You could even make it into a competition and give the winner a silly Halloween prize!

Organise for your friends and family to come to yours for a night of tricks and treats and ask for an entry fee to enter the party.  Make your party memorable by:

  1. Decorating your house with spooky decorations and have an eerie soundtrack playing when they arrive.
  2. Make some frightening Halloween themed food and drink like hot dog fingers, spider cakes, scary sausages and ghostly gateaux.

Organise some ghoulish games you can play to make the party more exciting including games such as apple bobbing, Halloween garden hunt or wrap the mummy competition.
