Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and even though I don’t quite have enough dedicated cannabis lovers in my life to reasonable host a Halloween weed-themed party, I have given the plan some thought… in case I never get around to it, here are my best ideas for throwing an epically cute spooky stoner shindig.
A meal plan from Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg, perhaps even using cannabis infused ingredients, but set up using Martha’s exquisite Halloween tips. I love so very much that Martha has teamed up with Snoop, because she truly is the end-all-be-all of home economics- no one does DIY Halloween better. Throw in some of her recipes with Snoop’s special twist, and you’ll have stoney dishes to die for. Ice some cream cheese frosting spider webs, ghosts and mummies onto your special brownie bites, for example.
If you have the space, a fog machine to offset the cannabis smoke in your party’s, ahem, consumption area, would provide actual creepy cover for all the cannabis clouds. Besides, who doesn’t love a good fog machine?
Customize your decorations with cute cannabis touches, like writing your favorite strains on tombstones, and adding maybe a few overgrown pot leaves wrapping around them.
Get as many blacklights as possible and leave them in weird places. Maybe even the bathroom if you’re clean enough! Who doesn’t love getting high and looking at how lit their teeth look under blacklights?
Queue up your favorite weird Halloween movies, or maybe just a smattering of the best animated scary flicks for ultimate aesthetically visual vibes, but leave it on mute. My personal favorites would be Coraline, Paranorman, The Great Pumpkin, Corpse Bride, old ghosty Betty Boop black and white flicks, and of course, The Nightmare Before Christmas. Accompany these vibes with a super sexy and seasonal playlist, such as RL Grimes’ Halloween mixes. There are at least 6 or 7 of them on Soundcloud, all at least an hour and all super bangers. Play at a lower volume for a chiller mood.
Enlist your friends, or maybe include it as a party event, to create some sort of gravity bong, steam roller, or water pipe out of a pumpkin. I really feel like their hollowed innards really lend themselves to a kind of dumb, but hilarious, ingenious function of a seasonal pumpkin bong. And think of how impressed your biggest cannabis fans will be! Just make sure you change that water semi-frequently… don’t want any leaking pumpkins putting a damper on the night.
As a host, provide some fun activities beyond just rolling blunts… like a blunt rolling contest, in addition to the classic costume contest, of course. Play drinking games, but instead of drinking, the loser has to take a bong rip or a dab. Play pong, but instead of beer, buy some infused beverages to fill the cups. Of course, this doesn’t have to be an anti-drinking occasion, but I’ve always dreamt of a party that embraced cannabis in the same way as alcohol.
