    I was so excited to see this post, because I'm also thinking about next years party...but wondering how you switch things totally up when you have so much $$ invested in the props you have. This year was my 6th party, and each year we added a few things, mostly my decor is spiders, skeletons, more gorey looking stuff, nothing cutesy...so how could I switch it up from a River Road Mortuary theme to something different with the stuff I have? I feel stuck!
    TRADE!!!! i would love to get rid of some of my stuff to change it up a little! I don't have any zombies at all and my theme next year is zombies. So i would love yo trade some of my stuff for other things.

    Trading is a fantastic idea. I wish we could all get together for a giant Halloween swap meet. One potential problem - most Halloween enthusiasts (myself included) are borderline hoarders! Most of us think "hmmm, I'm not using this prop this year but what if I do ______ theme in the future?" I think it would ver very difficult for everyone to let go!

    What will your 2012 party theme be?
    Well there I was, just innocently changing around the drapes in my house, when The Thought popped into my head: "These drapes would be perfect for an EDWARD GOREY-themed Halloween party. I was perusing around the interwebs for costume ideas, and I realllllly love this - LOVE the urn hat!

    Where is the "Love" icon?! The idea is killer, and those costumes are all kinds of fantastic.

    Will you have a curious sofa upholstered in scarlet velvet with nine legs and seven arms (in a windowless room lined with polar bear fur and otherwise empty)?

    It's hard to change themes. I want to do a voodoo/vampire/masquerade theme using what I already have. But I will also use some really cheap ideas from other forum members like staining mason jars, dropping a candle inside and using them as path markers. I think I'll redress my witch with the cauldron in a voodoo priestess costume. I have lotsof skulls already and I can make new potion bottles with voodoo labels. My expense is going to be one of those huge realistic alligators, camo netting and cat tails for a swampy feel. Oh and some shrunkens heads. The swampy voodoo theme will be my outdoor haunt, but once inside it will be Gothic vampire with a hint of New Orleans. Not sure how to do that part yet.
    Forget the ghosts....beware of ME!

    LOL, now you're talkin', talkingcatblues!
    I know for sure I'll have the little girl falling (looks more like 'floating') down the stairs, and lots of urns. Also, since my daughter's a ballet dancer, gotta have Gorey's ballerina; Dracula; crawling ivy; and perhaps even cardboard tombstones on the backs of chairs with guests' epitaphs on them, kinda like this:

    That is going to be a kick-arse party for sure. I used to love the "Mystery" intros with the Gorey drawings - didn't necessarily watch the show, but we always stopped to watch the beginning.

    We are doing Scary Tales...can't wait to get started. Luckily most of my props can b used again this year...starting with the apothecary hutch and potion bottles in the kitchen we will decorate the kitchen similar to last year but adding a cooking pot with Hansel and Gretel and add moss and stuff to the room(I'm not much for the candy covered kitchen idea) then the livingroom will b covered with spiders and webs with Lil Miss Muffet covered with bites and blood. The foyer will b Snow White themed and the yard and porch will b Alice in wonderland with large flowers dripping with blood and a dismembered White Rabbit. Along with a riddle/search scavenger hunt and a "drink me" game...
