Halloween 2009

Postby marti371 » Tue Jun 16, 2009 9:53 am

I am in the planning stages for this year. I'm looking for ideas or suggestions. Espcially with it being on a Saturday this year.
Any thoughts? :mrgreen:

We've toned it down a bit in recent years, but this season we're having a blow out. Nobody has to get up early the next morning, after all. I'm hoping to get close to thirty people. We'll hire babysitters to take care of the kids while the rest of us adults get drunk, watch scary movies, and wish we were young again.

You're only as old as you think you are, and your spirit is ageless.

But all of you can still get hangovers :P
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

I'm only 40, but some people think that's over the hill.
When it comes to hangovers, getting older does take its toll, but your ability to get a hangover remains. In fact, that's the one thing that comes easier with age...

I won't be able to plan much until it gets closer to October unfortunately.
Unless I lose my job by then, then I won't have to worry about it. :lol:
I get Sundays off guarenteed though, so if worse comes to worse I'll just celebrate that following Sunday.
We get to wear costumes at work though, and I already planned on decorating the lobby at my college. :lol:
This probably seems crazy, crazy, a graveyard theory,
A ghost tried to approach me and got leery.
Ask him a question and he vanished in a second...

Usually you pick a theme first. What sort of things are you interested in? Do you have decorations/ideas you want to work around? Things you'll want to consider are the ages of people you're inviting, location, time (which dictates refreshments)... your theme should be something fun for everyone and fit in your location.

I'm afraid, I'm not going to offer theme suggestions because it's your party. Once you choose a theme, I'd be more than happy to help you with ideas.

I'm going to be 49 this July, and I plan to do exactly the same thing. I am going to have plenty of scary movies on hand, carve a bunch of Jack O'Lanterns, and if I can swing it, some yard decorations to greet the ToTers. Additionaly, I plan to go to at least two haunted attractions during the month of October, and weather permitting ride my motorcycle to them, and as part of my Halloween tradition, go for my midnight ride on Halloween night.

Finaly, I do plan to "Trick or Treat" myself to SOMETHING this October no later then the day before Halloween. Maybe it will be a car, maybe it will be a new motorcycle, or most likely a new video camera. But I am going to treat myself to somethign.

Take a wander through my site. I've been hosting horroween gatherings for years and you may see something that you could for your ghosting.

Make sure to create a halloween environment. Creepy, old, dusty. Use candle lighting or dim lights. Set the tone with music by Nox Arcana for the first hour or so. Follow up with whatever your crowd likes-with a few creepy tunes mixed in. And if you can, a bon fire outside is a must.
