What’s the Project? This Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween party is a fun and creative way to have a fun night with your girlfriends in October. Fun invitations, treats, games, and decorations all themed around a Ghoul’s night out!
There’s not much better than sitting around with a bunch of your closest girlfriends, eating fun treats, playing games, and laughing. And laughing and laughing and laughing. (And avoiding going home to face real life and your kids’ bedtimes.)
You don’t have to throw a big party in order to spend time with your friends, but if you want to make a night with the ladies extra special, this Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween party is a super fun way to celebrate.
This party looks adorable but it wasn’t too hard to pull off and it was a huge success with my friends and probably something I will continue year after year.
How can you beat cute little ghosts with pink bows anyway? So cute and the party itself was so much fun!
Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween Party Ideas:
I’m going to admit that I knew I wanted to throw a Halloween party for some of my friends this year so I designed cute invitations, picked 10 friends to invite, and put them in the mail.
And then I went out of town for a week.
I hadn’t planned any of the details of the party yet other than the Ghoul’s Night Out theme, so when I got back in town and had just three days to plan the party, I knew I had to hit it hard. But it came together so easily and turned out better than I dreamed. You can totally do this fun party! It’s not hard!
Halloween Party Invitations:
Here’s a look at the super cute invitations I sent out.
You can customize these for your party. To do this, click on the image below and save it to your computer, then personalize it. If you need help on how to do that, I will walk you through it here.
Once I started actually planning, I had a lot of fun with the details. Here’s a look at some of the fun Halloween party ideas for you.
Ghoul’s Night Out Treats:
I served dinner at my party (bought it at Olive Garden because I didn’t want to cook). But then I made some fun little treats to go with it.
Everything for the party was black, silver and pink, so all the little treats had pink bows or pink accents.
I served everything on pink plates and had silver napkins and cups. The drinks were in a cauldron filled with ice.
I started with little ghost cupcakes and added pink bows to them. So cute!
How could you resist those cute faces?
I think this next treat might have turned out even cuter…
I used clear plastic cups and cut little ghost faces out with my Cricut (you could also draw them with a black marker, added a cute pink bow again, and filled them up with coconut muddy buddies.
And finally, I made chocolate cookies and added pink M&Ms to them! And served them in a cute witch’s cauldron:
Here’s a recipe for these:
Ghoul's Night Out Halloween Party
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 sticks butter softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs beaten
- 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- Pink M&Ms about 1/3 pound
- Combine all ingredients and mix till dough forms.
- Roll into balls about 1 inch in size.
- Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.
Ghoul Talk Halloween Party Game:
Other than eating and chatting, I had planned a couple of games. The first game turned out to be so much fun that we just played it the whole night.
Here’s how to play.
Before the party cut a bunch of strips of paper and make sure you have a pen or pencil for each player.
On some of the strips of paper, write questions for the players to answer. (List of question ideas below). Put them all in a basket.
One player draws a question from the basket and reads in aloud. For example, “If I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life it would be…”
She then writes her answer on a blank strip of paper. Everyone else in the room writes an answer FOR HER on their strip of paper, trying to determine what answer she will write.
All of the strips are collected and the player reads all of them aloud. (So she will be reading each person’s plus her own, but not indicating who wrote which one.)
After all have been read aloud, each player in the room must guess which is the correct answer (the one the main player wrote). Go in a circle clockwise as players make their guesses.
The main player then reveals the correct answer.
One point is scored if a player happened to write the correct answer (for example, if the main player wrote chocolate as her answer and another player wrote that as well, she scores a point.)
One point is also scored if a player guesses the correct answer from the possibilities read aloud.
After finishing the guessing and revealing the correct answer and totaling points for that round, the next person in the circle becomes the main player and reads a question aloud and everyone answers for her.
Continue until each player has had one turn. You can go around as many times as you would like.

We had a lot of fun with that game and laughed a lot! I had prizes for the top winners after points were totaled.
Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween Party Favors:
And finally, I wanted to send my guests how with something fun, so I made little party favors. Again I went with the cute ghost face and a pink bow on these cute little favor boxes. They were each filled with a lotion, a lip balm, and candy.
So cute and fun! I loved throwing this party so much! And hope you will too!
Have the best time every throwing this Ghoul’s Night Out Halloween party!

This sounds like an adorable theme to a party! The game you mentioned sounds similar to Apples to Apples, but I love the spin! 🙂 Due to Corona Virus in my area this year, there unfortunately won’t be any Halloween parties but I will keep this one tucked away til we can do it or maybe do this with my 2 daughters. I enjoy your blog and the information you share.

I know-I thought the same about Coronavirus and no parties this year. 🙁 Hopefully next year.
