The easiest and most fun way to decorate for a Halloween party at home is with a haunted house theme. Gory is in the details, so think of ways you can lend a spooky touch to just about anything from faux spiders on the bathroom soap pump to cobwebs stretched over framed family photos. Try some of these spooky Halloween decoration ideas for decorating your party.
Dim the lights! Use your dimmer switch if your have one. If not, use overhead lighting minimally or replace white light bulbs temporarily with dimmer lights or black lights. Safely utilize candles to add extra spooky ambiance. Place tea lights or votive candles in wine goblets, clear glass bowls or glass tumblers; just be sure they are tucked in places where they will not be knocked over or within reach of little hands.
Drape serving tables and end tables with black tablecloths or black fabric. Top with tattered, tea-stained lace or torn cheesecloth.
Cover large furniture, such as your sofa with plain, white sheets or white fabric to give your home an abandoned haunted house look. To age the fabric, stain using tea bags in a slop sink or bathtub. Allow ample time for this to dry thoroughly before the party.
Make hand streaks using fake blood on medicine cabinet mirrors, shower tiles, smooth windows and on any large mirrors (anything easily clean-able) you might have in your home.
Sneak spiders and mice in unexpected places, such as in a bowl of candy.
Spooky black bats provide lots of inspiration for a Halloween party.
