Bloody Halloween Party Ideas

Blood is the perfect Halloween party theme. There are so many great bloody Halloween props and bloody Halloween masks out there for it, you are almost assured success! From the Bloody Banquet party invitations to the blood themed drinks, this Halloween party is one that your guests will never forget.

Bloody Banquet Halloween Invitations

We created a spooky Bloody Banquet theme invitation that is sure to impress your guests. There is also a large selection of Halloween invitations to choose from, so go with whatever strikes your fancy.

If you want to be creative and make your own invitation stick with the blood theme. Print your party information on off-white or flesh colored paper. You can layer it on a piece of black or red cardstock to give it a more finished look. Buy some first aid gauze and splatter it with red paint. Let it dry completely and wrap the invites in the gauze. Mail the invite in a padded envelope.

You can also mail your invitation in a box with some black paper shreddz and a bloody finger. Tie a white string around the finger and attach a tag the reads "Don't forget to RSVP".

bloody Halloween props, Party Decorations and Party Supplies

Start by welcoming your guests with bloody decorations around your entryway. A hanging skulls and a bloody weapon garland will give everyone chills.

If you are having a party were many people will not know each other, purchase some of those "Hello my name is" name tags for guests to fill out. Have them add a line that includes their blood type and next of kin, just in case something befalls them at the party :)

When you decorate the room, start with the background decorations and then add some great props to take it over the top. Here are a few that we think are perfect for setting your bloody stage -
Complement all these great decorations with low lighting and candles.
 
Now that you have the basic decorations taken care of you can start to add in some gory props to really take the party to the next level -
  • Body Parts Cutouts - Well, where is all the blood coming from anyway? Scatter these gruesome pieces and parts around and let your guests fill in the blanks.
  • Bloody Weapon Cutouts - An assortment of deadly decorations will ratchet up the threat level...
  • Bloody Eye Sack - Gross beyond words.
Combine these cringe-worthy decorations with some blood for a great effect. Because what would a blood theme party be without blood? You can use blood gel for your costume or stage blood around the room. Or make your own -
 
Fake Blood
  • 3 parts clear corn syrup
  • 1 part water
  • Corn starch or chocolate syrup for thickening
  • Red and blue food coloring
Combine corn syrup and water. Add the red food coloring and mix. Add a small amount of blue food coloring to achieve a more realistic shade. Now add the corn starch or chocolate syrup and mix until you get the desired thickness. If you use cornstarch you may have to strain it to remove any lumps. Chocolate syrup will make the "blood" a realistic red/brown color. Refrigerate until you're ready to use, and use within 2-3 days of mixing. Be aware that the food coloring in this recipe may temporarily stain skin and will permanently stain clothes.

So now the rooms are perfectly frightful, it's time to move of to setting out the repugnant buffet...

Bloody Banquet Table Decorations and Menu
I love the idea of decorating the buffet and table areas like a grisly butcher shop. A zombie scene behind or above the food is a great touch. Now just scatter a few plastic body parts around the table and everyone will get the idea.
    For dinner serve a variety of meat such as pulled pork, sausage and beef brisket. Let everyone wonder what it really is! Check out this really great site that shows you how to do a great "cannibal" themed dinner.  You can also serve a fun blood themed drink as well -
     
    Bloody Mary
    serves 1
    • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
    • 1/2 cup tomato juice
    • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
    • Worcestershire sauce, to taste
    • Tabasco to taste
    • Salt and pepper
    • 1 celery stick (for garnish)
    In a cocktail shaker, add vodka, tomato juice, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, ice and salt and pepper to taste. Shake well, then strain into a tall glass filled with ice cubes. Garnish with celery.

    It's a shocking spread, everyone will agree!

    Bloody Banquet Party Games
    I think having a horror movie screening is a great idea. Whether you go current or classic, everyone will love a good scare! Here are a few of my favorites -
    • Dracula - with the great Bela Lugosi, classic
    • Halloween - the original slasher flick
    • Psycho - a great Hitchcock classic
    • The Addams Family - a fun and not too scary choice
    • The Nightmare on Elm Street - Freddy Krueger is the star in this 80's slicer-dicer
    • Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The original 1974 classic or the 2003 remake are both great
    • Scream - Part horror, part teen-flick and part comedy, but always a great scare
    • Saw - a gory Halloween tradition with several sequels
    • Carrie - a classic as far as we're concerned
    No Halloween party is complete without a costume contest! Let your guests know that there will be a contest on the invite and prepared to be wowed. Give a fun Halloween trophy to the winner.
