Apple bobbing also known as bobbing for apples is another interesting game played during Halloween and the most loved of all games. This is played by filling a tub or a large basin with water and putting apples in the water. Because apples are less dense than water, they float at the surface. Players then try to catch them with their teeth.

Ghosts & Goosebumps– a perfect theme for a Halloween night right at home. So here are a few quick tricks to throw a memorable Halloween Party:

An awesome Halloween party requires super great decorations at home that people remember for life. Start decorating the outside of your home by setting up spooky Halloween scenes. The spookier the better. The easiest way is to begin by creating pumpkin lanterns – nothing so traditional and aesthetic & shockingly beautiful. Watch this video to know how to make pumpkin lanterns.

Another easy way to decorate your home is with those very spiders you have been chasing and exterminating away! Well, not with real spiders but fakes spiders & bats that you may hang on fishing nets that look like cob webs.

Halloween Party Music: King of pop Michael Jackson’s Thriller is ageless music and a cult in itself, & a perfect match for every Halloween party for generations to come. And, choose songs like Santana’s Black Magic Women, Mitch Ryder’s Devil with a blue dress on, Sympathy for the devil by Rolling Stones, Highway to Hell by AC/DC or Witchy Woman by the Eagles.

If you have a tree in your garden or backyard, the best thing to do is turn your tree into a creepy haunted one! But do remember not to harm the tree in any way, as the best way to achieve this look is to use temporary glue for the mask and creepy hands!
