10 Cool Ideas for Halloween Parties

Gothic

Host a gothic ball this Halloween -- it might be gothic romance or gothic horror but either way it's dark-themed. Think blacks, reds and purples when decorating: candles, dried red roses, black lights and lush fabrics are good choices.

Encourage guests to be dark and beautiful, themselves. Blacks, greys and reds along with pale faces and dark undereye circles are de rigueur among the gothic crowd -- draw inspiration from the Addams family, Lily Munster, Dracula or characters from the "Twilight" book and movies.
