In many countries around the world, preparations for the spookiest day of the year, Halloween, begin in early fall. The sooner you decide on the theme and guest list, the fewer unforeseen problems you may encounter.

Preparing for a good party takes a lot of time and effort, so you should think about it at least a month before October 31. If you've decided to throw a party, Lifesavvy has 6 top tips.

Choose a theme

Of course, the theme is the same for everyone who is preparing to celebrate Halloween, but you can use your imagination and throw a party in the style of witches or, for example, a haunted house. One chosen theme will help you focus on a specific direction, choose the right decorations and games.

Invite guests

The next step is to create a guest list. Invite your friends in advance so they don't have other things to do or parties to attend. If they already have them, then review the list. This will help you avoid refusals, unnecessary meals, and a spoiled mood before the 31st. Ask them if they're happy with the theme they've chosen while there's still time to change it.

Choose your decorations

Before the prices for decorative spider webs, pumpkins, and drinks go through the roof, start decorating your house or apartment. Online orders are available all year round, so you can snag the spookiest games and decorations without the rush.

Decide on the food

You shouldn't start preparing drinks and snacks in September, but a rough idea of the holiday table won't hurt. If you start thinking about this at the stage of inviting guests, you can find out the preferences of the majority and roughly imagine the list of products and calculate the prices.

Get the games ready

What's a party without group games? Most guests may no longer be interested in classic entertainment, but you'll at least have time to ask around online for atypical and themed games you can buy or make up. This will definitely be remembered by guests and make the celebration more interesting.

Announce the dress code

Not all costumes can be purchased, made in a hurry, or found in the wardrobe from previous celebrations. If your party is classic, it will be easier for your guests, but "easy" does not equal "interesting." Get your guests interested and offer them a dress code that they will have to think about. Costume judging is perhaps the most interesting part of Halloween.
