Throwing a halloween party for kids is one thing. Throwing a spooky halloween party for adults is another thing entirely! If you want to make this party fun for adults, you really need to go all out and make sure your bases are covered. Here’s what you need to do:
Decide Where To Throw Your Party
Where to throw your party is very important. Would you rather have it in a venue outside of your home? This could mean you can invite more people, and you won’t need to worry about your belongings getting broken or damaged in any way. However, having it at home is usually easier and a little more intimate. It all depends on the kind of party you’d like to have.
Send Out Invites ASAP
Make sure you send out your invites ASAP. Some people have work and other commitments, which could stop them from attending if you don’t tell them about it early enough. Make sure you include what they should wear, where it is, and other important info. Choose a design that suits the mood of your party. Somewhere like Invitation Box could inspire you when it comes to design.
Come Up With Your Own Halloween Cocktail And Punch Bowl
As this is an adult halloween party, make sure you have your own halloween cocktail. You could choose something reminiscent of Snow White’s poisoned apple, or make your own. You could even have an acid green punch bowl. Make sure there’s plenty to go around and they go with the theme of the night.
Make Crowd Pleasing Snacks
You don’t need to feed your guests a sit down meal. You could simply create a few crowd pleasing snacks to keep everybody going. Have a mix of sweet and salty foods so that everybody can find something they like. You don’t necessarily need to make the food look gross either! There are lots of ideas online for you to use.
Watch The Scariest Film You Can Find
Why not watch the scariest film you can find? You’ll all feel much braver if you’re together. Even if you don’t watch it properly, it could make a good background for your party. If you don’t want to do that, at least make sure you have a halloween playlist.
Consider A Murder Mystery
Murder mysteries could be a good way to give your halloween party more of a theme. You basically play it like one big game. You show up in character, and don’t get out of character all night. Different murder mysteries have different rules and things, so make sure you find the right one for you.
Set The Tone With Your Lighting And Decor
Use your lighting and decor to make an impact on your guests. Using traditional candles in old wine bottles looks great. You don’t need to paint everywhere orange. You can have a demure black and white theme, and include some metallic elements for a glamorous feel. You don’t necessarily need to spend much on decor if everything else is in place.
