Set the scene for your spooky and haunted Halloween party by choosing the right Halloween party invite wording. The message on your invitation sets the tone so your guests know what to expect at the party. 

Haunting and terrifying phrases make it clear the night is all about frights. On the other hand, sweet wording can make it more appropriate for parties with young children. Either way, you can match your phrasing and invitation design to create the perfect invite for your Halloween hangout.
