

The candles add a sense of mystery to the party and they can help create the atmosphere you want.

#6 Photo Op

Lastly, have a space where people can take pictures.

People always want to share what they are doing on social media so have a designated place for pictures.

You can DIY a backdrop and have themed props ready for people to use.

Even create hashtag for people to use so all the photos posted will be easy find.

Your guests will love this all of these creative Halloween party ideas!
