Another novel idea is a Dead Rock Star theme. All in attendance should dress as their favorite – dead – rock star. The décor can again revolve around posters, this time of rock stars. But add that spooky twist by throwing in some more ghoulish décor.
Perhaps some spiders crawling across Elvis’s face, or cobwebs wrapped around a life-size cutout of Jimmy Hendrix. And don’t forget tombstones!
The entertainment is obvious for this one: play the music of the rock-stars in attendance. You can have a karaoke or lip-syncing contest with each of the attendees performing as the star they came dressed as.
Again, the best performers can be presented with gift baskets containing, among other things, cd’s featuring the music of your favorite dead rock stars.
Even just a basic Halloween theme is a great idea. The decorations are pretty much a no-brainer for this one: lots of cobwebs, spiders, skeletons and tombstones. Throw in some witches and vampires and you’re done.
Food can be just about anything, but to keep it simple, consider finger foods. Numerous party games can be found in books at your public library, or through an Internet search. Costumes can be whatever the attendees desire; it’s always fun to see who shows up as what.
