4 frighteningly fun ideas for Chicago families to try this Halloween

As a busy mom, I sometimes want the Pinterest Halloween Party results, without all the steps that it takes to get there. I recently had the opportunity to chat behind the scenes with Party City and while perusing their website, I came across some great options to bring your Pinterest Halloween party to life. One of my favorite elements of their site is how they display a particular look and then give you a direct link to purchasing those items. Pinterest-style pictures with an immediate way to recreate it. Sign me up!

Killer Zombie Apocalypse Party

Think Breaking Bad meets Walking Dead. My nephews and hubby would love a party like this and recreating some of these elements is relatively simple when using the base decorations from Party City.

Classroom Party

Need to spooky without all the scary? These ideas for hosting a great classroom party will make you a hit. I help plan my sons’ parties yearly and I love the idea that I can get everything I need in one place.

Outdoor Fun

We love the harvest season and being able to keep decorations out that work for both Halloween and Thanksgiving is a huge plus for us. These decorations work double duty and can easily kick off your fall season without seeming out of sorts.

Glow Stick Bonanza

One of my absolute favorite ideas is this glow stick concept of making the room dark, utilizing a black light and putting glow sticks all around to make the room eerily bright. This would work well during a movie night, sleepover or just heading outside. I also love using some of these elements as party favors in party gift bags.

What are the ways you help to make your Halloween party a success or more Pinterest worthy? Do you find yourself shopping for most of the elements or creating them by hand yourself? For even more great ideas, check out our growing list of ideas on our Pinterest boards.
