You will also want to think about how scary you would like your decorations to be. If you're opening up your Halloween party to include children then you may want to keep the scariness down to a minimum. You don't want to give your guest's children nightmares for a week after the actual party. When expecting kids, stick more to decorations and accessories that still have elements of the classic Halloween themes, but that are more on the humorous or light hearted side and are age appropriate for your guests.
If you're going to take the themed route then you obviously need to find Halloween decorations that will suit both your purpose and the party theme. Keep your mind wide open when shopping for decorations to match with a particular theme. If you think of many different aspects of the same theme, you may come up with some ideas that are out of the ordinary. Thinking out of the box is sure to find you some treasures and this is the sort of thing that will really make your parties stand out above all others.
Paper mache ghosts - create ghosts out of paper mache to hang from doorways, curtain rods and light fixtures. This is also a great activity for the kids as they will love to get their hands messy creating these great decorations. Paper bats - Cut out bat shapes from black construction paper and hang from the ceiling or even ceiling fan with dental floss. When you turn the fan on it will give the appearance that bats are flying around the room certain to freak some people out. Fake spiders - People of all ages are frightened of spiders which make these a great Halloween decoration. Go to your local dollar store and pick up a ton of these plastic, crawly, creatures and litter them around your house.
