Tips for Throwing a Successful Adult Halloween Party

Have you ever thought that Halloween was just for kids? With the holiday being famous for dressing up and trick-or-treating, it’s easy to have that mindset. But not anymore! This guide will show you how to have a spooky good time by throwing a classier Halloween Party that all of your adult friends will enjoy.

GIVE YOUR COCKTAILS A HAIR-RAISING TWIST

Take a spooky twist on a classic garnish. These bloody vampire cocktails are sure to impress your guests. Use red food coloring to make any cocktail of your choice a bloody sensation while garnishing with a set of vampire fangs to take your party drinks to the next level.

MAKE YOUR PORTRAITS AN EERIE DISPLAY

Give your photos a chilling new look by adding antique black frames to your photos. You can even switch out your photos for more fitting photos you find online. And if you don’t want to switch out your photos, just add a layer of black lace over the frame for a haunting appearance. 

DON’T FEAR BLOOD RED

Red Velvet is all the rage this time of year. Coat your cake in white icing and drizzle blood red icing over the top and sides for a sinister look. And if you want to take it up a notch, place a sharp knife at the top of your cake for an added effect.

PUT A TRANCE ON YOUR GUESTS WITH FESTIVE TREATS

These swirly lollipops are the perfect treat to offer your guests. Just add ribbon around the sticks and even add a spooky custom label. Display them in a witches hat or cauldron. These spooky treats will give your guests something to enjoy on the way home.

PUMPKINS ARE FOR MORE THAN JUST CARVING

Who needs a punch bowl when you’ve got a plethora of pumpkins? Just cut off the top of a large pumpkin, scoop out and clean the insides, and you’re left with a festive bowl for all of your Halloween party drinks. 

PAINTING IS THE NEW CARVING

Skip all of the messiness of carving by painting your pumpkins. Add stripes or diamonds to create a sophisticated look to your decorations. You can keep it festive by sticking with black, white and orange color schemes. 

GIVE YOUR GUESTS A HAND

This is an easy way to add a frightening twist to your Halloween party. Fill a rubber glove with water and put it in the freezer until it turns to ice. Carefully remove the glove from the ice, and then you’re left with a spooky way to chill your festive punch. 

VINTAGE IS ALL THE FRIGHTENING RAGE

Vampires, goblins, and monsters aren’t the only way to add a spooky edge to your party. If those things aren’t your style, try adding skulls, crows, and old maps and pictures to your decorations list. This is a great way to add a haunting feel to your festivities. 

CAST A SPELL ON YOUR GUESTS WITH CUSTOM CANDELABRAS

Don’t know what to do with your empty wine bottles? Turn them into elegant and festive candelabras. Just paint the bottles black and place black stick candles to the opening of the bottle. These make the perfect spooky yet classy display for your guests to admire.
