Hello! I'm so glad there is an entire forum for "crazies" like me that start planning for Halloween early on...since like November 1st!?

So this year will be my first full-blown Halloween bash. I have a small space and most of my friend's are not into Halloween like me, so I'm having trouble deciding what kind of party to throw.

The theme I am toying with is definitely ghosts/haunted house. I am thinking of something along the lines of "true love never dies" So I somehow want to incorporate love and ghost into the them. This is where the struggle starts. What should be my theme be? I don't know if I should even have a theme/costumes guest should adhere to since they are not into it like I am.

As you can see, I'm very confused! Any suggestions for what route I should take and what themes I could use? I'm open to ANYTHING that's haunted house/ghost themed. Thanks!

I would definately tie your theme with the invitations. To me, the invitation sets the mood (and the guest's level of participation).

I've found that you can't really dictate what the guest should wear, but you can decorate your home to give the feel of your theme once they arrive. People love Halloween parties, and those that are really into it, will spend the time/money on a good costume. (My invitations always manage to say that costumes are mandatory). Every year the costumes get better and better.

Don't forget to carry your theme into the guest bathroom....:)
