Party Favor and Game

One year I collected pictures from each guest dressed up for Halloween as kids. I framed it next to their partner and it became a party favor. However, this was not just a cute gift, we played “Guess Who?” with the pictures. As everyone arrived at the party, they guessed who each person was. Whoever got the most correct won a prize. It was so fun to see our friends as kids!

Halloween Photobooth

Having a backdrop for a photobooth is such a fun way to make your memories a keepsake! As a photographer here are some tips for doing a photobooth.

  • Try not to make the backdrop too colorful, you want the costumes to be the focal point.
  • Try and get the photos back to the couple as soon as you can.
  • Take pictures at the beginning of the party, that way the costumes are fresh and potentially not ruined after games.

Should I provide food and drinks, or should it be a potluck-style party?

Party Games

These games are great because they can be done both inside or outside, depending on the weather.

  • Donuts Eating Contest: This rivals the classic bobbing for apples. Attach hanging donuts, and contestants must finish the donuts without the use of their hands.
  • Eyeballs On A Spoon: Take a ping-pong ball and turn it into an “eyeball” for spooky effect. Split the group into teams, and contestants must carry the ping-pong ball, on a plastic spoon around an obstacle course. The trick is participants must use their mouth to transport the spoon. Whichever team finishes first wins.
  • Ghost Passing: Make a paper ghost and split the group into teams. Participants must use a straw in their mouth to transport the ghost through all the teammates.
  • Piñata: Piñatas are classic and can be used for any party.
  • Three-Legged Race: This is great for a couple’s party and it tests the teamwork of the couple. All you need is something to tie one of each couple’s legs together. Then line teams up and have them race to a certain point.
  • Bobbing For Apples: An age-old classic. Perfect for plenty of laughs and a fun time.
  • Costume Contest: Have guests anonymously vote on which couple had the best costume.
  • Candy Jar: Have a jar of candy and each guest can guess how many candies are in the jar. Closest number takes the whole jar!

A couples Halloween party is a fantastic way to celebrate the spooky season and create lasting memories with your partner and friends.
