5 Terrifically Terrifying Halloween Party Themes

Halloween doesn't have to be all scares and no style. If you send Halloween party invitations early enough for guests to prepare, you can plan a spectacularly spooky soirée without recycling clichéd costumes and tired themes.

Fright Night

Send Halloween party invitations for a "TV Fright Night" themed party. Decorate different rooms with ideas from terrifying television shows–a strobe light and swirling decorations for a "Twilight Zone" room, caution tape and a masking tape body outline for a crime show room, or cardboard coffins, crosses and garlic for a vampire slayer room. Then, use your Halloween party invitations to let guests know to dress up like their favorite TV stars!

Monster Bash

Another great idea is to host a "Monster Mash Bash," with Halloween party invitations explaining that guests should wear costumes like their favorite monsters–Frankenstein, King Kong, Pokémon, mothers-in-law–and include in the Halloween invitations that you'll feature monster munchies like lady fingers, mud pie and gooey gummy worms.

Mummy & Daddy Halloween Party

For family festivities, send Halloween party invitations for a "Mummy & Daddy Party." Set the tone with an eerie Egyptian tomb theme, then supply rolls of inexpensive toilet paper for parents to turn their little ones into mummies–or vice versa.

Freaky Friday

You can also add a fun twist to your party with a "Freaky Friday" theme. Indicate on your Halloween invitations that guests should dress up like someone else attending the party, whether it's a date, a close friend who is also attending, or you–Halloween's happening host!

Hollywood Horror Halloween Party

Finally, a fabulous way to celebrate is with a "Hollywood Horror" party. Find a chic Halloween party invitation that's red carpet ready, and then decorate the house with movie posters, martini glasses, a Hollywood Hills sign–anything that reminds you of Los Angeles and movie making. Be sure to indicate on the Halloween invitation that everyone should dress up like celebrities, too, then snap a surprise paparazzi picture of each guest right when you open the door!

With a little creativity, unique decorations and the right Halloween party invitations, this year's festivities can be your best Halloween bash yet!
