HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I’ve noticed Halloween is a divisive holiday. Some people think it’s the absolute worst. A celebration for children and only children. And then there are people like me. I love Halloween. It’s not just a day, it’s a season! I love the costumes, candy, scary movies, crunchy leaves, bobbing for apples, Halloween cartoon movies, seasonal TV episodes (Bob’s Burgers is the best), I love it all. Except for Monster Mash. I freaking hate the song Monster Mash.
This year twin and I wanted to fully indulge in the Halloween season and host a spooky movie marathon. Ok, initially it was called “Spoopy” movie marathon because of this. But apparently, no one else knows what spoopy is and my guests thought I made a typo on the invitations. So spooky movie marathon it is.
Our movie marathon party was an absolute blast, and here are 4 ways to make your next movie marathon the best one yet:
- Try out some themed snacks and treats. We used Pinterest for our creepy food inspiration. I freaking love how the banana ghosts turned out.
- Grab some cheap decorations. Streamers and balloons go a long way and can be bought at the dollar store.
- Pick your movies based on the streaming services you have. Between Twin and I, we have access to Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime and HBO GO so we were 100% covered on the movie front.
- Blow up an air mattress so it feels like a throwback sleepover. I remember the first time I watched Scream was at a sleepover party when I was 10. I was terrified and electrified at the same time. I’ve been hooked on the horror genre ever since!
