For food, you can serve brain cupcakes, eyeball lollies, and even burgers which can be served rare, medium-rare or well-done. Drinks can consist of a red punch or rd wine that resembles blood. Meanwhile, you can adorn your house with Halloween props like zombie body parts and play the soundtrack of The Walking Dead in the background.- Advertisement -

You can decorate your house with posters from famous suspense thrillers like Nightmare on Elm Street, Frankenstein, It, Friday the 13th, Jeepers Creepers, and many more. Beverages can be served using glasses shaped like Frankenstein’s head while paper plates with spider webs can also be used for serving food.

Vampire Halloween Party
Who can forget vampires during Halloween? Young and old alike love dressing up like blood-sucking people long before the Twilight stars rose to fame.

Have lots of red wine in champagne glasses, too!
