Halloween Party Planning Tips


October is finally here which means it is time to celebrate  one of the most popular holidays in America- Halloween! This is a time to show your creativity through unique costumes and themed parties. As your source for Party and Entertainment needs in Boston, Total Entertainment has you covered with a host of Halloween costume rentals and party ideas!

 There are several fun yet simple ways to improve your Halloween party this year that will treat your guests to an experience they won’t soon forget:

Create a Theme

No party is complete without a theme! This will give your guests a clear idea of what to expect and also give it a flow and sense of direction. There are many different options for a Halloween themed party.

Here are a few ideas:

  • Vampires ( Choose your own favorite movie/ TV vampires)
  • Stranger Things
  • Scream
  • Zombies ( Choose your own favorite movie/ TV zombies)
  • Clue (Murder Mystery)

Dress to Impress

Costumes are one of the best parts of Halloween and that’s no trick. Dressing up is fun and it really brings out the hair-raising Halloween spirit in everyone.  Although there are plenty of ways to make your own costumes and stores to purchase standard costumes from, renting a professional costume is a way to thrill guests and get them talking. From a beautiful wonder woman costume to an unworldly alien, your guests are sure to notice the quality and detail of the costume.  Encourage your guests to dress up for your Halloween party or to rent costumes as well for the ghastliest group selfie in history.

Do the Monster Mash

Music is a vital part of any party and Halloween parties are no exception.  From “Thriller” by Michael Jackson to “Monster Mash” by Bobby Boris Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers, Halloween themed music is a great way to impress guests and get them moving. One advantage to hiring a DJ is that you won’t have to worry about creating the perfect playlist, or ads playing in between songs. By hiring a professional DJ, you can guarantee that you are going to hear music that your guests will respond to. From morbid to mysterious, Halloween music will set the mood.
