How to Throw A Tech-Savvy Halloween Party

October 24, 2017

Halloween is right around the corner, and although trick-or-treating is apparently only for kids, adults can make Halloween  costumes and treats fun and spooky too. Want to throw a Halloween party that everyone’s dying to hashtag? Here’s how to throw a tech-savvy gathering that all of your friends and family will enjoy.

1. Crowdsource Your Theme

Social media is useful even before your guests walk through the door. Create a Twitter Poll and ask your followers in advance to help select the party theme. Do they want something scary like a cemetery or asylum or maybe a creepy carnival? Would they rather have gory cocktails or fall cider? Let the crowd decide.

2. Create a Spooky Hashtag

Every tech-savvy Halloween party needs a spooky hashtag. Once you have your theme, pick a hashtag that’s fun, easy to remember and of course, memorable!

3. Find Creepy Snacks on Pinterest

Halloween party food isn’t just candy corn and chocolates. Create a truly terrifying menu, courtesy of the genius contributors on Pinterest. From spicy “snake” bread sticks and spiderweb taco dip to mummy pumpkin cookies, there’s no shortage of delicious ideas that guests will want to Instagram all night. Here’s some inspiration from the Prudent Penny Pincher.

4. Curate a Halloween Hits Playlist

Get everyone to the dance floor with a Halloween hits playlist. Streaming services like Spotify have pre-programmed playlists for the holiday, but it’s just as easy to create your own. Don’t forget to add Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and of course, Bobby Pickett’s “Monster Mash.”

5. Screen Your Favorite Halloween Movies

Cox has a LOT of Halloween movies On Demand in October. From “Ouija: Origin of Evil” to “The Belko Experiment” and “Alien: Covenant,” turn on your TV and screen a spooky movie to complement your party. No worries if you don’t have a screening room. A white sheet or blank wall and a projector make for an easy screening set-up.
