I love when everyone goes the extra mile for a party. For instance, Halloween parties are great when the decorations are looking good, but it's even better when everyone gets involved and dresses the part! You can have all the candy and dry iced drink you want...but if no one is dressed like a Ghostbuster or a kid from Stranger Things, then is it really a party?
