In my opinion, it's never too early for Halloween. I am a Halloween junkie. It's my favorite holiday of the year. What is more fun than eating tons of candy, carving pumpkins, dressing up as whoever you want to be and best of all, having a Halloween party?
Halloween is about three months away and as a result, I've compiled together a "vintage-inspired" Halloween party. From decorations to desserts, this blast from the past party is sure to bring lots of spooky fun.

A great dessert to include in your vintage-inspired Halloween party could be cake pops! There are lots of options for these handy little munchies-- make them into zombies, pumpkins, bats, eyeballs, etc. Buy them online on etsy or make your own.

Halloween party decorations don't have to be just black and orange. Add some purple, teal or lime green for an extra retro kick! Atmosphere is everything if you're looking to create a "spooky" haunted house feeling. Don't forget the music & sound effects...just make sure to hide the boombox from guests.

A great activity for your vintage Halloween party might include playing an old-fashioned "Mystery game". These are great ice breaker games for guests who might not know many people and can provide many laughs & memories. Even better-- provide "props" for your guests so they can become more in character (think monocle, feather boa, 1950s hat, lots of jewelry, mens ties, etc.)
