1. Set the table for a Creepy Dinner Party

A quick visit to a party, craft, or dollar store will supply you with everything you need to turn your dining room table into the focus point of your Halloween party. Start with a tablecloth. Try layering black lace over burlap or draping fake spiderwebs to create a spooky base. Have fun with your place settings and other table top decor. Candlesticks, pumpkins, skulls, and black birds serve as great centerpiece ideas and place card holders. Spice up your dinner and drinkware by buying Halloween themed plates, glasses & napkins, or make your own with Halloween decals and fabrics.

4. Create A Spooky Atmosphere
This is probably the most important element to hosting a great Halloween party. Don’t hesitate to go all out with your decor – both inside and out.  Include lots of fake spiderwebs – drape them on cabinets, lighting fixtures, picture frames and across your ceilings in small spaces. Keep your lights dim and utilize candles, jack-o-lanterns, and other lighted decor to set the mood. Have spooky music playing discreetly in the background.
