I've haven't been online in a long long time. I forgot how much I love this forum. (Had health issues) Okay, so I am working on a Theme for next year. Voodoo/swamp theme. (It's too late to do one this year). Please help by giving me ideas. I want ideas on decorations, and I need a list of any words that are voodoo related (that always gives me ideas). I am making voodoo dolls as party favors with a Velcro pouch that contains a surprise and I am making my own game and game board for the party. So the words will help with the game board and the game cards.

Thanks for any help you can give!

Hands of glory, shrunken heads, snakes. Maybe an alligator. Potions and powders. A voodoo queen!

Whenever voodoo comes to mind, I think of New Orleans and their graveyards.

Honestly I'd run a google search for voodoo supplies and check out some retailers websites. Should find plenty of prop ideas there.

Glad that you are feeling better and back in the haunting spirit.

There have been some very cool swamp/voodoo themes in the past few years. There's one in particular, very recent, that sticks in my mind and I really enjoyed. I see if I can find it. Recall it being decorated inside and out.

In the meantime not sure if you are also looking for outdoor swamp related setups as well, but I loved what SinisterSmitty did with pallets and creating the look of Spanish Moss from their tree.

3pinkpoodles did this fabulous party last year. https://www.halloweenforum.com/party-ideas-experiences-and-recipes/200727-our-voodoo-island-hulaween-success.html You'll get tons of ideas from her party. She always does amazing, detailed set ups. Great party goer costumes too.

Addicted2Boo did a voodoo theme back in 2011 (thank you Addicted2Boo for paying Photobucket so that we can still see your photos!). In particular I loved the big Voodoo doll she did (could see creating a lifesize one and using it for a photo op for party goers) and liked how she created the swampy feeling under their patio area with tree branches and gauze I guess. https://www.halloweenforum.com/party-ideas-experiences-and-recipes/111137-my-voodoo-bayou-2011-party.html

I liked a lot of things Sublime Nightmare did with her bayou theme back in 2012. Her "swamp pool" stuck with me over the years. I have seen a few other people on here who have created "swamp pond water" and they really create a great effect if you have the space, time, etc to create outside your house. https://www.halloweenforum.com/party-ideas-experiences-and-recipes/119893-start-my-voodoo-swamp-decorations.html
