Something wicked this way comes… wickedly cool, that is! Although summer fun might be fading, autumn enthusiasts know that the final days of September are just the beginning of an amazing Halloween countdown fit to last all spooky season long. Whether you’re working on the perfect costume up until that big night, or you’re partying ahead of time to keep the whole fall ghoulishly fun, there’s plenty of ways you start preparing for your Halloween event – and especially with help from a DJ in Los Angeles in the mix! Read on to learn how you can perfect your next spooky party.
Try a Themed Event
Set your Halloween event apart from all the rest with a fun theme. For example, you might invite your guests to arrive in a fitting costume or meet a certain challenge – such as putting together the funniest, topical, pop-culture-relevant costume. You might be looking for the best take on a classic Halloween monster costume, or you could invite guests to dress from a different era. Or, maybe the event itself takes on a new theme – such as being part of a haunted house or involving a murder mystery as a main event.
Plan a Festive Feast
What’s a party without delicious food? Halloween is the perfect time to get creative with festive, quirky, and even-a-bit-creepy selections. Consider decorating cake or cookies with a frightening theme – like ghosts, spiders, or other Halloween monsters. Get both tricks and treats with surprising, gross-looking food to appease the daredevils in your midst. Try adding candy apples adorned with gummy worms, pigs in a blanket decorated to look like fingers, or other unsettling dishes to your table spread. Plus, never miss an opportunity for themed cocktails! Opt for a blood-red Halloween punch, mad scientist drinks in beakers and test tubes, or caramel and apple garnishes for seasonal flair.
Create a Spooky Atmosphere
Now that you’ve handled the theme and the food, you need to perfect the atmosphere! Get guests into the Halloween spirit with decorations. Try artificial cobwebs, skeletons, spiders, pumpkins, ghosts, bats, candlesticks, and more to create an eerie setting that’s perfect for your party. Maybe you’d even like to invite guests into a spooky photobooth where they can showcase their costumes on social media along with fun, themed props. Plus, it’s easy to add excitement to the nighttime atmosphere with otherworldly lighting – a must-have addition to your Othaside DJs event package! With our experience in Los Angeles event planning, we’re happy to cater to Halloween decorations and musical needs.
