Themes and decorations

Wendesday Addams

Nothing says creepy better than a Wednesday Addams theme. This spooky and enigmatic character fits the Halloween spirit perfectly. Use black as your main colour, add touches of a haunted mansion or a dark garden as decor, place Wednesday’s image around the party, and you’re good to go! Looking for more decoration inspiration:

Shark Party

For younger kids, a creepy or scary themed Halloween party might be too much for them. And they might end up being too scared to have fun. How about a cute shark party instead? You can use shark-themed balloons, put up an underwater scene backdrop or cake, and have shark-shaped cookies. Your animal-loving little one will love this theme.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Heroes in a half shell, turtle power! That catchy song is well-loved by kids everywhere, so why not a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme for your Halloween party? There’s lots of TMNT decor to choose from, and if your child loves the character, a turtle costume is perfect!

A superhero theme for a Halloween party? Why not? Kids of all ages will love the idea of dressing up as their favourite superheroes for Halloween. You can give out capes as party favours, serve superhero-themed sugar cookies, and even the adults will enjoy having a valid excuse to dress up as Superman, Wonder Woman, or Ironman.

If your child loves science, carry it over to Halloween! The great thing about a science-themed party is you can get as creative as possible when it comes to preparing experiments the guests can do during the party tog, presenting food as quirky “chemicals”, and using real laboratory equipment as containers for everything-from party snacks to favours.

There’s something about Spiderman that captivates children. Maybe because he can climb walls, shoot out spiderwebs, or because he learns independently (no grownups required.) Whatever the reason is, if your child is a fan, a Spiderman theme for Halloween is perfect! There are loads of Spiderman decor to choose from, including foil Spiderman balloons, fake cobwebs, and a red/blue/black balloon arch.

Plants vs. Zombies

If you want to do a zombie-themed Halloween party, but you want to make it more family-friendly, go for Plants vs. Zombies instead. This theme is the perfect combination of cute and creepy.

You can find lots of Plants vs. Zombies Halloween party decorations online, so decorating won’t be a problem!

Witches are a mainstay of Halloween, so a witches themed party is another great idea. There are lots of ways you can incorporate the theme into your decor – from smoking cauldrons, broomsticks, to witch hats. Hand out a witch hat to all the guests and voila! Your theme is set.

Haunted House

Nothing says Halloween more than a haunted house theme. This spooky theme will send shivers down your guests’ spines. Use flickering candles, cobweb-filled rooms, and headstones to set the mood. Add background sounds of creaky doors or hushed whispers and you’re ready to go. Remember to tone the decor down if you have young guests attending your party.

Monster Bash

Silly monsters, scary monsters, or cute ones, the choice is yours! If you have younger kids, think Monsters Inc. type of monsters, while older kids can handle scarier ones, more like Godzilla. You can use googly eyes, monster masks, and fuzzy pompom balls (as cute monsters) as your main decor.

Sweet Treats

Of course, you can’t celebrate Halloween without lollies! After all, a huge part of Halloween is trick-or-treating. So, why not center your Halloween party around sweet treats? Think Halloween candy land and decorate your party with giant candy corns, red candy swirls, or giant jelly beans.
