Host a spooky Halloween get-together at home

As fall approaches and the leaves begin to change, you might be making plans for Halloween. While River West Flats is near a variety of downtown Indianapolis events and activities, a smaller, more intimate get-together might be more your cup (or cauldron) of tea. Here are some ideas for hosting a laid-back and spooky Halloween-themed gathering at home. 

Keep it low-key

The first thing to remember when you’re hosting a get-together in an apartment community is to be respectful of your neighbors. Don’t invite too many people, keep the volume of your (spooky) music at a reasonable level, and wrap it up (like a mummy, get it?) before it gets too late.

Terrifying tunes

If you don’t have time to curate your own personalized party playlist, you’re in luck. Many streaming services have done the work for you by providing playlists from all genres and time periods. “Monster Mash,” “Time Warp,” and “Thriller” are at home on any playlist, but if you don’t love the classics, get creative! “Bury a Friend” by Billie Eilish can absolutely be a Halloween song. This Halloween playlist has a little something for everyone.

Props and party favors 

No gathering is complete without props for your photo wall. You can find a variety of fun photo stick props at Oriental Trading to fit whatever your theme happens to be. 

Spooky snacks

Pinterest is a veritable buffet of Halloween party snacks. From the black Halloween punch to the “blood” fountain (white chocolate and red food coloring), you’re sure to find something to suit your theme and guests.
