halloween pumpkinThe most exhilarating aspect of Halloween, is the anticipation that something scary is going to happen. That’s what makes trick or treating fun, haunted walks fun, and most of all, Halloween parties. As you began planning the Halloween party that you would be hosting this year, were you feeling a bit stumped? Coming up with ways to keep your guests guessing where the next scare will come from, can be tricky.

The team at Kettleman’s Bagel Co. has a few brilliant ideas for keeping your guests on their toes, and keeping the excitement levels high during this year’s Halloween party.

How to Throw a Spooky Halloween Party

1. Create a fake murder scene

The bathroom is the scene for the majority of scary movie scenes. Use this to your advantage. Replace your shower curtain with a clear plastic shower curtain liner. Use a knife or scissors to create slash marks in the curtain. Use red food coloring and corn syrup to create a gory concoction and splatter it all inside the shower and on the inside of the shower curtain. To create an even scarier environment remove on of the light bulbs to keep the room dim, or half unscrew the lights to create that unsettling flicker.

2. Make use of a fog machine

The fright stems from the unknown. We don’t want to create too much of a mess in the main areas of our home and fog machines are the perfect tool for this. Create a highly fogged main room to keep your guests on their toes about what’s next to come.

3. Scary background noise

The typical thing to do here would be to play scary music. You could do this…or you could amp up the intensity by playing the scariest movies you know of. Play them loudly enough for people to hear them, but quiet enough that your guests don’t have to yell over one another.

4. Make it a contest

Another fun way to amp up the thrill is by making it a costume contest. Obviously, the scariest costume would win. This is the perfect way to get your guests more involved in the party!
