The Heaven and Hell party is all about exposing people’s inner devilishness or innocence. It’s always a treat to see who comes dressed up as what, and their are usually some surprises!
In order to set up for a Heaven and Hell party one must decorate at least two rooms. One must be decorated for Heaven, and one for Hell. Each room will try to adhere to the theme of Heaven and Hell. For examples see the materials list for each room below.
To decorate the heaven room gather as many white sheets, pillows, streamers, and other fluffy cloud-like or otherwise heavenly materials you can find. Stuff them in a room, and then give them a slightly bluish glow with a black light (but keep the regular lights on of course). If you really want to go all out, try anything you can to make the room as ethereal as you possibly can.
Without exception the hell room needs to be as dark as possibly with sparsely populated dim lighting. The lighting that is present should be something dim, and hellish in color. A reddish orange lava lamp can often times set the mood. You can decorate the hell room much like you would with dark colored sheets, pillows, and streamers.
Whether dressing as angel or a devil, girls will often dress as scantily as they can. Cute halos and devils horns are always welcome accessories. If girls really want to get into the theme they can buy angels wings etc. to embellish their costume.
Guys typically don’t dress up as extensively as the girls. However, guys can always wear pointy tails, pitchforks, and heavenly beards. These are sure to spark conversation.
Try to color coordinate drinks for the people in the heaven and hell rooms. For example you can use the following drinks. Don’t be afraid to try and brainstorm your own and even invent your own drink though!
- Pina Colada with Blue Curacao
- Blue Dolphin
- Natty Ice
- Any light colored, blue, or white drink.
- Crandberry Vodka
- Jack and Coke
- Any dark, black, or red colored drink.
Music is up in the air for this party. If you have an especially large house you can probably get away with playing different music in each of the rooms. However, if you have a small apartment or can’t pull off different music in rooms you can always play a nice mixture of naughty and nice tunes.
