With the global pandemic playing tricks on our normal Halloween plans, it’s time to get a little creative this year. Even if trick-or-treating is canceled and you can’t gather around a cauldron of witches’ brew with your friends, it doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate in style. We’re here to tell you how to add some magic to this spooky season with a fun virtual party.
With festive decorations like an easy Halloween bouquet delivery, spooktacular games, and delightful treats, Halloween 2020 will be one to remember. Just pick one of our ideas below, and get ready for a virtual party that will make the ghouls go wild.
A Mysterious Murder
If you can’t get enough of true crime shows, try hosting a murder of your own (we promise it will only bring screams of delight). What’s even better is that you and your friends can try to solve this mystery from the comfort of your own homes.
Choose a Theme
With Zoom murder mystery parties, getting started couldn’t be easier. All you have to do is pick a theme, such as Vampire Family or Night at the Masquerade, and roll with it.
After you’ve settled on a theme, send out invitations so guests know who they’ll be portraying — make sure to give them enough time to craft their costumes! Let’s be real, dressing up is one of the best parts of Halloween.
Set the Stage
While your friends can purchase decorations for their own houses, if you want to step up your hosting a bit, send some themed items to each guest. Dressing up as vampires? Send some fangs. Spending a night at the ball? Order some gorgeous flowers to make everyone feel like a glamorous VIP.
Mix Up Some Drinks
With a global pandemic and a murderer on the loose, everyone can benefit from grabbing a drink and kicking back. We suggest apple cider (with or without a touch of whiskey), pumpkin beers, or a spiced witches’ brew.
A Spooktacular Harvest
If your friend group isn’t into the spooky side of Halloween, you can still celebrate the holiday with a harvest party. Pumpkins and fall flowers replace ghosts and monsters for a celebration that focuses on the natural delights of the season.
Take a Note from Nature
When it comes time to decorate, you don’t have to look any further than the world around you. Order some fall flowers such as bronze mums, yellow goldenrod, and orange daisies to bring the warm autumn colors inside.
Along with our gorgeous Bouqs, you can also dress up your home with funky gourds, corn stalks, and brightly colored berries.
Cook up the Harvest
As the weather cools down, it’s easy to warm up in the kitchen as harvests of pumpkins, sweet potatoes, and apples appear. Utilize the season’s natural treats by cooking up a warming sweet potato ginger soup.
Even if guests are in different kitchens, they can create the same recipe and sit down to virtually enjoy their finished soup together. After months of eating with the people in your household, it’s nice to share a meal with friends.
Create a Festive Wreath
While the sweet potatoes bake, it’s time to get crafty. Grab old Bouqs, grapevine wreaths, and some floral wire to create dried floral wreaths. When the party’s over, these wreaths will serve as a reminder of good times with friends.
A Classic Halloween
Remember when you spent Halloween carving pumpkins and ringing doorbells for candy? Take a cue from your childhood to host a party that reminds us of the pleasures of simpler times.
Whether you aim for a goofy face or Picaso level pumpkin art, carving pumpkins is always fun. Add in a screen full of your best pals, and it’s bound to be an hour full of laughs.
When you’re working on your pumpkin masterpieces, set the mood with a scary movie like Children of the Corn or Nightmare on Elm Street. If not everyone is a fan of frightening films, opt for a fun Halloween classic like Hocus Pocus or Ghostbusters.
One of the best parts of halloween is the ability to take on another persona, whether that’s a superhero, movie character, or your favorite animal. What makes dressing up even more fun is making a contest out of it! You can even include multiple awards such as funniest and most original.
Of course, you’ll have to let your guests know that there will be a costume contest so they can all put their creative skills to work.
During the party, give everyone time to admire the works of art then have each person vote on their favorite costume. Once the votes are tallied, make sure the winners receive stellar prizes (we suggest Bouqs to grace their Thanksgiving tables).
Fun with Kids
If you’re virtually celebrating Halloween with some little ones, we have you covered. And don’t worry, we won’t tell if you end up having just as much fun as the toddlers.
To get your bodies moving and burn off some of that candy-fueled energy, play a halloween addition of charades. Take turns drawing clues such as ghost, haunted house, and candy corn from a virtual hat. As one person acts these words out, everyone else guesses.
Sure, halloween is for treats. But why settle on plain candy bars? Instead, create some of these festive snacks that both adults and kids alike will go wild for.
Grab some round fudge cookies, add a generous dollop of orange icing, and top with a Hershey kiss. Viola! A sweet witch’s hat.
Take two apple slices and smear the inside of each slice with peanut butter. Using the peanut butter as glue, add 5-6 mini marshmallows between the two slices to create some spooky teeth.
