Decorations for a Vampire Theme Halloween Party
Are you planning to host a Halloween party this year? If you like the idea of coming up with an angle that's more specific than a general Halloween theme, consider throwing a vampire bash.
With so many popular movies and television shows featuring vampires, this type of theme is sure to be a big hit with your guests!
If you decide to host a vampire theme party this Halloween, you'll want to be sure to outfit your home with appropriate decorations for the occasions. There are many options to decorate your home for a Halloween vampire bash.
Vampire Theme Party Decoration Ideas
Whether you're hosting a family friendly event or a grown-ups only evening, there are plenty of simple – and affordable – decorating ideas that you can use. A few options to consider include:
Instead of using flowers as a centerpiece for the refreshment table, consider something much more ghoulish for a vampire theme party.
For example, consider placing a gothic vampire head prop in the middle of the table. Alternately, consider placing a novelty vampire coffin in the table's focal position.
Either item can serve double duty as an outdoor Halloween decorating during the weeks leading up to October 31.
Make sure to welcome your guests to the event properly by hanging a vampire welcome banner on the front door of your home.
To further outfit the outdoor of your home for the party, consider placing a few hanging bats in strategic locations near the entrance or outdoor areas that will be used during the event.
Consider letting your guests choose between fake vampire fangs or a simple necklace made from strands of leather that have been adorned with a garlic bulb.
Providing both vampire accessories and anti-vampire protection devices as party favors can be a great way to spur fun banter and conversation among the guests!
Novelty Party Lights
Give your home a ghoulish, vampire theme glow by hanging colorful bat novelty lights around windows and doorways in the areas of your home where guests will gather during the party.
Consider adorning the walls of your home with movie posters from your all-time favorite vampire flicks.
Posters are available from classic films, such as Mark of the Vampire starring Lionel Barrymore, as well as from more recent movies, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer starring Kristy Swanson and Luke Perry and Interview with the Vampire, starring Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt.
