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 Halloween Codeword, 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!
