This year, you're having an intimate gathering for Halloween and inviting only your two or three housemates. Together, your roomie crew is staying safe at home on the spookiest night of the year and having a very exclusive shindig in your own backyard. Since Oct. 31 is going to sneak up on us, you're already thinking of underrated backyard Halloween party ideas and attempting to put some details in place amidst the ongoing pandemic.
Look no further than this list we put together for you and your main boos. It'll deck out your backyard with funky skeletons and crafty jack-o'-lanterns, and make sure you have a full itinerary for the night. Setting up a social media-worthy movie theater in your backyard will let you all watch the classic films you grew up with, like Halloweentown and Hocus Pocus. Brewing a mocktail or two in a plastic cauldron will prep you for other fall holidays and give you something tasty to sip while you catch up on life.
Not to mention, all of these ideas will be very affordable to recreate, so you don't have to break the bank to have fun.
