While Halloween is known for the costumes and the trick-or-treating, you can’t forget about the Halloween parties. And no Halloween party is complete without an awesome party theme. While some just set out some Halloween-themed party supplies, you can take your celebration to the next level.
Here at Wholesale Party Supplies, we love a good party theme, no matter what the occasion. Here are some of our favorite party ideas that would make a killer Halloween bash!
1. Goonies Party
HEY YOU GUYS! Here’s a party the full of nostalgia. Relive the adventure of Mikey, Chunk and the whole group of misfits this Halloween with your very own Goonies Party. There are so many treasures and references hidden inside this party idea. We hope it gets you chanting “Goonies never say die” along with us!
2. Stranger Things Party
We hope your walkie talkies are working because your friends aren’t going to want to miss out on this one. Radio them to grab their DnD gear and come over for a Stranger Things Party. Don’t forget the waffles or the Christmas lights. And Will, of course. But make sure you’re careful this Halloween. While we can help inspire a badass party theme, we can’t protect you from Demogorgons or the Upside Down.
3. Edgar Allan Poe Party
No one embraced the essence of the macabre quite like Edgar Allan Poe. And that’s why we felt he deserved a party in his honor. To cheer him up for once. Gather your literary friends and your favorites stories and poems for an Edgar Allan Poe Party inspired by his poem The Raven.
4. Hocus Pocus Party
Since it’s premiere in 1993, Hocus Pocus has been a Halloween staple.

11. Disney Villain Party
