A barn is one of the most amazing places for a Halloween party! If you’ve never thought of doing it before, you’re about to see why you should. Plus, I’m going to show you how to pull it off. Here are some amazing ideas to show you how to throw a Halloween party in a barn.
How To Throw A Halloween Party In A Barn
What is it about a barn that lends itself so well to a Halloween party? It’s that rustic charm that just comes effortlessly to the space. However, not everyone is lucky enough to have a barn on their own property. If you’re not one of those lucky few, just visit the National Barn Alliance website where you can find barns near you that are available to rent for a variety of events.
Now here are some ideas to inspire your Halloween party in barn!
Part of the charm of using a barn for your Halloween party is the multitude of spots for easy decorations. Every corner lends itself to a simple display of pumpkins or other Halloween decor. If your barn has rustic farm implements like an old wood barrel, incorporate those things into your party decor. That old wood barrel is easy to dress up with some straw and a few pumpkins in varying sizes.
Is it really a Halloween party if you don’t have a pumpkin carving contest? If you use the contest to get the party started, reserve a spot in the barn to display everyone’s creations. This is an easy way to incorporate more festive decor into your party!
Bobbing for apples is another fun activity to include at your Halloween party in a barn. Set up a station for this activity that also doubles as spooky decor.

A little-used corner of the barn is a fabulous spot for a photo booth where everyone will want to pose for spooky shots. I love the old ladder with its drippy candles on every rung! Ripped lengths of cheesecloth provide ghostly spider webs that won’t stick to your guests.
Food options for your Halloween party in a barn are pretty endless, but I’d definitely include an assortment of candy apples. Depending on whether your party during the evening or mid-day, you might choose to offer some rustic fall recipes to warm your guests. Or have fun with a haunting display of Halloween-themed desserts.
No matter what you do for your Halloween party in a barn, let the barn help you create the perfect rustic ambience to set your party apart!
