12. Spooky, interactive storytelling tour πŸ‘€

How does a virtual walking tour around one of the world's most historical cities sound? It's a great option if your group prefers a more low-key, spooky way to hang out.

Sit back, watch, and learn as Plague Doctor, A. Schmansky, transports your group to the city of Prague circa 1713. In the original dress of a Plague doctor, your host will tell you all about the plague and answer questions along the way, stopping by the Charles Bridge, the Old Town, and the Jewish Quarter.

5 extra tips tips for the best virtual Halloween party πŸ’‘

1. Set the vibes with Halloween Zoom backgrounds πŸ–Ό

Zoom backgrounds are always a fun way to add a Halloween dΓ©cor to your video call! Send out a link or create a shared file of Halloween Zoom backgrounds for your team. A few fun ideas include:

  • Iconic horror movie scenes 🎬
  • Pumpkin patches πŸŽƒ
  • Tombstones πŸͺ¦


2. Don't forget the costumes! πŸ‘—

3. Send your team Halloween candy & Halloween themed food 🍫

Is it even a Halloween party without candy? We'll answer this for you: no!

Give your team the best virtual Halloween by sending treats straight to their front door. If your group is small enough, you can get extra personal and survey everyone for their favorite candy. You wouldn’t want to risk sending candy corn to someone who likes chocolate, would you?Β 


4. Create a Halloween playlist 🎡

All the best Halloween parties need a soundtrack. Curate a list of spooky songs for the day's festivities. Ask team members to send over their favorite song choices and compile them all into one big Halloween party playlist.

If the Halloween spirits get to your head, the playlist could lead to a virtual dance party. Imagine everyone doing the creep while watching their coworkers and friends sing the likes of "Thriller!" and "Monster Mash" β€” hopefully in costume!‍


5. Ask your team members for their virtual Halloween ideas πŸ€”

The best virtual Halloween party will be the one your team wants to attend! Consider asking your employees what they want to do for their Halloween party.

Some may prefer Halloween games, like a virtual escape room, while other people would enjoy a virtual tour. Getting your team involved in your party planning is a surefire way to throw a successful virtual Halloween party!
