With Halloween right around the corner, you’re probably considering throwing a party. If you’re really bold, you might even be thinking about turning your home into a haunted house for your friends to enjoy. What might seem like a hefty task can easily be tackled with four simple steps from Let’s Party.
Here are four simple steps to assist you in haunting your house:
- Consider curb appeal
Just as you would assess your home from the street before you list it for sale, except here you should look for opportunities right out the gate to scare your party guests. Consider lighted trees to create a spooky forest and help light the pathway to your haunted house. Or go with something less subtle and plant a vampire skydancer right by your front door. Both efforts are sure to let your guests know they’re in for a thrill.
- Set the mood at the door
Just as your guests enter the door, be sure to set the stage in a way that tests a variety of their senses. Stream creepy Halloween sounds to a portable speaker hidden in the corner of the foyer or set up a fog machine just inside the door to create an eerie hazy environment.
- Create the scene
Let your imagination unfold as you decorate the rooms of your house in a way that’s sure to send a chill up your guests’ spines. Consider using professional Halloween decorations and props – like zombies, skeleton, or vampires – to up your game to the next level.
- Get into it
Throw on your scariest costume or mask and join in on the fun of scaring your party guests as they walk through your haunted house.
See? It’s simple. You’ve got this. You’ll be on your way to creating your own haunted house in no time.
Still not sure you can pull it all off? No worries. You could always just rent an inflatable haunted house and call it a day.
The choice is yours!
