Family Friendly halloween party?

1041 Views 8 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  dawnski
Last year, I threw a huge adults only Halloween party (Carnival of Carnage). This year, the kids want in on the Halloween party too ( and to be honest, I'm ready for a more responsible type of party). Last year's decorations included lots of blood and gore. This year, I need to scale it back. Any thoughts on how to still throw a great party and have great decorations while keeping it family friendly (ages newborn-adult)? I want it to be still really cool for adults and not scare the kids. Plus I live in a townhouse now so the scale of my decorations has changed a bit. Any tips would be appreciated !

I've always had all ages and have never held back on my ideas. I don't do big gore but I do include skeletons and monsters. I also had a kid-friendly room available (some string lights and kid Halloween movies) but I've done away with it as we haven't had issues with the kids being too afraid. Some blood is okay, but if you get rid of any graphic gore, you should be fine. Here are some Pinterest boards that might give you some ideas:
