Bonus Ideas for Your Halloween Event


A costume contest is a welcomed addition to any Halloween office activity. Whether you provide a theme or leave it open to your employees is up to you.


Another fun idea is to transform your break room (or whole office) into a haunted house with fake spider webs, plastic pumpkins and spooky decorations. Your employees will LOVE it!


It's a big one, so we don't mind saying twice…every office event needs food and drinks. Even if it's not at the center of your Halloween activities, your employees will 100% appreciate it. Anything pumpkin spice is always a win!

Don't Forget Your Remote Workers!

Remember to include your remote employees just as much as your in-office staff. Every Halloween party idea above is available virtually, and we have food and drink baskets your party planner can assist with too.
