10 Cool Ideas for Halloween Parties


Things That Go Bump in the Night

A CBS News poll revealed that 48 percent of Americans believe ghosts exist, and about 22 percent have seen a ghost in some form. Invite your ghoulfriends -- believers or not -- to a paranormal party and edge that percentage a little higher.

Set the mood with plenty of candles and decorate with gauzy, ethereal materials and fabrics. Hire a psychic medium, tarot-card reader or palm reader for your guests, and conduct a séance before the evening's over. Trying to stick to a budget? Break out the Ouija board and tarot cards yourselves.
