Halloween Decorations

To start, set the mood with some Halloween music and dim the lights. Of course, your decorations should also set the mood for your party. Think about using black lights and fog machines to create a creepy atmosphere. Also, consider  hanging spider webs in doorways, setting out bowls of candy "eyeballs," or placing flameless "candles" around the room.

One of the best parts of Halloween parties is costumes! Have your guests come in costumes, and make that part of the decor.

Add the props from your Halloween escape room or Halloween Murder Mystery party, and your home will be transformed into the perfect Halloween party spot!

Halloween Treats

Halloween food is my favorite. Candy, cookies, and more make Halloween eats easy to serve. When food can double as a craft, it's a bonus! Try this Oreo Cookie Haunted House as a fun activity your guests can eat. YUM!

Some other Halloween food includes witch fingers" made of green peppers and almond slivers or "monster brains" (aka peeled grapefruit segments). Add any kind of punch for a special "witch's brew"! Overall, Halloween food is creative, creepy, and fun!

Also, don't forget bowls of Halloween candy or caramel apples! 

Halloween Crafts

Finally, round out your Halloween escape room party with some fun Halloween crafts!

Decorate Halloween rocks to hide around the neighborhood or take home. Another simple Halloween craft is decorating plain witch hats. There are so many fun things to do with Halloween crafts.

Of course, carving pumpkins is always a Halloween go-to craft! Get some kid safe carving kits and patterns, and have fun!

Overall, your Halloween escape room party is sure to impress all your guests. Have all your party-goers come in costume and be ready to solve some intriguing and mysterious puzzles. Which Halloween escape room will you choose at your Halloween party?
