Movie World War Z Party idea

Zombies have been all the rage lately and what a better idea can you think of than to have a party inspired by zombies? This party could be a ton of fun. You could take the party and make it where everyone comes as a zombie and you are celebrating the fact that you are trying to take over the world or you could mix things up and have half the guests dress as zombies and the other half dress as military, United Nations, etc.

 

Costumes for the Party

Military: Since you will not want to make your guests spend an huge amount of money just to attend you party, you can have them dress in camouflage they may already own. If they do not own any, tell them to try to keep the colors of their clothes to army greens, tans, browns, and maybe even blacks. Adding eye black is always a great costume finish.

Zombies: You can get a full zombie costume pretty cheap online. There are so many you can choose from. If would be fun if you could get your guests to all choose different costumes to make the array of zombies different and fun. You could have convicts, doctors, gangsters, cheerleaders, police officer, business man, school girl, and so on.

Food and Drink

You will want to have food for all your guests, dead and alive alike so you will want to have a good assortment of food. Finger foods work great, such as sandwiches, chicken fingers, chips and dips. You will also want to add some foods such as “finger” food (a dish that looks like a finger), bone-shaped cookies, brain cupcakes, etc. Make sure to order a cake with the World War Z theme and serve with punch.

 

The Movie

Depending on when you throw your party, if you have the ability to convince your guests to hold off on watching the movie, you could watch the movie at the party. If you have a large crowd get a projector, hang a huge white sheet, and display it outside.

The Ultimate World War Z Party Game

There is only one game that comes to mind with this party theme and that is PAINTBALL FIGHT! Make sure to hold your party either at a paintball facility or where there is enough space to combat. By having half the guests dress as zombies and the other half dress as military you will have your teams already. This will probably be the favorite portion of the party. Make sure if you decide to combat, you do not invite any sissy guests who will not participate. Let your guests know ahead of time so you will be able to get a head count of who will participate; in doing so, you can make sure both teams are even.

Your guests will never forget your World of War Z inspired party as long as they live. It will be the party everyone will compare every party to. This party theme is simple, yet a blast!
