Here comes the centerpiece of the whole decoration. You can order a cake that resembles the brain. You can ask the cake decorator to use the red paste that looks like the blood coming out of the head (Refer to the picture given above).

We talked about the Zombie Party Halloween Theme then we moved to the Friends Halloween Party theme. How can I forget about the TVD (The Vampire Diary Fans)? I know you can’t groom your friends to look like Damon Salvator but at least you can try to organize a party with the vampires all around.

What can be more spooky than the vampires moving all around your house?

Decorate your house in the dark shade of night, you can draw the spider cuts from the black chart paper and paste them on the walls just like the ones shown in the picture above. Order a Halloween special cake that has the spider (Edible spider made of bread) on it. 

Coming to the costumes you can wear a long black coat with triangular collars. You can buy two artificial teeth and use the edible red paint to show the blood coming out of your mouth. 

You can’t look as smashing as the Salvator brothers, but you can always try!
