Have Fun With a Haunted House This Halloween

Haunted Houses make great Halloween parties. Not only are they a lot of fun, they can be tailored to your interests.

Like witches? Do a creepy witch themed haunted house, with lots of cauldrons around as signs that witches must be near. Set a few of them around the house, and fill them with dry ice. The smoke and fog will make your party exceptional. Put a few witch’s brooms around, and ramp up the atmosphere.

Your haunted house can range from elaborate to simple. Haunted houses are always fun for Halloween. Make your party creepy – and the place to hang out – this Halloween with these fun tips.

Here are a few things to add to your haunted house to make it suitably creepy:

Bats, of course. Bats and Halloween go together like peanut butter and jelly. Nothing spookier than bats hanging from the ceiling. Unless of course, it is:

Skulls – set a few skulls around to scare your guests and set the atmosphere.

Creepy music is a must. Screams and ghostly moans are perfect for Halloween parties.

Flickering lights – you can buy bulbs that flicker throughout use. It adds a creepy tone to the whole party.

Tombstones – how scary is a Halloween party without graves and tombstones? Cemetery lawn signs are a nice touch.

Ghosts are nearly mandatory. You can make your own from sheets, or buy them pre-made and already ultra-spooky.

Spiders and spider webs placed around the house. Drape them over doorways, chairs, and tables.

Halloween food can be part of the Halloween party fun. Jack-o-lantern cupcakes, spider cookies, and other spooky foods are great for parties.

Costume contest – do a different sort of Halloween contest and give out prizes for sexy costumes, for the best TV character, or have a video game character contest.
