How to Create Your Own Halloween Graveyard

Graveyards are a great theme for a Halloween party as they’re very spooky, especially at night.   Zombies and skeletons are breaking out of the ground, ravens are circling and so many tombstones……..and I haven’t even mentioned the ghosts yet!

If you want an amazing Halloween theme then you’ve found it here. You can even reuse the Halloween tombstones for a Gothic party if you are so inclined.

The Key to a Halloween Graveyard

What is a graveyard without tombstones marking the dead?   You can purchase some great tombstones to add to your decor or even make them yourself which is a lot of fun.

I think that if you’re looking at buying props though you should really consider the grim reaper himself –

The Grim Reaper & Tombstone

He’s standing guard over the gravestone to make sure that his work is done and no one will be rising again, however if you have a grave behind him a zombie could still be pulling him/herself out of their grave!

There are lots of different Halloween tombstones you can get including these –
