Last Minute Halloween Party Ideas

Do you like Halloween parties?  Our neighborhood is always buzzing on Halloween am I am really glad that it lands on a Friday this year. Have you thought about having a little Halloween party for kids and grownups? Even though Halloween is in a couple of days, I have a few suggestions of last minute Halloween party ideas, that require just a tiny bit of effort, and not a lot of time, if you dare…

Simple Decor Ideas

Pick up some styrofoam from pumpkins at the dollar store.


Paint them with spray paint or decorate them with Sharpie markers like I did here.

You can also do a 5 minute decoration for your entry. Decorate your front door with a monster to welcome guests. You can make a real simple decoration with some paper plates. Draw big eyes on two paper plates,


and decorative tape and make a monster door.


And don’t forget those bottle printables from last week. You can find them here.


Simple Party Activities

Grab some Halloween Photo Booth props from One Creative Mommy – she has a free printable for you.
Have a pumpkin decorating contest – one for kids and another for adults
Have a Horror Movie Trivia Contest for the adults while the kids trick or treat
Have a costume contest -with 2 prizes, one for adults, another for kids. Have a basket to collect ballots.

  1. Looks like you are ready for Halloween. How fun. I love it too and look forward to the Trick or Treaters coming.

  2. Love the monster door idea! So simple. And the pumpkins are wonderful too. I love pumpkins because you don’t have to spend a lot to get that bright orange, telltale pumpkin look.. without having to buy actual pumpkins.
