There is something delicious and exciting about decorating a table with severed body parts, isn’t there? For a mad scientist table, consider some syringes, chemistry beakers, a skull and a rat for starters. Glow sticks will be a major asset in this gruesome tablescape!

There are some absolutely disgusting looking food ideas out there that would be perfect for a mad scientist party. Pretty much anything made to look like bloody body parts is a safe bet. Other options include anything resembling insects or biohazard experiments gone wrong.

Party Favors


Who doesn’t like a collection of eyeballs, witches fingers and rubber bats? For Mad Scientist parties you can make your favors science themed, and giving slime is usually the norm. Consider putting a collection of spooky appendages in a clear plastic paint can favor and add a couple red rock candy sticks to complete the look.




Don’t forget about your costumes! For kids you could pain a men’s white pocket t-shirt or order a costume to wear and have everything they need to look the part!
