Keep it in the theme, and be tasteful. For a general Halloween scent, you can make a 'potion' inside of a slow cooker. The potion can be made by boiling your favorite fall scents like apple slices, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, orange peels, ground coffee, cinnamon sticks. Use this to scent your home before the party. Keep your eye on your 'witches brew' and add water as needed to prevent from drying out and sticking to your cooker.
Or, you can get an air freshener with your favorite fall scent and spray or use a plug in. Sprinkle fun confetti to hit on the visual and tactile sensations.
Halloween Mystery Parties
Don't make them ask where the bar or buffet tables are - they should be within the line of sight of the entrance. For the love of parties, do not host an event without offering food and drink. Without a selection of food and beverage, your party is doomed. On a budget?
But you must spell that out with your invitation. The invitation should disclose if you are not providing food and drink. Here are the top ten party appetizers for murder mystery parties - click here. But this is a Halloween party, so switch up the traditional food and make it more Halloween-y.

These are always a big hit. I will focus on party hosts with a limited budget here. These are my top five recommendations to transform a space into a Halloween bash without crashing your bank account. When you think you're done - keep going until you've used every fiber in the bag. You'll see the room go from cheery to spooky in about ten minutes. Opt for LED lighting - the flamed candles that look realistic are great. Place them around the room and dim the lights if you can. Make clusters by filling with helium, tying with a ribbon on the knot and fastening to a weight.
The weight can be a soup can or rock covered in tissue paper.
Place the clusters in the corners of the room for a 'let's party' effect. It adds sparkle and flair and gives the guests something to touch - which is one of my hot buttons - hit on all senses when you host a party. However, the entrance is a must and if you have open windows or a patio where guests will be going - set up a fog machine on a timer to add some intrigue and spook to the space. Also, don't put dry ice inside - it can become toxic if your area isn't large enough for the gas CO 2 to disperse.

They drove a bit further, before having consensual sex. Daniel said Chelsea had asked him to choke her, which he did for seconds, but she stopped breathing. He said he carried the body from his car towards a wooded area, where he buried her under tree branches, twigs and leaves.
Chelsea had died from blunt force trauma, not asphyxiation. If the sex was consensual, why were her leggings ripped at the crotch and her shoulder straps torn?

The prosecution said that Daniel had seen Chelsea was alone and had tricked her into getting into his car. Easels displayed hundreds of photos of Chelsea, illustrating her life from when she was born, right up to when she died. I am truly sorry. I am sorry for what I put you through.
