Pumpkin Spice Party

Embrace your basic bitch-ness and indulge in some pumpkin spice products. There’s pumpkin spice cider, cake, cookies, Pop tarts–pretty much a whole pantry! Give everyone a shopping list beforehand and tell them to pick out a few treats to try. You can rate your favorites and take your friends’ advice for which products to buy on your next trip to the grocery store.

Drunk Ghost Stories

You’ll have a memorable 2020 Halloween when you and your friends do a ghost story version of Drunk History. Look up creepy tales and practice your performance beforehand. For the first 30 minutes of the party have guests take a few shots or sip a strong drink. Then have everyone attempt to explain their ghost story in the scariest way. Have your camera ready because these will be unforgettably hilarious.

Pumpkin Carving Contest

Do a traditional Halloween activity by carving pumpkins during your virtual Halloween party. Have everyone log in armed with a small pumpkin. You can all go by a theme, or have everyone come up with their own unique design. Winners get a prize!

Zoom Background Decorating

If you’re an artsy group, you and your friends can make your on Zoom backgrounds. Draw them out on paper, paint them on canvas or design them on the computer. After an hour of creativity, everyone can take a photo of their design and show off their work by making it their background!

Autumn Happy Hour

If you have a moderate budget for your pandemic Halloween party, consider hiring a psychic! Plenty of psychics are working from home doing virtual readings through Zoom. Hire one to log into your party and see if they can tell the future of your guests. Everyone will be excited to learn something about their fortune during the spooky gathering.

Halloween Dessert Decorating

Sweet treats aren’t just for the kids. Your virtual Halloween party will be a hit when you and your friends have a cookie or cupcake decorating contest. Tell everyone to buy (or make) a batch of plain desserts. They can then add icing, candy corn, Twizzlers, or any other Halloween-friendly candy to make tasty designs. If you want to take it the extra step, do a contactless delivery of the desserts you made to your friends for a trick-or-treat alternative!
