Just because 2020 is the year of social distancing doesn’t mean your Halloween can’t be a fun time. Here are four ways to make your Zoom Halloween party a success.
Set The Mood
Yes, a virtual Halloween party just isn’t the same, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it. Leading up to the event, you can do things like sending out a specific drink recipe, so everyone enjoys the same beverage on the big day. You can even take it up a notch by mailing Zoom invites or gift bags and having the ingredients already it so your guests are all set-up to be mixologists from home. For Halloween drink recipes or ideas, watch the videos below.
This Craft Mom has another great idea of sending your guests or your kid’s friends virtual Halloween party kits to get everyone excited for the big night. They can include things like Halloween plates and napkins, candy, or specialty food.
Have A Theme
A great way to be cohesive with your friends and family is to have a set theme for the party. Maybe everyone can jump on the call in an ugly Halloween sweater, or everyone can all wear a costume from a Marvel Comics movie, etc. Or as Stylecaster points out, everyone can all make DIY masks during the call. Just find a way to make it feel like everyone is together, although it’s only virtually.
Get Your Zoom Background Coordinated With You Costume
Its Halloween, which is a great time to go all out with a fancy background. Best Products has some great ideas for Zoom backgrounds that you can use that tie in with actual costumes too. Some include being a cast member in Home Alone, being a sportscaster, or being Jim from The Office.
Have the Activities Prepared
Take the party up a notch by having the activities ready to go once your group logs in. One suggestion Lands’ End has is having virtual group games ready to go. Or you can sign up for a Murder Mystery Zoom Party, where a professional actor will host.
Another great option that Land’s End suggests is having a movie night. Figure out the movie beforehand so that everyone is ready to participate. Start the movie at the same time and watch it together.
