Halloween is usually considered an event for the little ones—trick or treat and most local activities involve the whole family. But sometimes, you just have to throw an adult Halloween party and get in the spirit of the holiday with your friends. Here’s some tips for hosting the best party for festive adults.
Send Invites Early
Even if it’s a chill gathering, you want to send out invitations early so that guests have time to get a costume ready, as well as find someone to watch their kids.
Pick a Theme
Halloween is more fun with a theme. Go for a witch’s cottage with bubbling punch bowls, or a noir murder mystery, or a decrepit haunted house—your imagination is the limit.
Have a Costume Contest
In order to encourage people to come dressed up, you might want to promise some prizes for the best costumes! Have prizes for first, second, and third place, or if the party is big enough, rate by category!
Have Fun Games
Bobbing for apples, a murder mystery game, and even thematic activities like fortune-telling or, if you have trees in your backyard, a haunted trail go a long way.
Having cocktails? Looking up a few recipes for some drinks that fit the mood can make all the difference.
