These can be fun, but they are basically a fancy dress-up party. You need to make sure your guests want to go all out for costumes, or it might not be the hit you hoped for.

If you have a small, close-knit group, then consider coying up with some popcorn as you journey through the world of silver screen horror. From classics to modern spine-chillers, the suspense is palpable!
The downside to this is that it’s hard to socialize while watching a screen.
Potion Making (Cocktail Mixing)
Brew your own concoctions with a dash of magic and mystery. If no one has ever called your cocktail a magic potion, then there’s definitely room to learn some new skills!

This theme is always a hit among guests because the costumes are fun and easy to put together, and they make for some great photos. Plus, it’s easy to get into character when you enter the mysterious door of a speakeasy, and it’s not surprising that the criminal activities get out of hand.

Roll the dice by hosting Murder in Sin City.
